[Press Release] – 2018 saw the launch of the new Mega 275c: The bike that, along with riders Sam Hill and Elliott Heap, just wrapped up a its third World Enduro title (2 for Sam Hill, 1 for Elliott Heap). For 2019 the Nukeproof Mega range gets even better: with some subtle refinements, upgraded specification and the introduction of a new model. We have also been working to improve our already awesome “hardcore hardtail” Scout, with the best line up to date and we have created something a little different with the Digger gravel/adventure/hack bike. We are proud of our Belfast home and with much of the colour schemes in the range inspired by early 90’s rock and punk posters, we headed to one of the most iconic venues in the city to shoot the new range: The Empire Music Hall.
MEGA 275c RS —The Mega 275c was launched late last year, so the new 2019 models simply offer subtle refinement to the frame and finishing kit. It retains its EWS winning gravity focused geometry, but gets the addition of the latest offerings from Rockshox, Sram, Fox and Shimano. This combined with the fact that all the 2019 Mega models use the brand new Michelin Wild Enduro tyres and latest Nukeproof components: Wide bars, short stems, Horizon SL saddles and Sam Hill Signature Grips; adding up to a race ready package, straight out of the box!
New for 2019, the Mega 275 Carbon Pro brings carbon to our core of the range: giving riders the choice of 3 different specification options of Carbon (RS, Factory & PRO). We wanted to create a bike that was uncompromised, featuring products that would stand the test of time. Suspension is taken care of by the very latest Rockshox Lyric RC fork and Super Deluxe RC3 rear shock. With updated contact points, a Sram GX Eagle drivechain, Michelin Wild Enduro Tyres and brand new Mavic Deemax Elite wheels: you have a great performing and reliable spec list that is more than ready for any round of the EWS.
MEGA 275c PRO
For those riders who wish to build their own custom dream bike; we offer an awesome unique colour way to the Carbon Frame only’s. It’s a hell of a line up.
MEGA 275 COMP
It’s not all about the high end price tags; not to be overlooked are the Mega 275 and 290 Comp models. Always one of our top sellers, we’ve updated the Comp level specification to include a Sram NX Eagle drivetrain and the latest Rockshox Yari Charger RC fork so it’s just as ready to ride, race and enjoy as its more exotic siblings.
MEGA 275c FACTORY
We’ve had the 290 as an alternative option to the 275 for a long time now. Both are intended for the same purpose, but for riders that prefer 27.5” or 29”. Year on year 29” interest seems to grow and we have further improved offerings with the awesome Mega 290 Factory, PRO and Comp models. With a new 290 Alloy frame launched in 2018, the Mega 290 has been a huge success. The question we will usually be asked is – “Why no carbon?” We’re not saying never, but until we can produce a frame that we feel offers significant advantages over the alloy sibling, we will hold off.

MEGA 290 COMP
As note for riders, all 2019 Nukeproof Mega’s (Rockshox and Fox equipped) will come with 2 volume spacers in the rear shock. With these shocks so easy to tune, we wanted to give our riders to option to be able to remove to taste and to tune the shock to their personal preference.
