Welcome to the Nucleus VR, MBR magazine £500 hardtail of the year three years running. Don’t be fooled by the price point, the Vitus Nucleus VR isn’t your run of the mill entry-level mountain bike. It’s the foundation of the Vitus mountain bike range, with aggressive geometry designed to get you hooked. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The low, long and slack geometry of the Nucleus 27 VR Hardtail is confidence inspiring. For 2020 we have upgraded the forks on the Nucleus 27 VR to Suntour XCR32 120mm Boost Air. The rest of the build includes Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, reliable Shimano 2 x 9 Altus groupset and large volume WTB tyres on WTB i30 wide rims for awesome grip. The Nucleus frame features dropper post routing, allowing you to treat your Nucleus to a nice upgrade when the time is right. The Nucleus 27 VR has been designed to let you discover the joy of mountain biking and take your riding to the next level.
