Vitus E-Sommet VR Suspension E-Bike - SLX 1x11

Supercharge your ride with Vitus' E-Sommet VR Suspension E-Bike. Enduro doesn’t have to be gravity focussed anymore - now you can experience the buzz of carving corners on both the climbs and the descents with electronic assistance. This E-Sommet VR Suspension E-Bike is designed to let you tackle the steepest hills with ease, getting you to the top faster and fresher means you can concentrate on the descents ahead, ride more laps, and spend more time on your bike!

Aggressive Geometry with Agile Handling

To make the most of the Shimano Steps E8000 MTB pedal assist motor, the E-Sommet VR Suspension E-Bike takes it’s ride characteristic and suspension platform from Vitus’ successful Sommet enduro bike. With the extra weight of the battery and motor, low yet central, this suspension E-Bike rides and handles far lighter than its static weight suggests. The aggressive geometry, custom-tuned suspension, low weight and long chainstays combine to create such an incredibly stable and composed bike that you would be forgiven for thinking that you were invincible. If you ride bikes for the fun factor, the Vitus E-Sommet VR Suspension E-Bike will take you to a whole new level. As the battery can reach 80% charge within 2 hours, you'll struggle to stay away from the trail.

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.
