Some cool news from across the pond today, NS Bikes is branching into the downhill world and they've sent us a shot of their prototype frame. From how refined it looks and the fact that they've been working on it for quite a while, we'd venture a guess that the bike is nearing production. Details include a trick integrated seat bolt, internal routing at the headtube, large linkage bearings, ISCG tabs, and a killer paint job. Keep an eye out for Polish ripper Hubery Posmyk on the bike at select races throughout the 2013 season.

NS Bikes Signs Hubert Posmyk As Their First DH Rider Ever

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.

Hubert will ride the prototype version of the frame for now and develop it through the time with the NS Bikes R&D department.

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."

Szymon Kobylinski, the owner of NS Bikes, commented: "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."
