Description

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 new super-light triple-butted 6061-T6 aluminium frame has been combined with a high performance components package to ensure the Sentier delivers on all fronts!

The Sentier VRX takes hardtail performance to a new level with a super-light triple-butted 6061-T6 aluminium frame combined with a high performance components package comprising of Manitou Minute Expert forks; SRAM X1 11 speed gearing; Nukeproof OKLO dropper seatpost, WTB wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package.

The Sentier VRX sets the new standard on high performance aggressive trail hardtails!

Super-Light Mechanical Formed Triple-Butted 6061-T6 Aluminium Frame
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. We have also made the Sentier frames Reverb Stealth compatible.
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.
