  • Vitus Nucleus 29 VRS Mountain Bike

    The Vitus Nucleus is the 4x winner of MBR magazine £500 Hardtail of the Year award and provides more performance and style than anything else at this price-point. This 29 VRS model rolls from trail to trail aboard 29" wheels and features a Shimano Deore 1x10-Speed groupset with an 11-46T wide-range cassette and hydraulic disc brakes. Ideal for XC riding and trail centre all-day epics, this hardtail provides a versatile and dependable performance anywhere.

    Modern Geometry and a 1x10-Speed Groupset

    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.

    SR Suntour Suspension and a Shimano Deore 1-10 Drivetrain

    The low, long, and slack geometry is coupled to 120mm of Suntour Air suspension taking care of any rough terrain you'll encounter on the trails while the disc 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 Shimano 1x10 M5100 Deore groupset. A clutch activated rear mech, and a narrow wide 1x chainring up front will keep you on the trails all day.

    Vitus and Nukeproof Finishing Kit Components

    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 VRS has stepped up to take your riding to the next level.

    Please Note: Due to volatility in the bicycle supply chain we may slightly alter the specification of the component parts supplied with this bicycle. Where this happens we have listed the alternate product in the specification table and have ensured that this is of either equivalent or superior specification to the stock component.

    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.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a SMALL BOx.
