Expirience with the Nukeproof Reactor 290 Carbon ELITE

Nukeproof Reactor 290 Carbon ELITE Review The Reactor 290 Carbon ELITE certainly doesn't have the lightest frame, but it does have an integrated fun factor in rough terrain. Because that's what the Reactor was developed for. If you ride super fast on tricky singletrails, you will love the calm handling of the Reactor 290 Carbon ELITE. The combination of a long top tube and low stack value will make you sit sporty on the Nukeproof All Mountain. Especially for light riders under 70 kilos, the weight of this bike is enormous. With 14,66 kg, the ratio of rider to bike weight could be lighter. The Nukeproof All Mountain shows what its capable of in the downhill.
