    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Giga 297 Carbon ELITE

    Expirience with the Giga 297 Carbon ELITE 2022 Racing legend Sam Hill's racing machine is also available in a mullet design with a small 27.5-inch rear wheel. The trend towards more high speed stability geometries stops with Nukeproof. Good! Because with this balanced handling model, you are equipped for all situations on the trail. The seating position can be described neither as sporty nor as comfortable. It has a moderate character. The frame is quite a good one. The Fully-chassis makes a very nice impression. With 15,68 kg, the Nukeproof Fully tends to be one of the heavier bikes on the market. Considering that in the 5799 Euro_de range, hardly any other manufacturer makes a better bike for the same specs of wheels. Nice!
