    Summary

    Expirience with the Nukeproof Scout 290 RACE

    Nukeproof Scout 290 RACE Review With the Scout 290 RACE , the Brits deliver unfiltered riding fun in demanding terrain. We have checked all geometry measures and come to the following conclusion: the Nukeproof Trailbike is a very balanced customer. Compared with what the market offers, the seating position is neither super sporty, nor uber-comfortable. In the saddle of the Nukeproof Hardtail, you´ll enjoy a moderate position. On climbs, other bikes in the under 2000 Euro present a little better performance than the Nukeproof Trailbike.
