Introducing the Nukeproof Megawatt 297 RS alloy bike, the ultimate performer in electric bike (E-Bike) technology.
With its lightweight and durable chassis, this bike is built to conquer any terrain. It features top-of-the-line components, including RockShox Zeb Ultimate Charger-coated 170mm-travel suspension forks and a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate rear shock. The Shimano STEPS EP801 electric motor drive and SRAM's XO1 AXS T-Type electric wireless 12-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 10-52-tooth cassette provide unmatched power and precision. Equipped with SRAM Code RSC hydraulic disc brakes and Nukeproof Horizon V2 Tubeless Ready wheels wrapped in Michelin DH22 TLR all-terrain tires, the Megawatt ensures an exhilarating ride with exceptional control and performance.
The Megawatt: It's a Mega V4 with an engine, designed to maximize your descent time by quickly taking you back to the top, again and again.
The Megawatt is Nukeproof's first E-Bike, renowned for its agile handling, impressive suspension, and balanced geometry. It incorporates leading-edge Shimano STEPS EP801 electric motor drive unit technology, offering exceptional performance and reliability. Developed alongside the Mega V4, its optimized geometry, packaging, and suspension deliver outstanding descending capabilities while benefiting from the assistance of the Shimano EP801 for efficient climbs.
Mullet Wheel Standard: The Megawatt features a 29" front wheel for enhanced grip and rolling efficiency, coupled with a 27.5" rear wheel that allows shorter chainstays for agile handling and maximum maneuverability. The rear chainstays are equipped with 3D-molded chain guards for frame protection and a smooth, quiet ride on any trail.
Modern Enduro Inspired Race Geometry: With lower, longer, steeper, and slacker dimensions, our new geometry optimizes seated weight distribution. This results in steeper seat angles, especially on larger sizes, and longer reach figures for a comfortable cockpit. Shorter seat tubes maximize seat post insertion depths, and the use of short offset forks improves both climbing and descending capabilities.
Progressive, Supple and Supportive 4-Bar Horst Suspension Platform: The redesigned Mega 4-bar horst linkage ensures exceptional small bump compliance, progressive and supportive mid-stroke performance for pedaling, cornering, and pumping, and increased end-stroke leverage for fine-tuning options with volume spacers. The new kinematics provide higher anti-squat levels for climbing gears, while reducing as you drop down the cassette.Durable and Lightweight Alloy Frame with Internal Battery: Crafted from hydroformed 6061 aluminum, the Megawatt shares similarities with its Mega sibling but features unique characteristics. Its one-piece cast bottom bracket shell houses the Shimano Steps EP801 motor, and the downtube maximizes strength, rigidity, and easy access to the internal battery for charging or transportation.
Internal Frame Cable Routing: The frames downtube features entry points for internal routing of the dropper cable, rear brake lines, SD50 wires, and gearing. This user-friendly E-Bike design facilitates general maintenance and component upgrades.
