Vitus Sommet 27 CRX Mountain Bike
Sitting at the pinnacle of the Vitus Sommet range, the Sommet 27 CRX is a top-performing enduro bike that’s kitted out with the best components for superior trail riding performance. It features a carbon/alloy frame, Fox Factory Kashima suspension and a Shimano XT 12-Speed groupset with hydraulic disc brakes. This full-suspension trail-warrior is ideal for enduro racing, all-mountain epics and the toughest and roughest terrains imaginable. Plus, it rolls upon DT Swiss EX1700 wheels wrapped in Maxxis MaxxGrip and MaxxTerra tyres for outstanding pace, traction and reliability anywhere on the mountainside.
Enduro Optimised Geometry and Suspension
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.
Improved Suspension Leverage Curve and Sensitivity
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.
Fox Factory Kashima Suspension and Shimano XT 12-Speed Drivetrain
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 1×12 wide range XT drivetrain provides reliable shifting for race day while the Shimano XT brakes provide ample stopping power on those long, steep descents.
DT Swiss EX1700 Wheels and Maxxis Tubeless Ready Tyres
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.
