This Vitus Escarpe 29 VR Suspension Bike - SLX 1x11 is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
Made from hydroformed 6061-T6 aluminium to providea strong and lightweight aluminium frame that handles punishing trail rides without sacrificing comfort. The updated trail geometry means this aluminium suspension bike is longer and lower, with increased reach and better standover clearance to even better handling.
Small bump sensitivity is increased with the incorporation of a super low friction metric shock. When combined with an upper trunnion bearing shock mount, improves suspension linkage durability and creates a smooth and supple ride which offers great traction on the trail.
Keeping pace with the new market standard, the Vitus Escarpe 29 VR 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.

Main Pivot Location: This is located in a fixed high and forward position in line with a 32T chain ring position, this gives natural anti squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 1x 32T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback.
Chainstay Pivot Location: Because of the main pivot location, the Escarpe has 55mm of travel with a reward axle path which all helps the rider to carry momentum over rough terrain and especially square edged hits.
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.
