Hotlines introduced the Nukeproof Reactor to dealers at its bikes launch event last month in Manchester.
The new bike takes its name from the original 1996 trail hardtail and plugs the gap between the EWS winning Mega and trail hardtail, the Scout.
“The new Reactor has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate aggressive full-suspension trail bike, said a statement. “It is at home anywhere on the hill but happiest being thrashed through technical and varied terrain.
“Designed to be supple at the beginning of the stroke, while maintaining the ideal levels of support and anti-squat to create an efficient pedalling bike that can be ridden hard. A very different bike to the Mega but still highly capable with fun firmly in mind.”
Adjustable geometry allows ‘trail’ or ‘rail’ options via a flip chip with clearance up to 2.6in tyres. It is available in both wheel sizes, carbon or alloy over six specs.
Hotlines is currently taking pre-orders with delivery to dealers from October.
