RockShox Ultimate Suspension and SRAM X01 Eagle 12-Speed Drivetrain
This Mega 290 RS Carbon from Nukeproof is equipped with a combination of top-level parts to dominate anywhere on the race-circuit. It features RockShox Lyrik Ultimate RCT3 forks with 180mm of travel up front and 165mm at the rear from a Super Deluxe Ultimate RCT rear shock, this combination gives phenomenal traction and trail gobbling performance anywhere on the mountain side. Powered by only the best, this ride is equipped with a SRAM X01 Eagle 12-Speed drivetrain to blast it efficiently from the summit to the podium while SRAM Code RSC 4-Pot brakes ensure World Class braking power at your fingertips.
Modern 29er Geometry for Stability, Traction and Control
This version of the 29”-wheeled Mega features a frame using a short fork offset with 180mm of fork travel paired with 160mm of rear travel to create a true monster-truck of a bike. 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.
