Nukeproof Pulse DH PRO – CaneCreek DB 2013
The Nukeproof Pulse Pro features a pro-level component spec that’s ready to take on the rigours of World Cup competition, right out of the box.
The evolution of the hugely successful Nukeproof Scalp, the Pulse DH frame is the product of two seasons of development input from the riders and mechanics of Team CRC/Nukeproof.
Featuring an all-new custom hydroformed tubeset; refined suspension system and our new Style Fit adjustable chainstay, the Pulse Pro package adds the unparalleled performance of a Cane Creek Double Barrel/RockShox BoXXer R2C2 shock setup plus a top-end SRAM X0/X9 groupset, Avid Code brakes and quality Nukeproof finishing kit.
Custom hydroformed frame with improved Fallout Linkage suspension
At the heart of the Nukeproof Pulse Pro is our updated DH frame platform, now featuring a custom hydroformed tubeset engineered from double-welded T6 6061 aluminium.
The frame offers 210mm of rear travel via our proven three-stage Fallout Linkage, which has been refined to increase stiffness for a more stable bike and a smoother suspension feel throughout the stroke of the shock
Our new Style Fit adjustable chainstay features interchangeable dropout inserts allowing you to alter the wheelbase by 10mm depending on the type of track you’re riding, your height or riding style. The long (445mm) setting offers increased stability over fast, flowing terrain while the short (435mm) setting gives the option of improved control on steep, technical tracks.
A slack 63-degree head angle and centrally-positioned shock and linkage system ensure optimum race handling while other features include a true 1.5” head tube, ISCG 05 mounts and a 150mm x 12mm rear axle to keep things stable at the rear.
Pro-level parts package
We’ve specced the Nukeproof Pulse Pro with a no-compromise components package that delivers pro-level performance on a production bike.
Rear suspension duties are handled by the Cane Creek Double Barrel coil shock – the unit of choice for many pro DH racers featuring twin tube damping technology, four-way independent adjustability and an enviable performance reputation. RockShox BoXXer R2C2 forks up front deliver 200mm of buttery smooth travel in a lightweight, air-sprung DH fork with 20mm Maxle Lite thru-axle for optimum front-end stiffness and precision tracking even on the roughest of World Cup-level courses.
To match the capabilities of the frame and suspension the Nukeproof Pulse Pro features a full SRAM X9/X0 groupset for flawless performance and crisp shifting, time after time. The transmission setup is completed with a tough and dependable Truvativ Descendent chainset, and SRAM X0 chainguide while Avid Code hydraulic disc brakes are paired up with 200mm rotors front and rear to provide consistent, fade-free braking in all conditions.
Nukeproof finishing kit
Finishing kit on the Nukeproof Pulse Pro comes courtesy of our own tried and tested Warhead series of components. Our Nukeproof Generator wheelset offers race-light speed and bombproof durability for the fastest of courses and the hardest of hits, with Maxxis High Roller II tyres delivering confidence-inspiring grip and tenacity in all conditions.
Our Warhead headset, 760mm riser bars, Direct Mount stem and Element lock-on grips combine for a no-nonsense cockpit delivering confidence and control from first turn to finish line, while the package is rounded out with our Warhead seatpost and Nukeproof Race Pulse edition saddle.
