Engineered to dominate the EWS Enduro World Series race circuit, this same frame design and bike build ethos assisted Sam Hill in achieving the silverware two years running and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
This gravity-focussed ride features modern geometry, slack lines and a strong and lightweight carbon fibre construction. Even though it inspires outstanding confidence when blasting down the most daring trails, it still climbs with amazing efficiency and comfort for all-day epics. Its construction features a unique carbon fibre blend that’s ultra-strong and flex-free while its race-intended geometry ensures the utmost responsiveness and stability at all speeds.
Nukeproof has kitted this full suspension trail slayer with exceptional components to get you from start to finish faster and with more composure than the competition. It's fitted with Fox 36 Float Performance Series for 170mm of travel up front with a Fox Float DPX2 for 160mm of travel at the rear. This combination ensures the greatest traction over a multitude of terrains in all weather conditions.
A Shimano SLX drivetrain with its 12-Speed wide ratio 10-51T cassette gets you to the summit with haste and blasts you back down the fastest descents with complete confidence in its power delivery. Shimano SLX 4-Pot brakes control momentum with reliable and precise braking power, so you can drop anchor to scrub some speed when needed.
Ready for racing, long days in the saddle and uplift sessions at the bike park, this ride rolls on fast rolling 29” DT Swiss E1900 SPLINE wheels wrapped in World Class Michelin Wild Enduro tyres. This combination gives you exceptional stability, traction and grip as it speeds you from trail to trail with the utmost vigour. This amazing bike build has been completed with Nukeproof Neutron and Horizon finishing kit, Sam Hill Signature grips and a Brand-X Ascend dropper seatpost.
Nukeproof enhanced the suspension kinematic-performance to make the bike as fast and as controlled as possible. These changes improve its small bump sensitivity, provide greater mid-stroke support for more predictable cornering and its increased end stroke progression gives confidence-inspiring control through even the roughest of terrain.
This Nukeproof Mega 290 Elite Carbon with its exceptional Shimano SLX 1x12-Speed drivetrain, Fox 36 Float forks and Float DPX rear shock and a superb Nukeproof finishing kit will get you where you need to be with phenomenal efficiency and style.
