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 TNS is poised with a unique concept to maintain its cult status in the scene of motorized bikes.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the SX shows. 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. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Saturn 14 Swift TNS , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Saturn 14 Swift TNS in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (11000) .

The top notch Fox chassis absorbs big hits like Chuck Norris and provides a lot of traction and control. The mid-range brakes from Magura do their job but could be a bit firmer. The power of the four pistons setup is only average. A nice touch: The gear and components are on a very good level. 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. On the scale, the Saturn 14 Swift TNS makes a good figure with 19,7 kg. Most Trailbikes are significantly heavier.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Nicolai Saturn 14 Swift TNS

If you're looking for a comfortable ride for everyday use, the Saturn 14 Swift TNS isn't for you, because this bike only knows one gear when going downhill - full throttle! With a very good chassis and a very good handling, it puts most of the competition in its place. No Yin without Yang. With a average brake system, the Saturn 14 Swift TNS has its weaknesses too.
