The Nukeproof brand has always supplied bikes for adrenaline-seeking trail lovers. With 170 mm of suspension travel at the fork, the Nukeproof Megawatt 297 also fits this mold.
Shimano motors remain at the top of the engine popularity alongside Bosch motors. No wonder, as evidenced by EP8. Steep ramps are no problem for the Shimano motor. Additionally, the Shimano EP8 stands out with a well-rounded riding feeling and a gentle power delivery. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Nukeproof Megawatt 297 with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Nukeproof Megawatt 297 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

The golden shine Fox chassis can certainly be described as top-notch. With its absorption qualities, it can easily absorb rough shocks in descents and provide calm behind the handlebars. Setup-Nerds can squeeze out the maximum performance from the chassis thanks to the many setting options. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the brakes, Nukeproof middle class four pistons brakes by Hayes are used. Those who live for premium quality will love the transmission and parts of this EMTB. Here Nukeproof cranks up the bling-bling factor to 11. When it comes to the geometry, Nukeproof does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. Due to the short chainstays , when climbing steep sections, it requires active weight shifting to prevent the front wheel from lifting.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Nukeproof Nukeproof Megawatt 297

Friends of gravity should jot down the Nukeproof Megawatt 297. With an outstanding chassis and a good geometry, the Nukeproof is a real trail rocket even for really gnarly terrain. But a mediocre brake system are of course points of criticism that one should be aware of before purchasing.
