The Escarpe 29 AMP features an exceptional full-carbon frame that's equipped with RockShox Lyrik Ultimate suspension forks and a Deluxe Ultimate rear shock, giving you ample agility, traction and control for all-terrain and all-weather conditions.
Suited to off-piste all-mountain adventures and high-adrenaline alpine singletrack trail riding, Vitus has equipped this hardcore trail bike with a fast-shifting SRAM XO1 12-Speed groupset. This includes a SRAM Descendant carbon chainset, a wide-ranging 10-52T cassette and SRAM Code RSC hydraulic disc brakes. This drivetrain shifts through its gear range with impeccable smoothness and precision while the powerful disc brakes ensure the greatest stopping power - it’s ready to tackle any terrain with confidence and composure, anywhere on Earth. It also rolls upon Tubeless Ready Nukeproof Horizon V2 wheels wrapped in Maxxis Wide Trail (WT) Tubeless Ready tyres.
Turn it up. Right up. Redefine your trail riding and raise the bar for raw joy. The Vitus Escarpe 29 AMP Mountain Bike is full volume for when you need to go full-send. No half measures. Everything cranked up to 11. We’ve cut no corners in the build, so you can take any line on the trail. That’s not to say that things are getting out of hand here. Far from it.
The full-carbon frame is beautifully balanced, so it flows like mercury along the trail. You ride hard and fast, and the AMP keeps you on the right side of finding the limit. No surprises. The carbon chassis is married with the finest components to keep weight down, so acceleration comes easily, and climbs are less of a drag. And with soft rubber on the chainstays, the only soundtrack is the song from a happy freewheel or the shred of your tyres through dirt. Plus, your own whoopin’ and hollerin’, of course. If first back gets the beers in, there might be a few rounds on you.
Whether braking hard, pushing more power or negotiating a twisty descent, your centre of gravity is rarely constant, so key to the whole system is efficiency. To deal with the dynamic nature of trail riding, the Escarpe stays predictable and consistent so that you can stay loose. No white knuckles here.
The suspension kinematics have been enhanced compared to the previous platform, further countering the effects of pedal-bob and reducing the harshness of small bumps and trail vibrations that drain your energy and kill speed. Smooth and fast for longer. With an adjustable flip-chip, that can raise the bottom bracket by 6mm and increase the head angle, you can also customise the setup to best suit how and where you ride. Its geometry and performance are optimised throughout the size range, so whether you are S or XL, there’s no compromise on how this bike feels.
When riding trails there’s enough to think about without having to consider how the bike is going to respond to the next turn or obstacle. You should just know. It should do what you need it to. No backchat and no fight. On the Escarpe you don’t have to compensate or compromise. You don’t have to adjust your style. Just ride. Just concentrate on having fun.

First emerging as a frame builder in 1970s France, Vitus Bikes played a pivotal role in pioneering the design and manufacture of lugged and bonded aluminium frames, the most iconic being the 979, groundbreaking at the time and still prized among collectors today. In 1982 we engineered and developed the 979 Carbone, one of the very first frames to take carbon fibre technology from the aerospace industry and apply it to bikes. Their tradition of innovation continued throughout subsequent decades with frames which included the 1991 ZXI monocoque carbon frame, the spirit of which lives on in their latest generation of monocoque road bikes. Without exception, each of the bikes – from their singlespeed commuter to the high-end carbon road model – won plaudits for their ride quality, build and great value. The reviews confirmed what they knew all along, and they intend to improve on these already test-winning models as Vitus push forward with the development of this great brand of bikes. “Credit has to be due to a brand that has come back from the ashes and rather than milk the prestige of the old days, has set its sights on the biggest players on the scene.” CYCLIST magazine. Vitus bikes have been tested in many of the top cycling titles and websites across all disciplines. Their bikes have won group tests across Europe and are regarded as some of the best on the market.
