It’s Fort William World Cup weekend and the Nukeproof 275 and 290 has been unveiled.
Nukeproof’s new downhill has been officially announced today at Fort William World Cup… with a surprise/not-a-surprise wheel size option.
The Nukeproof Dissent 275 and 290 editions will be, you guessed it, available in 27.5″ wheels and 29″ wheels.
The Nukeproof Dissent is a brand new downhill bike for the Nukeproof range, breaking away from the Fallout suspension linkage used for 7 years on the Pulse. The bike uses the appropriately named Dissent platform and will be available in shops in November 2019.
The Dissent platform, Nukeproof say, “was originally conceived by our engineers as a concept to test several progression curve theories at once”.
Testing went well, Nukeproof says “we created something much better than expected, and the prototype won on its international debut at Crankworx Festival’s Garbanzo Downhill race with Sam Hill”.
The Nukeproof Dissent’s travel depends on the wheel size. The 27.5″ version has 200mm front and rear. The 29″ has 10mm less with 190mm rear and 200mm upfront.
True to form for new Nukeproofs, the bike will be aluminium, specifically hydroformed 6061 triple-butted aluminium.
There are 4 sizes available in the 27.5″ version – small, medium, large and extra-large. 29″ has Medium, Large and Extra Large.
The Dissent will be available as frame only, for £1999.99.
