£6499.99 – Nukeproof Giga 297 RS Carbon Mountain Bike 2023 Racing Red


The Nukeproof Giga 297 RS Mountain Bike Came to be because they wanted a bike with more travel and more capability – something that could still comfortably pedal uphill but would descend like an absolute hooligan.PLEASE NOTE: Due to Nukeproof (HOTLINES EUROPE LTD)being in administration, the frame and parts will have a 2 year warranty covered by Leisure Lakes Bikes. The extended 5 year warranty with Nukeproof is no longer available directly from Nukeproof.Enough is never enough in the hunt for the ultimate. It’s a constant push for bigger, longer, rougher and faster with ever increasing demands on the performance and capabilities of our bike. The pursuit is endless.Its a motto that athletes like Sam Hill live by. The new Nukeproof Giga is the embodiment of this idea; Designed to be the ultimate hard-hitting Super-Enduro weapon for when you just need more.Thus came the Giga , a long-travel weapon that’s part Dissent downhill bike and part Mega enduro bike. Offered in both the standard 290 and mixed 297 wheel options, the Giga features ultra-tunable geometry and top-notch component package.sFast enough to land on podiums in the Enduro World Series and playful enough for the bike park, the Giga is the ultimate bike for riders hungry for more. To us at Nukeproof, it’s our “parkduro” bike — our choice for days where the downhill bike feels a little big and the enduro bike a little small.The suspension platform is based on the same horseshoe driven linkage as our award-winning Dissent downhill frame, albeit now with a 2-stage main pivot flip chip. Using an eccentric axle system, riders can alter the Kinematic progressivity; the bike can be tailored to suit the conditions on the trail with only an 8mm allen key.Developed alongside the most recent generation of the Nukeproof Mega enduro bike, the Giga came from the desire to have a bike as versatile as the Mega but capable of shredding just as hard as our downhill bike.We started with the test mule for the Dissent downhill bike — which was in development at the time — and modified it to work as a long-travel enduro bike. The result was mind blowing; not only did the prototype come alive at warp speed in the rowdiest descents, but it also climbed well and felt maneuverable in tight terrain.It was so good; our test riders didn’t want to give the prototype frame back. The suspension is based on the same horseshoe-driven linkage used in our Dissent downhill bike, except with the addition of a two-stage main pivot flip chip. It’s designed to be supple off the top, supportive in the mid-stroke and progressive through the rest of the travel. This means the top-end of the travel has supple small bump compliance and solid mid-stroke support for better cornering and pumping.Riders can tune the geometry to their liking through that main pivot flip chip and through an eccentric axle system that adjusts shock progressivity.Setting 1 = 25.5% progressionSetting 2 = 29% progression.Both settings have a super supple beginning for small bump compliance. They also both have good mid-stroke support for better cornering and pumping. Like the Dissent, the progression drops off in the end stroke to prevent mid-stroke harshness or spiking and allows more tuning options with volume spacers.The + Progressive setting can be used to add shock progression on a coil set up just like adding a volume spacer to an air shock. The added suppleness is also good in wet and slippery conditions.The Giga Frame is constructed completely from UD 700/800 Carbon fibre. This allowed us to optimise the stiffness and compliance of the frame parts individually. The front triangle has been tailored for stability and precision, whilst the rear triangle was designed for compliance to help tracking and provide grip. Another bonus of the carbon rear triangle is that it has a lower un-sprung mass for ultimate suspension performance.Available in 5 sizes (Small to XXL) in either 27.5″or 29″ wheel size, there is the perfect fit for everyone. The frame geometry is Long, Low, Slack and Steep as it is based around our saddle offset principle, which ensures the seated riding position is tailored across all sizes, with steeper seat angles on bigger frames. The Seat tube is also designed for maximum seat post insertion to allow maximum drop.The Giga is also sculptured to fit a 750ml water bottle (carbon bottle cage included) as well as an accessory mount under the top tube for emergency trail tools. All models also feature an integrated rear mud guard and plenty of clearance for up to 2.5″ tyres. The frames feature a clear paint protection kit as standard with 3D contoured rubber downtube, seat and chain stay protection.Nukeproof Giga 297 RS Mountain Bike HighlightsFrame-Nukeproof Giga 290 Carbon, 170mm Travel, ultra-strong monocoque UD Carbon Fibre frame, adjustable main pivot, internally piped cable routing, ISCG 05 mounts, Enduro Bearings, Threaded 73mm BB, Boost 148mm
