This bike is engineered to be faster and more stable than virtually anything else on the Enduro World Circuit and performs to exceptional levels anywhere on Earth.
FOX Float Factory Series Suspension and Shimano XT Groupset
This 29"-wheeler features 170mm of travel up front from a Fox 36 Float Factory Series, Grip 2 equipped suspension fork with 160mm of travel at the rear from a Factory Series Float X2 shock. This combination ensures advanced trail smoothing and terrain taming, so you can focus on your race times and the ride. This full suspension steed has a wide gear ratio Shimano XT 12-Speed drivetrain in its arsenal to soar you up the steepest climbs while its XT 4-Pot brakes give immense braking power and control on the descents.
29" DT Swiss E1700 Spline Wheels and Michelin Wild Enduro Tyres
This EWS-contender rolls upon 29” DT Swiss E1700 Spline wheels and Michelin Wild Enduro tyres to guarantee stability, reliability and grip across all terrain types and potential hazards. This bikes cockpit is fully fledged with a Nukeproof finishing kit, which includes their Horizon handlebars, Sam Hill Signature grips and a 45mm Nukeproof Neutron AM stem for superb steering control and predictable handling stability. Also, this build has been completed with a Horizon SL saddle and a Brand-X Ascend dropper seatpost for adjustable comfort when climbing or descending.
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.
