    • Vitus Escarpe 27 CRX Mountain Bike 2021

  • Vitus Escarpe 27 CRX Mountain Bike

    The Vitus Escarpe 27 CRX features a carbon/alloy frame, Fox Factory Kashima coated suspension and a Shimano XT 1x12-Speed groupset with hydraulic disc brakes. Plus, it rolls upon DT Swiss M1700 wheels wrapped in Maxxis MaxxTerra compound tyres, which are both tubeless ready for enhanced trailing riding pace, grip and reliability. Also, this full-suspension bike is equipped with a Brand-X dropper seatpost, Nukeproof finishing kit components and is ready for riding anywhere in the mountains.

    Fox Factory Kashima Suspension Forks and Rear Shock

    This model is the flagship Escarpe 27 CRX from Vitus that's ready for you to hit your trail of choice. The 27 CRX comes with 140mm of frame travel, matched with buttery smooth 150mm Fox 36 Factory GRIP2 forks paired with a Fox Float DPS Factory rear shock to keep you planted when the trails get rough. Shimano's high performance 1x12 wide range XT drivetrain provides reliable shifting for all day epics while the Shimano XT brakes provide ample stopping power.

    DT Swiss M1700 Wheels and Maxxis MaxxTerra Tyres

    Rolling on the high-performance DT Swiss M1700 wheels and a Maxxis Assegai / Dissector tubeless ready tyre combo to provide the right balance of grip and speed. Finished with Nukeproof components and a Brand-X Ascend dropper post, you’ll have the confidence take your trail riding to the next level with the Escarpe 27 CRX.

    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

    Vitus 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 27 CRX Mountain Bike is for you.

    Easy Assembly

    When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools and plastic pedals are conveniently included in the box.

    Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

    • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for balance bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
    • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is balance bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
    • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a SMALL BOX.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a LARGE BOX.
