Dissent Carbon: Why Compromise?

Many keen eyed downhill riders will have already spotted Nukeproof's new downhill frame on the world cup podium, at red bull hardline or on the top step at crankworx DH. Since prototypes first rolled out of the start gate at Fort william, the new Nukeproof Dissent has undergone a year of extensive testing and development by the worlds finest Downhill athletes.

Built on the highly successful Scalp and alloy dissent bikes this completely new bike is Nukeproof's first carbon downhill bike and has been purposefully built to handle the speed and demands of world class downhill racing.

Why carbon?

The decision to move to carbon allowed our engineers to have total control of the form of the bike and to tune stiffness, compliance and strength enhance the feel of the bike. While weight was not a major consideration when choosing carbon for this bike, the new frame loses almost 500g when compared to the older alloy Dissent.

Uncompromising Fit

The New dissent also offers a completely new sizing structure with 3 new frame sizes, adjustable headset reach, adjustable chainstay and the ability to run a 29" wheel front and rear or a mullet setup with a 29" wheel up front and 27.5" wheel in the rear.

  • Three Frame Sizes: NP1, NP2, NP3
  • Adjustable Headset Reach: -6mm, 0mm, +6mm
  • Adjustable Chainstay Length: -5mm, 0mm, +5mm
Suspension Performance

The new dissent also allows easy adjustment of the bike's suspension characteristics. The new dissent has three progressivity settings that can simply be adjusted on the fly without any need for sepparate flip chips.

All three settings have a high beginning leverage rate to make it super supple off the top yet offer good consistent mid-stroke support with a regressive end-troke to prevent spiking under bottom out.

The new dissent carbon adds a degree of sensitivity at the beginning of the stroke that allows riders to go up a spring rate without adding harshness and works much better with the latest generation of air shocks.

Increasing the spring rate rather than increasing compression damping is suited to fast riders as it prevents spiking associated with lot's of compression damping that can ultimately result in punctures or damaged wheels.

One frame, two wheel sizes.

The dissent carbon is offered in both 29" and 29"/27.5" mixed wheel configurations but riders also have the option to switch between configurations simply by inverting a flip chip on the rear triangle and swapping the rear wheel.

Frame Features

Extra thought has been made to the finish of the bike to ensure a quiet ride that's easy to work on.

  • Tube-in-tube internal cable routing is easy to route and prevents cable rattling.
  • In-built rubber bump stops protect the frame from damage from the fork.
  • All frames come pre-fitted with a clear protection kit to protect the paint from rub, chips, scuffs and scratches.
  • A custom durometer 3D-contoured frame protection is applied to the chainstay and seatstay to protect against chainslap.
  • A large downtube protector kit is fitted as standard to protect against rock strikes and debris.
