The Mega 290 is the result of ten years of solid development from Nukeproof, a brand totally focused on harder hitting side of mountainbiking. They’ve not deviated from their initial gameplan or intentions – this is one of our favourite 29ers.
In 2007, Nukeproof released its first products – titanium springs, quickly wider 800mm handlebars, which were a rare sight at the time. A sure sign of what was to follow. What came next was the Mega – a frame with its development process beginning way back in 2009. Built with enduro racing in mind and in particular the event that this model name hints at – the Megavalanche in the French Alps.
