    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 chain stays 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.
