About the Vitus Nucleus 27 VR Bike (Altus 2×9) 2020

The Nucleus has won MBR’s under £500 hardtail of the year award for the last four years running, and this new Nucleus VR is superbly engineered and kitted-out to seize that claim to fame once again.

Stylish and Reliable Performance

Although coming in at a very easy to afford price point, the Nucleus has never been an ordinary entry-level mountain bike. Vitus has equipped this model with a quality-performing component spec aboard a robust and stylish construction. This year’s version features an increased standover height and aggressive geometry for even greater handling control and playful ride characteristics than ever before.

Shimano 2×9 Drivetrain, SR Suntour Suspension, and Tektro Disc Brakes

With its modern low, long and slack geometry, this trial-tamer rolls aboard 27.5″ wheels with 120mm of SR Suntour travel at the front, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes to keep your speed in check, and a superb finishing kit from Vitus to complete the build. Powered by a Shimano 2×9 gear transmission, this efficient and agile ride blasts up the steepest hills with ease and rockets back down with control and confidence-inspiring stability. Plus, it has been designed to include internal dropper post cable routing, so you can easily fit this beneficial upgrade in the future.

Built, Tuned, and Tested

Rest assured that each bike is fully built, tested, and tuned by Wiggle’s team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition. Find out which size fits you by clicking the size chart tab.

Note: Manufacturer may reserve the right to change the specification of that listed or shown on this page.

Sitting at the Vitus range’s foundations, the Nucleus has never been an ordinary entry-level mountain bike. It features quality construction, a solid spec list, and an increased stand over height with aggressive geometry that’s designed to get your blood pumping as you hit the trails. Vitus’ number one, best-selling hardtail, the Nucleus, has won MBR’s under £500 hardtail of the year for the last four years running.

SR Suntour Suspension, 2×9 Shimano Gearing and Hydraulic Disc Brakes

With its low, long, and slack geometry, the new Nucleus 27 VR’s ride versatility is increased via 120mm of Suntour fork travel, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and large volume WTB tyres on wide rims for outstanding rolling performance and grip. Plus, it’s equipped with a reliable and precise shifting 2×9 drivetrain from Shimano, a Vitus finishing kit, and dropper post routing for easy installation of a dropper post upgrade in the future. This is a hardtail built to take your riding to the next level and does so without breaking the bank.
