Nukeproof Updates Reactor Trail Bike Specs for 2021

Press Release: Nukeproof

It’s been a sensational year for the Nukeproof Reactor. After a short hiatus from the trail bike market, the Nukeproof Reactor’s launched in 2020 to accolades from media, athletes and more importantly riders.

To pigeon hole bikes into categories is always subjective and a “trail bike” can be all things to all folks. One person’s trail is another riders’ downhill track so the Reactor had to be designed to punch above riders' expectations. The platform is designed to be versatile with Nukeproof engineers blending playful yet supportive kinematics with gravity focused geometry to ensure the Reactor excels no matter what trail it is pointed down or up. From those 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 all the effort you put in and then some.


Only launched last year, the frame remains unchanged for 2021, but subtle tweaks to the specifications and improvements ensure the all the Reactor range is rolling on the latest components and performing better than ever. Fresh components from Fox, Shimano, Rockshox, Sram and Mavic, as well as the introduction of components from brands like Bike Yoke.

The Reactor is designed to perform in the wild and not the spec sheet. None of this fitting inappropriate products (such as tyres) to save grams, all bikes are trail-ready straight off the shop floor, with carbon models coming with clear frame protection as standard, just the way we would want from our own bike.

RS:


Designed as the ultimate hard-charging hooligan of a trail bike and conceived for those riders that are looking for ultimate speed and style out on the trails, the RS is slightly over-forked, featuring +10mm of travel up front over the rest of the range to excel when on the most technical and mini enduros and downhill trails.

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.

With 130mm front travel and 125mm rear travel, it's still a little trail mobster, but designed with more of an extreme XC/ epic adventure mind set.
