Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro Suspension Bike 2015
The Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro has gained a legendary reputation amongst trail and enduro riders for being a bike that can tackle the uphill but most importantly absolutely slay the downhill!
With a burly 6061 aluminum frame the Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro is as stiff as they come, yet can be built to a very reasonable weight.
The original Nukeprooof Mega was named to honour the brutal ‘Megavalanche’ gravity enduro race, and would make the perfect competitor too! Ridden to podium places by privateer racer Greg Callahan in the infamously tough ‘Enduro world series’ the new Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro has proven its abilities against carbon-fiber bikes at over twice the price!
The Nukeproof Mega’s confident ride comes from a fairly long wheelbase and a slack 66-degree head-angle. A fairly short top tube helps to keep rider mass towards the rear of the bike, allowing the bike to feel unfathomed by technical descents and jumps.
The first thing that strikes you about the Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro compared to the 2014 model other than the bright green paintjob is the move from 1x10 to 1x11 gearing. Sram’s 1x11 gearset’s have redefined what you can expect from a set of cogs! The lack of front derailleur means improved shift quality, reduced weight, and significantly improved reliability. The wide range 10-42T cassette gives a surprisingly usable mix of gears, with no excess and no need for more. An E13 upper chainguide increases stability in addition to the specially profiled chainring and Type 2 X0 rear mech! The Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro is built to be thrashed so sorted gearing is essential!
Rockshox, another division of Sram provide the suspension and dropper post. The market leading Pike RCT3 fork was an obvious choice, with its unrivalled performance, high levels of adjustability, and low weight. A Monarch plus shock with new Debonair damping is also a market leader, with a highly sensitive initial stroke, as well as a supportive mid/end stroke. The piggyback reservoir prevents heat build up and stops performance deteriorating on longer sections of trail. A Rockshox Reverb post is a top performer, with undefined adjustment points, and stealth routing; so no messy cables to get in the way!
The Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro comes fitted with Nukeproof wheels, which are incredibly strong yet light, and accommodate large volume Schwalbe tyres which feature aggressive tread patterns for improved grip, as well as puncture protection.
Nukeproof finishing kit such as the 50mm stem and 760mm wide bars make for a dependable cockpit, with optimal positioning for control on the trail. All in the 2015 Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro is a beast of a bike, built to nail descends and happily deal with the climbs. With a highly competitive price and a great reputation why not make the Nukeproof Mega AM 275 Pro your trail shredding companion?
