from 9199.00€

NICOLAI have been building mountain bikes for 25 years and eMTBs for more than 10. Riders asking, “Who needs that?” or saying “I am still too fit for that” are long gone with the acceptance of eMTBs. They level the playing field between friend’s fitness levels and let you descend more in less time, making the most of your riding time. Meet the new G1-EBOXX! This is one of the only eMTBs produced in Western Europe, with our factory in the Harz Mountains, Germany. All components are CNC-milled from high-quality aircraft aluminium and precisely welded together. Our beautiful welding beads are recognised and respected across the industry. You don’t need a logo to recognise a NICOLAI! The G1-EBOXX’s ride is in a world of its own and that’s thanks to all the small details adding up:

BOSCH CX

GEN 4

The new BOSCH mountain bike engine was expected with a lot of excitement. This 4th engine generation was tested in secret for many months. Smaller, lighter, stronger and quieter are the 4 facts that summarize everything. With 2.9 kg, the engine is one of the lightest on the market. With a torque of 75 Nm, it is also one of the most powerful engines. The special MTB software ensures the finest response and performance in off-road conditions.

BOSCH 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.

EXPLORER KIT

What started off as a bit of fun for our booth at Eurobike earlier this year has turned into one of our best sellers. The Explorer Kit mated to our boundary-pushing EBOXX chassis offers a world of options to our valued Nicolai customers: An eMTB that can double as a commuter? Ride it to work and back all week, with storage, lights, and a lock. Head down to the shops to grab some groceries via your favourite trail and cruise back home with electric assist. Pedal out to your local spot with a spare battery, drop the paniers and punch out some laps before heading home. Bikepacking across the Alps? Whatever your style, this bike can do it all. The Explorer kit is probably one of the best upgrades we can offer for your EBOXX, fully fitted from the factory for only €930 (incl. assembly) – less than nominal performance upgrades like carbon-wheels or wireless shifting. The Explorer kit includes mudguards from SKS®, waterproof paniers from Ortlieb®, Supernova® lights to shine the way and a folding lock from ABUS® to keep it safe, while it stands on its own with the ESGE® kickstand. If you don’t need all of that, you can pick and choose individual parts and order the package as an aftermarket addition to your existing EBOXX.

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.

ANGULAR CONTACT BEARINGS

4 WAY SEALED

The rear end of a full suspension bike is not a statically rigid component and is exposed to extreme loads during riding. Critical points are the ball bearings, which ensure a low breakaway torque and optimum response of the chassis. In order to extend the maintenance intervals of the frame, we exclusively use full complement, double sealed ball bearings for Nicolai products.

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.

We design a unique jig for every model and frame size. The tubes and machined components are turned and milled as necessary and then mounted in the jig, fitting perfectly together. Then, these parts are tacked together by spot welding.

The frame is then welded in several passes by TIG (tungsten inert gas) to reduce distortion. By reducing the distortion as much as possible it improves the alignment of the frame. Our flat, even welds are time-consuming but ensure that the material is properly fused, improving strength.

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.

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.

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.
