NUA Ti-CORE - THE HEART OF YOUR BIKE € 1495
A timeless treasure, this titanium frame will be with you for decades, even as your requirements change. You can start with a minimal single speed for urban use, then convert it into a fully-equipped commuter bike, a cyclocross, a gravel bike or a touring bike, as your needs evolve. Your Nua Ti-CORE titanium frame will always be the heart of your Nua, come what may. The solidity and comfort of the ride quality, and the stable yet agile geometry will be a joy, no matter which path you choose.
Belt or chain? Internal gear hub or derailleur? Disc or caliper brakes? Straight or tapered forks? Road or wide tires? Racks? Mudguards? Integrated lights? No problem, you decide.

DO IT ALL BIKE
Have you ever wished you had a bike which could do everything? Which would adapt to any terrain and any climate? Nua Audaç is the answer to your dreams. Equally perfect for urban commuting, weekend trekking, touring, or mountain adventures.
Equiped with the latest Shimano internally geared hub, it will take on any degree of slope, aided by its cyclocross tires. A maintenance-free belt drive, a hub dynamo feeding powerful LED lights, hydro-disc brakes, rack, and mudguards complete this versatile machine. A prime example of what can be acheived with our Nua Ti-CORE and Ti-FORK (also available seperately).

NUA FLOC DE NEU
THE MAGIC CARPET
This custom project puts a new twist on our SC-01. Described as a magic carpet, its balloon tires transform the worst road surfaces into velodrome racetracks. Originally conceived as fixed gear, it’s easily convertible to single speed by installing brakes and flipping the wheel, since this is one of the few bikes which combine a flip-flop wheel with belt transmision. Sandblasted titanium, honey-brown leather, and green painted components give an organic feel which perfectly compliments the tecnology used in this unique machine.

MICHAEL'S 2 SPEED
Some people know exactly what their ideal bike would be like, so they go for a custom build. This bike is a good example. Michael needed a bike that was both beautiful and practical, designed to go fast in any weather and over any terrain
We built the bike with top quality practical elements like the minimalist mudguards, the titanium luggage rack and a permanent lighting system composed of an SON Delux hub dynamo and Supernova LED lights with special mounts. And for the contact points, a sublime Gilles Berthoud leather saddle with titanium rails (which perfectly complement our titanium seat post), with matching bar tape.
A beautiful hybrid: the offspring of a cyclocross and a road bike; adapted for commuting; modern, but with classical touches…..In a nutshell, a bike built according to his unique vision, a far cry from any factory produced model. That’s the magic of a custom build.
NIK'S SS COMMUTER
Nik wanted a commuter bike suitable for the difficult climate of New York. A titanium frame and fork, single speed belt driven transmission, disc brakes, and mudguards seemed like the perfect combination for a bike which would be out every day in all weathers.
Our Ti-CORE frame is, among other things, extremely versatile. Although this bike has been built as a single speed, Nik will be able to adapt it to his future needs. He could even install a 14 speed Rohloff IGH if he so desires, since the sliding dropouts and internal cable routing are designed to accomodate a wide range of possible configurations.
Disc brakes definitely have the advantage in wet climates, so we’ve gone with Magura hydraulics, with 160mm rotors for progressive braking, installed on Shimano XT hubs. Ryde rims and Sapim spokes complete the hand built wheels.
For the points of contact between bike and body, Nik opted for pieces from Brooks’ Cambium range, which are water-resistant and maintenance-free: a C15 saddle and Slender grips, both in a nice rust colour.
In a nutshell, an agile, fun, and bullet-proof machine on which to ride the New York streets in style.
NUA DOPPIO 2 SPEED
THE URBAN ROCKET
Kappstein GmbH and Co., the German manufacturer of premium bike components, asked us to design a stylish, urban bicycle which they could use to showcase their new Doppio 2-speed bottom bracket gearbox. This design is the fruit of that collaboration. Zippy and responsive, it’s a joy to ride. Our Nua Ti-CORE frame has once again proved its versatility, combining with our all-new Nua CF carbon fork and other superb quality components to create a bike with a seriously sporty look, and a feel to match.
