  • Vitus Nucleus 27 VR Mountain Bike Blue

    The Vitus Nucleus is the 4x winner of the MBR magazine £500 Hardtail of the Year award. This model rolls upon 27.5" wheels and is equipped with superb components aboard a quality frame, giving you more confidence and performance than you would expect from a bike at this price-point. Plus, it features SR Suntour suspension and a Box Four 8-Speed drivetrain, making it a superb bike for XC trail riding and all-day epics at the bike park.

    Comfortable and Agile Geometry

    Don’t be fooled by the price point, the Nucleus isn’t your run of the mill entry-level mountain bike. It’s the foundation of the Vitus mountain bike range, with aggressive geometry designed to get you hooked. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. For 2021 all models now come with 1x groupsets.

    Box Four 1x Drivetrain and Tektro Disc Brakes

    The low, long, and slack geometry is coupled to 100mm of Suntour Air suspension taking care of any rough terrain you'll encounter on the trails while the Tektro M275 brakes will give you ample stopping power. For 2021 the Nucleus has received a threaded bottom bracket for increased durability and a wide range groupset thanks to the new Box Four drivetrain. A clutch activated rear mech, and a narrow wide 1x chainring up front will keep you on the trails all day.

    WTB Rims and Tyres

    Vitus' tried and tested combination of WTB tyres and rims offers superior performance and grip. Finished off with a combination of Vitus and Nukeproof components the Nucleus 29 VR has stepped up to take your riding to the next level.

    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 kids’ 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 kids’ 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.
