Sam Hill Signature Range From Nukeproof

UK brand Nukeproof were very quick to sign up Sam Hill when he left Specialized to make room for Aaron Gwinn and clearly as part of the deal Sam is working on extending his own personal brand with a range of signature components.


Not widely known in NZ, Nukeproof have a reputation of high quality products for a competitive price.

For Sam they have come up with a range that includes a saddle, seat post, direct mount stem, handlebar and grips. To fit with Sam's profile they range is suited for gravity style riding rather than trail or XC. The saddle and grips are brand new designs for Nukeproof, the other items existing items rebranded and will be available at the existing prices.

Saddle:
The Sam Hill Series signature saddle design was inspired by Sam’s own motocross saddle and was created on Sams request: It’s most obvious feature is the pleated top cover which is designed to optimise grip in wet and muddy conditions. Made from a tough, durable Lorica material, it is tear resistant with Kevlar scuff guards on the outer corners to improve abrasion resistance. It features a smaller body than any other Nukeproof saddle, measuring in at 255mm x 127mm to maximise clearance and manoeuvrability on the bike. The smaller body, reduced padding and CrN Ti alloy rail compound, improve the strength-to-weight ratio. Weighing in at just 234g it is a lightweight contender, with a heavyweight punch.

Lock-On Grips:
The Sam Hill Series Signature Grip has been custom designed to Sam’s specification. It features a soft-compound Kraton rubber which has been moulded to Sam’s preferred, thickness and circumference with Diamond texture pattern and a MX inspired half waffle to optimise grip, comfort, control and riding confidence. Featuring CNC-machined 7000-series aluminium lock-rings for wet-weather peace of mind and built in bar end plugs, the Signature Grip is both comfortable and confidence-inspiring.

Riser Bar:
Sam has always been particular about his handlebar set-up: Manufactured from high grade 7075 aluminium for strength and featuring a shot-peen finish to maximise fatigue resistance, The Sam Hill Signature Riser Bars feature a 20mm or 38mm rise, 760mm width and a 9° back-sweep/6° up-sweep, to optimise ergonomics and deliver confident handling through the roughest of terrain. Although the bars were built for the rigours of world cup level DH competition they are light enough for any kind of riding at just 298g making for a strong, comfortable, lightweight and confidence inspiring handlebar.

Inline Seat Post:
Custom 3D forged from 7075 series aluminium for optimum strength, the signature seat post consists of a one piece shaft and lower clamp section topped with a cold-forged clamp head, with both the upper and lower clamp and rail assemblies CNC-machined in critical stress areas for superior strength and fatigue resistance. The 400mm long shaft is turn finished for quality and features an elliptical internal bore to further increase the strength to weight ratio without compromising structural integrity.

  • Length: 400mm

Direct Mount Stem:
Precision CNC-machined from high-grade 7000-series aluminium, the Sam Hill Signature Series stem has been engineered for the optimum balance of light weight and stiffness without compromising structural integrity.
