Winning a bike test in a quality magazine is a huge accolade. We were stoked to hear that the new Mega 290 Expert had taken the 2020 “best in test” in the affordable Enduro test by leading publication; Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine.
For 2020 the Mega 290 was reborn into the trail brute that we always wanted. Updated and developed with Sam Hill on Enduro World Series stages, the development prototype alloy version was raced three times in 2019 and on the podium twice.
This went on to be the 2020 base for the Comp and Expert models. The Expert was an all new spec model for 2020 to offer a higher tier of components on an alloy frame at customers request (see the full spec here).
We’re proud to see the Mega 290 win the sub 3500euro shoot out Vs a very good level of competition from some big brands.
“The Nukeproof Mega 290 Expert feels easier to ride fast than any other bike in this group test.”
“…..it will crush them as soon as the track gets gnarly. The most impressive
feat of the Nukeproof is that it does it all so easily, complementing your riding whatever your level.”
