Predominately known for their dirt jump and freeride bikes, ridden by the likes of Sam Pilgrim, NS Bikes from Poland are now developing a downhill frame. Yep. They’ve signed up young Polish rider Hubert Posmyk to help the R&D team develop the bike. Raw photos of the bike appeared on Facebook a while ago but here’s a close up look at the frame.
What do you reckon?
NS BIKES SIGNS HUBERT POSMYK AS THEIR FIRST DH RIDER EVER
Gravity Group is pleased to announce a recent signing of Hubert Posmyk with NS Bikes.
Hubert Posmyk, 21 years old from Poland, is an exceptional character and amazing style rider who managed to finish 4th during 2012 National Championships as well as achieved some top results on the national level in 2012 despite very little support. It was only a matter of time until his real potential would be noticed.
NS Bikes, a world renowned manufacturer with a strong background in dirt jumping and free-riding decided to enter the DH scene a year ago and has been working on the new downhill bike since then. The next step for the management was gaining a reliable rider able to provide useful feedback for bike development on one side and to secure high level exposure on the other side. Hubert was the perfect candidate for the job and obvious choice for the company.
Here is what Hubert Posmyk says about this new partnership:
Working with NS Bikes in 2013 makes me very happy and motivated to achieve the best possible results. I am also excited to be a part of the R&D team. I am sure we will all give our best to develop NS Bikes downhill frame which enables us to compete for the highest results and I hope to prove it this season.
Hubert will ride the prototype version of the frame for now and develop it through the time with the NS Bikes R&D department.
Szymon Kobylinski, the owner of NS Bikes, said:
Many people may not know that when we started our company over 10 years ago I was totally into DH racing, so having a real DH bike come to life today is a very special moment for me. The whole design team has been very passionate about this project and now, with Hubert on board, I’m convinced that we will deliver a world class product next year. As with all our products, we are aiming to provide the best race-day performance combined with everyday usability and reliability.
