Expirience with the Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon FACTORY

Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon FACTORY Review The combination of the Giga 290 Carbon FACTORY 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 Nukeproof Enduro. There are bikes with a more sporty, but also with more comfortable seating approach. The Nukeproof Enduro wants to combine the best of the two worlds with a moderate orientation. With 15,51 kg, the Nukeproof Enduro tends to be one of the heavier bikes on the market. Despite this criticism, the coherent overall concept makes the Giga 290 Carbon FACTORY to on extremely technical trails a buying recommendation in the price range 6999 Euro range.
