Mixed wheel fans can now add the Giga and the Mega to the list of options.


Robin Weaver

Well-considered changes have made the new Mega feel more dynamic, fun and exciting to ride

  1. Suspension is easy to set up and feels balanced; geometry works great, with plenty of sizes to choose from; climbs well even with all of this travel; solid spec
  1. Michelin tyres don’t always give the confidence to really push it on hardpack; uncomfortable saddle

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)


Alan Muldoon

Nukeproof updates its sucessful Mega race bike - revised geometry and extra sizes all with space for a bottle, but is the new Nukeproof Mega 290 better?

  1. Great geometry, fit, standover and size options, with all riders benefitting from longer dropper posts. Pedals like stink, even with the draggy Michelin tyres. Killer value for a shop-bought enduro bike.
  1. Rear suspension would benefit from a lighter damping tune on the Fox Float X2 shock. Brake pad rattle will drive you nuts.
