What’s stated as being included in the specs.
Steel Is Real
Jumping on a chromoly steel hardtail after riding any other hardtail is like a cracking open a cold drink after a long hot day, refreshing and relieving. The chromoly steel construction of the NVHT lands you right in that sweet spot of high performance and comfort. The harmonics of chromoly steel, the physics going on that we can’t observe with the naked eye lend to a smooth and stately ride quality that no other material matches in hardtail mountain bike frames. Less noise, less chatter, less vibration, more support and more compliance. An almost magical blend ready for a bad ass rider looking for a new challenge or a new rider excited to go full send on a quality rig for their first bike, is that you?
Go Fast – No Rear Squish Necessary
Imagine having a hardtail that feels like a downhill bike but pedals up just as well as any other hardtail out there. Hardcore yet really serious about dominating the hardtail world. Thanks to modern geometry, you can feel more confident on your next chromoly steel hardtail frame. Give the NVHT a rip down your favorite trail and it will give you smiles in return. The lower seat tube allows more leg travel to take up the lack of a shock with your legs. This gives you more room between your rear-end and the saddle. All of this means that NVHT was designed to allow you to maneuver around the center of gravity for optimal handling and feel. Don’t worry if you have long legs! We have dropper seat posts with 210mm (8.25″) travel, so you’re covered!
Beat Your Friends – On a Chromoly Steel Hardtail
Other hardtails are still stuck in the past of the low travel single crown forks. They still cling to those old-school low travel forks like antique collector fiends trying to find their next frame on the antique show. We drop-kicked that backwards mentality and sent our chromoly hardtail into the future with longer travel fork geometry that keeps the wheelbase longer as it goes through the travel for stability and speed without loss of efficiency and playfulness. The NVHT chromoly steel works on all trails from leisurely smooth XC to aggressive, pucker inducing DH and believe it or not, even DJ sessions too! The NVHT chromoly hardtail is long, low and slack so you’re planted for speed, centered for hitting drops, rocks and roots and balanced for corners and sharp turns. Lacking a rear shock doesn’t mean your frame should lack performance.
Long in the Front / Short in the Back + Pedal Beast
We set out to make a chromoly steel hardtail mountain bike frame that was balanced. Giving you the confidence of a full suspension mountain bike frame but not the high cost. The seat tube angle is just right, not too steep, not too slack. It stays out of your way for descents but in a nice spot for aggressive climbing techie aggressive trails.
