The Mega 290 Alloy Frame is engineered for use with a short offset 170mm fork paired with 160mm of rear travel to create a ride anywhere over anything enduro bike. It has been designed with a slackened head angle and steeper seat angle for enhanced stability and control on the steepest climbs and most daring descents. It also features a fine-tuned suspension setup to make your experience behind the bars predictable and as confidence-inspiring as possible. These changes to the suspension-platform improve small bump sensitivity, provide greater mid stroke support for more predictable cornering and its increased end stroke progression gives you trail smoothing control through the roughest of terrain.
Designed and Built for Enduro Racing Designed with the Megavalanche DH Marathon as its original race purpose back in 2009, the Nukeproof Mega has come a long way. Now in its 4th generation, the Mega has achieved success in multiple MTB disciplines with national titles and international victories to its name. Built to succeed on the EWS Enduro circuit, this sensational suspension platform and frame design assisted the current Enduro Champion Sam Hill to victory for the last two years, and he is not slowing down.
Lightweight and Ultra-Reliable Construction Engineered to tame the toughest and roughest enduro tracks, this ride-anywhere Mega inspires confidence on the most daring descents whilst ensuring exceptional pedalling efficiency and comfort for epic all-day mountain riding. Engineered with hydroformed alloy, this lightweight and ultra-durable creation is constructed for immense reliability and performance. Enabling you to push harder and faster than ever before, its modern geometry pushes the boundaries of performance and is more responsive, predictable and stable in even the most demanding trail conditions.
