Nicolai Helius AC – Subtle is Not Boring.

December 20, 2011

Nicolai calls it “the perfect all rounder”, and we couldn’t agree more.

Thanks to a lightweight, low slung and compact frame, with adjustable rear travel up to 146mm, the Helius AC really climbs as well as it descends, making it ideal as a Cross-Country/All-Mountain bike.

This current build weighs in at 13.8 kg, perfect for a long travel Cross-Country bike that the owner required it for.

Anodised Black was chosen for the entire frame as the owner wanted a fairly stealthy look. As the RockShox Sektor RL Solo Air up front was only available in white, we couldn’t possibly let it slip, so we had it painted in matt black!

Together with the Anodised Red rocker links, bearing covers, cable guides, and the Hammerschmidt Pimp Kit that you see here…

…components with subtle red accents were selected to provide the Helius AC with some colour.

Don’t all these little details just make you want to take a closer look at it?
