    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Mega 297 Carbon FACTORY

    Expirience with the Mega 297 Carbon FACTORY 2022 The Mega 297 Carbon FACTORY is named after the world famous Megavalanche in Alpe de Huez, which pretty much defines its area of use. This bike loves extreme descents. The geometry is moderate and makes for a balanced handling. There are bikes with a more sporty, but also with more comfortable seating approach. The Nukeproof Enduro wants to combine the best of the two worlds with a moderate orientation. At frame Nukeproof has not held back. The Fully-chassis makes an extremely good impression. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 15,65 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. Considering that in the 6799 Euro_de range, hardly any other manufacturer makes a better bike for the same specs of wheels. Nice!
