Take to the Alps with the Nukeproof Mega AM Pro; built around our race proven Mega AM frame which has evolved from a prototype that placed highly in the 2009 Megavalanche event. The Mega Comp features a high end component spec that will offer high levels of performance in your local Enduro events yet be ready for the starting beeps when the Megavalanche rolls around!
Our custom drawn hydroformed double-welded 6061 aluminium frame offers 150mm rear travel and designed to match with 150-170mm forks up front. The Mega is a versatile frame that combines plush descending prowess with pedalling efficiency. Utilizing our 'Erosion' linkage giving a smooth progressive action with a well controlled mid-stroke to avoid wallowing under pedal loads; suspension travel is controlled by the RockShox Monarch RT3 air shock. The main bearing pivots are contained within a bespoke CNC-machined Bottom Bracket Assembly to ensure alignment, durability and precision. An asymmetric chainstay design gives clearance for a double front derailleur (with a 22t-36t chainring set up) and compatibility with all leading models of ISCG-05 mounted chain retention systems.Geometry is based around a 66deg head angle and 75deg seat angle, with a BB height of 13.69” for climbing and descending prowess. A 44mm headtube standard keeps the front of the bike light, with Nukeproof headset options allowing all fork steerer option compatibility.
A RockShox Lyrik RC2 DH fork presents a new level of performance for AM assaults with a balanced 160mm of infinitely adjustable air sprung travel. The Maxle Lite 20mm thru axle will provide positive tracking on the roughest rock strewn descents and increases front end stiffness and braking performance.

The Snap Pro features a full SRAM groupset. Shifting is taken care of with SRAM X7/X9 shifters and derailleur’s to deliver flawless performance and crisp gear shifts. The SRAM X0 2x10 chainset is at the heart of the transmission and when paired with the 11-36t cassette provides the perfect blend of lightweight performance with a gear ratio that will make short work of the steepest ascents!
The RockShox Reverb seatpost is a revelation in terms of increasing your enjoyment. With a simple flick of the bar mounted remote lever you can drop the saddle height for increased standover clearance for descending and at the flick of a switch raise it again for climbing increasing the bikes race ready credentials.
