Nicolai Helius AM – Lightweight Master.

October 12, 2011

Jeremy, one of the few top Trials rider in Singapore recently acquired a Nicolai Helius AM frame kit and had it build up by us.

Intended by Jeremy, he wanted a light weight trail bike with the possibility to throw around a few Trials move here and there. Hence, we recommaned the Nicolai Helius AM as the base chassis for him as it’s robust possibility goes all the way to Free-riding – Proven in the AMT videos by Nicolai with Marco Hosel and Frank, two of the world’s most renowned Nicolai Riders.

Luckily for him a very lightly used AM frame came up for sale and Jeremy too no chances, we measured him and he fits perfectly for this frame. Light and sensitive suspension from DT swiss to take care of trail rides while the Truvative Hammerschidmt for maximum clearance for Trials riding induced applications.

Reliable drive train from the new 10 speed X9 range and stopping power comes from a set of MAGURA Marta SL brakes. Wheels are build with the all time favorite Hope Pro 2 hubs laced with light weight Philwood 15G race spokes and ZTR flow rims.

You may wonder, how are these light weight parts gonna sustain the “jumps” and “Trials” that Jeremy going to execute? Well you will have to see his riding in real life as he may weigh 50+ kilograms, he’s even more lightweight on his riding with his soundless landing and hops.

We call him – The Lightweight Master.
