Nicolai Saturn TCC XC Full Suspension

5/5 (2 Reviews)


Product Description

The Saturn TCC is a full suspension frame for cross country and marathon racing, normally the range of uses for hardtail frames. The difference here is the Saturn’s 83 mm of rear travel that enhances comfort and safety and allows you to ride for longer as well as faster on the downhills. Through the use of light weight Eston Ultralight tubing, VCS light stays, and hollow-weld CNC’d parts, the Saturn carries only a tiny weight penalty of 500 g when compared to a hardtail.

Strengths:    light weight, beautiful welds, strong and fast.

Bottom Line:   
It doesn't get any better than this.This noble steed is the best climbing and cross country mountain bike you can find. The bronze anodized finish is beautiful. The DT Swiss rear shock is amazing even though it is not a stable platform shock. You can take this bike on any trail.

Date Reviewed: February 2, 2005

Strengths:    extra lightweight(less than 2200grs), perfect geometry and custom made, stiff and strong enough to marathons or epic races

Weaknesses:    loss of torsional rigidity when long and heavy dowhilling, but it's a Xc race bike

Bottom Line:   
this is the perfect bike for xc racer or epic racer and especialy for the high quality bikes lover thank's to the high level of welding and the perfect anodized finish.
however, the freerider will not find with this frame the good horse cos of the rear travel(100mm)and the metrics.
