The launch of the Fuzz was a huge milestone moment for NS. It was a complex project that proved to be a really serious challenge for our team. But looking back, we have to admit it – it’s a f&^%# great bike!
The Fuzz has been thrashed and flipped by Sam Pilgrim and it’s proved itself in the racing environment too, taking podiums at major DH events worldwide. Racers have clocked their personal records on this bike and freeriders have taken lines that they didn’t believe were possible.
The geometry is truly modern – it’s low, slack, has a tight rear end and a long front triangle. The 4-bar Horst link suspension has a significant amount of rearward axle movement which helps to absorb square faced bumps. There is also a fair amount of anti-squat built into the design to counter pedal-induced bob. The shock, which is the most heavy part of the frame is tucked away near the BB to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible.
The Fuzz 1 is our top of the line build, equipped with a Rock Shox Boxxer Team up front and a Vivid R2C in the back, super strong Sram Code R brakes, world class SDG Circuit Mtd saddle, a 1×10 drivetrain and a full set of aftermarket NS Bikes components, including the Evidence Plus handlebar, Direct Mount stem and high-end Enigma 650B rims.
