Purebred for Downhill
Over the last 23 years, Nicolai has been able to gather the experience of countless races that enable them to build the best bikes today. The ION G19 was developed exclusively for downhill racing. World Cup rider Jack Reading: “The ION G19 changes the rules of the game. This new and revolutionary geometry makes the ION G19 the fastest and safest bike I have ever sat on. That thing is a weapon.” The Geolution geometry makes this downhill bike faster and more controllable for the beginner and the professional.
With the ET-Key, the steering head angle can be set to 61.5 degrees for fast World Cup courses and 62.2 degrees for shorter and narrower courses. Since only double-bridge forks are used, Nicolai has integrated rubber stops on the head tube casting, which simultaneously guide gearshift and brake cables. The high-quality technical ingredients like EC49 head tube, 148mm rear suspension width, 83mm bottom bracket width, oversized down tube and 4-fold sealed industrial ball bearings at all bearing points ensure a light 16.2 kg total weight (L) and that you can have many years of fun!
Of course, you can also choose between robust powder coatings, light anodised colors and our already legendary raw finish for the ION G19 frame. In addition, you can add even more visual value to your bike with Nicolai Extra Love parts. Even custom geometry is possible for an extra charge, although we honestly do not know what there is still to improve in our GEOLUTION geometry.
