Nukeproof Mega 290 RS 2021
|Options||XL (Sold Out) Bottle Blue|
|Style||Originally developed and later named after the race it was designed for on the infamous trails of Alp D'Huez.
To date the Mega platform is one of the most highly decorated race bikes on the market: with the 2017, 2018
(x2) and 2019 Enduro World Series Titles; a Downhill World Championship top 10 and a Silver Medal at the 4x
World Championship to its name. (As well as a host of other national and international victories and titles!)
Since 2009 the Nukeproof Mega has been constant path of development to meet the evolving demands of our riders and customers alike.
Our team are relentlessly striving for improvements and with each generation the Mega has been chiselled and shaped into today's thoroughbred Enduro race bike.
With the launch of the 2020 Carbon Mega 290c, you could forgive our designers for resting on their laurels.
However, as Nukeproof products are developed between the tapes, there is a constant desire to hone and refine in order to give our athletes and riders the best possible chance of standing on top of the podium.
Introducing the all-new MegaV4: born through evolution, not revolution!
New Sizing structure for optimised fit
Whilst humans may not have changed size much in recent years; the bike sizes they choose to ride most certainly have.
To ensure a perfectly dialled fit for our riders and
customers alike, we now offer 5 frame sizes:
Small through to XXL
with evenly spaced jumps between each.
Key Design Highlights
Revised Geometry ??" Lower, longer steeper and slacker!
Geometry is designed around the saddle offset for each size to optimise seated weight distribution
This results in Steeper seat angles across the board but especially on larger sizes for taller riders
This also results in longer reach figures
Shorter seat tubes designed to maximise seat post insert depth
Improved suspension Kinematic uses a Swinglink driven 4 bar horst link layout that is designed to be:
More supple off the top, whilst remaining progressive and supportive throughout the rest of the travel
Anti-squat optimised to create an efficient pedalling bike that can still be thrashed through technical terrain
Wide usable SAG range (30-35% to allow riders to tailor ride characteristics)
Mega 275 & 290 Frames are available in Aluminium or UD carbon Fibre:
New Carbon Mega has improved front triangle lateral stiffness for
better stability/track holding:
Head tube 45% stiffness increase
BB 14% stiffness increase
Less unsprung weight in the RT for better suspension performance
Room for water bottle & accessory mount inside the frame
