Description

Lal Bikes is the official distributor of the Nicolai Nucleon 16 in Canada and the United States. 

The Nicolai Nucleon 16 is the first production bike with the Supre Drive. It’s an enduro bike in the 160-180mm travel category. Its high pivot suspension makes it composed in the rough stuff, but unlike many other high pivot bikes, it has high anti-squat and an efficient drivetrain which makes it great to pedal. This speed machine is machined and welded out of aluminum in Germany by Nicolai, and it’s equipped with the Supre Drive, made by us in Canada.

This is the product page for the frame without a shock. To purchase a Nucleon frame plus Supre Drive package, the drivetrain components should also be added to your cart. If you would like us to build you a complete, custom bike, please contact us.

The shock, idler pulley, and bash plate are not included in the purchase price of the Nucleon 16 despite being shown in the product photo above.
