  • Nukeproof Scout 290 Elite Alloy Bike (SLX12)

    The Scout 290 Elite offers confidence-inspiring all-terrain composure, so you can overcome challenging trail features and ride faster across rough singletrack. It features Nukeproof's custom butted hydro-formed alloy frame that rolls upon 29" (29er) wheels wrapped in high-grip Tubeless Ready Magic Mary and Nobby Nic tyres from Schwalbe. It is also equipped with Fox 36 Float Rhythm suspension forks and a Shimano SLX M7100 12-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 10-51T cassette and hydraulic disc brakes. Capable, dependable and stylish, the Scout 290 Elite is deal for forest trails, epic long-distance all-mountain rides and off-piste back-country sessions.

    The Hardtail: Often mooted as the perfect style bike to master your first pedal strokes into the world of mountain biking or the best way to develop your bike handling skills. Mastering a hardtail will sharpen your skills from perfecting your balance point on the bike through to being creative with the trail ahead reading natural features to generate speed. One thing is for sure though; you shouldn’t underestimate what this hardtail is truly capable of.

    The all-new Scout is a graduate from the school of gravity. Its geometry is on the “aggressive” side of the coin, designed to attack the trail ahead. The new pedalling position, developed using Nukeproof’s Saddle Offset theory, will propel you efficiently up the trail ready for the gnarliest descent you can handle. The new geometry adds to the all-round capability of the Scout. Improved riding position and sizing combined with a low bottom bracket enhances your control in the corners. The Scout is a versatile frame that is ready to scout out endless single track, session technical enduro trails or just hoon around like you’re auditioning for the latest “Scoutin’ About” video epic.

    The Nukeproof Scout is the embodiment of the Nukeproof attitude. When riding a Scout, you become part of something special and every ride of this hardcore hardtail rewards every last drop of your skill and commitment. You are inducted into something a little bit special too, that subtle nod of appreciation from other Scout owners that you too know what a special frame this is, through to the support and community that has grown around Scout ownership.

    The New Scout, welcome to the world of Scoutin’ About, it really is an attitude.

    The 3rd generation the Scout has been tweaked to be the finest vintage of Scout.

    Key Upgrades Include:

    • All New Frame: The frame itself has matured slightly. Subtle touches such as moulded protection through to new UDH (universal derailleur hanger) dropouts to name but a few of the upgrades
    • “Tweaked” Geometry: Nukeproof loved the way the V2 Scout rode, but a few subtle updates to areas such as the seat tube and head tube angles make this latest version even better
    • Improved Sizing: The new Scout offers size specific chainstays as well as improved spacing of sizes to match the rest of the Nukeproof range
    • Sizing: Scout comes from Small to XL in 275 and Medium to XXL in the 290 version, updated geometry to give the V3 Scout more efficiency to the trails and more attitude on the trails
    • The all new Nukeproof Scout builds on the cult like “Scoutin’ About” attitude of the hardtail. Buying a Scout means not only do you get the raddest hardtail on the market, join one of the best communities of bikers

    Easy Assembly

    When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools and plastic pedals are conveniently included in the box.

    Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

    • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for balance bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
    • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is balance bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
    • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a SMALL BOX.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a LARGE BOX.

    Please note that due to ongoing issues in the global bike supply chain, manufacturers may substitute certain component items due to availability. In this situation, they will be replaced with the same quality or better performing parts.
