Whether you’re hitting the trails, commuting or just spicing up your training ride, the updated 2020 Nukeproof Digger is the bike to help you along your way.

We spoke to the design team at Nukeproof who told us about the capabilities of the new bike:

Inspired by our athletes and their desire for a do-it-all training bike with something a little extra; it’s a versatile vessel, blending gravel bike performance with the soul of a mountain bike. With the capacity to add panniers, bike packs and mud guards, the Digger frame is suited for everything from big adventures in the wilderness to a bike that simply makes the usual mundane commute to work more interesting.

Not only does the Digger look great, but its features set it apart as a serious do-it-all adventurer.

Let’s take a closer look at the details:

  • Full carbon fork
  • Internal cable routing for dropper seat posts
  • Custom triple butted hydroformed tube set
  • Threaded bottom bracket
  • 12x142mm rear axle spacing and 15x100mm fork spacing
  • 700c or 27.5” ‘Road Plus’ compatible
  • Rack mounts
  • Removable SS bridge for proper full mudguards
