After sitting it out for a long time, Nukeproof now join the ebike game. They put a motor on the Mega and came up with the Megawatt 297 202ONE. We’ve taken the new Nukeproof eMTB for a test ride, featuring a Shimano EP8 motor, 630 Wh battery and 170 mm travel, and tell you how it performs on the trail.
You can find almost everything a mountain biker’s heart desires at Nukeproof. Their portfolio has something for every discipline, from hardtail to full-suspension to full-on downhill bikes, the British brand even offer kids and gravel bikes. Now Nukeproof have stepped into the electronic age, presenting the Megawatt 297 202ONE. Actually, development of new eMTB began over two years ago, at the same time as the new Nukeproof Mega 2021, when Shimano approached Nukeproof with the then unreleased EP8 motor. It’s hardly surprising that the design of the Megawatt 297 202ONE has a lot in common with the analogue Mega.
