Expirience with the NS Bikes DEFINE AL 150 2

NS Bikes DEFINE AL 150 2 Review With his 160 mm trail on the fork, the NS Bikes DEFINE AL 150 2 is ready to roll when using it as a on extremely technical trails. Especially in extremely steep terrain, this combination makes for smooth handling. Due to the interplay of a relatively long top tube and a low stack, the riding position is sporty. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the Enduro of NS Bikes doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build Enduro in the same price range that are more focused on descends. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 16,2 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. For 3499 Euro , competitors usually deliver geometries with less fun potential. Pay attention when selecting your size: the NS Bikes Fully sizing runs big.
