KENSHŌ

FROM € 3395

The Nua Kensho is our sporty and sexy gearbox-equipped urban racer, made to bomb along the city streets in style. It features the low maintenance of a single-speed, but sports the versatility of (at least) the six gears provided by a sturdy Pinion C1.6 gearbox paired to a Gates belt drive. To make this extravagant titanium commuter fast and light, we equipped it with a responsive yet comfortable carbon fork and a stealth-black pair of Crank brothers Cobalt 1 wheels shoed with super slick 700x35 Schwalbe Kojak tires. A classy and timeless Thomson stem and seatpost will satisfy the most discerning eye. The cherry on the cake: this speedy urban bike is safely stopped by aggressive Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes. Coming from the mountain bike world, they provide totally city-proof braking power. Are you ready to tear up the asphalt?
