Nukeproof releases selected 2022 frames and bikes

by 12

Nukeproof is releasing information about some of its 2022 line up – including a selection of frame only options that might keep you busy in the shed this winter.

Will you be inspired to buy a complete bike and get riding like Elliott Heap, or take the slow road and build your own, frame only with your own choice of components?

Nukeproof Mega & Giga 297 X01
With many of the 2022 bikes still brewing, these stunning Limited Edition Nukeproof Giga and Mega 297 X01 are trickling into our dealers now. The factory yellow frame specifications are based on the ultra-popular “Factory spec”, featuring the finest Fox suspension from the awesome 38 Grip 2 Damper Fork and Float X2 Factory rear shock. But some key upgrades to the Factory spec is the use of Sram X01 Eagle drivetrain and SRAM Code RSC Brakes.

The build will also be rolling on Nukeproof’s highly acclaimed Horizon V2 wheelsets, as used by Team Chain Reaction in this year’s Enduro World Series, the 297 (29” front, 27.5” rear). Both full T700/800 UD carbon fibre Giga and Mega frames will feature this specification to give riders the choice that the factory enduro athlete have; the 180mm travel Giga or 170mm travel Mega… it’s a tough choice! Both are Enduro slayers of the highest order. The Mega featuring our EWS winning 4 bar linkage design and the Giga the Nukeproof Dissent derived horseshoe driven linkage.

    Not a fan of the yellow at all. Especially when they do some great colours anyway.

    But I’d like to see the CRC running these as their team vans…

    For a moment I thought I saw externally routed cables and got very interested, then I realised that was the Cub-Scout.

    So is the alloy Mega frame dead, I don’t see the value in the carbon version, a tiny weight saving over alloy for several hundred more.

    I really like the yellow frame, just glad there is no 27.5 option as otherwise I might have been seeing my bank manager and swapping parts over (from a 2020 mega)

    Are they pushing the frames out because even they can’t get components to build & sell complete bikes?
