Bike Check: Nukeproof-SRAM Factory Racing's Mega 297c
With the 2023 race season just around the corner, Nukeproof-SRAM Factory Racing squad is already in Maydena, Tasmania for the first round of the 2023 UCI Mountain Bike World Series. A new season brings a new stable of enduro rigs for the riders, including eight-time world champion Sam Hill.
The Nukeproof-SRAM ace wil continue to use a Mega in 2023. It's a bike Sam knows well and has used to win three Enduro World Series titles.
Based on our flagship Mega RS spec, the Nukeproof-SRAM team is running a full SRAM 23-speed AXS drivetrain and will use the Rockshox Ultimate suspension series.
Of course, Sam continues to use his own Signature Series of Nukeproof components inlcuding his version of the Horizon flat pedals. The bikes will roll on Nukeproof's top-line Horizon wheels paired with Michelin Racing tires.
New for 2023 is the addition of Topeak's frame storage solutions and bottle cage, which holds a Camelbak water bottle. Also new for 2023 is the team's lubrication and sealant sponsor, Peaty's products.
