Designed for enduro racing as well as all-mountain and downhill action, the performance-oriented Sommet VRS FS Bike will help you climb any peak with ease before hammering back down the most technical and challenging terrain you can find. And the best part? You’ll still be fresh to do it all again!
The Sommet VRS FS Bike features an aggressive geometry and bottomless, yet efficient,suspension that helps this aluminium mountain bike feel at home on the trails, in the bike park, or at the races. The Sommet delivers an agile and reliable performance to helpyou hone your race craft and climb onto the podium. Equipped with SRAM's performance-oriented GX Eagle 12-speed groupset, SRAM Guide RE disc brakes, and DT Swiss wheelset, this Vitus Bikes Sommet VRS FS Bike is ready for action.
Vitus’ Sommet VRS FS Bike is dialled-in with an updated enduro geometry. This race-ready rig is now longer, lower, and slacker than ever before. The new 65.5° head angle, increased reach, longer wheelbase, and better standover clearance all combine to inspire confidence: giving the rider more space to move around,improving stability; helping them stay in control on the most technical of trails.
Suspension has been redesigned and increased at both ends with 170mm on thefront and 160mm on the rear. Vitus redesigned the leverage curve for thenew Trunnion shock to be more supple, supportive, and progressive than theprevious version. rear suspension small bump sensitivity has been increasedthanks to the incorporation of a super low friction Metric shock. This combinedwith the upper Trunnion bearing shock mount improves suspension linkagedurability and creates a super smooth, supple and responsive ride which offersincredible traction on the trail.
This Sommet VRS FS Bike model has Boost hubs. The wider front and rear axles for offer increased mud clearance, wheel stiffness, strength and durability.

Main Pivot Location: This is located in a fixed high and forward position in line with a 32T chain ring position, this gives natural anti squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 1x 32T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback.
Chainstay Pivot Location: This pivot is placed in line with the chainstay eliminating any force directed to the shock linkage causing the shock to compress (pedal bob) due to chain tension. This pivot location also maximises active suspension when using the rear brake; similar to a floating brake design, without the added weight.
Rearward Axle Path: Because of the main pivot location, the Sommet has 66mm of travel with a reward axle path which all helps the rider to carry momentum over rough terrain and especially over square edged hits.
Suspension Redesign: Redesigned leverage curve for the new Trunnion shock means it is more supple, supportive and progressive than the previous version. The lower shock mount still moves forward with the suspension; providing a consistent rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock.
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.
