Nukeproof Scout Race Hardtail Bike 2015
As you would expect from the guys at Nukeproof the Nukeproof Scout Race is not a bike designed for dawdling down the trails, its made to be thrashed! The custom hydroformed 6061 aluminum is the perfect material for the job, it’s strong, light, and affordable. The frame of the Nukeproof Scout Race resembles more of a 4X bike than an XC, with its low standover height and short rear-end, which create the bike nimble and responsive behavior.
A super slack 66-deg head angle inspires confidence on lairy descents, something you’ll be thankful for on challenging trail rides and enduro racing. Sometimes nothing beats the simplicity of a good hardtail, but that doesn’t mean the Nukeproof Scout Race isn’t feature rich, as the bike comes with a screw through rear axle, ISCG 05 tabs, stealth dropper post routing, and a stiffness enhancing tapered steerer. The Nukeproof Scout Race is tailored for adventure and is sure to make a reliable companion on even the toughest of trail rides.
The Nukeproof Scout Race comes in a raw alloy finish, which really allows you to see the workmanship in the frame. Gearing is a mix of Shimano Deore and SLX, and with a clutch mech in place chain tension need not be a worry. WTB rims on Novatec hubs make for a great value wheelset, the rims are particularly wide, allowing the tyres to make the most of their large knobbly profile, maximizing grip and ride cushioning. Up front is a long travel (150mm) Rockshox Sektor fork, with air damping and adjustable compression and rebound settings.
Nukeproof provide their own finishing kit on the Nukeproof Scout Race, all of which is top quality and ideally suited to the bike aggressive riding style. The Nukeproof Scout Race is a top value bike that will enhance the fun factor on any off-road ride!
