Nukeproof Neutron V2 Front Wheel
Call for availability - 551 358-1337
Completely redesigned from the ground up, the Nukeproof Horizon V2 Front Wheel delivers fast and smooth-rolling performance across every inch of the mountain.
Ready for fast-paced and aggressive trail-riding, this front wheel has gone through extensive testing to meet the demands of both Enduro and DH riders.
It features a special blend of alloy material, which produces a hardness similar to 7-series alloy, but with the ductility and yield properties of a 6-series. This gives you the best of both worlds in terms of stiffness, strength and weight.
Nukeproof has also ensured this front wheel's rim profile is the same as the rear (sold separately), the only difference is the front has a thinner sidewall for greater weight savings. One final highlight is it comes equipped with J-bend spokes, which means that tensioning and spoke replacement is as simple as possible.
Enduro ABEC 5 Bearings
After extensive testing with various brands of bearings, Nukeproof chose to use Enduro ABEC 5 bearings in this front wheel. These bearings have the “LLU/LLB” seal type, which uses two lips that make light contact in a groove to create a labyrinth where the water or dirt has a more difficult time to penetrate.
LLU seals are similar, only the contact pressure or interference fit is greater to seal better. Enduro bearings have 80% grease fill on both sides whereas most other bearings have 35% grease fill on one side.
This delivers full coverage, so there are no dry areas as well as avoiding metal on metal contact or wear. This means that the axle feels tight out of the box and after a couple of rides it will become free.
