  • Vitus Rapide 29 CRS Mountain Bike

    Race day ready, the Rapide 29 CRS model is built around a strong, light and responsive carbon fibre frame and backed up by a trail-ready components package. These include the impact-swallowing RockShox SID SL Select forks, Shimano SLX 12 speed gears, plus powerful SLX hydraulic disc brakes. It’s your ultimate hardtail cross country (XC) machine.

    Cross Country (XC) hardtail descriptions are typically littered with overstatement; like Rocketship, course-crusher and game-changer. Yawn. There's no need to lay it on thick or exaggerate, just have fun and get the job done. The Vitus Rapide CRS Mountain Bike does all the talking for itself, on the flowing trails, the marathon days and in the frenetic cross country races.

    The joy of this proven race-ready carbon hardtail is that it easily meets the demands of cross-country, with stiffness that converts power instantly into trail speed and obedient handling that gives you back precious seconds. Attack the climbs, attack out of corners and back yourself to attack off the front.

    The lightweight carbon frame is equipped with components that are dialled for performance. Rockshox SID SL Select forks can be instantly locked out with the OneLoc remote so that you can carry speed up and over climbs. A 12-speed Shimano SLX groupset is a knowing sign that this bike is reliable no matter the raceday conditions. If you want to go chasing for the front of the pack then this bike has the pedigree. But it’s pointless being able to smoke the climbs if the bike then lets you down in the descent, because XC racing is about having the all-round edge and you need a bike that can rail the racing line. And that’s what makes it fun, right? Racing on a bike that feels fast and delivers for you as a rider.

    The Rapide CRS will instill a high level of confidence in you, as when you need acceleration and traction they are available and when you hit the technical stuff and the nervy descents the control and balance keep the handling honest. You’re less tense. Looser, fresher and less fatigued. It's a lightweight hardtail, yes, but the Rapide CRS brings both comfort and performance.

    Please Note: Due to volatility in the bicycle supply chain we may slightly alter the specification of the component parts supplied with this bicycle. Where this happens we have listed the alternate product in the specification table and have ensured that this is of either equivalent or superior specification to the stock component.

    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 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.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a SMALL BOX.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a LARGE BOX.
