The Sommet 297 frame features a carbon/alloy construction and is optimised for enduro racing. It offers a sublime balance of high-speed control, exceptional pedalling efficiency and all-day riding comfort.

This big-hitting Vitus Sommet 297 Mountain Bike frame, specifically designed for a mullet wheel setup, has been enhanced to deliver stability where all around there is chaos. With volume added to the carbon front triangle, the bike feels calm and predictable with no compromise on agility.
So, whether you're flinging yourself through the most technical Enduro tape or shredding your steepest local trails you still get that unforgettable rush. 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.
As the sport of Enduro moves forward, challenging both bike and rider with more technical descents and punchy climbs, the Sommet 297 has been engineered to keep pace. Extensive work has been done to improve small bump sensitivity, smoothing out the trail to keep you firmly in control and reduce pedal bob when you need to lay down more power. There’s a flip-chip to help you refine a setup that best suits your style, internal cable routing to keep everything tidy and the frame is well protected with robust guards on the downtube and chainstays. Dial-in your perfect mullet setup by fitting a big party 29er in the front to keep the rolling momentum high and a business 27.5 at the back for traction and sharp acceleration.
The Sommet is 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. This is the perfect foundation from which to build your dream Enduro 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.
