The all-new Vitus Escarpe platform represents a new breed of bike for a new breed of rider -- long-travel muscle for when the dial turns to Gnarl, in a lightweight, pedal-friendly package that just aches to slay singletrack and crest that next rise.

At the heart of the Escarpe -- that's French for 'steep', offering a solid clue as to our inspirations and intentions -- is a hydroformed alloy frame with tapered head tube for a real-world riding blend of light weight, strength and stiffness.
