No mountain bike offers a better fun-to-value ratio than a trail hardtail. The contemporary trail hardtail combines progressive geometry and large volume tyres and is hugely capable and ideal for winter season riding.
Without a rear shock or pivot bearings to service, a trail hardtail won’t dent your budget but enable you to keep enjoying weekend after weekend of singletrack trail riding.
The Vitus Nucleus 27 VRS is an aluminium frame hardtail with low standover, stable geometry and a 120mm suspension fork. It rolls wide 30mm internal diameter WTB wheels, with Maxxis Ardent 27x2.25” tyres, the ideal balance between rolling efficiency, ride quality and cornering grip.

Shimano’s proven Deore 1x10 drivetrain keeps it simple, durable and has the Japanese brand’s Shadow rear derailleur clutch tensioner to prevent you from dropping a chain when trails get really rowdy.
Dropper seatposts are hugely enabling on all mountain bikes, but especially trail hardtails. Allowing you to adopt a lower body position when descending, the dropper seatpost is a must-have on any mountain bike that will be surfing singletrack.
Wiggle offers a great deal where you can get the Vitus Nucleus 27 VRS hardtail, with a Brand-X 100mm dropper seatpost. But that’s not all. The bundle also includes a set of quality flat pedals, from Nukeproof.
Nukeproof’s Neutron Evo pedals are very light, at only 348g, and made from durable nylon-reinforced composite. These pedals feature ten traction pins per side and with two DU bushings and four sealed cartridge bearings per pair, durability is guaranteed.
The best foundational mountain bike descending techniques are learned by using a dropper seatpost and flat pedals. A dropper seatpost and flat pedals help riders to learn the correct technique, steering with their pedals and hips, instead of pulling on the handlebars. With the Wiggle Cyber Monday deal, you can have it all, at a very reasonable price.
