The Sommet 297 CRS features a carbon/alloy frame and rolls upon a 29" front and 27.5" rear wheel. This off-road race bike is optimised to provide exceptional control and agility while ensuring outstanding pedalling efficiency and climbing ability.
Vitus has equipped it with 170mm-travel RockShox Zeb and Super Deluxe Select suspension - this combo soaks-up bumps and hits from the terrain and holds-on tight with unprecedented traction. A wide-ranging Shimano SLX 12-Speed groupset gives you gears for climbing steep technical climbs and powerful 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes control your momentum on the descent. It also rolls upon Tubeless Ready Nukeproof Neutron AM wheels wrapped in high-grip Maxxis Assegai and Minion DHR II tyres.
The Vitus Sommet 297 CRS Mountain Bike delivers the rush. The rush of air, the rush of trees passing you in a blur, the rush of tyres through dirt, the rush of light, the rush of sounds - the brief snapshots that flood your senses and place you deep in the zone.
And then there’s the rush that boils up inside you and 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 uplift. The rush that pushes you to explore your limits without overstepping the mark. This is for the full-face thrill-seekers and the diehards. This is why you do it.
The Sommet 297 CRS has been developed to run a mullet wheel setup. A 27.5” rear wheel 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. Plus, it’s easier to practise manuals and wheelies. With volume added to the carbon front triangle, stability is rock solid without compromising agility. It’s not a bike for taking just any line, it’s a bike for taking the best line. 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 Sommet is a bike that you sit within, not perch on top. Eagerly build your confidence on the refined berms and manicured features of a trail centre, but pedal into the wild and that’s where this bike really comes alive. Whether threading the needle through Enduro tape or dropping in on your favourite descent, speed comes easily to the Sommet. It thrives in the chaos of steep and challenging trails. Bringing calm, and fun, 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.
