    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon RS

    Expirience with the Giga 290 Carbon RS 2022 The combination of the Giga 290 Carbon RS 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 RS, even if you ride fast. The seating position of the on very demanding single trails moves in a moderate range between sporty and comfortable. If you look at the frame as the heart of a bike, then Nukeproof has done everything right. The frame leaves a very presentable impression. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 15,37 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. The Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon RS has still a ace up its sleeve. When it goes down the hill, the absolutely coherent geometry always makes you want to come back for more.
