For 2012, Vitus Bikes has introduced a new suspension mountain bike called Escarpe 1. Designed with the serious trail riders in mind, this mountain bike can handle not only the cross-country loop and local trails but the Alps’ stony mountain sides, as well.
Excellent damping qualities are offered by the Escarpe 1, thanks to its Monarch RT rear shock as well as its RockShox Revelation RL Dual Air Maxle Lite 140mm fork up front. Other trail-friendly features include its SRAM X9 gearing, Avid Elixir 3 brakes, and Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires.
Pretty much any alpine terrain can be tackled by the 2012 Vitus Bikes Escarpe 1 Suspension Mountain Bike with reliable performance. Without pedals, this mountain bike weighs in at 12.74kg only, so riders can both descend and climb during all-day rides without too much hassle.
