Product Description

The Nucleus range is the entry-level mountain bike range that punches well above its price-point. Designed for progression, the Nucleus 275 VRX HT Bike is aimed at cross-country and trail riders; this entry-level aluminium MTB will help you learn the basics or hone and master your trail skills.

Updated Aluminium Frame

Because there’s always room for improvement, Vitus returned to the drawing board and came back with a brand-new alloy frame which follows the DNA and core characteristics of the Vitus Sentier. Refined with their trail-oriented geometry, the Nucleus 275 VRX HT Bike is now longer, lower and slacker than before. With revised geometry, improved stand-over clearance, ISCG tabs and internal dropper post cable routing, this entry-level aluminium MTB is like no other: it’s a bike that owes a lot to its big sibling, but more than capable of finding its own path.
