Nukeproof Scout 290 Pro

Nukeproof Scout 290 Pro

For 2021 the Nukeproof Scout returns with its proven Hydroformed 6061 Triple-Butted Aluminium frame. Featuring a 65º head angle (66.6º when sagged), 1191mm (Large Scout 275) wheelbase and 435mm chainstays making the Scout a little corner ripping punk, excelling when pointed down trail or sending of a lip. All bikes come fitted with “trail appropriate” tyres and there is plenty of clearance for the wet dust out back (2.6” in 275 and 2.5” width in 290).  

The 2021 Scout brings models featuring the latest components, fresh colours and a whole lot more stock! Available in 3 complete build specifications and frame only in both 27.5” & 29” wheel options (No, it’s not the same frame). To meet the demands of riders looking for a seriously capable hardtail, we are proud to introduce the new “PRO” model. 

The 2020 Nukeproof Scout Pro is sold out for 2021, You can find the new model here

The Scout Pro means business with an “over-forked” (+10mm) Rockshox Lyrik Charger RC up front. Out back, Shimano’s 12 speed 10-51t SLX drivetrain allows you to winch up the steepest inclines whilst the 4 pot SLX ensure there is plenty of stopping power to hand. All models of Scout come tubeless ready, with the Pro rolling on DT Swiss 1900 wheels, wrapped in Maxxis tyres (Assegai up front and Dissector out back). Cockpit and controls are our premium Horizon range (wide bars, short stem and comfy saddle) topped with some quality Sam Hill Signature Grips. In a return to the old school, the Pro is finished in a stunning Brushed Raw aluminium.
