The original Nukeproof Mega was inspired by the explosion in Enduro-style DH events, taking its name and its cues from the daddy of them all – the Megavalanche

For 2013 we’ve given the Mega AM a makeover, with an all-new custom hydroformed tubeset for increased front-end stiffness and improved strength-to-weight ratio, plus an additional 10mm rear travel – now 160mm – offering ultimate stability and confidence on the most gnarly of Alpine descents.

Now designed to take forks with up to 180mm travel, the Mega AM combines downhill prowess with pedalling efficiency – perfect for the unique challenges thrown up by competitive Enduro events, Alpine trips, All-Mountain adventures or tough, technical riding where uplifts aren’t an option.

Progressive suspension

Suspension-wise, the Mega uses our 'Erosion' linkage giving a smooth progressive action with a well controlled mid-stroke to avoid wallowing under pedal loads.

Oversize main pivot bearings are contained in a bespoke CNC-machined Bottom Bracket assembly to ensure alignment, durability and precision, while an asymmetric chainstay design gives clearance for a front derailleur and compatibility with all leading models of ISCG 05 - mounted chain retention systems.

Geometry is based around a slack 66deg head angle and 72deg seat angle, with a long wheelbase keeping the centre of gravity low for optimum stability at speed.

A 44mm headset standard keeps the front of the bike light, with Nukeproof headset options allowing flush internal, flush top/external bottom, tapered or 1.5in headset compatibility, while at the rear, a 142mm x 12mm thru-axle keeps things planted.

The Mega AM also features removable cable guides for a ‘gravity dropper’ adjustable seat post, as well as internal cable routing for a RockShox Reverb Stealth post.

Nukeproof Mega AM Frame Features:

  • All Mountain/Enduro race frame
  • Custom hydroformed T6 6061 Aluminium tubeset
  • 160mm travel
  • Fork range: 160mm to 180mm

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect all rounder bike capable of anything I've been riding he old shaped mega for over 2 years and loved it to bits. The only thing I wanted to change was a longer top tube and wheelbase and that's exactly what the new mega is. The CCDB is perfect for the bike and so much more active than the air shock. The bike is easy to flick about, stable at speed and feels solid. The frame really isn't heavy despite some reviews, yes is not the lightest around but it's geared more for going down than up. I'm 5ft 10 and chose the large 18.5" version as it's the perfect top tube length. For the price of the frame including the cane creek I couldn't ask for more. 16 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great frame! best bike i could of bought for the money! got it on sale for €1160 in BRIGHT yellow. paint jobs very nice and tough... tested it out on some rocks after about 30 seconds into my first ride on the bike. not a mark so happy days :) 25 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome frame for an awesome price Ordered this for my next bike build project. As usual CRC delivers quick. Frame was well padded and was free of any cosmetic defects. Manual, cable guides, CCDB manual and tool were all included in the package. Overall, excellent stuff, frame looks wicked in black and yellow. Cant wait to build this baby up! 15 December 2013
