Megavalanche

July 8 - July 14


We’re excited to continue our sponsorship of this year’s Megavalanche, the most incredible mass participation gravity event in the world which takes place 8-14 July!

Beginning with a mass start at 3330 metres high on the glacier at Pic Blanc, the finish line for the iconic event is 2600 metres down in Allemont. The Megavalanche is the longest, most insane downhill race you can do.

Free Nukeproof and Vitus mountain bike demos at the Megavalanche!

Join us at the Megavalanche where we’re giving you the chance to ride more than 30 Vitus and Nukeproof demo bikes between 9am-4pm on Tuesday 9th – Friday 12th July.

This is a unique opportunity to test these incredible bikes on the enduro and downhill trails they were made for! As part of the demo event we’re including a free lift pass to enjoy the great enduro resort of Alpe d’Huez.

The finer details

The Nukeproof Models

The Nukeproof demo models include both the Mega and Scout Ranges in a selection of 27.5” and 29” wheel sizes. The Nukeproof Mega shares the same enduro inspired frame geometry as the Mega Carbon that saw Sam Hill ride to victory in the Enduro World Series in 2017 and 2018. The Scout is a do-it-all hardtail trail bike, with Nukeproof’s trademark gravity focused geometry.

The Vitus Models

The Vitus MTB line up has also won its way to numerous international podiums. Vitus are continually testing their racing pedigree as headline sponsor for the Vitus First Tracks Enduro Cup and the Vitus Gravity Enduro in Ireland. They have also made a few podiums with their new Vitus Pro Cycling Team.
