Expirience with the Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon ELITE

Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon ELITE Review The combination of the Giga 290 Carbon ELITE and racing legend Sam Hill is pretty much the most successful pairing enduro racing has ever seen. With a 63,5 degree head tube angle and a reach that tends to be long you can certainly speak of a modern geometry. The moderate seating position is likely to be the perfect middle ground for the majority of bikers. With a total weight of 15,92 kg, the Nukeproof Fully is one of the heavier Enduro that you get for under under 6000 Euro. The strongest case for this bike is however: The coherent geometry and grippy tires ensure full send mode on the trail.
