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 HRZ 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 progressive. 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.

The frame is simply top notch, keeping you in control even on rougher trails full of fast hard hits. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure.

Those who live for premium quality will love the transmission and parts of this EMTB. Here Nicolai cranks up the bling-bling factor to 11. 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. With its 19,4 kg, the Saturn 14 Swift HRZ is one of the lighter E-bikes. The competition is often significantly heavier.
