£6799.00 – Nukeproof Megawatt 297 RS Electric Mountain Bike Black 2022



The Nukeproof Megawatt 297 RS Electric Mountain Bike is a Mega with a motor. Designed so you can maximise the amount of time spent descending by getting you back to the top faster.Nukeproof Mega has been on a journey of constant development since 2009. From iteration to iteration, small incremental improvements gradually add up to become today’s thoroughbred Enduro race bike. Bike design and technology moves fast to keep up with the evolving demands of customers and racers. If you don’t keep up, then you get left behind.The notable absence in the Nukeproof range has been a bike with a motor. When choosing a motor/ battery partner, Nukeproof’s top priority was to partner with the right specialist. A brand that could offer leading-edge technology to help create competitive products whilst having the infrastructure in place to support customers during ownership. It’s taken a while for Nukeproof to join the e-Bike game, but the time has come and Nukeproof is proud to introduce the all-new Nukeproof Megawatt!Designed and developed from the outset alongside the latest Mega, the Megawatt retains the descending characteristics that have taken 4 Enduro World Series crowns but combines this with the latest Shimano Steps EP8 motor technology. The Megawatt Shares the race-proven geometry of the Nukeproof Mega, but in an all-new mixed wheel size platform. The 29” wheel up front, maximises grip and rolling efficiency whilst the 27.5” wheel out back, allows the bike to run shorter chainstays to ensure nimble handling and maximise manoeuvrability. The rear chainstays also benefit from a 3d moulded chain guard to keep the frame protected and running quiet allowing you to concentrate on the trail ahead. The Megawatt is offered in Size Small through to XXL and shares Nukeproof’s “saddle offset” philosophy with the Mega. This means steeper seat angles as sizes increase, to optimise the riding position and maximise comfort and efficiency.A custom-tuned rear shock (170mm of rear travel) on all models ensures that the Megawatt is super supple on the top whilst remaining progressive and supportive through the rest of the travel. The Anti Squat too is optimised to create a bike that offers ultimate performance on the descends and then returns you back to the top efficiently for more. The new Mega also has a wide SAG range (30%-35%) to allow you; the rider, to tune the characteristics of the bike to your preferences.The Megawatt was designed from the outset to optimise the performance of the Shimano EP8 Motor and battery. Crafted from hydroformed 6061 aluminium, the Megawatt shares some characteristics and tube shapes with its Mega sibling but features several notable differences. An all-new one-piece cast Bottom Bracket shell has been engineered to house the Shimano Steps EP8 Motor. The downtube to has been designed to maximise strength and rigidity whilst providing easy access to remove the internal battery for charging or transportation.Nukeproof is proud to introduce the Megawatt: A Mega with a motor. Maximise the amount of time spent descending by getting back to the top faster, again and again (and again).Please Note: Due to severe delays in the bicycle supply chain, we have been forced to make some alterations to the specification of the component parts supplied with this bicycle.
