    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Reactor 290 Carbon ELITE

    Expirience with the Reactor 290 Carbon ELITE 2022 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. The combination of a 65 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Nukeproof All Mountain, even if you ride fast. If you want to get ahead efficiently and quickly, you will welcome the sporty riding position. The high-quality frame meets all current standards and thus serves as a perfect foundation for a solid, complete bike. When viewing the 14,66 kg, its apparent: there are lighter All Mountains in this price range. 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.
