New for 2015 Vitus bikes are offering framesets on our most popular models which allows you to build your bike to your own personal preference and requirements.
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.
Our aggressive trail geometry has been designed around 27.5” (650b) wheels and a 140mm travel fork; a short headtube and low bottom bracket keep the centre of gravity low to provide improved handling whilst the larger wheel size will roll over roots and rocks with ease.
The derailleur hanger is user replaceable in the event of a crash or mishandling during transit.
