The Sommet Pro has been the weapon of choice for Vitus Factory Rider Dan Wolfe as he raced throughout 2015 in the Enduro World Series and at stage races such as the Trans Savoire. With a “wish list”components package that will leave you wanting for nothing; the Sommet Pro is built with RockShox Pike forks, Mavic Crossmax XL PRO wheels, a SRAM X1/X01 groupset and Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost!
Pro level components; pro level performance, you deserve the best so we are offering it to you in a fully comprehensive package!
“The Sommet PRO is a truly great bike, fun to ride, undeniably fast and robust. The specification is lifted straight from a racers dream list, and the ride is accurate and engaging. Until now the rule has always been simple, “you get what you pay for”, but things are changing. If this fully loaded Vitus Sommet PRO missile retails for £3500 what the hell are we paying for when we buy a bike that costs twice as much? Enduro-MTB.com (March 2015)

• Main pivot location – This is located in a fixed high and forward position in line with a 32T chain ring position, this gives natural anti squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 1x 32T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback.
• Chainstay pivot location – This pivot is placed in line with the chainstay eliminating any force directed to the shock linkage causing the shock to compressing (pedal bob) due to chain tension. This pivot location also maximizes active suspension when using the rear brake similar to a floating brake design without the added weight.
• Rearward Axle path – Because of the main pivot location the Sommet has 66mm of travel with reward axle path helping to keep your momentum.
• Leverage rate design – The leverage rate is designed to have a falling rate to sag point then go mildly progressive; this helps the bike sit comfortably in the sag position with a stable platform. The lower shock mount moves forward with the suspension, this helps to keep a linier rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock.
Rear wheel travel is controlled via a RockShox Monarch Plus RC3 Debon Air custom tuned air rear shock.
