Vitus E-Sommet VR

While many brands are on their second or third versions of an electric bike, Vitus have rolled in casually with their E-Sommet, sensibly waiting for the dust to settle in the ebike world before launching theirs. They've obviously learnt plenty from the ebike frenzy as the E-Sommet looks to be a very well thought out ebike ready to do proper…

Vitus Escarpe VR 29

For 2018 the Vitus range gets an overhaul, with all the main bikes getting some updates. If the Sommet is the full enduro race machine, then the Escarpe is better described as a trail bike, but as I found out testing the previous version, it could easily play enduro if required. For this year the geometry gets a tweak, wheels…

Vitus Sentier 29 VR

At a penny short of a grand (currently just £899.99on CRC), Vitus' Sentier 29 VR sits on that price point on which mountain bikes really start to get good. It's also at this price where a decision is made about hardtail versus full suspension. Full suss rigs can be bought around this price, but the level of quality kit on…

Vitus Escarpe 29 Pro

The Vitus range has seen a bit of a revamp over the last 18 months right down to a redesigned suspension platform. Vitus say they were aiming for a perfect balance of performance and aesthetics as they tried to create their ultimate bikes based around 'simplicity, integration and modernity'. The range now includes the 155mm Sommet, and the 135mm Escarpe…

Vitus Sommet CR

This year saw Vitus announce they were ramping things up with their Sommet range, and adding a carbon frame to the mix. The Sommet had been well received, so the addition of a carbon option seems to be another good step forward. Available in two specs the all singing and dancing CRX, and what we have here, the slightly more…

Vitus Dominer DH

A race-ready DH bike for £2399.99/€2699.99? A few years ago that phrase would have been laughed at, but following in the recent tradition of well made bikes going for a song the Vitus Dominer is here to buck the old trends. What is perhaps most surprising is the spec that has been laid on, you’re not getting Fox or XTR,…

Slowing things down hard and fast is the name of the game as we put some four-pot brakes through the mill and see if they can offer the killer power they all claim.
