Nukeproof Mega 290 Pro Bike

Since 1999 the infamous Megavalanche race, which starts from the highest point on Pic Blanc (3300m) above the village of Alpe D’Huez, has been synonymous with All-Mountain riding and the highest level of true Mountain Bike racing.

Conceived originally in 2009 by the development team at Nukeproof in an attempt to build the perfect bike for this exact style of racing, the Mega was born. Now in its 3rd evolution, the new Mega is podium proven. It has tasted success with numerous national and international race wins to its name.

Lightweight and Strong Aluminium Frame

The Mega 290 Pro is engineered to be a force on any descent whilst still being a capable climber. This All-Mountain spec's steed is equipped to handle all in front of it. Designed with the same mentality as the Team bike, the Mega 290 Pro Bike features an aggressive geometry and is manufactured from a custom hydroformed T6-6061 aluminium to deliver an excellent performance-oriented All-Mountain and Enduro race bike that's strong, durable, and lightweight.
