Nukeproof Reactor 290 ST Factory Carbon Bike (XT) 2021 - XL - Depressed Aubergine
Features and technical details
Nukeproof Reactor 290 ST Factory Carbon Bike (XT)Set up for taking on all day rides, this limited edition shorter travel option of the Reactor 290 carbon is designed to offer a more efficient and comfortable ride. With 130mm travel up front and 125mm at the rear, it climbs quickly yet still soaks up the worst that the trail has to throw at you. The light and tough full carbon frame is backed up by smooth performing Fox Factory suspension and slick-shifting Shimano XT 1x12-speed gears.Limited Edition Short Travel 29er Trail BikeCrosscountry/backcountry/upcountry/downcountry: However you define it, the Reactor ST does it all and everything in between. It just might be the most versatile bike Nukeproof has ever made. With a 130mm fork combined with 125mm of rear suspension, the Reactor ST combines the best of an enduro bike (long, low and slack) with the best of an XC Race bike (lightweight spec and efficient suspension) to create a sprightly yet seriously capable machine.Frame Construction:From concept through to design, the Kinematics, the geometry and specification; the Reactor is designed from the ground up to be the ultimate aggressive trail bike. It is at home on technical climbs, but happiest when thrashing the most technical trails you can point it at. To optimise the weight, strength and stiffness, the Reactor Carbon frame features a full UD woven carbon fibre frameset (Including chain and seat stays). It is available for 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes. These are two totally different, compromise-free frames that were designed and developed at the same time. Each frame is simply tailored around each wheel size.Speed or play: which do you value more? The manoeuvrability of 27.5” or the raw speed of a 29”? Adjustable GeometryThe Reactor ST features a 66.8° (66.3° Low) Headangle atop a 76.3° (75.8° Low) seat angle across a 460mm reach on a Medium frame. Nukeproof also offers the frame in Large and X-Large sizes. The Reactor ST frames feature the same “flip chip” design as the regular Reactor frame to adjust the geometry from “Trail” to “Rail mode”.Trail - As the name suggests, this setting is best suited for trail riding. It is for riders who get as much enjoyment from the climb as the descents.Rail - The Rail setting turns the Reactor into a corner shredder, dropping the bottom bracket 6mm and slackening the head angle by half a degree. It is there to maximise descending capabilities.Suspension DesignTo ensure the bike could climb as well as it descends, Nukeproof designed the 4 bar horst linkage to have higher levels of anti-squat for climbing gears but lower levels when you drop down the cassette. This means that the bike can behave itself on the climbs but when you get it up to speed, it turns into a trail hooligan. The combination of low anti-squat and progressive rate give ultimate small bump compliance (removes rough trail and root chatter) with good mid stroke support for...
