Designed around the legendary Mega platform, the Megawatt is Nukeproof’s long travel enduro platform, but with the added assistance of a motor.
Launched in 2021, the Megawatt quickly won a number of media accolades, Including the 2022 MBUK & Bikeradar E-Bike of the Year. As with all Nukeproof products, its heritage is rooted in racing—gracing the E-Enduro World Cup podium with Sam Hill in the Tweed Valley.
The latest Megawatt receives some notable upgrades:
FRAME UPGRADES: The Megawatt frame won over riders with a blend of dialled geometry and poised suspension kinematics — none of that’s changed. But, we did make some subtle tweaks in order to improve customer experience. We’ve re-routed the brake, gear, and dropper cables through the downtube to improve routine maintenance of the frame.
All internal cables run into and through the downtube guided by secure mounting brackets. These can be accessed with ease through the battery door when the battery is removed.
ALL NEW SHIMANO STEPS EP801 DRIVE SYSTEM: The heart of the Megawatt is the all-new Shimano STEPS EP801 drive system, a highly controllable, high-performance power unit with a maximum torque of 85Nm.
The result is a quiet motor that offers a natural ride feel with smooth power delivery. The EP801 drive system’s all new display, improved heat management, and all-new wiring harness improves efficiency and results in longer ride times and improved battery life.
ALL NEW SPECIFICATIONS: The Megawatt receives the latest specification from our partner brands. The RS, Factory and Elite builds are specced with the latest SRAM AXS T-Type 12-speed groupset. All AXS models feature SRAM’s 11-52t cassette, enabling the Megawatt to climb as effortlessly as it descends. The Megawatt also benefits from T-Type’s improved shifting performance under load, ensuring smooth performance and longer chain life. All AXS drivetrains come with the new AXS POD Ultimate shifter which is ergonomically designed for comfort and performance.
