    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Giga 290 COMP

    Expirience with the Giga 290 COMP 2022 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. With a flat 63,5 Grad head tube angle and a long reach, the geometry corresponds to the current trend. The seating position does not manage to be too athletic, nor too upright. It´s moderate character is likely to suite the vast majority of bikers. With the frame, Nukeproof supplies a very high quality Fully-chassis. On the downhill, however, the Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon COMP is left in the dust by its competitors. With a total weight of 16,27 kg, the Nukeproof Fully is one of the heavier Enduro that you get for under above 8000 Euro. 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.
