SÍLICE

FROM € 3590

One of the defining characteristics of our bikes is their versatility, and the Nua Sílice is probably our most versatile model yet. It could be classified as one of the new breed of Road Plus bikes, with 650B (27,5”) wheels and generously wide tyres (48mm). The upshot of this is a bike with the same dynamic performance as a standard road bike, but with a level of comfort and a capacity for absorbing impacts which allows offroad riding on almost any terrain.

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 post mount, integrated seatpost clamp, and inserts for mudguards, rack, and 2 water cages. It is compatible with single-speed 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 (single-speed, 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 comments section below.

FORK

Our light and rigid Nua CF-Gravel fork sports a full carbon fiber tapered steerer 1-1/8" to 1-1/2", and a 100x12mm thru-axle for the ultimate rigidity/weight ratio. It also has mounting holes for mudguards and internal cable routing for brake hoses. This fork is extremely lightweight at only 480g, with enough clearance for wide 700x54mm tires.

HEADSET

A top quality, ‘worry free’ headset with a semi-integrated upper part and an external lower part, for head tubes with a 44mm internal diameter. German made, with stainless steel angular ball bearings in CNC machined aluminium caps.

GEARING & BRAKES KIT

This kit was designed for those wanting a drop-bar Nua equipped with a Shimano Alfine 11 speed internal gear hub. For compatibility reasons, the Alfine on a drop-bar bike has to be used with modified Microshift levers that integrate the Alfine shifter. We use TRP Hr/Hd cable-actuated hydraulic brake calipers to provide powerful braking.

+850 €

This kit was designed for those wanting a drop-bar Nua equipped with a Rolhoff Speedhub 14-speed internal gear hub. For compatibility reasons, the Rolhoff on a drop-bar bike has to be used with a Rohbox internal gear shift box. To actuate the Rohbox smoothly, we use modified Sram Force 22 Brake levers/shifters, which also provide powerful braking power thanks to Sram Force 22 hydraulic disc brake calipers.

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.

PEDALS

Good looking and remarkably light for a platform pedal, measuring 90x90mm and weighing in at only 358g. With 10 replaceable pins per side offering excellent grip.

SPOKES

FRONT HUB

A high-end hub with cup and cone bearings. This thru-axle version allows the use of a more rigid 12x100mm wheel axle. Weighing in at only 125g, it sports center-lock disc brake rotor mounts.

TIRES

This tyre provides perfect grip for all-road and gravel use. Thanks to its 47mm wide carcass it also provides excellent comfort on any surface thanks to its large air volume, which filters bumps without increasing rolling resistance. Tubeless mount. Weight: 330g.
