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 (170 mm of rear travel) on all models ensures that the Megawatt is super supple off 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 takes 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 too 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.
Featuring entry points in the frames downtube, the frames downtube has internal routing for the dropper cable, rear brake line, SD50 wires and gearing. This ensures a more user-friendly E-Bike for general maintenance and upgrading of components.
