Nukeproof has updated its MegaWatt lineup for 2022, adding an “over-forked” RS model with a 180mm travel RockShox ZEB Ultimate. That’s a fork travel increase of 10mm as compared to the rest of the MegaWatt range comprising the Factory, Elite and Comp models. It tops the range, retailing at a price of $9,999.99 USD.
