The Tuareg is a high spec performance bike for the the fast paced cross country rider. Singletrack riding is it"s domain. This bike is built to hammer trails at speed
As with all Van Nicholas models, performance is paramount but aesthetics satisfy desire. The Tuareg geometry is set to enhance singletrack responses as well as comfort not available elsewhere. Comparitively short chainstay give great climing and traction, however the tubing profiles are designed to soak up the trail buzz that would otherwise be tiring on many equivalent hardtails.
