The Sam Hill Signature Series has been developed in conjunction with five time downhill World Champion Sam Hill. Sam needs no introduction. He is widely regarded as one of the best riders of all time and as such, he knows what works best! The signature series is a no-compromise range of race ready components chosen and designed with direct input from Sam to be the best tools for the job.
Signature Mud Saddle
The Sam Hill Series signature saddle design was inspired by Sam’s own motocross saddle and was created on Sams request: It’s most obvious feature is the pleated top cover which is designed to optimise grip in wet and muddy conditions. Made from a tough, durable Lorica material, it is tear resistant with Kevlar scuff guards on the outer corners to improve abrasion resistance. It features a smaller body than any other Nukeproof saddle, measuring in at 255mm x 127mm to maximise clearance and manoeuvrability on the bike. The smaller body, reduced padding and CrN Ti alloy rail compound, improve the strength-to-weight ratio. Weighing in at just 234g itis a lightweight contender, with a heavyweight punch.
Signature Lock-On Grips
The Sam Hill Series Signature Grip has been custom designed to Sams specification.. It features a soft-compound Kraton rubber which has been moulded to a specific width, thickness and circumference with Diamond texture pattern and a MX inspired half waffle to optimise grip, comfort, control and riding confidence. Featuring CNC-machined 7000-series aluminium lock-rings for wet-weather peace of mind and built in bar end plugs, the Signature Grip is both comfortable and confidence-inspiring.
Signature Riser Bar
Sam has always been particular about his handlebar set-up: Manufactured from high grade 7075 aluminium for strength and featuring a shot-peen finish to maximise fatigue resistance, The Sam Hill Signature Riser Bars feature a 20mm or 38mm rise, 760mm width and a 9° back-sweep/6° up-sweep, to optimise ergonomics and deliver confident handling through the roughest of terrain. Although the bars were built for the rigours of world cup level DH competition they are light enough for any kind of riding at just 298g making for a strong, comfortable, lightweight and confidence inspiring handlebar.
Signature Inline Seatpost
Custom 3D forged from 7075 series aluminium for optimum strength, the signature seat post consists of a one piece shaft and lower clamp section topped with a cold-forged clamp head,with both the upper and lower clamp and rail assemblies CNC-machined in critical stress areas for superior strength and fatigue resistance.The 400mm long shaft is turn finished for quality and features an elliptical internal bore to further increase the strength to weight ratio without compromising structural integrity.
Signature Direct Mount Stem
Precision CNC-machined from high-grade 7000-series aluminium, the Sam Hill Signature Series stem has been engineered for the optimum balance of light weight and stiffness without compromising structural integrity.
Featuring a one-piece four-bolt face plate for maximum stiffness and security against bar slippage, it is compatible with RockShox BoXXer and most other fork manufacturers utilising the standard 4 bolt crown mount.
