Bike info

The Synonym TR is a game changer in the lightweight Trail category. Radical geometry and a beefy 120mm fork presented in an ultra light weight package gives the rider a unique experience. It burns trails unlike anything else on the market. All available alternatives either have old-school geometry, or are heavy and slow to pedal. Most riders who have tried this bike swear that they can go just as fast on downhill trails as on their standard, “big” Trail / All Mountain bikes. This is because the limiting factor is not the suspension travel, but the position that the rider has on the bike and the way it handles. This amazing ride impression that riders have reported is backed up by lap times and measured segments. It simply blows everything else out of the water.

Before you say: “WTF?! Is NS making an XC bike??” - stop. This is NOT just another XC bike. This is something completely different! The geometry of the Synonym is MILES away from any bike that you can find on the market. The the slack head angle, massive reach and very steep seat tube this bike descends better than any XC bike out there, it climb like a goat and charges like a bull on the flats. We deeply believe that short travel hardcore, lightweight XC / Trail bikes are the most fun you can have on two wheels when you don't have a chairlift. This year many companies have launched bikes in this category, but even if they claim to be progressive, they are actually very conservative old school XC bikes with bigger forks. The Synonym is different - it's a totally new concept designed from the ground up. Everyone we know who has tried this bike has been simply blown away. This really is a game changer in the XC / lightweight Trail segment.
