“Introducing the class of 2017”
The 2017 range sees the introduction of the Digger, our no-limits adventure bike. Developed at the request of our athletes to allow them to train and explore as well as shred their local area.
The New Digger will be available in two spec levels 1.0 and 2.0
Scout 275 and 290 also have new spec models out, taking advantage of the new Sram and Shimano 1×11 systems and the new Yari fork on the 275 and 290 Comp. We are also introducing the Scout 275 Sport. With the same Scout Frame and a competitive build its a great introduction to the Nukeproof range. Frame only options will also be available.
New Sram NX and Shinamo SLX 11 speed drive trains will be on Race and Comp spec bikes
The Mega gets a face lift for 2017. With new finishes and extended spec levels to improve the range.
The Team model is based on Sam Hill’s EWS winning Mega 275. Designed to be ready to win out the box, it features 170mm Rockshox Lyric up front, new Mavic Deemax Pro wheels and Mavic tyres. The Team also includes the revolutionary Sram 1×12 Eagle drive train. Nukeproof finishing kit is also upgraded to includes our design and innovation award winning 780mm wide Carbon bars and our Vector AM saddle. This bike is ready to win.
The Pro Models are fully murdered out this year in both 275 and 290 options (290 pictured). Again a Rockshox Lyric is upfront, but due to consumer demand we now offer the Pro with Shimano’s all new XT 1×11 drive train and XT brakes. Schwalbe’s Magic Mary helps up front with an upgraded trail star Nobby Nic keeping the rear under control. The Pro really is ready to shred any trail.
The Race models get a huge upgrade using Srams new NX 1×11 drivetrain and Rockshox’s Yari Forks. With colours and graphics inspired by our trips to Italy the 290 and 275 Race models are born of the same DNA as the Team and Pro builds.
The Mega Comp 275 and 290 are true trail weapons. With the Rockshox Pike and Monarch Solo air taking care of damping, the Comp is designed to allow you to push your boundaries, railing berms and trails faster than you thought possible. Available in both 275 and 290 models
Lastly we introduce the 2017 Pulse. With geometry updates and an improved build specifications the 2017 Pulse is ready to take to the track. Again the Pulse will be available in two guises.
Firstly the Team, a no nonsense World cup racer, as used by the CRC-Paypal team this year. With podium proven pedigree, the Pulse has helped Elliot Heap to 3rd overall at the Junior Downhill World Cup, Mike Jones to qualifying 1st at the Fort William World Cup and scooped numerous national titles in 2016.
The Comp is a designed for the national racer and riders who just love riding downhill. Our youth Development team raced the Pulse Comp with great success in 2016 and winning national and international races proving it’s competitiveness and speed. With our Custom Hydroformed T6 6061 Aluminium frame and performance spec including Rockshox Boxxers Team and Kage RC, the all new GX 7 speed Sram drive train, the comp is ready to perform day in and out.
