Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon Factory 2018
H i g h i n F i b r e 

Leaning on their experience from the development of the award winning Warhead Carbon handlebar range, Nukeproof have spent 4 years in the development of the brand new Carbon Mega 275. Utilising a blend of the highest quality carbon fibre composites, the Mega 275 Carbon has been hand crafted with 1 goal in mind... Winning! Not only is the chassis now significantly lighter than its aluminium counterpart, the strength and reliability of the frame has been vastly improved enabling every rider to push harder, faster and with more confidence than ever before. Tested on the toughest of terrain and in the most varied conditions by Enduro World Series Winner Sam Hill, the 2018 Mega sets out to tackle every ride with its trademark attitude.

U p d a t e d R a c e G e o m e t r y

With the demands of Enduro World Series racers progressing at a rapid rate, Nukeproof looked again at the 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.

M e t r i c S h o c k S i z i n g

The product development team work extremely closely with the suspension partners and spent endless hours
working on the perfect shock configuration for the new Mega. The perfect partnership between rear shock
technology and frame kinematics has always been in the very root of our thought process when developing bikes
and the new Mega with its brand new ’metric’ shock standard is no different. Designed to work perfectly with
both Air and Coil sprung rear shocks, Nukeproof have addressed some of the areas that they felt could be improved on
over the previous design such as hardware improvements and higher spec shocks across the board. The new Mega utilises the brand new Rockshox Super Deluxe rear shock (Fox Float X2 on the Mega 275 Carbon Factory) and hardware now comprises of a wider spaced 25mmx8mm front mount, with a rocker link mounted bearing system to improve shock sensitivity and reduce the amount of wear through heavy usage. This combination adds even more stiffness to the chassis through these more secure fixtures and the ‘Metric’ rear shock system with increased bushing overlap.
