2012 Dirt 100: Nukeproof Scalp
Some companies come up with a suspension design and then get a shock to work with it, but when Nukeproof set about making the Scalp they knew from day one that they wanted it to work well with a Cane Creek Double Barrel.
It turns out that it was a good move because as a partnership the two work together superbly. The design allows you to extract every ounce of tuning from the shock, and at the same time the overall layout provides excellent power transfer. This bike is quick whether you’re pummelling some rock garden or sprinting on the flat. The squat nature of the frame is also great for manoeuvrability. We can’t talk about the Scalp without mentioning great value either because it is just that. The frame itself is highly competitively priced, but the new full build option is even more so with top end components such as a RockShox BoXXer World Cup and SRAM X0. Even the own–brand components are top quality, it’s definitely ready to race.
Price: Frame £1799.99 inc CCDB, Complete £3499.99
