Introducing the new NUKEPROOF HORIZON WHEELSETS

Since the legendary carbon shelled Atom Bomb Hubs in the 1990’s through to our hugely successful Generator wheelsets, Nukeproof have always been synonymous with creating wheelsets and hubs.

Last year we launched our awesome premium tier of components: Nukeproof Horizon. This range encompasses a host of upgrade components for gravity focussed riders. Already this line has won rave reviews and features “test winners” like our Horizon Flat and CS/ Cl pedals. As with all Nukeproof products they’re tested at the highest level, Sam Hill’s Enduro World Series winning Mega 275c featured many Horizon components (not just his legendary Signature flat pedals).

 

The latest addition to the range is are our brand new Nukeproof Horizon wheelsets (as shown on our Mega 275c Factory).

Designed and developed on Ireland’s harshest trails with our riders and engineers these are a perfect upgrade for any serious mountain biker. There trail, DH and enduro ready, with all-new super durable and beautifully finished CNC 7075 aluminium Hubs with 84 points of engagement (contact point ever 4.2deg) and roll on improved EZO Japanese sealed cartridge bearings to make sure all your power is seamlessly laid down to the rear wheel.

 

Each hub and rim is laced with 28 Sandvik 302t double butted spokes and quality brass nipples. (8 spare spokes are included in each wheelset).

The super reliable and strong Horizon rim has been developed in conjunction with WTB and offers their no fuss tubeless ready system. The wider 29mm rim (internal diameter) ensuring the tyre is the perfect shape to give riders optimum grip. All wheelsets run downhill rated rims to ensure that they are tough enough for any trail, enduro or downhill track.
