In the early 90s, the up-and-coming mountain bike market demanded innovative and reliable solutions for the ever-increasing demands of mountain bikers. Nuke Proof Industries founder John Muenzenmeyer was a pioneer in the use of exotic materials such as titanium and carbon fiber. Especially the carbon/aluminum hubs spread rapidly and soon athletes like James Bethea were seen riding around and winning races with carbon handlebars, titanium frames and other innovative brand components.
When the 90s bike boom in the USA was over, Northern Ireland downhill rider and Nuke Proof Industries fan Michael Cowan brought the brand to Belfast. In 2007, the first titanium springs and handlebars were launched under the new name Nukeproof. An early dream of the team of experienced mountain bike racers was a longer, more powerful bike for the high demands of the famous Megavalanche Downhill race in L'Alpe d'Huez. The legendary Nukeproof MEGA emerged from the 3-year development process.
Further partnerships, among others with Downhill Masters World Champion Nigel Page, and the founding of an own team for the UCI Downhill World Cup, allowed Nukeproof to test their bikes and components at the highest level. Especially the cooperation with two-time Enduro World Series winner Sam Hill has shaped the development of Nukeproof like no other. Sam drives one of the fastest Enduros in the world: a Nukeproof MEGA 275. And you can too!
The MEGA has won numerous victories and podium places to date and is already on the market in its 4th edition. Thanks to the unique balance, the high-quality chassis and the sophisticated accessories it masters every bend and every terrain. The MEGA 275 is available in various versions with aluminium or carbon frames as well as as a 29“ MEGA 290. For fast descents, the most difficult enduro tracks or all-day use.
The RockShox Lyrik Charger fork and the Super Deluxe rear shock absorb any impact, while the SRAM Eagle drive systems quickly accelerate you back to top speed. And if you need to stop quickly, SRAM Guide disc brakes guarantee phenomenal braking power. Sam and Nukeproof work closely with Michelin to find the optimum rubber compounds and profiles. The Michelin Wild Enduro tyre is not only a force on downhills, but also rolls in every type of terrain. Handlebar Grips from the Sam Hill Signature series and other Horizon parts such as stems, handlebars and saddles make the bike a performance monster. At an unbeatable price!
Such a first-class bike as the MEGA deserves only the best pedals: Sam Hill‘s signature Horizon Pedals. Almost all parts of the bike as well as individual spare parts and components can be purchased as independent products. From complete frames of the MEGA 275 or 290 in aluminium or carbon to various seatposts and clamps, brake pads, hubs and springs to high-quality MTB wheelsets: Nukeproof offers everything to ride at your limit. Strong parts for strong riders - an incomparable experience that also benefits road cyclists.
