    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon ELITE

    Expirience with the Giga 290 Carbon ELITE 2022 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. If you ride super fast on tricky singletrails, you will love the calm handling of the Enduro of Nukeproof. There are bikes with a more sporty, but also with more comfortable seating approach. The Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon ELITE wants to combine the best of the two worlds with a moderate orientation. The high-quality frame meets all current standards and thus serves as a perfect foundation for a solid, complete bike. Especially for light riders under 70 kilos, the weight of this bike is enormous. With 15,92 kg, the ratio of rider to bike weight could be lighter. A shout out to Nukeproof – we take our hats off, because a first-class price / performance ratio make the Giga 290 Carbon ELITE for on very demanding single trails a benchmark in the price range under 6000 Euro.
