THE ALL NEW MEGAWATT CARBON
Born from a shared heritage of performance, Nukeproof are proud to present the All New Megawatt Carbon in collaboration with SRAM.
The newest edition to Nukeproof's race proven e-enduro bikes and developed in tandem with the cutting-edge new SRAM Eagle Powertrain, its a bike Nukeproof couldn't be more proud of combining the latest and greatest in eMTB technology wrapped in a Carbon frame designed ready for the trails and race tracks.
NUKPROOF x SRAM:
Developed alongside the all new SRAM Eagle Powertrain, the Megawatt Carbon takes eMTB riding to the next level.
SRAM Eagle Powertrain creates an ecosystem of performance with integration between SRAM AXS components and SRAM Eagle Drivetrain and SRAMs all new software into one cohesive package.
The Nukeproof engineering team were honoured to be given a front row seat in the development of the SRAM Eagle Powertrain system giving them the opportunity to create the very best product in order to house this revolutionary system.
Starting with our award winning Megawatt geometry, suspension platform and kinematics, the Megawatt Carbon elevates all areas of detail, design and performance to the next level.
The combination of meticulous engineering, years of race research and an award winning platform, there is no bike more dialled on the market today.
Let's start at the beginning...
Nukeproof's relationship with SRAM has spanned many years, being a pivotal partner to our Enduro and Downhill factory race teams. It was a great honour for the Nukeproof team to be approached over two years ago by the SRAM team to co-develop on this exciting new project.
Requiring little encouragement, the Nukeproof design and engineering team pivoted their attention to the then nameless Carbon Ebike to support the hugely exciting SRAM Eagle Powertrain. In just six short weeks, a pre production 'mule' was created to provide SRAM housing for the system.
Fast forward and many refinements later, an alloy mule verion of the Megawatt was developed. This platform was the test bed for thousands of hours or testing with SRAM and Nukeproof engineers. SRAM and Nukeporof also proved the new Powertrain throughout the 2022 E-Enduro World Series with the Nukeproof-SRAM Factory Racing team athletes and SRAM's Blackbox athlete Yannik Pontal. Yannick went on to win the overall World Championship with SRAM Eagle Powertrain. The Nukeproof "Mule" earning itself victory at the 2022 EWS E-100 in the Tweed Valley, with none other than Nukeproof boss Michael Cowan.
Rigorous innovation and adjustments following inital Megawatt Carbon samples and nearly three years after the first discussion, the Megawatt Carbon was born.
WATCH HOW IT WAS DEVELOPED:
Award-Winning Suspension Performance:
The new Megawatt Carbon suspension platform is an evolution of the current podium proven Megawatt/Mega platforms. Nukeproof have increased the starting rate marginally to help with a beginning to mid stroke suppleness. Mid stroke to end Stroke has increaseed in progression to help with support and improve the lively poppy feel increasing travel slightly to 172mm with a 24% progression.
Anti squat % has increased from 92% to 102% (at sag) in the climbing gears this enables the bike to stay up in its travel when tackling steep technical climbs.
Anti-rise % has stayed pretty similar - high % in the beginning stroke that helps keep a balanced braking/bike feel and falling off to allow suspension movement when taking bigger hits.
Geometry is designed around the saddle offset for each size to optimise seated weight distribution- even more important for an E-bike. This results in steeper seat angles across the board but especially on larger sizes for taller riders.

Nukeproof feel passionately that all bikes should be offered with the highest spec and our Megawatt Carbon Pro is no different. With the same Carbon bars, Carbon bottle cage, Sam Hill grips and Continental Rubber as its big brother. The main difference is the Pro is donning the finest GX gearing, Horizon V2 Wheels and a Vivid Select+ shock.
The top of the range SRAM components and suspension paired with Nukeproof's podium winning carbon bars, Horizon Pro Wheels, Sam Hill Grips and Horizon saddle and carbon bottle cage. Completed with the finest Continental Kryptotal rubber. A bike that is simply, the highest spec vessel.
