SRAM Code RSC 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 exceptional 29" Mavic Deemax DH 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. Nukeproof has completed this sensational bike build with a top-level Horizon finishing kit, Sam Hill Signature grips and a RockShox Reverb Stealth 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 RS Carbon with its exceptional SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain, RockShox Lyrik and Super Deluxe suspension and immense Nukeproof Horizon finishing kit will get you where you need to be with phenomenal efficiency and style.
