Confidence-inspiring All-Mountain Bike

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, the Vitus Escarpe is better in every way. If you want a confidence inspiring all mountain bike that can climb as well as a trail bike and descend like an enduro bike, then the Escarpe is for you.
