140mm Travel V-Link 27.5” Frame & Suntour Epicon TR Fork

Revised and revamped for 2014 our lightweight 6061-T6 Hydroformed multi-butted frames deliver 140mm of rear wheel travel via our Four-Bar V-Link activated suspension platform which eliminates pedal bob yet remains fully active at all times. Our aggressive trail geometry has been revised and designed to offer impeccable handling characteristics based around 27.5” (650b) wheels. A shorter headtube reduces the stack height of 27.5” wheels to provide a more aggressive stance for improved handling and control in any situation. We have increased the top tube length to enable freedom of movement over the front of the bike for improved handling and control when using shorter stems and wider bars. We have added ISCG tabs should you wish to run a chainguide and all Escarpe models are Reverb Stealth ready. All pivots run on sealed cartridge bearings to provide supple performance and low maintenance. A replaceable gear hanger comes as standard. Suspension travel is controlled by the Suntour Epicon RC air shock which offers unlimited tunability for rider preference. Suntour Epicon TR Air forks feature hydraulic Lock-Out & Rebound adjustment, 32mm Butted AL7050 stanchions, tapered alloy steerer and 15mm QLC through axle which increase front end stiffness for precise steering and tracking through rough sections of trail.

Shimano Deore & FSA Groupset

Shimano Deore shifters and derailleurs provide crisp gear selections throughout the range. The Deore Shadow Plus clutch rear derailleur improves chain tension which reduces the chance of chain derailment. An FSA Gamma Drive 2x10 chainset provides the driving force at the heart of the transmission. Shimano M935 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear provide effective and dependable stopping power.

Wheelset & Finishing Kit

A tough wheelset comprising of Formula sealed cartridge bearing disc hubs and Mavic XM 319 27.5” (650b) rims provide snappy accelerations and low rotational weight. Continental X-King tyres offer optimal grip and rolling efficiency. Finishing kit is supplied by Vitus with our lightweight 6061 alloy stem, bars and seatpost providing high performance components which have been colour coded to match the frame decals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bike Love this bike! First full suspension bike and can't be believe how good it is for the money. Had a weekend away to the Forest of Dean and it was so much more fun than my specialized rockhopper comp 29er hard tail which we also took. Great beginner bike and a good a price. 30 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by could ask for anything better for the money Fantastic value I only gave 4 stars for quality but this is been picky the tyers are a bit plasticy.with the price of tyers and what I payed it's still cheap.customer service was very helpful 09 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Could not be happier After riding 29er hard tail for a while now I decided to go for it and get a full sus bike. It took me a while to get used to a lighter front end but once I did it's a solid climber. It feels great on the downhill sections. The suspension setup is refined and I was surprised at how plush the monarchs felt. Love the wide handlebars and through axles which make the bike track so well. Component set is great, the SLX brakes in particular are superb. I was worried about the weight of the bike initially, I would have preferred a kilo or so lighter but it really isn't noticeable when your on it. I almost bought the VRS version because of this - I'm glad I didn't! Such a great setup for 1200 quid....ridiculous! 30 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Amazing bike at an amazing price!! An Enduro capable race bike with 140mm travel for under £1,200. Where can you go wrong? The Stealth dropper post hole allows you to fit a stealth Reverb dropper post and this makes the bike look magnificent and the long top tube works amazing with a short stem for the descents. The 650b wheels make the VR a ridiculously fast bike and the RockShox Sektor forks and Monarch RT shock allow the bike to fly over the bumps. The Shimano SLX/Deore & FSA Groupset finish the bike up perfectly, especially the clutch Mech and the SLX brakeset. 26 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great value, great bike and superb service crom CRC Decided to upgrade to a full sus bike and after much consideration, jumped in and ordered this bike. After 4 days it was in the box at home and once out the box only needed the handlebars fitted. Having taken it for a quick spin I couldn't be happier with my new bike. It feels planted on the front and pedal bob doesn't seem noticeable until your stood on the pedals giving it some hammering. RockShox suspension feels plush as expected, brakes feel sharp out of the box, components all meet my expectations and result in a great value bike which has been built by CRC and checked before despatch. Looking forward to getting the bike on the trails and seeing how she handles on the rough stuff. If the quick blast is anything to go by my riding is going to change direction from tracks, bridleways and cycle paths to trail centres looking for more downhill adventure and I can't wait! The good news os it seems it will be capable of riding softer stuff as well as the trail centres. Thanks CRC. 20 June 2014

You could likely fit a 2.35 however the chain stays run quite close so it would be tight.

Answer: 
Chainstay width is around 3", so to allow for suitable mud clearance I would say the largest tyre size this frame will take is a 2.4 or 2.5"

Answer: 
This frame already has a fairly slack geometry and to add additional travel to the forks would definitely have an effect on the bikes handling; for this reason it would not be recommended to increase the travel.

However this bike has very efficient linkage on the rear, making the 140mm on the front more than enough for its intended purpose.

The dial will not lock or click into place; but you should feel a small bump in the dial as you turn it to the required setting.
