New for 2013 is the Nukeproof Solum steel DJ frame, designed exclusively in collaboration with Canadian slopestyle superstar Jack Foqelquist.
Built from custom triple-butted cro-mo tubing, the Nukeproof Solum harnesses the characteristics of top-end steel for a sweet and supple ride through the rollers. Dialled geometry makes handling a breeze - in the air and on the ground - while bombproof construction means the Solum will take the hits and come bouncing back for more.
Optimized for use with a 100mm travel fork – Jack’s personal preference – the Solum features a 69.5 degree head angle for steering precision while short, 385mm chainstays make for snappy handling and easy manuals.
Up front, a custom 44mm headtube accepts either tapered or 1 1/8” fork standards and also features full compatibility with CaneCreek’s new 44mm Detangler Headset which enables the bike to run a hydraulic gyro for tangle free barspins and tailwhips! Additional neat features include integrated chain tension adjusters; integrated seat clamp and removable cable guides for riders who prefer not to run rear brakes.
