Nukeproof Mega 290 Race Bike

Since 1999 the infamous Megavalanche race, which starts from the highest point on Pic Blanc (3300m) above the village of Alpe D’Huez, has been synonymous with All-Mountain riding and the highest level of true Mountain Bike racing.

Conceived originally in 2009 by the development team at Nukeproof in an attempt to build the perfect bike for this exact style of racing, the Mega was born. Now in its 3rd evolution, the new Mega is podium proven. It has tasted success with numerous national and international race wins to its name.

Lightweight and Strong Aluminium Frame
The 290 Race is designed with the same mentality as the Team bike; aggressive geometry and manufactured from a custom hydroformed T6-6061 aluminium to deliver an excellent performance-oriented All-Mountain and Enduro race bike that's strong, durable, and lightweight.

Nukeproof Mega: Aluminium Frame
Quality Components
Nukeproof has continued to evolve with the introduction of the most aggressive spec'd Mega ever. They have embraced the latest components available like SRAM's drivetrain, Shimano's brakes, and a RockShox fork and shock, thus replicating the bike that Sam Hill took to the EWS podium. The new Mega has evolved into the perfect All-Mountain and Enduro race bike!
