It’s deal for all-mountain epics, long days in the saddle, fast enduro descents and rapid trail riding.

Improved Geometry and Suspension PerformanceThe all new Escarpe features a redesigned carbon front triangle paired with an aluminium rear end. With revamped geometry and improved suspension kinematics to ensure the Escarpe climbs efficiently on the way up and descends with playful confidence on the way back down, the Escarpe CR will take your riding to the next level. Climbs Like a Trail Bike, Descents Like an Enduro BikeVitus has 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.
