The Components

The Priority Continuum Onyx has some excellent components to tackle the urban jungle. The NuVinci N380 CVT drivetrain is one of the most sophisticated pieces of equipments you’ll find on a bike. This drivetrain provides a gear range equivalent to a standard 7-speed chain-driven bike without distinct gears. You can shift using a grip shift, with a smooth progression from easy to difficult. The system also features a carbon belt instead of a chain, and all the shifting components are housed in the rear hub. Plus, it’s silent and requires minimal maintenance – perfect for an urban commuter bike. 

400-lumen front light

The Priority Continuum Onyx also features Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors front and rear for superior stopping power. Standard configuration includes WTB 32mm wide slick tires with reflective sidewalls for safety and the option to choose studded snow tires for winter riding. There’s also a red rear light and a 400-lumen front light integrated into the bike to keep you visible at night and reduce theft risk, plus a dynamo front hub that eliminates the need for charging.

The Ride

The Priority Continuum Onyx offers a smooth and quiet ride due to its NuVinci belt drive system and CVT gearing. You could change the gear while the bike is stopped, so you don’t have to worry about being caught in the middle of a hill if you don’t anticipate the terrain change. This makes the Priority Continuum Onyx an excellent choice for riders who don’t want to bother shifting gears and simply want to enjoy the ride. The constant lights are also a safety feature that enhances the enjoyment of riding the Priority Continuum Onyx.

The Priority Continuum Onyx is an exceptional bike. You get a well-thought-out frame, reliable components, and excellent performance at a reasonable price. Built-in lights, fenders, and a reliable drivetrain are perfect for commuter or city bikes. Priority stands by its product, ensuring help and support if needed.
