Nicolai’s ION G16 features their proven longer, lower, slacker GEOLUTION geometry in a long-travel package built for 27.5˝ wheels. If you’re the type of rider who appreciates a bike that stays grounded during the steepest and most technical descents but can just as easily pop off lips and clear doubles, you’ll appreciate the ride of G16. This is an enduro bike with a ride quality and level of confidence that evokes the ride feel a dual-crown DH rig.
With the ET-Key, ION G16 offers the possibility to drive two different damper installation lengths (222 x 70 and 216 x 63) and thus has two suspension travel options (155 or 175 mm) without affecting the geometry. With so much versatility, ION-G16 covers a massive range of applications from enduro races to the bike park or even a local downhill race…this is a big bike ready to take on anything.
