The 297 MX platform uses a 29"" wheel at the front and a 27.5"" at the rear, giving you the perfect balance of pace, stability, agility and control for riding anywhere on Earth. This kit optimises your Giga 290 into a custom super-enduro that ensures more front-end grip, enhanced rolling efficiency and playfulness on steep descents and technical terrain sections.
As riders, we are all guilty of the gluttonous sin; we never stop striving, never stop pushing, enough is never enough in the hunt for the ultimate. It’s a constant push for bigger, longer, rougher, and faster with ever-increasing demands on the performance and capabilities of our bike. The pursuit is endless, and the result is that the Giga is now available in an all-new 297 MX platform.
This Nukeproof Giga 297c MX kit includes everything you need* to convert a 290c Giga frame into a 297c MX bike, running a 29” front and 27.5” rear wheel. Why would you want to do that? A mixed wheel set-up uses a 29” wheel up front to maximise grip and rolling efficiency and replaces the 29” with a 27.5” wheel out back. The smaller 27.5” rear wheel ensures nimble handling and extra clearance for riders when leaning off the back of the bike (Especially on steep terrain).
No additional frame parts are needed to install the Giga MX Kit. All current Giga 290 frame parts will transfer to the MX Kit when installing as shown in the Install Guide.
Note: You will require a Boost 148mm 27.5” Rear wheel and tyre, not included. New gear cable and brake olive and barb will be required in most cases.

- Will this change the Geometry of my Giga? No. We designed the Giga as a series of parts that can be fitted together to make different configurations. As a result, the geometry remains the same. For exact geometry please reference the GEO’ chart.
- Can I fit this myself at home? Yes, using the linked Install Guide and you are a competent mechanic with the correct tools and the know-how for using them. Due to the complex nature of a full-suspension frame, there are a lot of moving parts that must be installed and assembled in the correct order. It is also imperative that the correct parts are greased, thread locked or torqued to specification. Failure to do so would void the warranty of the frame. If you do not have the know-how, then please contact your local Nukeproof dealer or skilled service centre.
