Nukeproof are pleased to launch their first ever pedal assisted bike: the Scout(er). Just like a Scout, only even more badass…

The darkest winter nights have been encouraging the darkest of thoughts. The “slog” of lapping heavy going British trails, brought on a new anger and envy at the electrical powered brethren’s. If you can’t beat them, join them?

But how you cry? Nukeproof don’t have an electrical powered bicycle market… and we still don’t. We’ve bypassed electric and gone straight to a bygone era. Please welcome our latest addition to the Nukeproof range; the Scout(er).

Designed and developed deep in the Black Country, UK. With over 3 months of tinkering, engineering and refining in the garden shed, it’s almost ready for the trails. Harnessing the power of an e-bike, but with technology from a lost generation technology, a 2-stroke 80cc engine 3bhp motor. As with a new bike, you’ve got to bring in a new standard, so we’re pleased to introduce ‘Super Mega Whopper Boost 168mm spacing (box ticked).
