The Shimano XT drivetrain is the perfect combination of performance and durability, with the XT shadow plus rear derailleur to cancel out the chain slap, all powered by XT shifters. The 1x11 speed system is driven by a set of XT cranks, with their forged alloy arms and a 32t narrow wide chainring to reduce weight and maintain strength. All of these will ensure the classic Shimano reliable shifting and performance but keep you supported when battling the mountains.
The Escarpe is designed to be ridden fast, when riding fast you need to know you can brake. So Vitus kitted the Escarpe up with Shimano XT hydraulic brakes, with 180mm center lock rotors giving you the braking power you need no matter what the weather or terrain you're trying to defeat.
Mixing high end features, a proven construction and modern ingredients; XA Elite is the perfect agile and versatile WTS for endless trail riding adventures.
High-end agile and versatile components with ISM4D machining making the wheel lighter without compromising on strength. 25mm internal width rim with hookless profile and the ITS 4 freewheel system for faster acceleration.
Finishing the Escarpe off is a collection of own brand parts from Vitus and Nukeproof. Using a Nukeproof riser bar, a Vitus 3D forged 50mm alloy stem, 31.6mm RockShox Stealth dropper seatpost and a Vitus MTB specific saddle. A great, light-weight finishing kit to top the Escarpe off.

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.
