    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon FACTORY

    Expirience with the Giga 290 Carbon FACTORY 2022 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. The combination of a 63,5 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon FACTORY, even if you ride fast. When it comes to the seating position, Nukeproof chooses the middle ground between sporty and comfortable. The frame is quite a good one. The Fully-chassis makes a very nice impression. With a total weight of 15,51 kg, the Enduro of Nukeproof is one of the heavier Enduro that you get for under under 8000 Euro. All in all, in the on moderate runs category, you will hardly find a better overall package from parts and geometry.
