Mountain Biking UK magazine have just put the Nukeproof Scalp downhill bike through its paces, and we’re pleased to say they love it as much as we do!

The widely anticipated bike – as ridden by the Team ChainReactionCycles.com/Nukeproof downhill team – is on sale now and judging by the MBUK review, it’s been worth the wait. There are anodized black, silver or ‘NukeProof yellow’ frames available either with no shock, a Cane Creek Double Barrel shock or a RockShox Vivid out back. 

Here are a few snippets from the review: “Once we had the shock dialled in, the Scalp really came alive – the rear end reacting well to big hits, and retaining great small-bump sensitivity. There was barely any pedal kickback when you really put the power down on the rough stuff.”

“The Scalp turns on rails, with a real confidence-inspiring dark side, and persuades you to stay off the brakes into the next corner and let the bike do what it was made for.”

“Great performance at a reasonable price.”
