Expirience with the Nukeproof Giga 290 COMP

Nukeproof Giga 290 COMP Review The combination of the Giga 290 Carbon COMP 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 COMP, even if you ride fast. Anyone who has no special preferences for the seating position can´t go wrong with the Nukeproof Fully. Because the saddle takes the balanced approach. If you love crisp downhill runs, there are other Enduro around under 6000 Euro that would suit you better. With 16,27 kg, the Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon COMP tends to be one of the heavier bikes on the market. One should not forget: the geometry is the heart of a mountain bike. For 4699 Euro, Nukeproof provides more than the competitors in the same price range.
