Nukeproof Mega 297 Elite Carbon Enduro Mountain Bike 2022 Factory Yellow

Season:2022

Brand:Nukeproof

Code:NPMEGA297EL

For over 10 years, our best-selling model; the Mega has been racking up awards on Enduro stages and in the press around the world. With 4 Enduro World Series titles to its name, the Mega has become an icon that is synonymous with racing. However, we never rest on our laurels and 2021 sees the introduction of the 4th generation Mega, now in a 297 offering.

The Mega 297 is a seriously capable machine, paring a 29” wheel upfront with a 27.5” wheel outback. Why two sized wheels? The 29” wheel up front maximises grip and rolling efficiency whilst the 27.5” wheel out back, ensures nimble handling for manoeuvrability and extra clearance for riders when leaning off the back of the bike. 

To optimise the weight, strength and stiffness, the Mega Carbon frame features a T700/800 UD woven carbon fibre frameset (Front and rear Triangle). The new carbon swingarms helps reduce the unsprung weight on the rear of the bike. All forged part are made from 6061-T6 Aluminium.

After winning 4 Enduro World Series Titles in 3 years the all new design is an evolution of our ultimate Enduro bike. At the heart of the frame is all new suspension Kinematics, designed to be more subtle off the top, whilst remaining progressive and predictable. Anti-Squat is used to create an effective pedalling bike that can be thrashed through technical terrain. The useable SAG range is also widened to allow riders to tune the suspension to the trails. Other key features include:
  • Front 29”/Rear 27.5” MX wheel size platform
  • Improved suspension kinematics
  • Tube-In-Tube design for easy cable installation
  • All new Geometry
  • SRAM UDH
  • Room for a 750ml water bottle inside the main front triangle

Size Guides are a great way to help you find the right bike, but we always recommend visiting our store to view and sit on the bike in person where possible or speaking to our advice team.

This Size Guide is based on an average build, if you have shorter arms or longer legs for example you will need to consider this when purchasing a bike. If you are between sizes, we always recommend sizing down as a smaller bike can be made bigger with adjustments. Stem length, Saddle height, Handlebar width and even Crank length can be changed to achieve the ideal riding position. See here for our generalbike sizing guide.
