The Nukeproof Solum Prototype frame…..
I’ve been swapping some ideas with one of the industrial designers at Nukeproof for a new 26” jump bike angle, features and geometry influenced from bmx. The guys and Nukeproof have mixed these ideas with their knowledge of the mtb industry to come up with what I can only describe as the most fun bike I’ve ever ridden.
This model was designed around 100mm forks featuring a short back end and a 22” top tube and will be available in 2 frame sizes (TBA) It’s really light and the low BB and short wheelbase allows you a bit more comfort round corners.
The guys at Nukeproof with hooked me up with one of the prototypes to try out and I’m really enjoying it. It’s great on the ramps It’s great on the quarter pipes and concrete bowls and it is really responsive for just blasting about the town.
The bike is in production stages and should be released at Eurobike in Germany in September.

I had a great time filming this edit and just cruising around.
