Nicolai Ion 20 – “Man, That’s a Lot of Gold”

February 2, 2012

Formerly known as the Ion ST, the Ion 20 is Nicolai’s premium DH frame. As mentioned in a couple of posts ago, the Ion 20 joins 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.

This Anodized Gold Ion 20 was the first that we received back in December last year for our Indonesian dealer in Manado.

Before sending it over, we prepped the frame as well as the RockShox Boxxer R2C2, that had it’s stanchions swapped with the hardened-anodised/teflon-coated ones from Fast Suspension.

The 200mm of travel (hence called the Ion 20) is provided by a custom shimmed Cane Creek Double Barrel shock that is an additional option by Nicolai.

It may be a whole lot of gold, but we’re liking it a lot!

Looking at these awesome studio shots, we can’t help but be stoked to be able to share the same love for Nicolai’s with our friends in Indonesia.
