    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Mega 297 Carbon ELITE

    Expirience with the Mega 297 Carbon ELITE 2022 The Mega 297 Carbon ELITE is named after the world famous Megavalanche in Alpe de Huez, which pretty much defines its area of use. This bike loves extreme descents. When it comes down to handling, Nukeproof does not compromise. With its balanced handling style, the Nukeproof Fully is ready for the majority of singletrails. Anyone who has no special preferences for the seating position can´t go wrong with the Mega 297 Carbon ELITE. Because the saddle takes the balanced approach. 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. Another strong argument needs to be mentioned: the coherent geometry and the grippy tires will make you smile all the way to the bottom of the descent.
