Nukeproof’s Dissent downhill bike is the next evolution of the Nukeproof Scalp and Pulse that has seen top results over the last few years.
Announced today, the Nukeproof Dissent will be the next generation of downhill bike from the Chain Reaction Cycles owned brand and will be raced by Adam Brayton and, of course, Team Wideopenmag.
Nukeproof’s downhill hiatus seems to be over and, after a short spell without a downhill bike, they’re back with an all new offering, the Nukeproof Dissent.
The Nukeproof Dissent is the 3rd generation of Nukeproof downhill bike, following on from the Scalp and the Pulse. In 2017, Nukeproof decided to press ‘pause’ on their DH team, halt production of downhill bikes and focus on enduro…. resulting in a pause in the downhill bikes.
Despite the move to enduro, Nukeproof have been quietly beavering away behind the scenes with Kelan Grant racing a prototype at Fort William World Cup, Sam Hill winning the 2018 Crankworx Garbanzo DH on another pre-production bike and now, Adam Brayton, racing another.
Today’s news sees Nukeproof not only announce the name of their new bike (The Dissent) but also the updated design. Details are pretty scarce but it looks like Nukeproof will use their Fallout linkage design, with a tweaked suspension layout.
More when we know it … but for now, that’s all we’ve got!
The real question is though, will we Sam Hill on a Dissent at the World Championships in Mont Saint Anne this summer?
