  • Nukeproof Rook Frame Suspension Frame

    The new Nukeproof Rook. Ready to shred?

    Developed in close collaboration with Canadian slope-shredder and Nukeproof team rider Jack Fogelquist, the Rook rips up the rule book like Jack rips up the park, bringing trick features straight off the pro circuit and onto a factory frame.

    First up – we’ve developed the Rook with a revolutionary new headtube designed to work seamlessly with a hydraulic gyro (detangler) and open up a whole wide world of bar spins, tail whips and all the sick stunts in your trick bag.

    The design integrates the gyro’s bottom cup into the headtube, giving a stack height of just 10mm and keeping bar height low for perfect cockpit tuning and body positioning – a sure-fire game-changer for riders intent on attacking the slope.

    The Rook also offers the ability of running a shifter on the downtube via the optional downtube shifter mount to let you run gears without worrying about tangled cables. Call it a trick shifter, call it a suicide shifter – you’ve been asking for it so here it is.

    Slope or trail – the choice is yours

    Slope-honed innovations aside, the Rook is designed as a versatile and highly tuneable rig as comfortable on the trails as it is in the park.

    A custom-hydroformed T6 6061 aluminium tubeset makes for a lightweight agile ride which combines supreme manoeuvrability with big hit durability to take the spills of the slope and the thrills of the trail. Up front is the 44mm – 56mm tapered headtube with integrated gyro compatibility which takes a standard 1 1/8” and tapered steerers. A dummy gyro blank is included with the frame as this is an integral part of the frame design; fully operational Gyro is sold separately. The rear features 135mm-spaced dropouts which are designed to take a 12mm thru-axle for maximum precision and big-hit capability.

    Suspension-wise, 105mm rear travel is delivered via Nukeproof’s proven Erosion link design. A low, mildly progressive leverage rate gives a stiff platform for dirt jumping or slopestyle when used with 150+ PSI. However, switch the shock to its minimum compression position and run below 150 PSI and you instantly have a supple, active suspension feel for freeride or trail riding.

    The geometry of the Rook is optimised for a 110mm travel fork giving a 13” BB height and 69-degree head angle. Running the frame with a 160mm fork raises the BB to 13.75” and slackens the head angle to a trail-taming 66 degrees.

    Meanwhile chainstays are kept short (420mm) for pumping tight bowls and easy manualling while ISCG mounts come as standard.
