Bike Check: Sam’s new Mega 290

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

“90’s Suzuki inspired Mega 290”

So… It’s not the end to 275, he’s not racing clips, it’s not a marketing stunt and the world will keep turning, but YES Sam Hill has decided to race a Mega 290 for Enduro World Series, Maderia. 

After a period of testing after the first two EWS, Sam decided to give the 290 a go, it’s not a definitive switch to the Mega 290, just a case of choosing the right bike to suit him and the EWS tracks.  

Sam is riding a stock medium Mega 290 frame (painted by Refurbmybike, Belfast) featuring our new Purple (Est. June ’19 release) Horizon components. 

The look is inspired by one of Guy Coopers early 90’s Suzuki RM250, which Sam is currently restoring in his spare time at home. Decals from Slik Graphics.
