  • 2017 Nukeproof Mega's? Release date and price increases?

    Hi.

    Been looking at 2016 Mega’s and have now noticed that a lot of places have reduced their prices by around 10%. I presume this is due to the 2017 models being around the corner.

    Does anyone know when the 2017 models will be out and will the prices be increase?

    I presume the only change will be colours and spec?

    Just thinking wether to get a 2016 model now at a reduced price.

    I’m liking my ’16 Mega 290. 🙂 Also, some 2016 models and sizes took a long time to arrive and arrived in small numbers so depending on what you want you may have a long wait for the 2017 model. Then again, they’ll probably be the ones that have already sold out for 2016.

    My plan was to save and save and but a new bike around March 2017.

    My concern is by then that everything will be a lot more expensive and waiting will backfire on me.

    Bike active have some great prices at the mo on Mega’s but I don’t want to buy a 2016 model and then the 2017 changes loads.

    I’m also wondering if they will be reduced more at Xmas ready for the 2017 models.

    How you finding the 29er ChrisL. I can’t decide if I want a 275 or 290. Think I’ll need a demo day.

    I had short demos of both the 275 and the 290, followed by a longer demo on the 290. The 275 seemed like a good bike but personally it didn’t excite me much. I found the 290 more confident and fun. I am pretty tall (at least 6’3″) and have an XL, so my 29er also looks far more like a normal bike than a smaller wheeled bike with the same size frame. 🙂

    The 275 is a great bike as well – my dad has one. In comparison to my Giant Reign it is:

    * As long in the reach, as slack, but has a steeper seating position.

    * Livelier and more supportive rear suspension at the expense of being less plush, this gives it more pop and less of a downhill sat in feel in comparison to my Reign – which can feel dead.

    * Slightly higher BB – again a positive I think – it tips into corners quicker and responds to being pumped through corners and kickers better.

    * The frame utterly oozes feedback in regards to grip levels when the bike is leant over – it’s very confidence inspiring in a corner despite riding higher than my Reign.

    This comparison was done on the basis of it being equipped with it’s standard monarch – but it looks utterly killer with a coil…..like a mini Nukeproof Pulse (haven’t ridden it yet and you have to run it the wrong way round – it does feel more supportive in the car park though)
