Nukeproof Mega 290 Pro Bike 2016
With a proud history in creating performance mountain bike products, Nukeproof is extremely proud to introduce its most compelling All Mountain/Enduro bike created to date: the new 2016 MEGA. The new Mega commands respect, and dishes out the rewards in spadefuls!
Since 1999 the infamous Megavalanche race, which starts from the highest point on Pic Blanc (3300m) above the village of Alpe D'Huez, has been synonymous with all mountain riding and the highest level of true mountain bike racing. Conceived originally in 2009 by the development team at Nukeproof in an attempt to build the perfect bike for this exact style of racing, the Mega was born. Refined and improved since then, it has evolved into the perfect All Mountain and Enduro race bike.
The Mega 290 Pro is for those who have an appetite for out and out speed on all terrain. Designed around a 29" wheel size, it features a 29" T6 6061 aluminium frame with RockShox Monarch Plus RC3 High Volume shock. With Rapid Recovery and Solo Air technologies, it provides traction-gaining suppleness and allows you to take your riding to levels you never thought possible. At the front end, RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air forks deliver 150mm of smooth travel with a charger damper.
A dependable SRAM transmission features an X1 chainset, shifter and derailleur. SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes front and rear deliver consistent reliability and control.
Finishing kit consists of the tried and tested Nukeproof range of components, with a SRAM Roam 40 wheelset. For confidence inspiring grip, Schwalbe Magic Mary (front) and Nobby Nic (rear) tyres complete the Mega 290 Comp.
“The Mega, be it in 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes delivers quality componentry within a solid chassis at great prices.”
