Nukeproof Scout 290 Elite Bike 2022

Nukeproof's trail dominating hardcore hardtail is newly tweaked to deliver the most engaging, rapid ride yet. The aggressive leaning geometry found on previous Scout models has been further refined with updated seat and head tube angles as well as featuring additional touches like moulded frame protection and a handy UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger). An improved riding position and sizing combined with a low bottom bracket enhances your control in the corners

The Scout 290 has fast rolling 29" wheels and is seen here in high spec Elite build kit. 

The Scout is a fine example of the modern, versatile hardcore hardtail mountain bike - immense fun to ride and capable way beyond what you would expect from a hardtail. A hardtail will bring out the best in your riding and a Nukeproof Scout is the perfect buddy to master your local trails.
