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

The Scout takes you back to minimal fuss, raw mountain biking. It will sharpen your skills, forcing you to read the trail ahead, seeking out the best lines to stay smooth and carry speed. Whether it’s embracing your spirit of adventure or attacking the trail, the Scout 290 is designed as a do-it-all hardtail.

Versatility is the name of the game and Its low bottom bracket, slack head angle and stiff frame allow you to tackle anything that you come across; explore endless singletrack, session the pump track or rail berms and hit jumps in the bike park. In the right hands, the Scout 290 is robust and versatile enough to provide comfort for longer XC rides, yet supple and confidence inspiring enough to tackle steep, rough and technical Enduro trails with ease.

Whichever wheel size you choose, Nukeproof guarantee you will enjoy every second of your ride, so get out and explore nature's playground

Updated with longer geometry to accommodate even the tallest of riders, Nukeproof's engineers took the opportunity to soften the ride with a profile seat stay assembly offering more compliance without compromising the torsional stiffness of the frame under pedaling.

Paired with the new ‘Boost 148’ rear axle spacing, helping build a stronger, stiffer wheel, the acceleration of the new Scout 290 Sport has been notably improved as well as allowing additional tire clearance for up to 2.5” tires on 29” wheels. (Note: Can be fitted with up to 2.8” tires on 27.5+” wheels).

 


FEATURES:

  • Hardtail
  • Hydroformed Triple-Butted Aluminum
