The weather was challenging to say the least the fog never really lifted and the light was terrible for the duration of the day but it made for some atmospheric shots of one of Britains premier Gravity venues, with Blaenau Ffestiniog and surrounding mountains as the perfect backdrop we put the new range of bikes through their paces and the lads had a great.
We had an awesome day and it was great getting to know the fellas properly, I look forward to working with the fellas again in the future. I’m a massive fan of the Nukeproof range, I’ve been riding a Mega AM for over a year now and it’s completely faultless, so head over to Antur and Demo some of the bikes.
Here is What Nukeproof Say
As one of the UK’s premier Gravity venues, Antur Stiniog offers a vast range of gravity trails. Based in the heart of the Snowdonia national park, North Wales, the stunning scenery is an amazing backdrop for the Gravity Centre and outdoor centres.
With a fast uplifted service and gravity focused trail network, the centre offers introductory Blue trails, through to the National level Double Black Downhill trails. This gives riders the opportunity to test their bikes and skills across various terrains and courses. The Nukeproof range is perfectly suited to Antur Stiniog’s challenging terrain. Initially, the centre will run a fleet of Nukeproof Pulse’s downhill bikes and add Mega 275 and 290 bikes through the season for the trail/ enduro racers and riders.
We’re stoked to partner with Antur Stiniog. The trail network there is awesome fun to ride, with a huge mix of trails for every ability. It’s a perfect venue to introduce more people to the gravity side of mountain biking. With so many good bikes on the market now, it’s important to find the bike that makes you feel comfortable and confident we believe the Antur Stiniog centre will fit perfectly with our riders and bikes. It’s also a great venue for us to use to test with our athletes and develop our components and bikes. We recently took Nukeproof-Mavic athlete Matti Lehikoinen and CRC-Mavic team riders Elliott Heap and Mike Jones to test their bikes ahead of the upcoming Enduro World Series and Downhill World Cup season.
