ARGON FAT

ALL MOUNTAIN

from 1449.00€

Fatbikes are not for everyone, but for some they are the ultimate epitome of freedom, individualism and adventure. With the Argon FAT, we have a Fatbike hardtail in our range that not only accommodates the thickest tyres in 26-inch format (up to 4.5″), but also has a really trail-hungry geometry. You wouldn’t be the first one who only wanted a winter bike, but fell so in love with the way this trail-fat bike rides that he hunts it all year round. Even in the bike park specimens of the Argon FAT are said to have been seen. In all of this, the Argon FAT continues to be the ideal platform for classic Fatbike applications. Whether at the Iditarod Trail Race across winterly Alaska, heavily loaded on adventure bike packing tours in the remotest regions of the planet or simply on your hometrail – with the Argon FAT you always have a reliable partner at your side.

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.

Pinion Option

CONTROLLED PERFORMANCE.

Many NICOLAI models can be equipped with a Pinion GmbH gearbox on request. The transmission is low-maintenance and optimally integrated into the bicycle frame. The central centre of gravity and the lighter rear wheel bring noticeable advantages in handling, driving dynamics and rear-end performance. The transmission reacts to shift commands at lightning speed.

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.

#GEOLUTION

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

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.
