2020 Nukeproof Digger – A Mountain Bikers Gravel Bike

What do you get when a MTB brand designs a gravel bike? The Nukeproof Digger, a do it all gravel bike with wide drop bars and a bomb-proof build.

Inspired by Nukeproof athletes and their desire for a do-it-all training bike with something a little extra. It’s a versatile vessel, blending “gravel bike” performance with the soul of a mountain bike. With the capacity to add panniers, bike packs and mud guards; the Digger frame is suited for everything from big adventures in the wilderness to a bike that simply makes the usual mundane commute to work more interesting.

New for 2020 is the addition of the latest gravel dedicated Shimano GRX 1x group set. Spec’d for simplicity and off-road performance with Shimano’s clutch derailleur 1x 11 speed set up (11-42t) drivetrain. The Factory Digger integrates its 120mm dropper post actuation in the Shimano brake lever to offer ultimate confidence when it gets technical on the trails. In true Mountain biker spec Nukeproof equipped the Digger with a “wider than average” drop handle bar for that off road stance.
