The Nukeproof Giga 297 Comp Carbon Bike (Deore) features a carbon frame, a mixed wheel platform (29" Front / 27.5" Rear), long-travel RockShox suspension and a Shimano Deore 1x12 groupset with a wide-ranging cassette and hydraulic disc brakes.
The Giga 297 Comp features an ultra-strong and lightweight carbon frame, long-travel RockShox suspension and a Shimano 12-Speed groupset. This bike rolls upon a mixed wheel size setup, that consists of a 29" wheel at the front and a 27.5" at the rear. These wheels combine to offer the best of both wheel standards: fast-rolling, efficiency, agility and all-terrain control. These wheels are also wrapped in Maxxis Wide Trail Tubeless Ready tires that give you the confidence to hit larger features and tackle rougher terrain.
RockShox Suspension and Shimano Deore 12-Speed Groupset
This superbly priced high-quality enduro bike features an ultra-strong carbon frame, 180mm travel from a RockShox Domain suspension fork and a Super Deluxe Select rear shock. Ideal for steep descents and technical climbs, the Giga 297 Comp is powered onwards by a Shimano Deore 1x12-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 10-51-tooth cassette and powerful hydraulic disc brakes. All this control and power is maintained thanks to fast spinning Sun-Ringle Duroc SD37 wheels wrapped in high-grip and ultra-reliable Maxxis Tubeless Ready tires.
Gluttony – Habitual Greed or Excess
It’s a motto that athletes like Sam Hill live by. The new Nukeproof Giga is the embodiment of this idea; 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.
Supportive, Controlled and Progressive Suspension Performance
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 optimized 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 wrench.
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.
Robust and Lightweight Carbon Fiber Frameset
The Giga Frame is constructed completely from UD 700/800 Carbon fiber. This allowed Nukeproof to optimize 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 dialed 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.
RockShox Suspension and Shimano Deore 12-Speed Groupset
The Comp models feature suspension from RockShox Domain forks and a Super Deluxe Select rear shock with drive from Shimano Deore 1x12-Speed groupset with a 10-51T cassette and superb stopping power from hydraulic disc brakes. It also rolls upon Sun-Ringle Duroc SD37 wheels wrapped in high-grip and ultra-reliable Maxxis Tubeless Ready tires.
Water Bottle and Accessory Mounts and Integrated Rear Mudguard
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” tires. The frames feature a clear paint protection kit as standard with 3D contoured rubber downtube, seat and chainstay protection.
