Add Sam Hill to the growing list of pro gravity athletes who are giving enduro racing a try. He'll be joining the fray at round one of the Enduro World series aboard a bright green NukeProof Mega, the day after he races his prototype DH bike on the steep and slippery course of the Crankworx Rotorua downhill.

There had been rumors that a carbon Nukeproof Pulse was due to make an appearance this season, but the prototypes Sam Hill and teammate Mike Jones were practicing on are full aluminum rigs. The bike appears to share the same link-driven single pivot suspension design as its predecessor, but the tubing is much less industrial looking. Where the current Pulse looks like it was constructed from I-beams meant for a high rise building, this new beast's tubing is much thinner, with a few curves thrown in for good measure. A lighter, sleeker Pulse? Yes, please.
