For 2018 they have focussed on the smallest details in order to improve an already podium proven chassis. Making the decision to commit to a dedicated 1x drivetrain configuration across all models, this enabled their engineers to utilise the space required for a front derailleur to increase the main pivot bearing placement ensuring that maximum stiffness is achieved. This additional stiffness prevents tortional flex under pedalling and helps the chassis track through high speed, rough terrain without compromise. With stiffness in mind, they took the time to incorporate the very latest Boost 148 rear axle spacing allowing them to spec much stiffer and stronger wheels both front and rear. All 2018 Nukeproof Mega models will come with new wider spaced Boost wheels and forks enabling the rider to feel even more confident on the increased capability of the bike.

With the demands of Enduro World Series racers progressing at a rapid rate, they looked again at their geometry and saw an opportunity to tailor the frames to suit not only the fastest racers, but the growing tribe of riders that utilise their bikes every weekend whether that be shuttling runs at their favourite bike park, or heading off for an all day epic in the local hills. Slightly taller head tube lengths help tailor the cockpit feel to increase rider confidence, and a lengthened top tube on Large and X-Large frames should help even the tallest of riders feel at home on the new Mega.
