Nukeproof Pulse downhill race bike launched

Scalp successor gets Val d'Isere debut this weekend

Nukeproof have launched the Nukeproof Pulse, their next generation downhill race frame and evolution to the Scalp.


It’s the product of two seasons of engineering development and testing input from the Team CRC/Nukeproof squad and will get its first public airing at this weekend’s Mountain Bike World Cup round at Val d’Isere.

The stand-out design feature on the 6061 aluminium frame is an adjustable chainstay option called Style Fit which allows you to alter the wheelbase by 10mm (435mm/445mm) depending on the terrain and is achieved by using interchangeable drop out inserts.

Nukeproof UK distributor Hotlines say pricing and availability will be confirmed in the next few days, so we’ll be sure to update the story as and when we get details.
