black, 19" - 2015 Nucleus 260 HT Mountain Bike: Ready to step up to the challenge of off road riding? Meet the Nucleus range of trail centre inspired hardtails; the perfect introduction to proper mountain biking with a lightweight aluminium frame and durable components package; the Vitus Nucleus 260 presents great value for money! Lightweight Mechanical Formed 6061-T6 Aluminium Frame & Suntour XCT Fork A lightweight 6061-T6 aluminium frame provides a bombproof chassis for trail centre assaults with great upgrade potential for fitting a chainguide thanks to the ISCG tabs. Our aggressive trail geometry has been designed around 26" wheels and a 100mm travel fork; a short headtube and low bottom bracket keep the centre of gravity low to provide improved handling whilst the larger wheel size offers improved performance and handling. Up front the Suntour XCT forks provide 100mm of coil sprung travel with pre-load adjustment. Shimano & Suntour Groupset Shimano shifters and derailleurs provide slick performance at entry level pricing; the Suntour XCC triple chainset will provide a wide range of gears that will cope with any ascent the trails can throw at you. Vitus Wheelset & Finishing Kit Vitus provides the wheels and finishing kit for the Nucleus range of bikes. The Nucleus 260 features Vitus alloy disc hubs on Jalco DM25 alloy rims. Continental Mountain King/X-King tyres provide sure footed handling and low rolling resistance.
