Durable and Light Aluminium Frame Manufactured from hydroformed 6061-T6 aluminium to deliver a durable and light aluminium frame to handle tough trail rides without diminishing comfort. The updated trail geometry means this suspension bike is longer and lower, with increased reach and better standover clearance to improve handling. Smooth and Responsive Ride Small bump sensitivity has been increased thanks to the incorporation of a super low friction metric shock. This combined with an upper trunnion bearing shock mount improves suspension linkage durability and creates a super smooth, supple and responsive ride that offers incredible traction on the trail. SRAM’s GX Eagle 1×12 groupset delivers a lightweight performance for this high-end aluminium MTB. Paired with RockShox fork and shock, SRAM Guide disc brakes, and a Nukeproof finishing kit, the Escarpe VRX FS Bike is a high-end aluminium MTB. Boost Hubs Keeping pace with the new market standard, the Vitus Escarpe VRX FS Bike comes with Boost hubs. Featuring wider front and rear axles for increased mud clearance, wheel stiffness, strength and durability, this can only boost your performance on the trails. Features: Intended Use: All-mountain/trail Wheel Size: 27.5” Fork Travel: 150mm Rear Travel: 140mm Boost 110x15mm through front axle Boost 148x12mm through rear axle Aggressive enduro geometry (low, slack, long with short stem) Removable high direct FD mount Clearance for up to 2.6″ tyres ISCG 05-mounts for chainguide compatibility Stick on downtube and bolt on downtube protector to protect the downtube and cables from rock strikes Technologies: Main Pivot Location: This is located in a fixed high and forward position in line with a 32T chain ring position, this gives natural anti squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 1x 32T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback. Chainstay Pivot Location: This pivot is placed in line with the chainstay eliminating any force directed to the shock linkage causing the shock to compress (pedal bob) due to chain tension. This pivot location also maximises active suspension when using the rear brake; similar to a floating brake design, without the added weight. Rearward Axle Path: Because of the main pivot location, the Escarpe has 55mm of travel with a reward axle path which all helps the rider to carry momentum over rough terrain and especially square edged hits. Leverage Rate Design: The leverage rate is designed to have a falling rate to sag point then go mildly progressive. This helps the bike sit comfortably in the sag position with a stable platform. The lower shock mount moves forward with the suspension, this helps to keep a linear rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock.
