Description

E-Sommet – A new kind of power

Supercharge your ride with the Vitus E-Sommet. 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. The E-Sommet is designed to let you tackle the steepest hills around 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 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, the E-Sommet rides and handles far lighter than its static weight would suggest. 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 E-Sommet will take you to a whole new level.
