Signa announced last week that its Nukeproof brand is now available in the U.S. Unlike Nukeproof, which is being sold through independent bicycle retailers as well as consumer-direct online , Vitus will be available exclusively online in the U.S.
Vitus will initially stock about 14 models in the U.S., including road, gravel, mountain and youth bikes. It will stock at least one e-bike, a $5,400 enduro model.
