Nukeproof Scout 290 Expert Bike (SLX)

This modern 29er is efficient, robust, lightweight and stylish, and is armed with exceptional components so you will conquer the steepest climbs easily and confidently control the fastest descents. Its modern slack geometry, superb suspension setup and superb drivetrain rockets you up and down any mountain all day long. And, since it’s designed to be as versatile as possible, this ride blasts along singletrack trails, attacks high-altitude trails with grace and is perfect for uplift days at your local bike park.

Modern Construction for the Modern Mountain Bike Rider

Suited to everything from XC to Enduro riding, this mountain-scaler and courageous downhill dominator is ready for the steepest grades and roughest terrains. With a low bottom bracket height and slack head angle, this bike provides an exceptional balance between climbing ability and high-speed descending control. Plus, since it’s equipped with trail-smoothing Fox 36 Rhythm forks, it soaks up knocks and bumps, and fills you with confidence as you rocket down the steepest descents.

Shimano SLX 1x12 Drivetrain, 4-Pot Brakes and Maxxis DH Tyres

Powering up the steepest climbs efficiently, this ride has a Shimano SLX 1x12 drivetrain at its core to soar it to the peaks effortlessly while its Shimano SLX 4-Pot disc brakes control your descent on the way back down. Assisting its trail-carving excellence is a DT Swiss M1900 wheelset and Maxxis DH tyres, this combination rolls exceptionally with pace and grip over the most demanding terrains in the most extreme weather conditions.

Nukeproof Finishing Kit and Brand-X Ascend Dropper Seatpost

Nukeproof has completed this bike build with a quality Horizon and Neutron cockpit setup, Sam Hill Signature grips and a Brand-X Ascend dropper seatpost. Plus, it’s compatible with Boost 148mm rear hub spacing and has tyre clearance up to 2.5”, this strong, long and reliable bike will be sessioning trails for a long time.
