The Nukeproof 2017 range is here and launched at the Bike Show this weekend. With a very convincing line-up for such a young brand, their frame design, attention to detail and specification is up there with the best. WE CHECK OUT WHAT’S IN THE NEW LINE UP.
One of our favourite bikes of 2016 and a pick in our Dirt 100 line-up, the Mega gets a face lift for 2017. With new finishes and extended spec levels to improve the range, the Mega is available with both 27.5″ (160mm rear travel) and 29″ (150mm) wheel sizes. Plenty of choice…
The Team model is based on Sam Hill’s EWS winning Mega 275, designed to be ‘ready to win’ out of the box, it features 170mm RockShox Lyrik up front, new Mavic Deemax Pro wheels and Mavic tyres. The Team also includes the revolutionary SRAM 1×12 Eagle drivetrain. Nukeproof finishing kit is also upgraded to includes their well shaped wide Carbon bars and Vector AM saddle. This bike is indeed ready to race.
Mega 275 Team £4699.99
The Pro Models are in a full stealth black finish this year in both 275 (27.5″wheel) and 290 options (29″). Again a RockShox Lyrik is upfront, but due to consumer demand this bike is now offered with Shimano’s XT 1×11 drive train and XT brakes (a pick in the 2016 Dirt 100). Schwalbe’s Magic Mary, another favourite of ours, helps up front with an upgraded Trail Star Nobby Nic out back.
Mega 275 Pro £3399.99
Mega 290 Pro £3399.99
The Mega Comp is a true trail weapon. With the Rockshox Pike and Monarch Solo air taking care of damping, the Comp is designed to allow you to push on harder than you thought possible. A mix of SRAM GX and X1 on the drivetrain is bang on at this price point – a very competitive package.
Mega 275 Comp £2799.99
Mega 290 Comp £2799.99
The Race models get a huge upgrade using SRAM’s new NX 1×11 drivetrain and the Rockshox Yari forks. Reliable Shimano Deore M615 brakes give reassuring control of speed. With colours and graphics inspired by Nukeproof’s trips to Italy the 290 and 275 Race models are born of the same DNA as the Team and Pro builds.
Mega 275 Race £2299.99
Mega 290 Race £2299.99
