BikeRadar caught up with titanium specialists Van Nicholas at the recent Eurobike trade show, here we learned what to expect from the brand in 2016.
The Boreas is a new race bike from the Dutch firm; it sports a comfort-enhancing 27.2mm seatpost and has room for 28mm rubber. Van Nicholas also presented its new 650b plus hardtail – the Revelstoke, which has been designed to accommodate 3in tyres but doubles up as a 29er. The Revelstoke built for Eurobike also featured an exciting prototype fork. The single-sided, dual-crown rigid unit was, naturally for Van Nicholas, produced from titanium and is likely to end up a production item.
The brand also showed off a new touring bike complete with a pinion gearbox transmission along with the latest version of its value focused Ventus road bike. The Ventus is now available with Shimano’s 105 11-speed groupset, and at €1,999 complete it appears astonishing value.
Van Nicholas was also proud of was its new online configurator, which allows customers to build a custom spec bike that can then be ordered through the company’s dealer network.
