LA BESTIA

FROM € 5295

Fast and stealth like a dangerous savage beast, the Nua La Bestia is a performant machine designed for the most adventurous cyclists. Perfect hybrid between a drop-bar gravel, a dirt tourer and a plus wheeled mountain bike, this “monster gravel” will bring you further than any other bike. The concept: transcending the average gravel bike in order to make it limitless off-road thanks to bigger tires and the possibility to mount a front suspension on a bike designed around a gravel geometry. The pedalling position is kept highly efficient thanks to a Salsa Cowchipper dirt drop bar. Wide 27,5x3.0” Schwalbe G-One Allround tires provide extra off-road confort, grip and low rolling resistance. The heart of the bike is a sturdy Pinion gearbox controlled by a set of extremely fluid CinqFive Shift:R Road shifters allowing the use of powerful hydraulic TRP Hylex road brakes. Like always at Nua, a Gates CDX belt drive is mounted to ensure minimal maintenance is required and allow you to plan the largest trips without worrying. Thanks to the complete electric equipment kit – composed of a Shutter Precision dynamo hub, a Cinq5 USB charger and a set of Supernova dynamo powered front and rear lights – you will be autonomous in energy. Whatever the destination, you will be surprised how fast you will travel unsupported with your Nua la Bestia!

FRAME

Made from Gr.9 3AL-2,5V Titanium in a hand-brushed finish, the Nua La Bestia is a frame designed to create a fast, light, rugged "monster gravel" with a capable geometry. It's made to take 27,5" plus tires up to 3.0" wide, providing plenty of grip and comfort to enable you to ride more confidently. It is designed to fit a transmission based on a Pinion gearbox and Gates belt drive combo: it sports a Pinion bridge, sliding dropouts (making belt tensioning easy) and a belt port in the right seat stay. The oversized headtube is compatible with a tapered fork for added rigidity. It also features internal routing for brake cables and pinion cables, plus inserts for two bottle cages and a rear rack.

FORK

Accepting tires up to 27,5" or 29" x 3.0", the Cinq adventure fork is ready for any expedition. This top-end carbon fork has internal routings for brake hoses and electric wires. It also sports removable aluminum inserts for racks and/or anything cages and mudguards. This construction allows for maximum durability. It features a boost standard 15x110mm thru-axle for easy wheel assembly and maximum rigidity.

GEARING

High-end sports car transmission technology, made in Germany. Being centrally mounted, this gearbox has the advantage of better weight distribution than an IGH, meaning improved manoeuvrability. With a super-light magnesium casing and a 568% range, it’s up for any adventure you want to tackle.

GEARING & BRAKES KIT

This kit is designed for those wanting a drop-bar Nua with a Pinion gearbox. The Cinq Shift:R Road actuates beautifully smoothly for lightning-fast gear changes. This gearing kit is compatible with any Pinion model. For ultimate braking power we chose to couple TRP Hylex hydraulic disc brake calipers to the Cinq levers/shifters. This is the best option for Pinion-equipped drop-bar bikes to date.

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.

WHEELSET

TIRES

Designed to combine high grip and low rolling resistance on mixed surfaces, this all-purpose tyre is equally at home on mountain trails and asphalt roads. Super-wide, it can roll at very low pressure, offering great natural suspension exactly where it matters most: near the ground. This is the tire of choice for those wanting to enjoy their Nua Dual both on and off-road.
