With the Nucleon 16 we have realized an anti-squat characteristic with a maximum of 155% in the largest and 105% in the smallest gear, at a sag of 40mm. Compared to other high-performance enduro bikes, this means a particularly narrow spread of the anti-squat effect across the entire range of gears. A higher Anti-Squat value in medium to long gears is advantageous, since riding at high speeds is usually done standing up, with a rider applying significantly stronger load changes when pedaling. In small gears, on the other hand, the rider is usually seated and the load changes are correspondingly lower, but pedaling is most frequent in this gear ratio range. A lower but still effective anti-squat effect, as achieved by the kinematics of the Nucleon 16, is therefore optimal here.
