Watch the Video: Nicolai Ion 20 Effigear Rides Lesotho

  May 12, 2014

Nicolai is a German brand known for its innovation, precision design and use of new technologies such as Gates Carbon Drive. Nicolai’s Ion 20 Effigear is a downhill bike built for the needs of modern cyclists. With a Gates Carbon Drive and Effigear gearbox, it tackles rough terrain without the worry of wrecking a derailleur, and the belt eliminates noisy chain slap, greasy lubrication and chain maintenance. Watch the video below to see the bike in action. Gates/Nicolai team racer Mike Schär took a side trip to the African nation of Lesotho to give his Ion 20 Effigear a workout prior to competing in the Downhill World Cup in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.
