WINNER OF MBR’s HARDTAIL OF THE YEAR £1000 CATEGORY 2014
Beating over 20 bikes in this year’s MBR Hardtail of The Year, the Sentier VR was chosen as winner of the £1000 category. MBR’s Danny Milner was incredibly impressed with the Sentier VR commenting that it offers “an incredible value package where every penny saved has been passed on to the customer — and that’s before you take into account the fact that CRC has reduced the price to £799.99. This bike is super fun to ride – probably THE most fun to ride out of all the bikes in our test this year and ultimately that was the most important thing for us.”
From backwoods singletrack to trail centre assaults, the Sentier range of aggressive trail hardtails have been designed with fast paced, action packed epics in mind! With a super-light triple-butted 6061-T6 aluminium frame and high performance components package, the Sentier 275 VR is one step ahead of the game!
Our super-light 6061-T6 aluminium frame has been triple-butted to reduce weight and tune the tubeset for improved handling and all round performance.
With aggressive trail geometry designed around 27.5” (650b) wheels and a 120mm travel fork the Sentier urges you to push the boundaries with surefooted confidence inspiring handling!
Suntour Raidon XC Air forks feature hydraulic Lock-Out & Rebound adjustment with 120mm of air sprung travel. A tapered alloy steerer and 32mm AL6061 stanchions present a lightweight but stiff front end for precise and responsive steering.
Shimano XT & FSA Groupset
Shimano XT shifters with XT rear and Deore front derailleurs provide flawless shifting throughout the gear range. The XT Shadow Plus clutch rear derailleur improves chain tension which reduces the chance of chain derailment.
An FSA Comet 2x10 chainset provides the driving force at the heart of the transmission.
Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear provide powerful and dependable stopping power with great modulation and lever feel.
Shimano’s lightweight WH-MT35 27.5” (650b) wheelset offers excellent performance and durability. Continental X-King tyres provide surefooted handling and low rolling resistance.
Finishing kit is supplied by Vitus with our lightweight 6061 alloy stem, bars and seatpost providing high performance components which have been colour coded to match the frame decals.
