The E-Sommet 297 VR features a modern-geometry alloy frame equipped with RockShox Domain forks and Super Deluxe rear shock that offers a sublime balance of high-speed control and traction in all weather conditions. Vitus has fitted it with a Shimano STEPS E7000 electronic pedal-assisted motor drive that gives you an extra push on steep climbs while a Shimano Deore M5100 11-Speed groupset and powerful 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes give you a wide-gear range and dependable stopping power.
This bike also features a mixed-wheel platform (29" front / 27.5" rear) to ensure you experience fast all-terrain performance. It rolls upon Tubeless Ready WTB ST Light i30 rims wrapped in high-grip Maxxis Assegai Wide Trail (WT) and High Roller II 3C MaxxTerra tyres. And it’s fitted with a Brand-X Ascend dropper seatpost and a stylish Nukeproof Horizon finishing kit.
The Vitus E-Sommet VR Mountain Bike has all the trail-shredding performance and longer travel of a big-hitting 170mm Enduro bike, with a Shimano motor under the hood that kills the climbs and extends access to the most technical tracks.
Experience the rush - the brief snapshots that flood your senses and place you deep in the zone. The feeling of total control as you float from take-off to landing and rip down descents, from bike park to big mountain. The rush as you roll out at the bottom of the trail and chase one last run. The rush that pushes you to explore your limits without overstepping the mark. Miss the last uplift? Doesn’t matter. The proven E7000 drive unit will soon have you back at the trailhead.
Developed to run a mullet wheel setup, the E-Sommet VR features a 27.5” rear wheel that gives you more clearance for steep ground and is more responsive through tight corners, while a 29” wheel at the front eats up rocky terrain and keeps momentum high. You’re getting the versatility of both wheel sizes in one bike. The stability of the full aluminium frame with a seamlessly integrated battery is rock solid, so you won’t be taking just any line, this is a bike for taking the best line. This is a bike that tracks so accurately it rewards you with time. Time to line up the next obstacle and pick your route as the trail unfolds in front of you. The powerful STEPS system, with E8035 504wh internal battery, keeps you fresh on the climbs so you can go all-in on the descents.
The E-Sommet VR is a bike that you sit within, not perch on top. It’s a powerful rider position that puts you firmly in control. Eagerly build your confidence on the refined berms and manicured features of a trail centre but take a step into the wild and that’s where this bike really comes alive, revelling in the unpredictability of naturally technical ground. Whether threading the needle through the challenging terrain of your favourite forest trails or dropping in on the lively descents of an e-Enduro, speed and traction come easily to the e-Sommet. It thrives in the chaos of steep and challenging trails. Bringing calm where all around there is frenzy.

First emerging as a frame builder in 1970s France, Vitus Bikes played a pivotal role in pioneering the design and manufacture of lugged and bonded aluminium frames, the most iconic being the 979, groundbreaking at the time and still prized among collectors today. In 1982 we engineered and developed the 979 Carbone, one of the very first frames to take carbon fibre technology from the aerospace industry and apply it to bikes. Their tradition of innovation continued throughout subsequent decades with frames which included the 1991 ZXI monocoque carbon frame, the spirit of which lives on in their latest generation of monocoque road bikes. Without exception, each of the bikes – from their singlespeed commuter to the high-end carbon road model – won plaudits for their ride quality, build and great value. The reviews confirmed what they knew all along, and they intend to improve on these already test-winning models as Vitus push forward with the development of this great brand of bikes. “Credit has to be due to a brand that has come back from the ashes and rather than milk the prestige of the old days, has set its sights on the biggest players on the scene.” CYCLIST magazine. Vitus bikes have been tested in many of the top cycling titles and websites across all disciplines. Their bikes have won group tests across Europe and are regarded as some of the best on the market.
