Frustrated by the feeling that they needed to keep up with the ebike crowd, Nukeproof launch the Scout(er).
Nukeproof have always stuck their guns, but they couldn’t hold back the tide forever. The Scout(er) is their way of bumping elbows with the ebikes.
The darkest winter nights have been encouraging the darkest of thoughts. The “slog“ of lapping heavy going British trails, brought on a new anger and envy at the electrical-powered brethrens. If you can’t beat them, join them?
But how you cry? Nukeproof don’t have an electrical-powered bicycle market… And we still don’t. We’ve bypassed electric and gone straight back a bygone era. Please welcome our latest addition to the Nukeproof range; the Scout(er).
Designed and developed deep in the Black Country, UK. With over 3 months of tinkering, engineering and refining in the garden shed, it’s almost ready for the trails. Harnessing the power of an eBike, but with technology from a lost generation technology, a 2-stroke 80cc engine 3BHP motor. As with any new bike, you’ve got to bring in a new standard, so we’re please to introduce super mega whopper boost 168mm spacing (box ticked).
