All set for soaring downhill with speed and stability, this 290 model by Nukeproof has racing in its DNA. A simplified design which reduces weight and enhances the front triangle stiffness and a more progressive leverage rate for increased mid-stroke-support, lets the bike pump more efficiently, sit higher in the travel and improve stability in corners to give you the most exciting downhill experience possible.
In a move away from the Fallout Linkage of its predecessors, the Dissent's rocker link is now positioned on the outside of the seat tube, rather than tucked inside a clamshell as before. This minimises the frame weight while maximising the front triangle stiffness at the same time.
The suspension platform now uses a push, rather than a pull link, helping to reduce the loads and stresses on the frame, saving further weight and improving durability. The result of this is a frame which weighs over 400g lighter than the Pulse. The Main pivot flip chips are fast and simple to change and offer a tailored factory set up for every rider. Further custom tuning can be done via the new three-position adjustable chainstay which features interchangeable dropout inserts. The chainstay flip chips allow you to alter the wheelbase by 5-10mm depending on the type of track you’re riding, your height or riding style.
This version of the Dissent combines superb frame adaptability with a custom hydroformed 6061 aluminium tubeset, a 63-degree head angle for fearless riding and a huge 200mm of travel via the new Dissent platform make this bike ideal for the gravity-defying rider. The centrally-positioned shock and linkage system provides unrivalled handling while other features include a true 1.5” head tube, ISCG 05 mounts and a 157mm x 12mm rear axle to keep your rear end in check.
Kitted out with a RockShox Boxxer Select R fork and a RockShox Super Deluxe Coil Select R shock, no route is off-limits for this fantastic full suspension MTB. Balanced upon on a pair of Sun-Ringle Duroc SD37 Comp 29" wheels and Maxxis Assegai tyres, the bike propels you through every run with a swift-shifting SRAM GX DH 7-Speed drivetrain.
SRAM Guide RE brakes add consummate control as you weave your way downhill, making this nippy Nukeproof a superior option for the serious DH rider.
