The E-Sommet 29 VRX features an alloy frame equipped with a Shimano STEPS electric motor drive, long-travel RockShox suspension, a Shimano XT 1×12-Speed mechanical groupset and it rolls upon a ‘Mullet’ wheel platform. The ideal Enduro E-Bike for racing, bike park riding and all-mountain adventures, this bike offers an efficient, agile and comfortable all-day riding experience for trail-riding anywhere on Earth. Its electric motor drive provides a pedal-assisted push to help you climb steep hills and enables you to ride farther and with more energy in reserve for more fun on the descent. Additionally, it features a mixed-wheel platform with a 29″ front and 27.5″ rear wheel, giving the perfect balance of high-speed control, straight-line speed and all-terrain agility. Vitus has also fitted it with Tubeless Ready Nukeproof Horizon V2 race wheels wrapped in ultra-reliable, high-grip Maxxis Assegai and High Roller II tyres. Long-Travel Full Suspension Electric Enduro Bike The Vitus E-Sommet VRX Mountain Bike has all the trail-shredding performance and longer travel of a big-hitting 170mm Enduro bike, with a Shimano motor under the hood that kills the climbs and extends access to the most technical tracks. Ideal for Enduro Racing and All-Mountain Adventures Experience the rush – the brief snapshots that flood your senses and place you deep in the zone. 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 run. The rush that pushes you to explore your limits without overstepping the mark. Miss the last uplift? Doesn’t matter. The smooth EP8 drive unit will soon have you back at the trailhead. This is for the full-face thrill-seekers and the diehards. This is why you do it. Shimano STEPS Electric Motor Drive and ‘Mullet’ Wheel Platform The E-Sommet VRX has been developed to run a mullet wheel setup. A 27.5” rear wheel gives you more clearance over the back 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, and it’s easier to manual. The stability of the full aluminium frame with a seamlessly integrated battery is rock solid, so you won’t be taking just any line, this is a bike for taking the best line. A bike that tracks so accurately that it rewards you with speed and time. Time to line up the next obstacle and pick your route as the trail unfolds in front of you. The powerful STEPS system, with a punchy E8036 630wh internal battery, keeps you fresh on the climbs so you can go all-in on the descents. Powerful, Agile and Versatile Enduro E-Bike The E-Sommet VRX is a bike that you sit within, not perch on top. It’s a powerful rider position that puts you firmly in control. Eagerly build your confidence on the refined berms and manicured features of a trail centre but take a step into the wild and that’s where this bike really comes alive, revelling in the unpredictability of naturally technical ground. Whether threading the needle through the challenging terrain of your favourite forest trails or dropping in on the lively descents of an e-Enduro, speed and traction come easily to the E-Sommet. It thrives in the chaos of steep and challenging trails. Bringing calm where all around there is frenzy.
