  • Vitus Bikes Sentier Hardtail Mountain Bike 2016

    Winner of MBR’s “Hardtail of the Year 2014 and 2015” the Vitus Sentier returns for 2016 with an all new frame. 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!

    Our new super-light triple-butted 6061-T6 aluminium frame has been combined with a high performance components package to ensure the Sentier delivers on all fronts! The Sentier features a Suntour Raidon XC fork; Shimano Deore/FSA groupset with WTB/Novatec wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package.

    Super-Light Mechanical Formed Triple-Butted 6061-T6 Aluminium Frame

    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; for 2016 we have increased standover clearance and have also improved lateral stiffness by adding a 142mm x 12mm through axle configuration. We have also made these frames Reverb Stealth compatible. Our aggressive trail geometry has been designed around 27.5” (650b) wheels; a short headtube and low bottom bracket keep the centre of gravity low to provide improved handling.
