Video: Sam Hill Goes Downcountry on the Nukeproof Reactor

Nov 4, 2019

Sam Hill needs no introduction, but the style and quality of riding on his doorstep in Western Australia probably does. Perth doesn’t have the huge mountain range that many would expect a World Downhill & Enduro champion to train in, but in the rolling hillside overlooking the Western Australia city of Perth is the backdrop of every one of Sam’s Downhill & Enduro World Titles. The hillsides are riddled with awesome trails carved into the red dirt and pea gravel many by Sam himself, and is the location for his education on his bikes.

This is now the playground for his Reactor.


Initially, our new trail bike, The Reactor, was described by Sam as “The mistress to my Mega”. His Nukeproof Mega was designed to do the day job, 4 Enduro World Series Titles in 3 year is well proven of its calibre. When going from point A to B in the fastest possible time on some of the most brutal stages in the world and back to the top to do it all over again it’s the best tool for his trade. But the new Nukeproof Reactor, well that’s designed a little different. Not all trails in the world are Enduro Stages and not all rides you do are races and sometimes you want to get wild on the trails or punch out that all day epic to discover something different.


The Reactor is trail focused from the outset, with geometry and suspension kinematics designed to get a lot more out of a little less. It’s playful, a bike that strains at its lead, encourage find your limits and just makes you grin. Every root, rock or lip instantly becomes a sender, it encourages you into every corner, flick the rear under braking, get your foot out as you lean it over and generally is a little hooligan of a trail bike.

To celebrate the launch of the Nukeproof Reactor, it’s only right to hand over the bike to Sam for a rip. Earlier this year we sent an “elite team” out to Perth with Tommy C of Caldwell Visuals and Aussie Photographer Matt Staggs, our little minds were blown and we hope you enjoy Sam Hill and The Reactor.

 Again with the Stupid Downcountry name.

 @endurocat: Personally, I never cared what the industry called certain types of bikes, but actually with the Enduro and Downcountry trends the kind of riding that I always did (road riding in my youth back in the 80s notwithstanding) has come more into focus, which I consider a good thing. And while the moniker is indeed kinda stupid, at least with downcountry almost everybody instantly knows what kind of riding it describes...

 @endurocat: that's like calling the downhill or cross country names stupid just because you don't like the sound of them.
  • 32 16
 @thesharkman: Actually it isn't at all the same. Downhill is riding downhill only and XC is going up and down hills/mountains. Most people ride XC. Enduro is a race format where you get timed on the downhill sections. I personally think subdividing mountainbikes into smaller categories is retarded and just pure marketing. I have a bunch of friends that like to say they ride enduro when they really just ride XC or trail riding if you prefer. Downcountry is just another retarded term and I find it to be utterly meaningless.

 @SintraFreeride: I don’t like the terms either but they are meant to describe the bikes not the riding.

You can ride a dh bike on an xc trail it’s still a dh bike.

Downcountry lets you know it’s xc oriented with slightly burlier components or geo.

Even if we don’t use dumb industry jargon we still have so many bikes...

Enduro is nothing new, just rebranded all mountain. Only referring to enduro as a race format is silly...

The idea of riding as aggressive as a bike as is warranted by your downs while still being able to climb is what all mountain and now enduro is about.

The categories are for marketing, sure, as they aren’t as important to a new rider, but the differentiations are real
  • 7 1
 @SintraFreeride: Well said.
Not sure why I dislike the term so much but I think it’s mostly because it sounds so much like something an advertising agency came up with to help sell bikes. We already have words to describe bikes and what they are meant for.

 @SintraFreeride: Enduro used to purely be a race format. These days it seems to mean that you ride a fairly heavy bike that's biased towards DH rather than the climbs and ride steep tech trails that used to be only ridden on a DH bike.
IMHO it is now a valid identifier of a mindset / style of riding AND a race format.
Same goes for Downcountry....just in almost perfect opposition to the "enduro" mindset.
  • 3 0
 @Yetimike2019: Cant decide to up or down vote LoL. No, trail is still trail. AM and Enduro ended up meaning the same thing and AM has pretty much gone to the wayside once Enduro became a recognized racing event. We don't need any new categories, XC/Trail/Enduro/DH nicely covers the range of mountain biking. If you really feel compelled we can probably make room for freeride, long travel bikes that don't have race geometry, but that's it.

 @mybaben: As for me, I always interpreted that as cross-country with a focus on the downhill parts of the trail.

Enduro on the other hand, especially these days, is not really about trail riding any more, it‘s like downhill without access to a lift.

However, what both have in common is that „down“ is a more important part than „up“.

Is it necessary to have all these categories? No, they‘re all mountainbikes.

But if somebody knows what niche they are looking for, why not make their life easier by categorizing bikes?

 Since your flag implies a deep knowledge of the local culture, I have a question for you: do you think they picked that song ad the soundtrack because the trails Sam rides are the Oz version of a highway?
  • 4 0
 @SintraFreeride: I always thought of xc riding as going along undulating terrain, enduro as riding to the top of a hill with a goal/reward of descending downhill. Sort of like back country skiing vs. Cross country skiing. Back country skis are more like dh skis, but you can use them to get to the top. Not unlike an enduro bike.
  • 2 2
 @nvranka: Do we really? If I buy a XC bike and run DH tires on it and a 120mm fork it suddenly becomes a Downcountry bike? Get the F out of here! The difference between a trail bike and an enduro bike is 20mm of travel? Get the F out of here! A bike you use to go up and down trails is a XC or if you like a trail bike. A bike you use to race enduro is a trail bike. Just look at the bikes the pros use in the EWS! If the track is hardcore they may go with 170mm forks on their 160mm bikes but then in the next round they will run their 140mm trail bike. There is no such thing as an enduro bike if you really look into it. Of course, there are differences between bikes, some can withstand more aggressive riding than others I just don't think we need to split them into XC, downcountry, trail, all mountain, enduro, super enduro, freeride and DH (did I miss any?).
  • 1 2
 @solidautomech: I don't like it because I find it to be rather snobbish like "look at me, I'm so hardcore because I ride enduro". You ride trail/XC aka mountainbike and there is nothing wrong with just saying that!

 @km79: I am not a freerider I'm a mountainbiker. I have freeridden before but I have also ridden DH, XC and trials Wink

 @Dustfarter: I know what it is meant to describe I just find it to be ridiculous and don't like the status associated with it. When people call my bike a Super Enduro or a DH bike I correct them and tell them it is just a trail bike. I also NEVER say I ride enduro only XC and DH (non race).
  • 2 3
 @gnarnaimo: When I started mountain biking we used to climb to the top of the hill to race back down. We used fully rigid or hardtails back then. We called it XC. Today I have a 180mm travel bike which I climb and descend everything, I still call it XC.

Calling a 170mm enduro bike a trail bike is ridiculous. I was fine calling them all mountain bikes, but I guess with modern geo we got modern terminology....

 @SintraFreeride: Suggesting a type of bike you ride is categorized as something is not egocentric, especially when the bike has been marketed as such.. Being repetitively condescending however can be very closely related to one feeding oneself ego. Get off your high horse.

  • 7 6
 Downcountry is anything between 100/120 and 100/160 - don’t be so modest... gravel upforked. Then trail is having too much unfortunate connotations with particular type of dirt jump line. As we know Down Country riders don’t venture into such places, not because they can’t jump for sht... ekhem... because they don’t need to! Down Country is about riding same trails on smaller bike, tiding around sletchy features and telling stories how you used to hit them on a bigger bike but not today, today! Cuz today! We are just into having fun! And into Watts... yes my Watts!

Or will they try to convince folks to what I already new, for amateur use 160 bikes are too small. You may as well have 180 front 180-190 rear... or... huge push for E-bikes.

 Heaven't heard much about this bike, but it looks like a pretty sweet package. 65.5 degree HA, 130 rear, 140 front travel. Seems to be bridging the gap between trail and all-mountain (I thought downcountry was shorter travel with slack geo, for what that's worth). I mean, Sam Hill is gonna rail anything, but this bike does look promising.

 Rewind to Gee Atherton and Mike Levy Humbled. Gee looks super smooth. Gee is Gee - one of the best off course, but Gee is also riding a DH bike. While following Levy he says at one point: I don’t know if there is any line choice going on at all. Well, on that track on Enduro Bike - no, not really.

People who say they are overbiked they have no bloody idea what they are talking about. They buy DC bikes thinking they are advanced riders on the way to become experts. They are Joeys on the way to atay Joeys. If you can’t utilize a big bike, put it into it’s pace on almost any trail, smaller bike will just make you wobble like a rag doll, feeling like you go faster while you aren’t.

As for marketing you could take Sam and make him ride an XC 29er and you’d find dummies who’d say that this is the proof how capable XC hardtails are.

I really would like to see him Killing it in a real DC XC bike 100/120mm. Yeti Sb100 Santa Cruz Blur, Intense Sniper, Oiz Tr, Top Fuel, Scott Spark 120, there are many of them. He could probably show us how to do it. But I guess they are trying to sell us all bigger bikes here. We all need a Nukeproof Reactor to be like Sam.
