Expirience with the NS Bikes DEFINE AL 160

NS Bikes DEFINE AL 160 Review If you buy the NS Bikes Enduro, you will really feel suitably prepared for on extremely technical trails. Because that´s exactly what it was developed for. With 15,1 kg weight for the complete bike, the NS Bikes DEFINE AL 160 joins the lighter bikes that you can buy for under under 4500 Euro. Most bikes in its class are heavier. The trend towards more high speed stability geometries stops with NS Bikes. Good! Because with this balanced handling model, you are equipped for all situations on the trail. If you want to get ahead efficiently and quickly, you will welcome the sporty riding position. On the downhill, however, the NS Bikes Enduro is left in the dust by its competitors. The easy rolling tires, the 455 wide range of gears and the lock-out capacity of the suspension underline the sporty ambitions in the uphill. Check the size chart exactly before buying: the DEFINE AL 160 sizing runs big.
