ARGON GLF PINION
The Argon GLF is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Don’t dismiss the GLF because it’s a hardtail; in capable hands it outstrips many all mountain full suspension bikes up and downhill.
The Argon GLF performs incredibly well thanks to our GEOLUTION geometry concept, 160 mm fork and clearance for plus size tyres, but it is still a capable all-rounder with everything you have come to expect from a modern trail hardtail.
We made it even better by adding a Pinion gear box. The huge 600% range, low and central mass and virtually maintenance free transmission improve its capabilities even further. There has never been such a fun and maintenance free hardtail before, which is exactly why we just had to build it!
Riding a hardtail is a special thing: back to the roots, engaging, and a whole lot of fun. People riding hardtails on technical trails usually know why they do it and don’t care about marketing slogans and categories. They know it’s an addictive feeling and that’s all that matters. The integrated gearbox brings even more benefits. No more ripping a rear derailleur off, lubing the chain or noisy chain slap. After riding the Argon GLF PINION you won’t want to ride another hard tail again.
GLF stands for GEOLUTION LOW FAT. It brings the GEOLUTION concept to a modern hardtail. You can read about GEOLUTION below but what you really need to know is that this geometry with a 160 mm fork and low and central mass help you to ride fast despite the lack of rear suspension.You’ll need to work a little and perhaps pick your lines more carefully but beating your friends levels of speed are still possible.The Boost rear end with clearance for aggressive tyres up to 27.5×2.8″ allows you to make the most of the extra comfort, damping and traction, but of course, you still got the option of running conventional 2.5″ tyres for more playful, direct handling. The Argon GLF is always fun, ride after ride.
The GLF PINION is also in a league of its own uphill. With its steep seat angle and not too short chainstays, the bike already climbs excellently, but with the 600% gear range of the Pinion and extra traction of the plus tyres, there is almost no limit uphill.
The Argon GLF – an extraordinary hardtail with an equally impressive drivetrain that defies convention and has plenty of fun while doing it.
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.
