Nicoali Ion GPI
Pinion and Gates work with Fullsuspension

Nicolai has been one of the most innovative partners we’ve been working with since the beginning. And with their brand new Ion16 GPI the Nicolai team underlines just that once more.

And with their brand new Ion16 GPI the Nicolai team underlines just that once more. Kalle Nicolai and his engineers built a bike that hasn’t been built before: they integrated the Pinion gearbox with a Gates Carbon Drive CDX in a full-suspension bike!
The transmission of the ION 16 GPI is a centrally positioned Pinion P1.12. The power is transferred over a Gates Carbon Drive – an almost maintenance-free combination. How it works? With a new belt tensioner that is exactly tailored to fit the ION 16 GPI’s rear kinematic.
Our gearbox strongly reduces the non-suspended mass on the back wheel. The benefits ‘outweigh’ the extra weight of the system: the back wheel provides more traction and is more agile. Plus the central weight distribution improves the handling. The transmission is direct, noiseless and built to outlast the roughest rides.

The MTB-News.de test team took the first ION 16 GPI for some tough bike park riding and took a good deep look at all the details. For those who can read some German: find out how it feels to noiselessly rock the trails here:
