Vitus Bikes Rapide 29 Hardtail Bike 2016

The all new 2016 Vitus Rapide! A dedicated and thoroughbred race proven platform, our new Rapide 29 is aimed at riders seeking a high level performance bike for XC and marathon racing.

The Ultra-Light T700 HM-UD carbon frame features refined geometry and impeccable handling characteristics optimised for 29” wheels.

The Rapide 29 features a RockShox Reba RL fork; SRAM X1 shifting with Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes; WTB wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package.

Ultra-Light HM-UD Full Carbon Frame

Our new frame features sculpted tubing for increased standover height; a short headtube and chainstays combined with a low bottom bracket create a low centre of gravity for improved handling and stability on fast sections of trail. The larger wheel size rolls over obstacles and rocks with greater efficiency allowing you to carry more speed for less effort helping to reduce rider fatigue and improve performance.

Sculpted seat and chainstays improve power transfer and rear end rigidity whilst the oversized bottom bracket area increases lateral stiffness for better acceleration by transmitting every ounce of pedalling energy through the drivetrain to the rear wheel.

Easy Assembly

When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box.

Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

  • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
  • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.
