Due to the demand for 2021 bikes due to COVID and distribution interruptions, the 2021 bike models have become very limited. We are now taking preorders for 2022 bikes and frames. If you preorder before 2022, we honor 2021 pricing. 


Note: 2022 models may have changed from the 2021 models.  

The expected delivery is April 2022 for this item

For over 10 years, our best-selling model; the Mega has been racking up awards on Enduro stages and in the press around the world. With 4 Enduro World Series titles to its name, the Mega has become an icon that is synonymous with racing. However, we never rest on our laurels and 2021 sees the introduction of the 4th generation Mega.

Since 2009 the Nukeproof Mega has been on a constant development to meet the demands of our riders and customers alike.

To optimize the weight, strength and stiffness, the Mega Carbon frame features a T700/800 UD woven carbon fiber frameset (Front and rear Triangle). The new carbon swingarms helps reduce the unsprung weight on the rear of the bike. Again, the Mega is available in both 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes, with both frame designs tailored around each wheel size. All forged part are also made from 6061-T6 Aluminum

After winning 4 Enduro World Series Titles in 3 years the all new design is an evolution of our ultimate Enduro bike. At the heart of the frame is all new suspension Kinematics, designed to be more subtle off the top, whilst remaining progressive and predictable . Anti-Squat is used to create an effective pedaling bike that can be thrashed through technical terrain. The useable SAG range is also widened to allow riders to tune the suspension to the trails. Other key features include:

  • All New Carbon chassis
  • Designed and improved suspension kinematics
  • Tube In Tube design for easy cable installation
  • All new Geometry
  • Optimized sizing/fit - Small to XXL
  • SRAM UDH
  • Now fits a 750ml water bottle inside the main front triangle!

    The new Mega frame is optimized around the rider and weight distribution. The new geometry features dynamic saddle offset. Seat angles are optimized for each frame size and the seat tube itself is designed to take a longer dropper post if required.
