NUKEPROOF

SCOUT 290 RACE

Price: £1,099.00

From: Nukeproof, nukeproof.com

Nukeproof. For those with a few more laps around the sun under their belt, that name will always be associated with trick hyper-light hubs made from carbon fibre and aluminium. The Michigan-based brand enjoyed significant commercial success during the mountain bike boom of the ’90s, though like many other niche component brands at the time, Nukeproof suffered the same fate when the bubble burst not long after.

After it was bought by Chain Reaction Cycles, the Nukeproof brand was reinvigorated and relaunched in 2007, first with titanium shock springs, then 800mm wide riser bars that were relatively uncommon at the time. That range has expanded significantly over the past decade to now include pedals, stems, dropper posts and complete wheelsets – all built tough and priced reasonably too.

Nukeproof still makes all of that stuff, but these days it’s earning more recognition for complete bikes, most notably the Mega – one of the original enduro race bikes to hit the mass market. And thanks to UK mountain biking legend Nigel Page and a rather fast bloke by the name of Sam Hill, Nukeproof ’s reputation in the downhill and enduro race scenes has blossomed over the past decade.

About Singletrack

This issue has adventures from every corner of Britain, plus features from far flung corners of the globe. Whether you’re stay-cationing or joining the jet-setters, this summer issue is sure to have you occupied for those hours by the pool or sheltering from the rain outside your tent. (Hand) Made In China – We get unprecedented behind the scenes access to some of the bike factories in China and Taiwan. Is it a sorry sight of oppressed workers in shabby conditions? Or skilled bike builders in state of the art facilities? Classic Ride: Northern Ireland – Ian Bailey finds us a rare legal loop around the trails of Northern Ireland. Trail Hunter: Snowdon – Just because something is popular doesn’t mean it can’t be a classic. Tom Fenton opts for the dawn raid on the highest peak in Wales. Bike Test: Killer Hardtails (in Innsbruck) – Three tough trail hardtails from Kona, Nukeproof and Trillion make the trip to Innsbruck to see just how capable a modern hardtail can be. Group Test: Hi-Tech Tyres – James Vincent checks out the current generation of burly rubber. Is there such a thing as a tyre for all seasons? Or even a tyre for a whole Lake District ride? He’s been getting the punctures so you don’t have to. Interview: Keith Bontrager – Keith has been designing bikes and components since the eighties. He invented the mantra ‘Cheap, light, strong – pick two’ and has been behind Trek’s component line for over two decades. Chipps tries to get a little more than the usual stock answers to the stock questions. Column – Jason Miles discusses the merits of riding the wrong bike. Room 101 – Charlie the Bikemonger decides which bike world items and issues shall be thrown to the bears, or whatever it is that lives beyond the door of Room 101, and what shall be allowed to continue to roam our earth. ST Recommended – We’ve picked three products so good that you need to go out and buy them now. All of them. Oddball: Fuel – Coffee…
