Mountain biking is a sport constantly pursuing ‘more’. More speed, more control, more traction. The Giga is Nukeproof’s answer to this cry for more, with a 180mm fork and either 180 or 170mm out back (dependant on wheel size), there’s really not much more you could ask for!
Geometry that wouldn’t be out of place on a DH bike gives the Giga a surefootedness on technical terrain that is normally reserved for bikes with a triple clamp fork, but to dismiss it as a monster truck would be to miss the subtleties of the way this bike rides. Designed with Enduro racing in mind, the Giga is at home in tight technical terrain as it is smashing laps at the bike park.
The steepest seat tube angle of any Nukeproof bike gives the Giga a very comfortable seated climbing position and makes it an easy bike to spin back to the top for another lap, while the ability to change the progressivity of the rear suspension and pick between full 29 or MX wheels, mean that the Giga can be setup exactly how you like it.
