NS Bikes (Poland) - Press Release: This is what we were all waiting for! The most beloved dirt models of 2021 NS collection are here! Three different bikes, each having unique features developed with NS riders to provide the best possible feeling when riding street, dirt jumps or pump tracks. Read more to see what's new!
All the 2021 range enjoys the professional-level geometry used with great success in the Decade frame. The aftermarket frame’s chosen by the most technical and advanced riders of Crankworx or the FMBF Tour – Dawid and Szymon Godziek or Max Fredriksson. The Decade’s a superb frame, recognised for its responsiveness, light weight and durability. Because of the Decade’s huge success in 2020 – it sold out! – we’ve applied its geometry to all the dirt bikes in the 2021 NS Bikes range.
2021 NS Metropolis:
Love the timeless, unique quality of cromoly at the heart of your dirt bike? Then look no further than the ever-popular Metropolis NS range. Steel tubes and a svelte aesthetic work with geometry and components chosen by our sickest riders.
The Metropolis range receives a lighter and reinforced steel frame for 2021 with the geometry of each model, from the M1 to the M3, based on the award-winning NS Decade frames. 100%. No short cuts. The very same as ridden by the Godziek brothers and Max Fredriksson.
All models now come with tapered headtube as standard, giving the flexibility to upgrade down the line with a model like Pike’s DJ or FOX’s 831 fork. As for individual standouts...
Metropolis 1 comes with the most advanced spec across the range. It’s an unrivalled package specially selected by the finest dirt riders – a beautiful steel bike that’s ready from day one to unleash the most raucous tricks and super-charged jumps. That’s why it gets an incredibly light X-Fusion Slant 34mm-stanchion fork, tapered steerer tube, 15mm thru axle and brand-new Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes.
Metropolis 2 delights in a serious upgrade that’ll take fly on the track, in the wild or on the streets. X-Fusion’s lightweight 32mm-stanchion fork meets a tapered steerer tube and 15mm thru axle. (That’s right – an incredible upgrade from the 9mm version of 2020.) Shimano’s new Deore hydraulic brakes complete an awesome package.
Metropolis 3 is the most affordable bike in the range and will be many riders’ first proper dirt bike. But rest assured, cutting price doesn’t mean cutting fun as this is one exhilarating ride. The 2021 edition gets a stronger cromoly frame that’s double- butted upfront to reinforce it where most needed, namely the headtube area. Like its siblings, the design is based on the higher-level Decade.
2021 NS Movement:
The 2021 Movement range is all about lightweight alloy frames and oversized tubes. Every dirt bike in the Movement line-up is nailed on to send you higher and faster thanks to the game-changing geometry first seen on NS’s incredible Decade bikes. There are further subtle but effective upgrades in durability and stability. Which is what a Movement rider demands as the stiffness and responsive flow is spot-on for advanced riders who get a buzz from hitting smooth dirt lines time and time again. Its looks are damn hot, too. In short, you’re given everything you’d expect from a pro-level dirt bike in 2021.
Movement 1 is armed with a lightweight X-Fusion Slant 34mm-stanchion fork and tapered steerer tube. A 15mm axle guarantees bulletproof stability while new Shimano Deore hydraulic brakes ensure reliable and trusted stopping power.
Movement 2 enjoys a major update thanks to the X-Fusion RC32 100mm fork, tapered steerer tube and, unlike 2020’s 9mm thru axle, the Movement 2 now comes with a 15mm version. Shimano’s new and improved Deore hydraulic brakes complete a stellar package.
Movement 3 is a great-value alloy dirt bike whose heart is the Decade geometry seen on more expensive models. The tapered headtube is a great addition as you can then upgrade the forks down the line. This will be key for Movement 3 riders as, for many, this will be their first dedicated dirt bike.
2021 NS Zircus:
The Zircus is the most affordable bike in the NS range. It’s a bike that’ll provide an adrenaline-charged gateway to adventure, whether you’re playing on a pump track or cruising around the city. The Zircus is suitable for all, though ticks every box for new, younger riders who are learning an array of tricks, from bunnyhops to trackstands. The optional rear derailleur hanger makes this the most versatile bike in the NS range.
Though the Zircus’s new and tough lightweight frame isn’t dirt-bike approved, the geometry seen on the higher-end NS Decade dirt bikes. Its tapered headtube means you can upgrade forks in the future if you want to, though you’ll love Suntour’s reliable XCM 100m fork. The new microdrive drivetrain with small 26t chainring is a superb update for entry-level riders, while the rear hub wisely retains the super-strong 10t driver that’s used on the more expensive Metropolis 3 and Movement 3 models. It’s lighter, more durable and more stylish than ever before. Mechanical disc brakes offer reliability and ease of maintenance. This really is a wonderful bike for the city, off-road and in pumptracks.
