Vitus Rapide CR Carbon HT Bike GX Eagle 1x12

Born fast and ready to race, the Vitus Rapide is your cross-country race rocket. The Rapide CR Carbon HT Bike is a dedicated and thoroughbred race-proven platform aimed at those seeking a high-level performance bike for cross-country and marathon racing.

Stiff and Light Carbon Frame

Built around a stiff and ultra-light T700 HM-UD carbon frame and featuring a trail-refined geometry, the Rapide CR Carbon HT Bike delivers impeccable handling characteristics and has been optimised for 29” wheels. Complete with SRAM's race-ready GX Eagle drivetrain, SRAM Level T hydraulic disc brakes, and a WTB wheelset, this lightweight carbon MTB is ready for take-off.

Trail Stability

The Rapide CR Carbon HT Bike frame features sculpted tubing for increased stand over 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. Oversized bottom bracket area increases lateral stiffness for better acceleration by transmitting every ounce of pedalling energy through the drivetrain to the rear wheel.

29er Wheelset

The 29er 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.

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.
