Nukeproof Scalp DH Frame - RockShox Kage

Nukeeproof's highly regarded Scalp DH frame now presents unbelievable value and brings high performance to the masses in an affordable package!

Taking its name from the legendary downhill track at Moneyscalp Wood in Co Down, the Nukeproof Scalp is our original DH race rig offering 209mm of progressive rear travel via a pull-link driven single-pivot suspension system.

Ridden through two tough seasons on the DH World Cup circuit by the riders of Team CRC/Nukeproof, the Scalp is a race-proven speed machine within the reach of all riders.

Built using T6 6061 aluminium with custom triple-butted hydroformed tubing for a perfectly balanced strength to weight combination, the Scalp is a slack and low-slung gravity sled built for the steepest, most technical and most challenging race runs the sport can throw up.

Boasting a super-slack 63-degree head angle, 47.12” wheelbase and +17mm BB height (medium size) the Scalp is characterised by its centrally-positioned shock and linkage system to keep the centre of gravity low and handlng sweet.

Rear hub spacing is standard 150mm while BB shell width is 83mm. The 1.5in headtube can be used in conjunction with the latest generation of Nukeproof headsets to cater for OS 1.5” steerer forks, standard 1 1/8” or tapered steerers.

Progressive platform

Suspension-wise, the Scalp uses a single-pivot configuration with a unified rear triangle for optimum strength and stiffness. Its pull-link driven Fallout Linkage drives the shock in a three-stage progressive action - progressive throughout, with increasing progression at the beginning and end of the stroke, but a linearly progressive midstroke to avoid any spikes in damping.

Huge 40mm diameter main pivot bearings are used with bearings mounted in machined faces in the swingarm, to provide maximum spacing and stiffness. Twin dogbones pull, rather than push, the swinglink giving a perfect progression rate, and allowing ride height tuning by swapping for different length links.

  • T6 6061 aluminium frame construction
  • Custom triple-butted hydroformed tubing

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Качество на лицо Отличная рама, хорошая сборка. Все ровненько, сварных швов почти не видно, рулевой стакан и посадочные места под каретку проточены и не окрашены что способствует быстрой сборке. Покраска супер. Пришла в заводской коробке, документы с заводским номером имеются. В комплекте идут скобы для крепления рубашек тросов к раме. 04 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Low, Slack, Plush, Balanced Love this frame/bike..My full build: Fork:2013 marzocchi 888CR (with Ti spring fork weight 3,300 grams), Shock: X-Fusion vector Air (works great with this frame), Wheel set: Spank Subrosa Evos with Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs, Tires: Schwalbe Muddy Mary DH 2.5 Dual ply rear and Schwalbe Big Betty 2.5 single ply up front with Tubes, Crank set: Shimano Zee 165mm, Deity pedals, Zee rear derailleur, Zee front brake and Deore rear, Candy components direct mount Stem, and Chromag 785mm bars (un-cut)....Bike Weight: 40lbs....So..this bike is Low, slack, and PLUSH!!! best feeling suspension I've ridden/owned so far..Felt great immediately, it just seems to instantly sink into the "sweet spot", tracks/corners really well, and is very balanced front to rear..weight bias is dead center!!!..feels great/predictable when jumping..bikes I've owned/ridden for comparison: Santa Cruz Driver 8 with dual crown, Scott Voltage FR DH set up dual crown etc., Scott Gambler (2009), Norco Shore (2008)....I give this bike only 4 stars because of weight..would be difficult and expensive to get this bike in the 37lbs realm..I will be going tubless as my last step in weight reduction and it will still be around 38lbs..which is fine, even sitting at 40lbs I'm more than happy..but if you're looking for a feather weight, Carbon 33-34lbs Dh rig, then this isn't the bike for you. With that said, this frame/bike is not slow/sluggish in tight corners, or slow to react in any way but it isn't going to jump/explode out of corners like a 33-34lbs Carbon bike would...So what you get with this bike in spades is: A low center of gravity, balanced, STABLE, PLUSH, BEAUTIFUL DH Rig(IMO..black/yellow/hints of gray color scheme/paint job awesome)... 08 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome!!! This frame is on the heavy side by todays standards. I have my full build weighing in at just under 40lbs, with a light set up, X-Fusion air shock, Zee 165mm cranks, a 2,050 gram wheelset, etc...weight notwithstanding, the Scalp does NOT feel sluggish or cumbersome at slower speeds and once up to faster speeds it feels..well..JUST RIGHT!!!...suspension action is very plush and forgiving, it seems to immediately sink into the sweet spot and feels familiar/predictable at all times..weight bias/center of gravity and angles are perfectly dead center/balaced...it feels very planted in corners and again feels balanced in the air...the frame/bike cleans very easily, and in this black/yellow color scheme looks AWESOME!!!..SO..if your looking for a featherweight, carbon 33lbs-35lbs DH rig, this is not the bike for ya..but if a few extra pounds is not the end of the world, and you are after a plush, sturdy, extremely well balanced and "feels just right" bike, then you will be very pleased with this frame. 05 June 2013
