Vitus Bikes Rapide II Hardtail Bike

Keep the pedal to the metal and your eyes on the prize…

Designed by Vitus Bikes and brought to you by Chainreactioncycles.com, all bikes in the Vitus Rapide range feature a custom-moulded high-modulus UD carbon frame and have been developed with competitive XC and marathon racing in mind.

For the serious amateur or weekend warrior, the Vitus Rapide II shares the same great frame as its flagship sibling but with a more affordable components package.

Custom-moulded T700 HM-UD carbon frame – 1.4kg frame weight

Our custom-moulded high-modulus monocoque carbon frame offers lightweight performance and a responsive ride whilst exceeding CE EN14766 safety standards. Featuring an oversized headtube and bottom bracket for unsurpassed stiffness and power transfer with replaceable dropouts as standard.

The Rockshox Reba RL Solo Air fork features a 15mm Maxle Lite thru-axle for ultimate stiffness and flawless tracking through corners. The fork delivers 100mm of silky smooth travel and a lock-out mode for fire-road climbs and sprints to the finish line.

SRAM Groupset

A full SRAM X9 groupset featuring a 2x10 transmission combines lightweight performance and crisp, positive shifting with a wide gear range for XC race duties.

Avid Elixir 5 hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors provide powerful braking in all conditions ensuring maximum confidence and control.

Easton Wheelset & Finishing Kit

A lightweight Easton XC wheelset will handle the rigours of XC racing and offers snappy accelerations with every stroke of the pedal. Maxxis Aspen tyres maintain traction in all but the worst conditions ensuring maximum confidence and surefooted handling. Easton EA50 flat bars, stem and seatpost offer the ideal blend of light weight and strength making the Rapide II a serious contender for podium glory.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by did so much research to find a great deal...and this is! very happy with this bike. for me the weight of the bike was important as i use it on road and this bike fly's. the bike arrived to me in Gibraltar in just over a week which was brilliant as i thought it would take longer. the ride is very smooth and the only problem i had was the bottom bracket worked loose. perhaps a slight design fault as the previous review says the same but this is easily fixed with a spacer. overall im very happy with this bike compared to other options for the same price range im glad i went for it. 10 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by took a chance, it paid off after waiting 11 days for this to arrive, bad crc, i eagerly removed it from the packaging and set it up. weave on the frame is a little bit hit and miss, although i'm not sure if all frames are like that, although resin is fine. the bar combination looks weird but rides very well, forks are buttery from the off and as a replacement for my cube pro the vitus is far better. it really does take a lot of the sting out of the trails at places like llandegla and gisburn forrest and my times on strava have leapt forward. the bike rides so light and getting air is sometimes unexpected. although fun. i took a gamble with this bike as i've never read a review , but its paid off big time. apart from the long wait, oh and the bottom bracket working loose i'm extremely pleased. 15 October 2013
