There is no denying that the NS Bikes Snabb is one of the best bikes of its kind out there. You can choose between the Trail and the Enduro version to get the bike that you need. The Snabb offers up an aluminum frame and a RockShox Pike RC fork. The bike weighs in at about 14 kg. You can expect to have to pay up for the incredible features.
It goes without saying if you are looking for a trail bike or an enduro bike, you need one that can take a lashing. These types of bikes are going to need to stand up to a considerable amount of abuse and rough terrain and not really bear the scars. With the Snabb, this is precisely what you get.
Two of the main features that really let you rip into the Snabb is the suspension and the solid frame. In particular, you can expect great suspension balance between the RockShox Monarch RT3 DebonAir and the Pike fork. This means that you can take a couple of hits and not really feel much while riding.
The overall weight of the Snabb can be a little off putting. After all, 14 kilos is nothing to sneeze at. This will not be as much of a problem as you might anticipate, however, thanks to the addition of 42t sprocket to the cassette. Despite the added weight, you are going to have exert yourself as much as you thought.
Another time cyclists worry about the weight is when you want to get to higher ground. This is precisely why we decided to see how well it fared, trying to get up the slopes. Surprisingly enough, we experienced no problems. While it is definitely better when heading downhill, the climb was not bad at all.
