NICOLAI has been building mountain bikes for over 20 years, and for over 10 years electric assisted ‘eMTB’. The question “Who needs that?” or the quote “I am still too fit for that,” is rarely heard today. Why? Because people who are interested in e-bikes quickly learn that riding an eMTB is still sport. The advantages are obvious: differences in fitness between friends are levelled, the range is increased and ultimately, you can have longer riding time and pleasure. For this year, Nicolai’s eMTB called the EBOXX-2019 is developed and produced precisely for this riding experience. This is a special product because Nicolai is one of the few remaining companies to produce bicycle frames in Germany. In our own factory, all components are CNC-milled from high-quality aircraft aluminium and precisely welded together. The high-quality welding beads have established themselves as a trademark in the industry. A Nicolai bike can therefore also be recognised without a logo. All in all, the bike has unrivalled and incomparable riding performance. The reason lies in the sum of all the (big) little things, which we would like to explain now:

BOSCH CX mit KIOX

EFFECTIVE with BOSCH

Nicolai reflects on a long and close cooperation with the technology company Bosch. Therefore we continue to use the strong Bosch CX motor with specially-tuned mountain bike software in the EBOXX bike. New for 2019 is the KIOX on-board computer with all the functions a real rider needs.

 

GATES CARBON DRIVE

Clean. Smooth. Strong.

Forget the days of oil-smeared chains and join the Gates Carbon Drive Revolution. Clean, smooth, robust and light. These are the advantages of the Gates Carbon Drive™ system. The carbon reinforced belts are as stiff as a chain, have a longer life, run dry without lubrication and are virtually maintenance free. With an Ebike, the motor power and human power must be transmitted together to the rear wheel.

5 Frame sizes

Flexible production

The manufacturing of Nicolai products in Germany gives Nicolai the necessary flexibility to adapt its products to the special needs of its customers. A correct posture on the bike can only be achieved by selecting the right frame size. The 5 frame sizes S,M,L,XL and XXL offer the right product for every customer between 1.55 and 2.10 meters tall. For a low step through height we manufacture the “S” frame with a round top tube and all other models M to XXL with trapezoidal top tube.

ROHLOFF

NEVER BEFORE HAS SWITCHING BEEN SMARTER AND MORE COMFORTABLE.

The new Rohloff E-14 transmission sets standards for shifting e-bikes – shifting has never been more comfortable. Combined with the Bosch motor, the unique fast shifting performance and easy operation is a pleasure to use. One push on the button, and the drive removes load from the system, and the Rohloff hub switches electrically. Hold down the button and the E-14 shifts all 14 gears in a fast 3-speed sequence. And when the trail forces you to stop , it automatically returns to the starting gear. For 2019, we now have improved the position of the electronic trigger to achieve the best intuitive operation with the thumb.

SUSPENSION

Payload of up to 150 KG

The rear end of a mountain bike chassis is not a structural rigid component. It is exposed to extreme loads during off-road driving. That’s why we only use the best suspension components from the US specialist Fox. Typical critical points are also the ball bearings, which ensure low breakaway torque and optimum response in the joints.

#GEOLUTION

“We don’t care about trends! All that matters is lap times, riding pleasure, safety and the physical facts.” This quote is our approach to the development of new mountain bikes. This mission statement has made us one of the most innovative bicycle companies in terms of chassis performance, steering dynamics and geometry.

7020-T6 Aluminium

Aluminium is not Aluminium

We at Nicolai exclusively use the alloy 7020-T6 (AlZn4,5Mg1) for our frames. Compared to our competitors, who mostly use aluminium 6061-T6, this grade has much better strength values.

Swing mutator

The MUTATOR is a newly developed component on the rear swing arm, which combines many functions in a single component:

The mutators are available in different lengths (33, 41 und 47mm). In this way, only by replacing a mutator can the length of the swingarm “grow with” the frame height according to the GEOMETRON concept.

WELDING TECHNOLOGY

A NICOLAI IS ALWAYS RECOGNIZABLE BY ITS WELDS.

For each model and each frame size we have designed its own welding device, a so-called frame gauge. Here, the pipe sets and the turned and milled parts fit together precisely, in order to be tacked by our welders at precisely defined points and in exact sequence, and then welded in several passes by TIG (tungsten inert gas) in order to minimize distortion and distortion. Our evenly flat scaled welds are produced by a very slow welding speed and, unlike with applied seams, cause a deep fusion of the material.

ANGULAR CONTACT BEARINGS

4 WAY SEALED

Der Hinterbau eine Fullsuspension-Bikes ist kein statisch steifes Bauteil und ist im Fahrbetrieb extremen Belastungen ausgesetzt. Kritische Punkte sind die Kugellager, welche für ein geringes Losbrechmoment und optimales Ansprechverhalten des Fahrwerks sorgen. Um die Wartungsintervalle des Rahmens zu verlängern setzten wir bei Nicolai Produkten ausschließlich auf vollrollige, doppeltgedichtete Kugellager. 

Rado

Rear Aligning Dropout

So that you can hit every lane on the trail, we mount a form-fit sliding, exchangeable dropout for track and camber adjustment on all frames. Due to the differently milled, right dropouts for adjusting the lintel, the rear only needs to be slightly readjusted after installation. This takes the strain off the material. The respective lintel height is milled into the RADO with the digits 0, 1, 2 or -1 and -2. After the toe and camber have been set, the RADO is fixed ex works with a pin. This makes the original setting easily reproducible during replacement. This is the only way we can guarantee that NICOLAI products work precisely on the track.

COLOR VARIETY

Extralove

With a NICOLAI frame, you decide the design. Every Nicolai frame can be produced in any colour according to your preferences. Choose from different frame colours, anodised colours for reversing levers and pull holders as well as frame decor to add your individual touch to the frame.

TAILOR MADE

WE MANUFACTURE YOUR CUSTOM-MADE FRAME

You can order, pay for and pick up your tailor made frame directly from us or from your Nicolai dealer. For technical details, please contact us directly. First we need to know why you want to ride a custom-made frame. Most of the reasons lie in the past.

MANUFACTURING QUALITY

Made in Germany

The manufacturing quality itself is not yet an added value for a customer. The following two added values “durability & precise driving characteristics”result from production quality. Only if the welds are welded deep into the root and have no notches, a bike frame can withstand the impacts from the ground for many years without breaking. Precise riding characteristics are achieved when the rear wheel is precisely straight to the front wheel and even a layman notices that an oblique bike rides strangely (but usually he thinks it’s because of his riding ability).

10 YEARS SPARE PARTS AVAILABILITY

If after a few years of hard work a bearing on a Nicolai frame needs to be replaced, a RADO needs to be replaced due to a fall or a frame needs a new coating, the NICOLAI service staff is the right contact. Since we at NICOLAI manufacture all small parts on our machines, we can also produce spare parts for older models if required. We therefore guarantee spare parts availability of at least 10 years for all Nicolai products.
