    Lightweight Mechanical Formed 6061-T6 Aluminium  Frame

    A lightweight 6061-T6 aluminium frame provides a bombproof chassis for trail centre assaults with great upgrade potential for fitting a chainguide thanks to the ISCG tabs.

    Our aggressive trail geometry has been designed around 27.5” (650b) wheels and a 120mm travel fork; a short headtube and low bottom bracket keep the centre of gravity low to provide improved handling whilst the larger wheel size offers improved performance and handling.

    Industry Review

    Vitus Bikes Nucleus 275 VR Hardtail Bike 2016
    Score: 4 / 5

    A competent, fun and surprisingly capable trail muncher with no significant weaknesses thanks to its air-sprung fork.
