Nukeproof Pulse

“This bike wants to be ridden fast”

Having tasted the top step of the world cup podium again, there is one reason Sam Hill chooses the Pulse as his weapon of choice…

Thriving on rocky, rough terrain and tracking the ground like no other, it searches out the inside lines, the awkward corners, the difficult drop section… after all, who wrote the rule book?

 

Custom hydroformed frame with improved Fallout Linkage suspension

At the heart of the Nukeproof Pulse is our updated DH frame platform, now featuring a custom hydroformed tubeset engineered from double-welded T6 6061 aluminium.

The frame offers 210mm of rear travel via our proven three-stage Fallout Linkage, which has been refined to increased stiffness for a more stable bike and a smoother suspension feel throughout the stroke of the shock

Our new Style Fit adjustable chainstay features interchangeable dropout inserts allowing you to alter the wheelbase by 10mm depending on the type of track you’re riding, your height or riding style. The long (445mm) setting offers increased stability over fast, flowing terrain while the short (435mm) setting gives the option of improved control on steep, technical tracks.

A slack 63-degree head angle and centrally-positioned shock and linkage system ensure optimum race handling while other features include a true 1.5” head tube, ISCG 05 mounts and a 150mm x 12mm rear axle to keep things stable at the rear.
