Matt Simmonds, Joe Smith, Lewis Buchanan and Al Bond will all ride prototype versions of the Nukeproof Pulse downhill race bike this weekend, the much-anticipated successor of the popular Scalp bike.
The product of two seasons of tweaking, tuning, testing and valuable rider input from the whole team, the Pulse is a premium performance frame which combines updated geometry and enhanced design features for a hugely improved ride dynamic, ready to take on the best in the world.
Built using T6 6061 aluminium with custom triple butted hydroformed tubing for a perfectly balanced strength to weight combination, the Pulse also boasts an adjustable chainstay option courtesy of the Nukeproof ‘Style Fit’ system. Whatever the hill throws at you, we have the weapon to match it – allowing you to alter the wheelbase by 10mm depending on the type of track you’re riding, your height or riding style (long setting = 445mm, short setting = 435mm). This bike will perform above and beyond your expectations on any terrain.
UK bike magazine Wide Open grabbed an exclusive interview with Team Manager Nigel Page on the Nukeproof Pulse during last weekend's British National Champs, which you can watch on the wideopen website now.
