Building on the award winning platform of the Nukeproof Mega, the Megawatt is Nukeproof’s first e-bike and keeps all of the amazing ride qualities of its naturally aspirated brother, just with a little extra assistance on the ups.
Using the same suspension platform and geometry as the Mega, the Megawatt was always going to be a hit with riders, its easy going nature means anyone can get on and feel comfortable straight away. Building the bike around mixed wheels has livened up the rear end of the bike giving it a more characterful ride than many other bikes in its category.
The all aluminium frame keeps costs down, meaning Nukeproof can spec parts that are built for proper riding without breaking the bank. Micheline DH22 tyres front and rear and Sram Code RSC 4 piston brakes allow you to tackle some serious terrain while the Shimano EP8 motor gets you to the top for another lap as quickly as possible.

AnEnduro World Seriesvenue and legendary in the UK mountain bike scene as one of the most prolific and exciting mountains to ride in the UK.
