Vitus Escarpe 29 CRX Mountain Bike Frame

Vitus Escarpe 29 CRX Mountain Bike Frame - £1,499.99

Carbon/Alloy Trail Optimised Frameset

Vitus has engineered this bike with a redesigned carbon front triangle paired with an aluminium rear end. This trail-optimised frame with its revamped geometry and improved suspension kinematics ensure the Escarpe climbs efficiently on the way up and descends with playful confidence on the way back down and takes your riding to the next level.

Stable and Sensitive All-Mountain Suspension Performance

We have straightened the leverage curve and increased the progressivity to improve the small bump sensitivity and mid stroke support to keep you in control when the trails get rough. Along with improved geometry the new Escarpe also has improved seat post insertion which allows for a longer dropper post to be fitted as standard ensuring you get the most comfortable riding position on the way up and back down. Basically, the Escarpe CRX is better in every way. If you want a confidence inspiring all mountain bike that can climb as well as a trail bike and descend like an enduro bike, then the Vitus Escarpe is for you.
