2012 Nukeproof complete bikes – First look

By BikeRadar, UK | Friday, January 20, 2012 10.45am

Nukeproof have released details of their 2012 bike range. The Mega AM all-mountain/enduro rig, Scalp downhill sled and Snap four-cross/jump will all carry over from last year, and each will be available in a choice of two full builds.

The Pro models will be decked out with high-end parts, such as SRAM X0 shifting, a Cane Creek Double Barrel shock on the Scalp and a RockShox Reverb dropper post on the Mega. The Comp models have a more basic spec, but it's still reliable kit, including RockShox suspension, Maxxis tyres and own-brand Nukeproof finishing kit.

All three models are also available as frames. The Mega AM costs £899.99 with a RockShox Monarch shock; the Scalp is £1,349.99 with no shock, £1,499.99 with a RockShox Vivid or £1,799.99 with a Cane Creek Double Barrel; and the Snap is £349.99. For more details, check out the Nuke Proof website. Nuke Proof bikes are distributed by Hotlines in the UK.
