The Scout 290 Comp features an agile, durable and lightweight alloy frame and 29″” (29er) wheels. Nukeproof has kitted this Comp model out with 140mm-travel Marzocchi Bomber Z2 suspension forks that soak up bumps and knocks from the terrain while ensuring you experience outstanding front-wheel traction. It is also equipped with a Shimano Deore 12-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 10-51T cassette hydraulic disc brakes, offering you smooth and fast-shifting gear performance and exceptional all-weather stopping power. It’s also fitted with Tubeless Ready Nukeproof Neutron wheels wrapped in Addix compound Schwalbe Magic Mary and Nobby Nic tyres. Nukeproof has also armed this hardtail with a superb aftermarket-quality Nukeproof finishing kit and a Brand-X Ascend dropper seatpost. The Hardtail: Often mooted as the perfect style bike to master your first pedal strokes into the world of mountain biking or the best way to develop your bike handling skills. Mastering a hardtail will sharpen your skills from perfecting your balance point on the bike through to being creative with the trail ahead reading natural features to generate speed. One thing is for sure though; you shouldn’t underestimate what this hardtail is truly capable of. The all-new Scout is a graduate of the school of gravity. Its geometry is on the “aggressive” side of the coin, designed to attack the trail ahead. The new pedalling position, developed using Nukeproof’s Saddle Offset theory, will propel you efficiently up the trail-ready for the gnarliest descent you can handle. The new geometry adds to the all-around capability of the Scout. Improved riding position and sizing combined with a low bottom bracket enhances your control in the corners. The Scout is a versatile frame that is ready to scout out endless singletrack, session technical enduro trails or just hoon around like you’re auditioning for the latest “Scoutin’ About” video epic. The Nukeproof Scout is the embodiment of the Nukeproof attitude. When riding a Scout, you become part of something special and every ride of this hardcore hardtail rewards every last drop of your skill and commitment. You are inducted into something a little bit special too, that subtle nod of appreciation from other Scout owners that you too know what a special frame this is, through to the support and community that has grown around Scout ownership. The New Scout, welcome to the world of Scoutin’ About, it really is an attitude. The 3rd generation of the Scout has been tweaked to be the finest vintage of Scout. Key Upgrades Include: All-New Frame: The frame itself has matured slightly. Subtle touches such as moulded protection through to new UDH (universal derailleur hanger) dropouts to name but a few of the upgrades “Tweaked” Geometry: Nukeproof loved the way the V2 Scout rode, but a few subtle updates to areas such as the seat tube and head tube angles make this latest version even better Improved Sizing: The new Scout offers size specific chainstays as well as improved spacing of sizes to match the rest of the Nukeproof range Sizing: Scout comes from Small to XL in 275 and Medium to XXL in the 290 version, updated geometry to give the V3 Scout more efficiency to the trails and more attitude on the trails The all-new Nukeproof Scout builds on the cult-like “Scoutin’ About” attitude of the hardtail.
