Expirience with the Vitus ESCARPE 290 CRX

Vitus ESCARPE 290 CRX Review You love to ride your bike on demanding single tracks? Then the Vitus Fully and you could become friends. With a flat 65 degree head tube angle and a long reach, the geometry corresponds to the current trend. When it comes to the seating position, Vitus chooses the middle ground between sporty and comfortable. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the Vitus ESCARPE 290 CRX doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build All Mountain in the same price range that are more focused on descends. Finally, here is another killer argument: in price range on demanding single tracks, the Vitus All Mountain is one of the best models in the on demanding single tracks category.
