Nukeproof Introduces the MegaWatt RS Model 2

The MegaWatt receives the descent-focused ‘RS’ treatment intended for hard charging riders, alongside a restock of all other models.

Nukeproof Introduces the MegaWatt RS Model

Since launching the MegaWatt has started to rack up some highly prestigious, even some stage wins and a podium at the E-Enduro World Series. What is new? Honestly it’s the same award-winning Megawatt frame and Shimano EP8 drive system remain, with a few tweaks to specification and subtle mods. As well as the Factory, Elite and Comp models, Nukeproof introduce an all-new model to the line-up; the hard-hitting RS spec MegaWatt - for those that demand that little bit more. 

To celebrate the launch of the new stock of MegaWatt’s, Nukeproof sent Ant “Tony” Hale to hang with Caldwell visuals and rip on his MegaWatt. The lad from Skem is a wild character. Powered by large British bakers & a well know chicken shop he can rail his MegaWatt. Enjoy and repeat.

Like the rest of the Nukeproof “RS range”, it’s specification is dictated by how our Nukeproof-Sram Factory athletes like it, slightly overforked, so should sway towards a more gravity intended rider. +10mm on the Rockshox ZEB Ultimate forks and with the grip and durability from the Michelin DH22 tire show that this Megawatt is ready to lap the bike park, downhill track or anything else you can throw at it. The new RS now completes the line up of Mega, Giga, Reactor and Scout all finished in Black ‘n Chrome.
