    Expirience with the Nukeproof Mega 290 Carbon ELITE

    Expirience with the Mega 290 Carbon ELITE 2022 If you buy the Nukeproof Enduro, you will really feel suitably prepared for on extremely technical trails. Because that´s exactly what it was developed for. With a 64 degree head tube angle and a reach that tends to be long you can certainly speak of a modern geometry. 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. Especially for light riders under 70 kilos, the weight of this bike is enormous. With 15,7 kg, the ratio of rider to bike weight could be lighter. Trail lovers should nevertheless be convinced by this argument: in the downhill, the coherent geometry ensures you´ll have a wide smile in your face.
