Mega 297 Carbon

For over 10 years, our best-selling model; the Mega has been racking up awards on Enduro stages and in the press around the world. With 4 Enduro World Series titles to its name, the Mega has become an icon that is synonymous with racing. However, we never rest on our laurels and 2021 sees the introduction of the 4th generation Mega, now in a 297 offering. Since 2009 the Nukeproof Mega has been on a constant development to meet the demands of our riders and customers alike.This has resulted in the launch of theMega 297. The pursuitfor performance isendless. Developed in conjunction with our elite athletes, the Megais now available ina mixed(MX)wheel size platform.TheMega297is a seriously capable machine,paring a 29” wheel up front with a 27.5” wheel out back. Why two sized wheels? The29” wheel up front to maximise grip and rolling efficiency whilst the 27.5” wheel out back, ensures nimble handling for manoeuvrability and extra clearance for riders when leaning off the back of the bike.  To optimise the weight, strength and stiffness, the Mega Carbon frame features a T700/800 UD woven carbon fibre frameset (Front and rear Triangle). The new carbon swingarms helps reduce theunsprungweight on the rear of the bike. All forged partaremade from 6061-T6 Aluminium. After winning 4 Enduro World Series Titles in 3 years the all new design is an evolution of our ultimate Enduro bike. At the heart of the frame is all new suspension Kinematics, designed to be more subtle off the top, whilst remaining progressive and predictable. Anti-Squat is used to create an effective pedalling bike that can be thrashed through technical terrain. The useable SAG range is also widened to allow riders to tune the suspension to the trails. Other key features include: Front 29”/Rear 27.5”MXwheel size platform Improved suspension kinematics Tube-In-Tube design for easy cable installation All new Geometry SRAM UDH Room for a750ml water bottle inside the main front triangle The new Mega framegeometry features dynamic saddle offsetwhich is designed tooptimiseseatedrider weight distributionon each frame size. This is achieved throughseat anglewhich arebespoke toeach frame size.
