“It makes me want to race some World Cups again” (Sam Hill)
With racing in its DNA, Nukeproof designed this ride with their engineers as a concept to test several progression curve theories at once. However, in turning the theory into reality, Nukeproof created something much better than expected, and the prototype won on its international debut at Crankworx festival’s Garbanzo Downhill race with Sam Hill.
This full-suspension mountain bike features a hydroformed and triple-butted aluminium frameset, which makes it more than ready to tackle all the intensity that's associated with racing. Nukeproof has also equipped this model with RockShox Boxxer Ultimate forks and a RockShox Super Deluxe Coil Ultimate DH RC rear shock. This means that you'll benefit from its incredible shock absorption and control as you blast across rock gardens, tree roots and debris at speed. Coming complete with a SRAM drivetrain and Mavic Deemax DH 29" wheelset, this is a great choice of upgrade for podium-topping performance.
It is not uncommon for different world cup riders to want a slightly different characteristic to one another depending on factors such as their riding style and whether they run flat pedals or not. The DISSENT takes this into account with an adjustable main pivot flip chip, designed to essentially work like a bottomless token for a coil shock. The DISSENT Frame now offers riders the choice of 4 main pivot positions, which alter how progressive the suspension is. Cleverly the geometry and travel do not change between positions. Note: The sag difference between each setting is around 1% so you should not need a different spring rate.
The Main pivot flip chips are fast and simple to change and offer a tailored factory set up for every rider!
Further custom tuning can be done via Nukeproof's new 3 position adjustable chainstay features interchangeable dropout inserts. The chainstay flip chips allow you to alter the wheelbase by 5-10mm depending on the type of track you’re riding, your height or riding style.
The combination of frame adaptability, a custom hydroformed 6061 aluminium tubeset, a confidence inspiring 63-degree head angle and 200mm of travel via Nukeproof's new Dissent platform make this bike the privateers dream. The centrally-positioned shock and linkage system ensure optimum handling while other features include a true 1.5” head tube, ISCG 05 mounts and a 157mm x 12mm rear axle to keep things stable at the rear.
