The Giga 290 RS Carbon features a carbon frame, 180mm travel RockShox ZEB forks, a 170mm travel Super Deluxe rear shock and an electronic SRAM XO1 AXS Eagle 12-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 10-52T cassette and SRAM Code RSC hydraulic disc brakes. This long-travel full-suspension bike is ready for the most demanding mountain bike riding conditions on Earth.
It’s a motto that athletes like Sam Hill live by. The new Nukeproof Giga is the embodiment of this idea - it's designed to be the ultimate hard-hitting Super-Enduro weapon for when you just need more.
As riders, we are all guilty of the gluttonous sin; we never stop striving, never stop pushing, enough is never enough in the hunt for the ultimate. It’s a constant push for bigger, longer, rougher and faster with ever-increasing demands on the performance and capabilities of our bike. The pursuit is endless. In its first year, the Giga frames have racked up numerous test wins and media awards, plus a whole heap of silverware at the races.
Whatever the wheel size; the Giga is a seriously capable machine, with 180mm (27.5” or 29”/27.5”) or 170mm (29”) rear travel; the Giga is a monster truck of a bike that has travel in reserve for when you need it. But to pigeon-hole it as a point-and-shoot machine would be a disservice as it is so much more capable than this might suggest. Due to the way that it uses its travel; the Giga gives you the feel of a big bike, yet the versatility of a modern super-enduro bike. The Giga has a dynamic and confidence-inspiring ride to help you push your limits in all kinds of terrain. It’s equally at home at big mountain technical enduro stages of venues like La Thuile, as it is lapping the biggest lines in the Whistler bike park.
The suspension is designed to be super supple off the top, whilst being supportive in the mid-stroke and progressive throughout the rest of the travel. The anti-squat is optimised to ensure the Giga descends like a hooligan yet behaves itself on the climb back to the top for the next run.
The suspension platform is based on the same horseshoe driven linkage as Nukeproof's award-winning Dissent downhill frame, albeit now with a 2-stage main pivot flip-chip. Using an eccentric axle system, riders can alter the Kinematic progressivity so, the bike can be tailored to suit the conditions on the trail with only an 8mm Allen key.
Setting 1 = 25.5% progression
Setting 2 = 29% progression
Both settings have a super supple beginning for small bump compliance. They also both have good mid-stroke support for better cornering and pumping. Like the Dissent, the progression drops off in the end stroke to prevent mid-stroke harshness or spiking and allows more tuning options with volume spacers.
The + Progressive setting can be used to add shock progression on a coil set up just like adding a volume spacer to an air shock. The added suppleness is also good in wet and slippery conditions.
The Giga Frame is constructed completely from UD 700/800 Carbon fibre. This allowed Nukeproof to optimise the stiffness and compliance of the frame parts individually. The front triangle has been tailored for stability and precision, whilst the rear triangle was designed for compliance to help tracking and provide grip. Another bonus of the carbon rear triangle is that it has a lower un-sprung mass for ultimate suspension performance.
To ensure a perfectly dialled fit Nukeproof now offer the 297 bikes in S, M, or L sizes and the 290 bikes in M, L, XL or XXL. The frame geometry is Long, Low, Slack and Steep as it is based around their saddle offset principle, which ensures the seated riding position is tailored across all sizes, with steeper seat angles on bigger frames. The Seat tube is also designed for maximum seat post insertion to allow maximum drop
This Team replica specification is designed as the ultimate build. Spec'd with the highest performance components, the RS features RockShox ZED and Super Deluxe Ultimate suspension. The drivetrain is from SRAM’s AXS 12-Speed groupset. This features seamless electronic shifting from a wide-ranging 10-52-tooth cassette. Braking performance is from the powerful SRAM Code RSC disc brakes. The all-carbon frame rolls on Nukeproof’s award-winning Horizon V2 wheels wrapped in Michelin Wild Enduro Tubeless tyres. The RS is ready to win at the highest level of competition.
The Giga is also sculptured to fit a 750ml water bottle (carbon bottle cage included) as well as an accessory mount under the top tube for emergency trail tools. All models also feature an integrated rear mudguard and plenty of clearance for up to 2.5” tyres. The frames feature a clear paint protection kit as standard with 3D contoured rubber downtube, seat and chainstay protection.

As a result, the specification may differ from those shown in the images. Please refer to the specification table for accurate information.
