Nukeproof Reactor Worx

2020 marks 30 years of Nukeproof as a company. As a homage to past and present they are releasing their ultimate trail bike, the Ltd Edition Reactor 290c WORX. As in previous years the WORX bike is an opportunity to test boundaries and try something a little different. In keeping with this and based on the flagship Reactor 290c frame, Nukeproof have equipped this year’s WORX model with a dream list of top-of-the-line components, with one aim; to create the ultimate trail bike for 2020. Launched in late 2019 the Reactor frame is designed as a little hooligan of a bike, at home on steep technical climbs or those all-day epic adventures, but happiest when thrashing the most technical trails you can point it at. So far, the frames kinematics and geometry has won rave reviews from both riders and media, and combined with this dream list of components it the definitive trail bike from Nukeproof. 


Combined with the stunning spec, the Reactor 290c WORX frame is treated to a raw carbon with clear coat finish, allowing you to see the UD woven carbon build, and completed with chrome decals.. 


Key to the WORX spec this year is Sram’s AXS line up. Launched earlier this year the Eagle AXS and Reverb AXS systems offer riders the next level of personalization and control through wireless technology. By removing the clutter and complexity, they streamlined the cockpit and created the ultimate performance drivetrain and dropper set up. AXS is designed to be simple to set up and maintain thanks to the latest pure shifting technology. This means performance is always outstanding and consistent even under load and the roughest terrain.
