Plus bikes are the latest progression in Mountain Biking and the Vice 3.0 is our flagship MTB bike – built with all the new features and standards in the new 27+ category. The perfect partner for a session on loose rocky Summer trails or a Winter mud fest, the Vice 3.0 can handle it all.

27.5+ creates a middle ground between two existing standards: Fat Mountain Bikes, with 26 x 3.8in – 5.0in tyres, and traditional Mountain Bikes, whose tyres generally range from 2 to 2.5in wide. Riders have come to love the additional traction and float offered by Fat Bikes, but still like the more nimble handling and speed offered by more traditional Mountain Bikes. So taking the best bits from both and creating a MTB bike to offer the benefits, with little compromise seemed the perfect solution.

\n

Plus bikes climb like a mountain goat and grab the trail like a vice on the corners and descents for a fast, playful ride. These mountain bikes are the perfect platform for the beginner or intermediate rider looking to really boost their trail-blasting abilities, while promising more advanced riders an agile bike that holds the ground like a DH rig.

\n

The Vice 3.0 features a dialled performance trail bike geometry and is built around a Custom 6061 Alloy 27+ Boost Frame with rear thru axle and tapered steerer, designed to reduce weight and enhance stiffness. The RockShox Recon RL Fork provides a smooth, comfortable ride no matter how rough the trial is. 

\n

This mountain bike features high-performance Shimano Deore 615 Hydraulic Disc Brakes which provide endless stopping power. A SRAM 12 Speed gearing provides a huge range of gears to climb the steepest of hills. WTB Trail Blazer Comp 27.5 x 2.8″ wire beaded tyres are wide and stable but also offer great handling and speed. 

\n

Our range of Mountain Bikes all include the industry-leading Reid Warranty: lifetime on frame and rigid forks, 2 years on non-consumable parts and 2 free services within the first 12 months. We also offer our Online customers a 30 Day Test Ride to guarantee you get a great deal.
