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.
