Nukeproof Mega 290 WORX



Nukeproof has produced a limited edition of the Mega 290 which is called WORX. Nigel Page, team manager of the CRC Mavic team, shows us the creation of the British brand in this video. Let’s check out the specifications.

The frame incorporates the brushed alloy colorway of the very first Mega model, released in 2012.

Thanks to the collaboration with the sponsor brands of the CRC Mavic team in which Sam Hill runs, the Mega 290 WORX is equipped with high-end components. The fork has 170mm of travel unlike the standard bike which comes with a 160mm travel fork. This set-up will be available in a limited edition, with only 50 pieces worldwide.
