ARGON FAT PINION
Fat Bikes are not for everyone, but for some they are the epitome of freedom, individualism and adventure. With the Argon FAT, we have a Fat Bike hardtail in our range that not only accommodates the thickest tyres in 26-inch format (up to 4.5″) but also has great trail munching geometry.
You wouldn’t be the first who only wanted a winter bike, but fell so in love with the way this trail-fatty rides that you ride it all year round. Especially under the conditions that make fat bikes the most fun – on snow or sand, a maintenance-free, encapsulated transmission makes perfect sense. Whether at the Iditarod Trail Race across Alaska, heavily loaded adventure bike packing in the most remote regions of the planet or simply on your local trails – with the Argon FAT PI you’ll always have a reliable and low maintenance bike that you can count on.
The fat you constantly encounter in everyday life consists of glycerine and monocarboxylic acids, is of vegetable or animal origin and can be saturated or unsaturated. Argon FAT PI, on the other hand, consists of AlZn4.5Mg1.5Mn, is guaranteed not to lead to weight gain even when consumed excessively… and is simply animal.
We didn’t just want to make a fat bike, we wanted to create one that would be fun on any trail all year round. The first step was to understand what makes a really good fat bike and then to think one step further. With up to 110 mm wide tyres, which are run at very low air pressures, the Argon FAT PI takes uneven ground in its stride and ‘floats’ over soft surfaces like sand and snow.
The Pinion P.12 gearbox, with its 600% gear range, along with everything else opens up completely new possibilities, but also new challenges, but still makes them fun. To make the bike a real carefree runner, the Argon FAT PI comes with the quasi maintenance-free GATES CarbonDrive belt as standard. No more degreasing and oiling the chain.
With the Argon FAT PI we have created a fat bike that is always ready for anything. You can ride through the snowy landscape in winter, enjoy sandy trails, dunes and beaches in summer or shred the trails with extraordinary flow for a hardtail.
To tension the belt, the Argon FAT PI comes with our own adjustable dropouts which can be opened on the right side.
Supplied with Pinion P1.12 transmission (or P1.18), crank arms, matching CarbonDrive sprockets and GATES belt.
Fat bike or trail bike? With the Argon FAT PI you are ready for anything.
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.
