The all-new Vitus Sommet is a 170mm big-hitting enduro bike that features a redesigned carbon front triangle paired with an aluminium rear end. With revamped geometry and improved suspension kinematics, the Sommet is ready to tackle the roughest trails there are, from big mountain alpine descents to steep technical enduro trails.
Vitus has straightened this bike's leverage curve and increased the progressivity to improve the small bump sensitivity and mid-stroke support to keep you in control when the trails get rough. Along with improved geometry, the new Sommet also has more seat post insertion which allows for a longer dropper post to be fitted. Basically, the Sommet is better in every way. If you want a confidence-inspiring Enduro bike that will help guide you down the roughest trails then the Sommet is for you.
The Sommet 27 CRX is a flagship model from Vitus that's ready for you to hit your trail of choice. The 27 CRX comes with 170mm of frame travel, matched with buttery smooth 170mm Fox 38 Factory GRIP2 forks paired with a Fox Float X2 Factory rear shock to keep you planted when the trails get rough. Shimano's high performance 1x12 wide range XT drivetrain provides reliable shifting for race day while the Shimano XT brakes provide ample stopping power on those long, steep descents.
Rolling on the high-performance DT Swiss EX1700 wheels and a Maxxis Assegai / Minion DHR II tubeless-ready tyre combo to provide confidence-inspiring grip. Finished with Nukeproof components and a Brand-X Ascend dropper post you’ll have the confidence take your enduro riding to the next level with the Vitus Sommet 27 CRX Mountain Bike.

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.
