This frame is engineered and equipped for steep climbs, fast descents over rough terrains, all-day epics high in the mountains and takes enduro routes in its stride. Plus, it rolls upon a 148x12mm SRAM UDH Maxle Stealth rear thru-axle, is ideal for 150mm travel forks and 29" wheels with 2.5" max tyre clearance.
Vitus has engineered this frame with a redesigned carbon front triangle paired with an aluminium rear end. This trail-optimised frame with its revamped geometry and improved suspension kinematics ensure the Escarpe climbs efficiently on the way up and descends with playful confidence on the way back down and takes your riding to the next level.
Vitus straightened the leverage curve and increased the progressivity to improve the small bump sensitivity and mid-stroke support to keep you in control when the trails get rough. Along with improved geometry, the new Escarpe also has improved seat post insertion which allows for a longer dropper post to be fitted as standard ensuring you get the most comfortable riding position on the way up and back down. Basically, Escarpe CRX is better in every way. If you want a confidence-inspiring all-mountain frame that can climb as well as a trail bike and descend like an enduro bike, then the Vitus Escarpe 27 CRX Mountain Bike Frame is for you.

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.
