As well as designing Enduro World Series-winning race bikes, Nukeproof also have a fine reputation for producing some of the best quality components out there.

These brand new Horizon and Neutron wheelsets look set to build on the brand’s reputation for top performing kit.

Let’s take a closer look…

Nukeproof Horizon wheelset

Designed for trail, enduro, downhill or freeride, these super-versatile wheels are perfect for most types of riding.

Lightweight durable and strong, the Horizon wheelsets are available in both 27.5” and 29” and have been built to offer maximum grip and hassle-free performance. Developed in conjunction with WTB, the wheels have an inner rim width of 29mm and use an easy to set up tubeless system. You can run any tyre width you want, right up to 2.8″ on 27.5″ wheels and 2.6″ on 29″ wheels.

Available with either black or these pimp copper hubs, all the interfaces on the lightweight hubs are CNC machined for tight tolerances and perfect alignment with spokes, providing a strong and durable wheel build. The rear freehub features a six-pawl offset construction providing a strong and dependable 84 points of engagement for immediate power transfer.

Another notable addition to the package is that each wheelset comes with a spares package including eight spare spokes and nipples included (two per side, front and rear). Tubeless valves and rim tape are preinstalled on all wheels.

Nukeproof Neutron wheelset

These Neutron wheels represent incredible value for money. A £200 tubeless-ready wheelset straight out of the box is hard to find – especially a pair of this quality. They make a perfect first upgrade.

Developed in conjunction with WTB, Neutron wheels are built for everything from trail to freeride use and incorporate a simple and effective tubeless ready system which is easy to set up, and requires no proprietary parts for a wheel repair or rebuild.

Just like the higher performance Horizon model, all interfaces on the Neutron lightweight hubs are CNC machined for tight tolerances and perfect alignment with spokes for a strong and durable wheel build. An inner rim width of 29mm allows you to run any tyre width you want, right up to 2.8″ on 27.5″ wheels and 2.6″ on 29″ wheels.

Each wheelset comes with a spares package including eight spare spokes and nipples included (two per side, front and rear). Tubeless valves and rim tape are preinstalled on all wheels.
