Winner of MBR’s “Hardtail of the Year 2014 and 2015” the Vitus Sentier returns for 2016 with an all new frame. From backwoods singletrack to trail centre assaults, the Sentier range of aggressive trail hardtails have been designed with fast paced, action packed epics in mind!
Our super-light 6061-T6 aluminium frame has been triple-butted to reduce weight and tune the tubeset for improved handling and all round performance; for 2016 we have increased standover clearance and have also improved lateral stiffness by adding a 142mm x 12mm through axle configuration.
Our aggressive trail geometry has been designed around 27.5” (650b) wheels; a short headtube and low bottom bracket keep the centre of gravity low to provide improved handling.
The derailleur hanger is user replaceable in the event of a crash or mishandling during transit.
