This is the much-anticipated all-carbon Nukeproof Giga, a super enduro full suspension mountain bike built for the most demanding all-mountain trails.
If you think its design looks familiar then you’re right – the Giga takes all the great downhill riding qualities from the Nukeproof Dissent downhill bike and blends them with the pedalling and climbing capability of the Enduro World Series winning platform, the Nukeproof Mega.
Take a look at the new Nukeproof Giga collection in our video:
To celebrate the launch of the Nukeproof Giga, Team CRC mechanic, Jacy Shumilak, took over our Instagram Stories and built a Nukeproof Giga live from his workshop in Canada! It was a brilliant insight into how a pro-level mechanic takes on a build like this from its component parts.
