Vitus Escarpe 29 CRX: The right bike for any job
For the big ups and the big downs, the all-day adventures and after work hot laps, the Vitus Escarpe 29 CRX trail bike is the perfect tool for any job. Have room in your life for just one bike but want to ride ALL the trails? You're looking at the right bike.
With a full-carbon T800 frame built on a Horst-link suspension platform, the Escarpe 29 balances pedaling efficiency with downhill capability. Special attention has been paid to eliminating pedal-bob on the climbs and short 440mm chainstays pair with a smartly designed suspension kinematic to make the Escarpe 29 feel flickable and spry on descents.
Balance is the driving idea behind the Escarpe 29 — it’s a trail bike that harnesses balanced geometry and a primo component package to be capable just about anywhere you’d want to take it. The 29-inch wheel setup and 150mm/140mm suspension platform emphasizes traction and is smooth like butter on demanding trails. It’s a bike that’ll meet your limits and help push you beyond.
An adjustable flip chip allows you to raise or lower the bottom bracket by 6mm and increase or decrease the head angle, giving you the power to customize the setup to best suit how and where you ride. Rounding out the Escarpe 29 CRX is a Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain and powerful Shimano XT 4-piston hydraulic brakes.
It’s an uncompromising trail bike that’ll go up, down and everywhere in between.
