Peter Walker

The new Giga definitely deserves its place in the Nukeproof family and is a good fit for the big brother of the Mega. If you’re looking for that downhill bike feeling with a single crown fork, you will definitely find it with the new Giga. The plush...

  1. Plush and confidence-inspiring suspension
  2. beautiful looking and covered with protective tape from the factory
  3. progression of the rear suspension is easily adjustable
  4. cool features on the frame
  1. Cable ports and cable routing at the cockpit
  2. Bolts at the pivot points came loose (we recommend some LOCTITE)

Blown Away - Nukeproof's New Mega 290 RS Delivers on All Fronts


Robin Weaver

The Mega 290 Elite is a serious big hitter and isn’t afraid of flattening anything that’s in its path

  1. Great kit for the money
  2. plenty of high-speed stability and confidence
  3. easy going, really comfortable ride in rough terrain
  1. Not a particularly efficient pedaller
  2. rear suspension not as supportive as some


Alan Muldoon

Brings top level performance to more competitive price point

  1. Aggressive riding position
  1. Michelin front tyre undermines confidence
