Nukeproof Introduces the 2021 Reactor

It’s been a sensational year for our new trail bike, the new Nukeproof Reactor has taken no time in making an impact on the trails. After a few years’ hiatus for Nukeproof from the trail bike market, the Nukeproof Reactor launched to accolades from media, athletes and more importantly our riders.

The category “trail bike” is all things to all folks. One person’s trail is another riders’ downhill track, so the Reactor had to be designed to punch above its size. The Reactor platform is truly versatile, where our engineers blended playful yet supportive suspension kinematics with gravity focused geometry to ensure that the Reactor had the heart of a hooligan and copes no matter what trail it was pointed down or up. From long days in the saddle, out exploring the wilderness to shredding your local woods, park or trail centre, no matter how technical, the Reactor will keep on rewarding your effort.

Whilst the frame remains the same, the 2021 Reactor range sees a subtle tweak to the specifications to ensure the bikes are rolling on the latest components. All new components from Fox, Shimano, Rockshox, SRAM, Mavic, as well as the introduction of the finest components we could fine from brands like Bike Yoke. Our team has taken care to spec all Reactors to perform in the wild and not just the spec sheet. None of this fitting inappropriate tires to save grams, all bikes are ready for any trail off the shop floor, with high quality enduro bearings through the range and carbon models coming with clear frame protection as standard, just the way we would want from our own bike.

Geometry and frame specs remain unchanged from the 2020 model.

2021 Nukeproof Reactor Range Details

RS

 

Designed as the ultimate hard charging little hooligan of a trail bike. For those riders that are looking for speed and style on the trails. Slightly over-forked, the RS features +10mm of travel up front over the rest of the range to cope with a little bit more of abuse on the most technical trails and mini enduro’s.  

Blending the finest Sram X01 (now 10-52t cassette), Code and Rockshox Super Deluxe/ Lyrik components with Mavic Deemax Sam Hill Signature wheels it’s the complete package. Finished with our top end Horizon components, there is nothing you need to “upgrade” before you go hunting for fun.

Pro

Responding to our customer riders demand for a higher spec aluminium frame we swapped the Pro from a carbon frame to the alloy Reactor frame to offer an awesome spec. This build is our very own “test bike” spec. using a SRAM/ RockShox combo that we use to develop our bikes in house as it’s pretty bullet proof and offers great performance! 

Also responding to popular demand, the Pro is now a RAW brushed aluminium frame and exposed carbon seat stays, it looks stunning!

ST

 

ST= Short Travel. A limited-edition model last year, introduced to the main line for 2021. Originally conceived for Sam Hill to race XC for training, the ST is just fast. 130mm front travel and 125mm rear travel, its still a little trail mobster, but designed with more of an extreme XC/ epic adventure mindset.
