NS Bikes Synonym Race 2 Suspension Bike 2020

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.
