NS Bikes Synonym Race 1 Suspension Bike

The NS Bikes Synonym Race 1 has its roots set-in cross-country racing with modern geometry innovations and top-level componentry for riding anywhere. Its carbon frame is equipped with short travel Fox Factory Kashima coated suspension and features modern geometry like what’s found on enduro bikes. Plus, its frame has a slack head angle, long reach and a steep seat tube for a ride that climbs easily and descents fast while you’re comfortable and in control.

Fox Factory Kashima Suspension and SRAM X01 Eagle 12-Speed Drivetrain

This full suspension trail assassin features Fox Factory 32 Kashima coated Step Cast forks, combined with a Fox Factory Float DPS rear shock. This suspension setup performs to the highest level, giving smooth suspension damping and dependable performance anywhere. Driven onwards by a SRAM X01 Eagle 12-Speed drivetrain that guarantees top-level gear shifting accuracy with a wide-ranging cassette that provides gears for anywhere on the mountain. Plus, your momentum is controlled by SRAM Level TLM hydraulic disc brakes that ensure powerful braking in all conditions,

NS Rotary Hubs, WTB Tubeless Ready Rims and Maxxis Tyres

Rolling upon NS Rotary hubs, NS Enigma Lite Tubeless Ready rims and Maxxis tubeless tyres, this stellar MTB travels fast and gives you the option to convert easily to the tubeless setup. This conversion provides even faster rolling, more grip and virtually eliminates punctures and pinch-flats. Plus, it’s equipped with a KS LEV Carbon dropper seatpost for adjustable seating positioning with adding excessive weight to the build.

The NS Bikes Synonym Race 1 Suspension Bike sets new standards for what an XC bike can be and what they can achieve – this offering from NS Bikes travels fast, keeps you upright and provides more control than you ever thought possible from a short travel bike.

When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools and plastic pedals are conveniently included in the box.

Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

  • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
