Nicolai Ion ST – Green Mean Machine!

December 16, 2011

Since it’s introduction in 2008 as the successor to the Nicolai M-Pire ST, the Ion ST has been the most successful downhill frame in the Nicolai line up.  Having won countless downhill podium finishes in Europe with the Gates Nicolai Team and Conti Nicolai Team, we are pretty sure that this winning streak will continue to even greater heights in the 2012 season. It has also appeared in the Dirt 100 as one of Dirt Magazine’s 100 ultimate mountain bike products in 2009 and 2011.

The Ion ST has since been renamed as the Ion 20 for Nicolai’s 2012 catalogue, where it will join the Ion 18 and Ion 14 to complete Nicolai’s ‘Ion’ range of premium gravity full suspension frames that feature the same 4-bar linkage design.

Having just returned from Perth for his summer holidays, the owner of this Kawasaki Green Ion ST got some new wheels built. The Atomlab Pimplite rims laced to a pair of Hope Pro 2 hubs makes it a strong, reliable, and lightweight combination.
