Description

NUKEPROOF MEGAWATT

Since 2009 the Nukeproof Mega has been on a journey of constant development. From iteration to iteration, small incremental improvements gradually add up to become today’s thoroughbred Enduro race bike. Bike design and technology moves fast to keep up with the evolving demands of our customers and racers. If you don’t keep up, then you get left behind.

The notable absence in the Nukeproof range has been a bike with an motor. When choosing a motor/ battery partner, Nukeproof’s top priority was to partner with the right specialist. A brand that could offer leading edge technology to help create competitive product whilst having the infrastructure in place to support customers during ownership. It’s taken a while for Nukeproof to join the e-Bike game, but the time has come and Nukeproof are proud to introduce the all new Nukeproof Megawatt.

Designed and developed from the outset alongside the latest Mega, the Megawatt retains the descending characteristics that has taken 4 Enduro World Series crowns but combines this with the latest Shimano Steps EP8 motor technology. The Megawatt Shares the race proven geometry of the Nukeproof Mega, but in an all new mixed wheel size platform. The 29” wheel up front, maximises grip and rolling efficiency whilst the 27.5” wheel out back, allows the bike to run shorter chainstays to ensure nimble handling and maximise manoeuvrability. The rear chainstays also benefit from 3d moulded chain guard to keep the frame protected and running quiet allowing you to concentrate on the trail ahead. The Megawatt is offered in Size Small through to XXL and shares Nukeproof’s “saddle offset” philosophy with the Mega. This means steeper seat angles as sizes increase, to optimise the riding position and maximise comfort and efficiency.

A custom tuned rear shock (170mm of rear travel) on all models ensures that the Megawatt is super supple of the top whilst remaining progressive and supportive through the rest of the travel. The Anti Squat too is optimised to create a bike that offers ultimate performance on the descends and then returns you back to the top efficiently for more. The new Mega also has a wide SAG range (30%-35%) to allow you; the rider, to tune the characteristics of the bike to your preferences.

The Megawatt was designed from the outset to optimise the performance of the Shimano EP8 Motor and battery. Crafted from hydroformed 6061 aluminium, the Megawatt shares some characteristics and tube shapes with its Mega sibling but features several notable differences. An all-new one-piece cast Bottom Bracket shell has been engineered to house the Shimano Steps EP8 Motor. The downtube to has been designed to maximise strength and rigidity whilst providing easy access to remove the internal battery for charging or transportation. The Megawatt is offered in three specifications; Comp, Elite or Factory, to suit your riding needs and budget. Please see individual spec’s for full details. The Factory and Elite use a 630Wh Shimano battery, whilst the Comp uses a 504Wh battery. Both battery sizes will fit in each model with a secure and easy to flip mount system in all models. All bikes include a Shimano battery charger and adaptor to allow both on bike and off the bike charging using either the Euro or UK charging cables included.

Nukeproof are proud to introducing the Megawatt: A Mega with an motor. Designed so you can maximise the amount of time spent descending by getting you back to the top faster, again and again (and again).

NUKEPROOF MEGAWATT 2022 - PRODUCT LAUNCH!

Nukeproof Megawatt 2022

Launched today! Introducing the all-new Nukeproof MegaWatt! Yes, that’s right Nukeproof have taken their World beating Mega Enduro bike and turbo-charged it with Shimano’s excellent Steps EP8 motor and today they’ve launched not one, but three new e-bikes – the Nukeproof MegaWatt 297 Comp, Elite and Factory models.

Given the huge amounts of development on E-MTB’s over the past few years and considering almost all major brands (and a lot of the smaller ones) now have a wide choice of e-mountain bikes in their range it was becoming rather noticeable that Nukeproof hadn’t yet joined the E-MTB party. Nukeproof have not brushed over this fact in their own product launch blurb, stating that they’re a brand who pride themselves on moving carefully from model iteration to model iteration making small incremental improvements as they do so.

Launched today! The Nukeproof MegaWatt is here!…

Nukeproof Megawatt 2022

Waiting until they were confident that the market had matured and that the e-bike motors and battery lives were at a point where Nukeproof were happy to begin to develop their own E-MTB’s the brand began to develop their own bikes. But where to start? For them the answer was obvious – the iconic Nukeproof Mega – their multiple Enduro World Series winning bike; they took the opportunity to develop the new MagaWatt alongside the latest iteration of the Mega, ensuring that their E-MTBs retain all of the performance capabilities of the ‘acoustic’ Mega including its fantastic bike-handling and confident ride quality thanks to its progressive gravity-focused geometry and sensitive suspension configuration.

Nukeproof wanted to ensure that they worked the very best motor and battery partner from the world of E-MTBs and were confident that the Shimano Steps drive system and in particular their latest EP8 motor is more than capable of meeting the demands of aggressive,
