Vitus Escarpe 27 Mountain Bike Frame (2022)

Vitus Escarpe 27 Mountain Bike Frame (2022) - £1,999.99

At the core of the Vitus all-mountain and trail range is the Escarpe Mountain Bike Frame. Bringing forward all that was loved from the previous Escarpe platforms, this latest version has undergone the most comprehensive development yet to deliver a ride experience that’s more controlled, efficient, predictable and stable, whatever the terrain.

Climb ahead? No problem. Technical descent inbound? You’ve got this. This performance full-carbon frameset is the perfect starting point to build your dream trail and all-mountain bike. To ride faster, to discover that perfect line, to flow effortlessly where before you tiptoed, your bike and body need to speak the same language. Thankfully the Escarpe knows exactly how to read you and the trail.

Whether braking hard, pushing more power or negotiating a twisty descent, your centre of gravity is rarely constant, so key to the whole system is efficiency. To deal with the dynamic nature of trail riding, the Escarpe stays predictable and consistent so that you can stay loose. No white knuckles here. The suspension kinematics have been enhanced compared to the previous platform, further countering the effects of pedal-bob and reducing the harshness of small bumps and trail vibrations that drain your energy and kill speed. Smoother is faster for longer.

With an adjustable flip-chip, that can raise the bottom bracket by 6mm and increase the head angle, you can also customise the setup to best suit how and where you ride. Whatsmore, geometry and performance are optimised throughout the size range, so whether you are S or XL, there’s no compromise on how this bike feels.

      Taking the award-winning Escarpe platform developed last year we have made the best better for 2022. With the addition of a carbon rear triangle we have designed the Escarpe to be the most efficient trail bike on the mountain with less weight for more miles and more fun. A full carbon front and rear triangle brings the next level of performance to the Escarpe range.
