Lots of people have been leaning towards Enduro style bikes and Nukeproof has one called the Mega that we take a look at inside. In addition to the Mega, Nukeproof also has the Scalp and the Snap for DH and 4x/DJ duties.
The Mega is available in two build kits. The Pro and a Comp. Both use the same frame but part specifications vary across the builds. In addition to the complete options, a frame option is also available for those who want to build it themselves. Rear wheel travel is set at 150mm with a linkage actuated single pivot design. The Mega is designed around a 150-170mm fork. Three sizes are available; S, M, L.
