AUDAÇ

FROM € 3295

Have you ever wished you had a bike that could do everything? Which would adapt to any terrain and any climate? The Nua Audaç is the answer to your dreams. Equally perfect for urban commuting, weekend trekking, touring, or mountain adventures, it is our do-it-all, fully equipped bike.

FRAME

Adaptable to almost any style of bike, the Nua Ti-CORE is made from Gr.9 3Al-2,5V Titanium. It comes complete with belt port, sliding dropouts, internal cable routing, oversized 44mm headtube, disc brake postmount, integrated seatpost clamp, and mounting holes for mudguard, rack and 2 water cages. It is compatible with singlespeed transmissions or Rohloff and Alfine internal gear hubs. Once the order process is underway, we'll ask for measurements and help you to decide on the perfect frame size for your needs. You can choose an adaptable version (singlespeed, Rohloff and Alfine compatible) or a specific version - more elegant but less evolutive - compatible with only your transmission choice. Please let us know in the commentaries section below.

FORK

Our unicrown titanium fork is a work of art in itself. This version sports a post mount for a 160mm disc brake, eyelets to fit a mudguard.It is compatible with a 9mm quick-release wheel axle and features internal routings for brake housing (in the left leg) and for the electric wires of an eventual dynamo hub (in the right leg).

HEADSET

A top quality, worry-free semi-integrated headset for head tubes with a 44mm internal diameter. German made, with angular ball bearings in CNC machined aluminium caps.

GEARING

Robust and super-silent, even when coasting, this hub, with its 307% range, will serve in even the steepest urban environments as well as for weekend excursions.

+175 €

Robust and super-silent, even when coasting, this hub, with its 409% range, is the equivalent of a modern 1x11 derailleur chain system, but with the advantage of an internal gear hub. An oil change every 5000 km and you’re good to go.

+765 €

Legendary among long-distance and urban riders for its extreme reliability and longevity, this nearly maintenance free internal gear hub has a huge 526% range so that you always can find the perfect gear for the situation. As with all internal gear hubs it has the advantage of allowing you to change gears even when standing still. It’s not cheap but over time it’s a seriously good investment as you will never have to align a derailleur again, just have the hub serviced for oil replacement once a year at your local shop. Rohloff claims it to last up 300 000km!

TRANSMISSION

Extremely durable, this drive system performs in the harshest conditions. Like all Gates drives it’s clean, silent, and virtually maintenance-free. Also, it doesn’t rust, which is a huge advantage in icy (and therefore salty) or wet climates. We combine it with Shimano Alfine cranks and a Shimano Hollowtech II BB.
