The Scout V3 is here


The humble hardtail, never to be underestimated.

The simplicity of a frame minus the rear bounce allows for an amount of efficiency, speed and a hell of a lot of fun. Often mooted as the the perfect style bike to master your first pedal strokes into the mountain bike world and equally at home developing you bike handling skills.

One thing is for sure, the Scout should never be underestimated

The All new scout is a graduate from the school of gravity. With geometry on the 'aggressive' side of the coin and designed to attack the trail ahead.
5 years on from the last Scout model, it was time for a refresh. Like with any cherished item, the improvements were done in a sympathetic way so not to spoil the receipt of the Scout. Taking keen note of customer feedback on how this hardtrail treasure can be improved upon, we believe this to be the finest vintage yet.

What's new on the Scout V3

The Scout V3 is an all new frame, completely new tube profiles, improved and updated geometry, revised sizing in both 275 and 290 platforms alongside a host of other tweaks detailed below:


  • All new frame: The frame itself has matured slightly. Subtle touches such as moulded protection through to new UDH dropouts plus a host of other upgrades,
  • Every one of the 6061 T6 Alluminium tubes have been engineered to optimise the ride, adding stiffness and compliance where needed to improve handling and the ride quality.
  • Updated geometry sees a longer, lower and slacker frame. These updates mean more sizings, changes to the Bottom Bracket height and well a slacker bike!
  • Steeper seat angles mean the Scout falls in line with the rest of the range with Saddle Offset theory in place, giving a position which offers ultimate pedalling efficiency and ergonomics in the saddle.
  • Size specific chainstays on the Scout are here to stay
  • Seat tubes are reamed to allow maximum seat post insertion allowing you to choose the optimal dropper post for you.

Geometry changes on the new Scout in line with the rest of the Range.

Seat Tube alterations allow for maximum seat post insertions

A Nukeproof Scout is the embodiment of the Nukeproof Attitude. In riding a Scout, you become part of something special, every ride of this hardcore hardtail rewards every last drop of skill and commitment whilst riding. In owning a Scout, you are inducted into something a little bit special too, the subtle nod of appreciation from other Scout Owners that you too, are part of the club.


The New Scout; Welcome to the world of Scoutin' About, it really is an attitude.
