The Details

The Nukeproof Reactor features a high-quality, full UD woven carbon fibre frameset, this provides the ultimate balance of lightweight, strength and stiffness. 

 

The Reactor is a short-travel, aggressive all-mountain shredder, employing a revolutionary, progressive, kinematic suspension system that works to provide a highly rewarding, comfortable and efficient ride whether it be trail centre laps or all day enduros. Additional suspension alteration is provided by the 'flip chip' adjustable geometry feature. The flip chip offers 2 settings (Trail and Rail). The trail option is ideal for rides with changeable terrain and a mixture of climbs and descents. The rail setting drops the bottom bracket 6mm and slackens the head degree angle by half a degree to maximise descending qualities and enhance the handling of the Reactor as it flies down the track.

 

The 4 bar horst linkage has high levels of anti-squat for when you are climbing but is backed right off when you're further down the cassette. This means the Reactor is excellent at climbing at speed but also being a trail hooligan. Balanced anti-rise means that the Reactor will still squat a small amount under heavy breaking allow you to maintain your position on the bike and also apply pressure to the front tyre to obtain optimal traction.

 

  • Full-carbon frame
  • Flip-chip with trail and rail position
  • 130mm rear travel

Our Verdict

The Reactor 290 is the ultimate aggressive trail bike designed to be at home on everything from steep climbs to technical trail sections.

How do I measure my height?

With your shoes off, stand upright against a wall, with your shoulders back and legs together. Use a pencil to make a small mark on the wall above your head – make sure you hold the pencil parallel to the floor. Then measure from the floor to your mark, in centimetres or feet and inches.

 

How do I measure my inside leg length?

With your shoes off, stand upright with your back against a wall. Place a book/ruler between your legs, level with your crotch. Then measure from the floor to the top of the book/ruler, in centimetres or feet and inches (it’s easier if a friend helps).
