Nukeproof Demo Day - Saturday Afternoon session

2021 Nukeproof Demo Day.

Full details yet to be confirmed.

The 2021 Nukeproof Demo Day will be a good one with a different feel to our previous demos. 

This year we will have a small group ride along with an uplift to maximise trail time and get the runs in on the awesome Hopton trails. 

Due to number constraints, we will run a morning demo and an afternoon session. Each session will have around two - two and a half hours of riding time. 

The first hour will start with an uplift to the start of the trail. No one wants to start on a climb! We will then ride a custom loop taking in the best of our red route, before finishing on a downhill back to the uplift.

We will then run the uplift for you to maximise your time getting to know the bikes and making adjustments if needed. There may also be the chance to swap bikes at this stage with other riders.

We have a small number of bikes available in each session, so please contact us for information or to book a bike.

Bikes available:

Mega 275 Elite – Medium

Mega 275 Elite – Large

Mega 290 Elite- Large

Mega 290 Elite-  XL

The Hopton Woods venue has three separate Downhill runs suitable for riders of all abilities. Trail bikes are suitable. The tracks don't have any big features, all drops/jumps are rollable. 

The trails are all natural surface, so are rooty and potentially slick when wet.

Hopton is also home to our own XC loop, this is a permanent loop, like a trail centre loop but natural surface all the way.
