Are you in the market for a new mountain bike? we have some absolute bargains to be had, we have some Nukeproof Dissents available in all sizes at a ridiculously cheap price of only £2000. Get in touch for more info
For our Enduro hire bikes we will be using the 2020 Nukeproof Mega 275, as used by the mountain bike legend Sam Hill.
Designed to excel on the toughest enduro tracks, the gravity focused Mega will inspire confidence on the most technical descents whilst maintaining pedalling efficiency for all-day epics in the saddle
Updated sizing for 2020, with the demands of the Enduro World Series races progressing at a rapid rate, sizing and fit have become more critical than ever. As a result, we have added a new Medium-Long size to the range for 2020. The seat tube length stays the same as the Medium, whilst the reach has grown to 452.5mm which sits exactly in the middle between a size Medium and a Large. With a total of 5 sizes now in the range (S, M, ML, L and XL), there should be a perfect size for everyone.
Tested and proven on the toughest of terrain and in the most varied conditions by Enduro World Series Winner Sam Hill, the 2020 Mega 275 sets out to tackle every ride with its trademark attitude.
As the largest dealer of Nukeproof bike in France we are using their newest addition to the downhill bike world, introducing the Nukeproof Dissent 2020.
This bike really is the real deal! We have tried and tested these bikes at the end of the 2019 season, they are amazing. As always Nukeproof have delivered the goods again!
“It makes me want to race some World Cups again!” Sam Hill
Suspension design and frame details:
The Dissent platform was originally conceived by engineers as a concept to test several progression curve theories at once. However, in turning the theory into reality, they created something much better than expected, and the prototype won on its international debut at Crankworx festival’s Garbanzo Downhill race with Sam Hill.

This summer we started to help out a new female downhill mountain biker Kerry Wilson, she previosly was a motor cross champ and has now moved over to mountain bikes.
She spent last season riding in Les Arcs, this summer she came over to Morzine to see what all the fuss was about.
She met up with Nick Gowan who runs our bike hire shop in Morzine to go for a ride and see what StartlineMTB could help her out with in terms of getting on to DH race scene. They went for a few laps on the Pleney, Nick says he was blown away at how quick she was and he thought that there is a huge amount of potential for her.
So we set about helping her service her bike and hooked her up with our brand partners at 661 protection.
She did a couple of the local mates races in Morzine and spanked everyone! She now has the bug for biking and want to do more races, off she goes and does 2 more French DH races and wins them both by a mile.
She has just competed in her 1st British National DH race in the Forest of AE, surprise surprise shes on the podium again! 2nd place this time, not bad for her 1st UK race!
Watch out for this up and coming mountain bike champ, we will not be surprised to see her on the world cup podiums in the next few seasons.
