Nukeproof has announced its new version of the Digger dropbar bike. Generally known as a mountain bike specific company building enduro sleds for riders like Sam Hill and Elliot Heap, Nukeproof has released the Digger as a bike aimed directly at mountain bikers who want a training bike that matches their riding style.

The bike comes specced with WTB Sendero 650x47C tires but the frame can clear 27.5×2.3″ or 29×2.1″ mountain tires. The frame features rack mounts, internal cable routing and dropper post routing. A removable seat stay bridge allows you to create more mud clearance or run full length mudguards.

The frame is a triple-butted, hydroformed alloy paired with with a carbon fork. It features through axles, a threaded bottom bracket and geometry that is ready for gravel/singletrack/road/training adventures.

The Digger comes in two builds, the Digger Pro and the Digger Comp. Both feature 1x drivetrains and hydraulic brakes. The Digger Pro gets a SRAM Rival 11-Speed speed build and includes a Brand X Ascend internal, 120mm dropper. The Comp version has a fixed seatpost and a SRAM Apex 11-Speed groupset.

The comp version will start at $1350 and the pro version will be available at $1700.
