VX8 - Frame
Top Product


Conceived, designed and made in Great Britain, Empire Cycles' VX8 is the accumulation of both its creator's passion for precision engineering, and deep-seated love of downhill mountain biking.

But while its hard-edged design and top-spec manufacture is stunning, the VX8 is no precious artifact. It has no place in a gallery. For it has been made with one fundamental purpose: to be the best downhill mountain bike on the planet.

Well balanced and slick, the VX8 - it's a revolution. And proof, if it were needed, is in the detail…

Sealed Needle Bearing

The high single pivot, which affords a square-bump-swallowing rearward axle path, utilises a matrix sealed full-complement needle bearing rather than your run-of-the-mill cartridge jobbie. This assembly is more complicated and weighs slightly more than a cartridge setup, but it absorbs five-times the load and offers an incredibly slick action. Trust us, you'll thank us for our obsessive detail.
