Nukeproof Scalp

Nukeproof Scalp

After riding hardtails cross-country and shunning the new Rock Shox Quadra 21R forks, my first full-suspension ride was a revelation. My mate Pete had managed to procure himself a GT LTS and I’ll never forget the sensation of being able to blast off sets of stairs like a waterfall. That was in 1994, and by then Nukeproof had already established itself as a leader of innovation in the halcyon days of early mountain biking. Fast forward to 2011 and after supplying us with quality components, they’ve just released a range of frames. This is the Scalp, their dedicated DH rig.

With such a well-respected heritage, Nukeproof are also looking to the future, establishing a Junior team to contest the World Cup circuit. Irish champions Christopher McGlinchy and Dan Sheridan are two of the first riders to enjoy the brand-new, fully built Scalp frames. Of course, these bikes feature the whole gamut of Nukeproof components; bars, headsets, seatposts, saddles and wheelsets. It’s definitely a contender, utilizing the technology and quality that has made Nukeproof famous.

The frames will be available at the end of March, until then you can see them in action under the boys on pinkbike.com and read the specs of the Scalp and Nukeproof’s two other frames on the website.
