Vitus Bikes Rapide Hardtail Bike - Eagle 1x12

The Rapide is a dedicated and thoroughbred race proven platform 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 2017 Rapide features an upgraded components package that leaves racers wanting for nothing. It includes a RockShox SID RL fork, the all NEW SRAM Eagle X01 groupset with SRAM Guide hydraulic disc brakes, a WTB/Novatec wheelset and an FSA Afterburner finishing kit for the complete race day ready components package!

Ultra-Light HM-UD Full Carbon Frame

The Rapide 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 chainstays 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.

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.
