27.5+ creates a middle ground between two existing models: Fat 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 bike to offer the benefits, with little compromise seemed the perfect solution.
There are three models in our VICE range. The VICE 2.0 is the second in the range with a striking matte blue finish. Designed to be comparable to the Ares on spec but aimed at a rider looking for a quality mid level 27+ offering
