Nukeproof Introduces Giga to the 2021 Range

MULSE = Mega & Pulse

The Idea for a more downhill orientated Enduro bike 1st started back in 2014 when Nukeproof made a special Mega for Sam Hill to race in the World Championship in South Africa. With increased travel and more aggressive geometry it was a Mega that was turned up to 11! 

The idea reappeared when they started working on the new Mega V4 project. At this time, Nukeproof were in final stages of testing the yet to be named DH sample (which became the Dissent). Due to impressive pedal platform this offered they began to wonder if it’s suspension platform could cross-over to Enduro. Knowing that it would perform on the descents, they still needed to create a mule (Dubbed the Mulse) to test how it would perform when seated, pedalling and climbing. As soon as they rode it they knew they were on to something. Despite the extra weight (Most of the frame was a Dissent) it pedalled and climbed much better than expected, but with the descending capabilities that you would expect from a DH bike. With refinements to the frame, the main goal to reduce the weight and optimise the geometry, Nukeproof knew they could have something pretty special!

The new “Mulse” was simply to good to be ignored; The Giga was born, proof you really can have it all in this 180mm monster.
