The Digger offers something slightly different to some of the “true gravel bikes” in the market, designed with the soul of a mountain bike. Slightly more gravity-focused geometry, wide bars, dropper posts, and 1x drivetrain.

Nukeproof Digger RS Gravel Adventure Bike 2022 Gloss Black




What even is “gravel biking”? Some sort of 1990’s love child from a ménage à trois between a Mountain, cyclocross, and road bike?

Well, the Digger has long been Nukeproof’s take on a gravel/ adventure/ drop-bar bike that goes off-road. What started during an (slightly) intoxicated conversation with Sam Hill in an Italian town, has ended up as a cult product in our range.

The Nukeproof Digger offers something slightly different to some of the “true gravel bikes” in the market, it is designed and spec’ed with the soul of a mountain bike. Slightly more gravity-focused geometry, wide bars, dropper posts, and 1x drivetrain. The New Digger has been totally redesigned, more confidence-inspiring on technical descents and to be more versatile on long adventures.

The 6061-T6 frame has been completely redesigned, all-new tube profiles have been engineered to make the Digger stronger to ensure reliability on those backcountry epics. The frame is 2 degrees slacker in the head angle and reach is increased by 20mm across all sizes. This allows for shorter stems to improve rider confidence and control in the corners (and keep it more MTB). The frame is also designed around fitting an aggressive 200-45c tyre and still has 7mm of clearance for even the filthiest of rides.

Nukeproof has also reengineered the fork to use T800 UD carbon, this offers a much stiffer and direct ride again enhancing the handling, whilst also soothing out trail chatter. The seat posts are also designed to be shorter allowing for longer dropper posts (the Digger now takes a 31.6mm dropper so benefiting from a huge variety of MTB droppers available if fitting post-purchase)

Increased usability for adventure was a key factor in the re-design. Nukeproof has engineered in Pannier & rack mounts, gear accessories mounts, fork bag mounting points, x2 water bottle mounts and mud guard/ fender points all help make the Digger ready for any multi-day/ week adventure.

So in summary, what is new about the Digger? Everything.

Key Features:
  • The all-new frame is manufactured from hydroformed 6060-T6 Triple Butted aluminium, light yet strong and stiff yet compliant in the right areas.
  • Lightweight high modulus T700 HM-UD carbon fork with a tapered steerer ensures compliance over rough terrain and lateral stiffness in the corners.
  • Shorter seat tubes designed for internally routed Dropper seatposts for ultimate confidence when the trails get technical.
  • User-friendly internal cable routing with anti-rattle foam for a clean look.
  • Plenty of mud clearance and a rear triangle that allows up to 700cx45c or 650bx47c tyres.
  • 1x Specific for modern gravel/adventure drive trains.
  • SRAM UDH Gear Hanger.
  • 12x100mm front and 12x142mm rear bolt through for stiffness.
  • Pannier Mounts for commuting or bringing your gear for overnight adventure rides.
  • Fender Mounts.
  • Gear accessory mount on top of top tube.
  • Threaded 68mm Bottom Bracket.
  • 3D Contoured Rubber frame protection for chain stay.
  • Max chainring size is 40T (38T Oval)
  • Flat Mount Brake Mounts

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.
