Nukeproof Mega 290 Elite Carbon Bike (SLX) 2020

The Nukeproof Mega 290 Elite Carbon features 29” wheels, a carbon/alloy construction, an outstanding component build and modern geometry. This bike is engineered to roll fast and with greater stability and traction to dominate the Enduro World Series anywhere on Earth.

Modern 29er Geometry for Stability, Traction and Control
This version of the 29” Mega features a frame using a short fork offset with 170mm of fork travel paired with 160mm of rear travel, so it floats over anything. To accommodate these changes, Nukeproof slackened the head angle and steepened the seat angle significantly compared to previous versions.
They also enhanced the suspension kinematic-performance to make the bike as fast and as controlled as possible. These changes improve its small bump sensitivity, provide greater mid stroke support for more predictable cornering and its increased end stroke progression gives confidence-inspiring control through even the roughest of terrain.

Durable and Lightweight Carbon Fibre Construction
Built and equipped to control the toughest and roughest enduro tracks, this gravity-focussed Mega inspires confidence on the most daring descents whilst ensuring exceptional pedalling efficiency and comfort for epic all-day mountain riding. This top-level race-rig features an award-winning carbon fibre construction at its core.
Engineered with a unique blend of the highest quality carbon fibre composites, this lightweight and ultra-durable creation is constructed to win races and lift titles. Enabling you to push harder and faster than ever before, its modern geometry pushes the boundaries of performance and is more responsive, predictable and stable in even the most demanding or conditions.
