To celebrate and commemorate Sam Hill being crowned the 2017 EWS Series champion, Nukeproof has created a limited-edition replica bike; the Nukeproof Mega Carbon 275 Worx! These will be extremely rare as Nukeproof has only produced 50 of these limited-edition bikes worldwide. Each bike has its own unique serial number on the top tube; numbered from #2- #51. (Sam's own bike was #1.)
This bike comes with Sam's awesome World's paint scheme and all the parts that helped take him to victory. This bike is set to become a future icon and is your change to own a piece of real MTB history!
Since 1995 the infamous Megavalanche race, which starts from the highest point on Pic Blanc (3300m) above the village of Alpe D'Huez has been synonymous with all mountain riding and the highest level of true mountain bike racing.
Conceived originally in 2009 by the development team at Nukeproof in an attempt to build the perfect bike for this exact style of racing, the Mega was born. Now in its 4th evolution, the Mega is podium proven. It has tasted success with numerous national and international race wins to its name.
Designed to excel on the toughest enduro tracks; the gravity focused specification is designed to descend fast but maintain the pedalling efficiency for all-day epics.
Updated Race Geometry
With the demands of Enduro World Series racers progressing at a rapid rate, Nukeproof looked again at its geometry and saw an opportunity to tailor the frames to suit not only the fastest racers, but the growing tribe of riders that utilise its bikes every weekend whether that be shuttling runs at their favourite bike park, or heading off for an all-day epic in the local hills.
Slightly taller head tube lengths help tailor the cockpit feel to increase rider confidence, and a lengthened top tube on large and extra-large frames should help even the tallest of riders feel at home on the new Mega Carbon 275 Worx.
Metric Shock Sizing
The product development team work extremely closely with Nukeproof's suspension partners and spent endless hours working on the perfect shock configuration for the new Mega. The perfect partnership between rear shock technology and frame kinematics has always been in the very root of its thought process when developing bikes and the new Mega with its brand new 'metric' shock standard is no different. Designed to work perfectly with both air and coil sprung rear shocks, Nukeproof has addressed some of the areas that it felt could be improved on over the previous design such as hardware improvements and higher spec shocks across the board.
The new Mega Carbon 275 Worx utilises the brand new RockShox Super Deluxe rear shock and hardware now comprises of a wider spaced 25mm x 8mm front mount, with a rocker link mounted bearing system to improve shock sensitivity and reduce the amount of wear through heavy usage. This combination adds even more stiffness to the chassis through these more secure fixtures and the ‘Metric' rear shock system with increased bushing overlap.
