NERVEBIKES: 600SL Custom Carbon Bike
This is the flagship Nerve 600SL carbon fibre bike which turned so many heads at Bespoked. In order to get ready for the show in time, this one was made to specification by an Italian manufacturer and has a claimed frame weight of 679g. Pretty light by any standards. Future carbon frames (once plans come to fruition), will be manufactured in the UK and when that does happen it will ensure Nerve joins a tiny number of companies building from carbon in this country.
With the Campagnolo Super Record 11-speed groupset, Reynolds Assault carbon clincher wheels with Continental Grand Prix 4000S 25mm tyres and 3T carbon bars, seatpost and aluminium stem, it is one of the lightest bikes available, nudging the ‘Scales of Truth’ to 6kg (specifically: 13.22lb).
Such lightness doesn’t come cheap, not that you’d expect it to. The frameset is £2,998.95, with the complete bike at £6,798.95. It’s custom built, so you can have it sized to fit you perfectly with fully custom geometry (available on request). While this frame has a race-focused geometry, we also offer a sportive version and there’s a disc brake model in the works. Details upon request.
