Product Description

The Escarpe VR Suspension Bike finds the balance between fun and performance. Hosting new features and technologies for the new season ahead, the Escarpe Suspension Bike is more versatile than ever.

Strong and Light Aluminium Frame

Manufactured from hydroformed 6061-T6 aluminium to deliver a strong and lightweight aluminium frame that can handle punishing trail rides without sacrificing comfort. Designed with an updated trail geometry means the Escarpe Suspension Bike is longer and lower, with increased reach and better standover clearance for light and agile handling.

Smooth and Responsive Ride

Small bump sensitivity has been increased thanks to the incorporation of a super low friction metric shock. This combined with an upper trunnion bearing shock mount improves suspension linkage durability and creates a super smooth, supple and responsive ride. Fitted with Shimano's 1x11 SLX drivetrain, RockShox's Revelation RC fork and Deluxe RT - Trunnion shock, this aluminium suspension MTB hits above its price-point.

Boost Hubs

Keeping pace with the new market standard, the Vitus Escarpe Suspension Bike comes with Boost hubs. Featuring wider front and rear axles for increased mud clearance, wheel stiffness, strength and durability, this can only boost your performance on the trails.

Technologies:

  • Main Pivot Location: This is located in a forward position, this gives natural anti-squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 36T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback.
  • Chainstay Pivot Location: This pivot is placed in line with the chainstay eliminating any force directed to the shock linkage causing the shock to compress (pedal bob) due to chain tension. This pivot location also maximises active suspension when using the rear brake; similar to a floating brake design, without the added weight.
  • Rearward Axle Path: Because of the main pivot location the Dominer has 70mm of travel with reward axle path helping to keep your momentum over square edged hits.
  • Leverage Rate Design: The leverage rate is designed to have a falling rate to sag point then go mildly progressive. This helps the bike sit comfortably in the sag position with a stable platform. The lower shock mount moves forward with the suspension, this helps to keep a linear rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock.
