Nukeproof Megawatt 297 Elite 2022

It was only a matter of time – Nukeproof bring their MTB design expertise to the world of electric mountain bikes.

The Elite sits in the middle of the range and see's a nice jump in specification without denting the wallet as hard as the top of line factory spec. This build is certainly no slouch and is a top to bottom list of some of the best mountain bike equipment out there. 

Based around the multi-EWS winning Mega frame set the newly unleashed megawatt is an E-MTB for riders who want things fast, agile and hungry for many miles of mayhem.

For the Megawatt Nukeproof have gone with mixed wheel sizing, the large 29" wheel up front promotes fast charging speed and superior grip levels while the smaller 27.5" wheel out back keeps the bike agile and nimble through twists and turns.

Nukeproof’s race proven geometry is perfectly suited to the boost provided by the superb Shimano EP8 motor. Somehow the mad professors at Nukeproof have maintained the sleek, clean look of the Mega frame without sacrificing ride position, comfort or looks. Paired with a typical great Nukeproof build spec sheet the Megawatt is all you could possibly need for long days of mountain shredding awesomeness!
