    • Vitus Sommet 297 CRX Mountain Bike

  • Vitus Sommet 297 CRX Mountain Bike

    The Vitus Sommet 297 CRX is a high-quality enduro race bike that is engineered and equipped to offer the greatest performance imaginable. It features a carbon/alloy frame adorned with 170mm-travel Kashima-coated Fox Float Factory suspension and a 12-Speed Shimano XT M8100 wide-range groupset.

    It rolls upon a mixed-wheel platform (29" front, 27.5" rear) that offers a sublime balance of rolling efficiency, stability and control for riding all-terrains. Vitus has also fitted it with 4-piston Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes to control your momentum with dependable stopping power. And it rolls upon Tubeless Ready Nukeproof Horizon V2 wheels wrapped in high-grip Maxxis Assegai and Minion DHR II tyres.

    Full-Carbon Frame and Mixed-Wheel Platform Enduro Race Bike

    The big-hitting Vitus Sommet CRX 297 Mountain Bike is all about the rush. The rush of air, the rush of trees passing you in a blur, the rush of tyres through dirt, the rush of light, the rush of sounds - the brief snapshots that flood your senses and place you deep in the zone.

    And then there’s the rush that boils up inside you and 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 uplift. The rush that pushes you to explore your limits without overstepping the mark. This is for the full-face thrill seekers and the diehards. This is why you do it.

    Fox Factory Suspension and Shimano XT 12-Speed Groupset

    The Sommet 297 CRX 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 responsive through tight corners, while a stable 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. Plus, it’s easier to pull manuals and wheelies. With volume added to the carbon front triangle, stability is rock solid without compromising agility. It’s not a bike for taking just any line, it’s a bike for taking the best line. 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.

    Agile, Powerful and Versatile Long-Travel Suspension Bike

    The Sommet is a bike that you sit within, not perch on top. Eagerly shred 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 Enduro tape or dropping in on your favourite descent, speed comes easily to the Sommet CRX. It thrives in the chaos of turbulent 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.
