Bike info

The Clash has been around for a while and has evolved over the years from an all-round fun bike for adults into something more like a trailbike for older kids, and later into a small freeride bike. And that’s OK because the Clash could handle all this. But we felt that the soul of the bikes was a bit confused, so for 2021, the complete Clash that we are offering can be described quite accurately as ‘a dirt jump bike with gears… and a bit more’. 

In other words - the geometry is similar to our dirt bikes so it will feel great on jumps and pumptracks. However the addition of gears and slightly more pedal friendly geometry mean that it can be also used for short commutes to school or running errands.

So in short - the Clash has gone back to the roots! And if anyone has ever wanted an NS dirt jump bike, but was put off by the relatively narrow range of applications of such a bike - the Clash is the way to go.

 

MAIN FEATURES:

Tough and light alloy frame

Tektro Novela disc brakes
NS Bikes cockpit

One size

Perfect for playing in the city, off-road and on pumptracks.

 

Learn basic MTB skills, ride to school, shred the local pumptracks, hang out with your friends on the coolest bike in the hood. The Clash bikes are built around strong responsive frames and fitted with proper MTB parts so you can push them hard and expect them to last. The fast rolling tires and aggressive geometry will provoke the rider to attack the trails at full gas. The Clash comes in 3 sizes. The 26” version will fit most teenagers and adults. The Clash JR is designed for kids around 120-140cm high and is sold with 24” wheels but can be upgraded with 26” when the time comes. The smallest Clash rolls on 20” wheels and is a fantastic bike to start with and a great platform for future upgrades.
