Simplicity, no fuss, low maintenance; meet the Dee 290 – smooth-rolling big-wheel action with disc brakes for improved stopping power and all-weather reliability.
Now, add to that an internal geared 3 speed Nexus rear hub and the versatility of this bike reaches new heights!
29er wheels mean a bike that rolls better over rough roads and small kerbs, while Promax mechanical disc brakes with 160mm rotors give you reliable and controlled braking, especially in the wet.
What’s a 29er?
We knew you’d ask that. A 29er is an MTB, just with bigger sized wheels; 29” rather than the 26” hoops found on ‘normal’ mountain bikes.
At Vitus we say it’s up to you to decide if a 29er is right for your size and your riding style, but many riders claim a smoother, faster ride – especially over uneven surfaces – and a better fit in larger bike sizes.
The Dee 290 is based on the same no-nonsense aluminium frame as its Dee 260 cousin and also benefits from the same components package – tough alloy disc wheels wrapped in high-volume Maxxis Sphin tyres; Shimano Nexus 3 speed internal geared rear hub; Promax mechanical disc brakes; alloy singlespeed chainset and durable Vitus finishing kit.
Brought to you exclusively by Chainreactioncycles.com, the world’s largest online bike store, the Vitus Dee-29 is the perfect introduction to the world of big-wheel action, in a package that won’t break the bank.
