Lots of wheel size options and different adjustments for configuring your Dissent just how you want it.

Nukeproof Introduces 2021 Dissent - 27, 29, and Mullet Mode Available

Downhill racing has always been our first love in the office. During a normal summer the staff generally pack off to race the IDMS (Irish Downhill Series) or the jewel in the crown the Master World Cups (part of the staff here seriously thinks we develop products just for this using our athletes and World Cups as a guise). Originally launched in 27.5” & 29” wheel size, we were stoked to see Sam Hill dust off his Dissent 290 for a recent edit for Team CRC-Nukeproof.

A few years ago, before the world went “mullet mad”, a very clever man in our team designed into the DISSENT the function to mix a 290 front triangle and a 275 rear triangle together to form a perfect geometry 29” front and 27.5” rear wheel, we called it a 297. Last year the demand to try a mixed wheel size bike came in from a certain Mr. Gas To Flat. No problem, within the day Adam Brayton was railing a Mullet’ed DISSENT and loving it!

Roll on Dissent 2021 and the 297 is in the range for you all to buy. The 275 is still available in size small, but from medium to XL now its either 297 or a full 290. 

If you don’t know much about the Dissent, its designed around the principle to be fully customized to your riding style and preference. 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 our 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 our new Dissent platform make this bike the privateer's 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.

For 2021 two specifications are on offer in 290, 297 (Medium, Large, XL) and 275 (Small), plus a frame only.
