Nicolai is iconic. And the German gods of aluminum craftsmanship take this status very seriously, even when it comes to producing EMTBs. The Saturn 14 Swift HLS is poised with a unique concept to maintain its cult status in the scene of motorized bikes.
The SX from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The Swabians from Bosch are sending their first light engine into the race with the SX. With 55 Nm torque, this unit places exactly in the middle between Fazua's Ride 6 and TQ's HPR 5. However, it delivers up to 6 watts of support, similar performance figures to the popular Bosch CX. The starting behavior remains dynamic. The complete motor control is very $natural. In terms of installation space and sound, the small Bosch can't quite keep up with its competitors from the Light segment. The short range unfortunately limits the tour radius quite significantly.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Saturn 14 Swift HLS in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

The good Fox chassis absorbs even larger roots with the calmness of a Buddhist monk. Especially for heavy riders, the Nicolai brakes could be a problem. With four pistons in front and two pistons in the rear they only decelerate averagely. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Nicolai uses good equipment. The relatively high reach value in the geometry table is compensated by Nicolai with a relatively short stem. Thus, the long main frame remains maneuverable in the terrain. The scale stays at 19,8 kg with this model. That makes the Saturn 14 Swift HLS one of the light Trailbikes.
