GIGA 297 Elite: 2022 Enduro Bike of the Year
MBUK/BIKE RADAR Verdict:
"The Giga 297’s balance, geometry and electrifying corner-carving speed are what really helps this machine stand out from the crowd". Beautifully balanced geometry; well-measured suspension; terrifyingly fast through the turns; solid parts package.
"The Nukeproof Giga 290 Factory secured Best In Test.... No other bike was able to generate as much speed and at the same time inspire so much confidence, whilst still offering a robust and potent spec straight out the box."
"The Megawatt scores a geometry, spec and suspension home run, making it our inaugural eMTB Bike of the Year. Goldilocks geometry figures; comfortable and efficient climbing; frugal but powerful Shimano motor; well-specced; easy to set up"
"Say hello to the third incarnation of the Nukeproof Scout 290. With more progressive geometry, it's ideal for the hardcore hardtail fan, and versatile enough for all-round riding.. Forgiving ride quality, with progressive geometry, wide range of frame sizes with shorter seat tubes across the board, frame size specific chainstay lengths, comprehensive frame protection"
"A women’s pant that hits the sweet spot with a solid price and great performance. Incredibly comfy on and off the bike, flattering design, great value for money"
"I had no reason to consider the wheels at all, in that they were performing well on a variety of terrain, rolling freely to the point where they basically went unnoticed."
"They were one of the alloy rims that survived testing entirely dent-free too."
"The Nukeproof Mega 290 Alloy Pro isn’t just the most affordable bike in the test, it’s also the fastest."
"Techy chutes are a walk in the park on the new Mega and it felt remarkable composed whenever it got steep enough for my bum to start twitching."
"The Nukeproof Horizon V2 wheelset offers budget conscious enduro and downhill mountain bikers a wheelset that supports hard charging without resorting to overly burly components. High quality hubs with a good pickup matched with custom rims present a great value proposition for those looking to upgrade their lackluster stock wheelset."
"The Blacklines manage to elevate themselves above the rest"
"Even if you don’t own a Nukeproof, its clothing range is well worth consideration."
"The kit comes with an alloy back plate and three different lengths of strap. The longest strap accommodates an inner tube, 25g CO2 canister, a small pump and a tubeless repair kit."
MEGAWATT 297: "NukeProof's first e-MTB is an absolute belter"
"Overall, the MegaWatt is hard to fault, thanks to its balanced geometry, impressive suspension and surprisingly agile handling. I’m a big fan."

"10/10 Horizon Pro-Flat Pedal of the Year"
It’s a thumbs up so far for the Nukeproof MegaWatt 297 Elite.
The spec is great, the price is very competitive and on the trails, the bike is bags of fun and adds loads of confidence on technical, challenging terrain. The bike will potter round mellow, surfaced trails but that feels like a waste, the MegaWatt is built to go fast.
MBR- Flat Pedal of the Year 5 years in a Row: Sam Hill Enduro/ Horizon Pro Pedal:
"This Horizon Pro is a perfectly rounded package that isn’t the lightest or the thinnest on test, but any pedals that rate higher on these fronts also have greater compromises elsewhere. It’s proven tough and simply feels so solid and secure underfoot for all shapes and sizes of rider, the Horizon is hard to beat. This new shape Enduro pedal is a very well-rounded package. Even with material shaved away to save meaningful grams, grip is still unquestionable and the platform is solid and secure underfoot for all shapes and sizes of rider, making it easy to recommend."

REACTOR 290 ELITE: 2020 Trail Bike Of The Year
"In the Reactor 290c Elite, Nukeproof has delivered a 29er trail bike that easily meets the demands of modern trail riding. It has a buttery smooth suspension response, where its reactive 130mm travel never feels too soft or lacks the support needed for hard charging. And charging hard is what this bike actively encourages. The full carbon frame makes for a precision instrument that can be used to slice through any trail, but the Reactor is not so stiff as to make it a double-edged sword. Balance is the key, and Nukeproof has delivered on all fronts."
