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
For 2013 we offer the World Cup-proven frame as a complete bike
offering unparalleled value for the weekend competitor, with a tried
and tested parts package and great upgrade potential
Featuring triple-butted hydroformed tubing and our three-stage Fallout
Link suspension system, the Scalp frame is matched with proven RockShox
suspension front and rear plus SRAM transmission, Avid Elixir 3 brakes
and quality Nukeproof finishing kit.
T6 6061 aluminium frame with Fallout Linkage suspension
Built using T6 6061 aluminium with 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.
Using a single-pivot suspension configuration with a unified rear
triangle for optimum strength and stiffness, the Scalp’s 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.
Boasting a super-slack 63-degree head angle, 47.12” wheelbase and 14”
static BB height (medium size) the Scalp is characterised by its
centrally-positioned shock and linkage system to keep the centre of
gravity low and handling sweet.
Rear hub spacing is standard 150mm while BB shell width is 83mm; the
1.5in headtube will cater for OS 1.5in steerer forks, standard 1 1/8in
or tapered steerers.
Tough and reliable parts package
For the 2013 Nukeproof Scalp we sought out a components list that
boosted the value on offer to the rider without any compromise in
performance on the hill.
Rear suspension duties are courtesy of the RockShox Kage RC coil shock
with adjustable preload and compression, while new RockShox Domain Dual
Crown R coil forks deliver 200mm of travel in a tough package that’s
built for long-term durability and all-conditions thrashing.
The Scalp features dependable SRAM transmission and Gravity Step Up
chainset, while a Prime Aero chainguide offers security and protection
over the gnarliest of terrain. Avid Elixir 3 hydraulic disc brakes with
200mm rotors front and rear deliver consistent, fade-free braking in
all wet or dry.
Nukeproof Finishing Kit
Finishing kit on the Nukeproof Scalp comes courtesy of our own tried
and tested Warhead series of components. Our Nukeproof Generator
wheelset offers race-light speed and bombproof durability for the
fastest of courses and the hardest of hits, with Maxxis High Roller II
tyres delivering confidence-inspiring grip and tenacity in all
conditions. Our Warhead headset, 760mm riser bars, Direct Mount stem
and Element lock-on grips combine for a no-nonsense cockpit delivering
confidence and control from first turn to finish line, while the
package is rounded out with our Warhead seatpost and Nukeproof Race
Scalp edition saddle.
Proven through two seasons of World Cup action with the riders of Team
CRC/Nukeproof, the Scalp is a race-bred speed machine within the reach
of all riders.
