  • Vitus E-Sommet 297 VRS Mountain Bike

    The E-Sommet 297 VRS is a long-travel full-suspension enduro electric bike (E-Bike) that is ideal for enduro racing and long-distance all-mountain adventures. It features a strong, stiff and lightweight aluminium frame equipped with an integrated Shimano STEPS electronic motor drive, a Shimano SLX 12-Speed groupset and long-travel RockShox Zeb and Super Deluxe suspension.

    Engineered and optimised to offer exceptional comfort, control and efficiency, this bike quickly shifts through its gear range, provides a pedal-assisted boost when you need it and has powerful hydraulic disc brakes to control your momentum. It also rolls upon a mixed-wheel platform (29" front / 27.5" rear) for the perfect balance of high-speed control and agility. And Vitus has equipped it with Tubeless Ready Nukeproof Neutron V2 wheels wrapped in high-grip Maxxis Tyres.

    The Vitus E-Sommet VRS Mountain Bike has all the trail-shredding performance and longer travel of a big-hitting 170mm Enduro bike, with a Shimano motor under the hood that kills the climbs and extends access to the most technical tracks.

    Long-Travel Full-Suspension Enduro Race E-Bike

    Experience the rush - the brief snapshots that flood your senses and place you deep in the zone. The feeling of total control as you float from take-off to landing and rip down descents, from bike park to big mountain. The rush as you roll out at the bottom of the trail and chase one last run. The rush that pushes you to explore your limits without overstepping the mark. Miss the last uplift? Doesn’t matter. The smooth EP8 drive unit will soon have you back at the trailhead. This is for the full-face thrill seekers and the diehards. This is why you do it.

    Shimano STEPS Motor Drive and SLX 12-Speed Groupset

    The E-Sommet VRS has been developed to run a mullet wheel setup. A 27.5” rear wheel gives you more clearance over the back for steep ground and is more responsive through tight corners, while a 29” wheel at the front eats up rocky terrain and keeps momentum high. You’re getting the versatility of both wheel sizes in one bike. The stability of the full aluminium frame with a seamlessly integrated battery is rock solid, so you won’t be taking just any line, this is a bike for taking the best line. This is a bike that tracks so accurately it rewards you with time. Time to line up the next obstacle and pick your route as the trail unfolds in front of you. The powerful STEPS system, with a punchy E8036 630wh internal battery keeps you fresh on the climbs so you can go all-in on the descents.

    The E-Sommet VRS is a bike that you sit within, not perch on top. It’s a powerful rider position that puts you firmly in control. Eagerly build your confidence on the refined berms and manicured features of a trail centre but take a step into the wild and that’s where this bike really comes alive, revelling in the unpredictability of naturally technical ground. Whether threading the needle through the challenging terrain of your favourite forest trails or dropping in on the lively descents of an e-Enduro, speed and traction come easily to the E-Sommet. It thrives in the chaos of steep and challenging trails. Bringing calm where all around there is frenzy.

    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 and plastic pedals 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 balance 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 balance 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.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a SMALL BOX.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a LARGE BOX.

    Please note that due to ongoing issues in the global bike supply chain, manufacturers may substitute certain component items due to availability. In this situation, they will be replaced with the same quality or better performing parts.
