Vitus Sentier 29 VRS Mountain Bike

Vitus Sentier 29 VRS Mountain Bike - £1,599.99

The Vitus Sentier VRS mountain bike has quickly established itself as a classic hardtail, having amassed something of a cult following thanks to its confident and playful character.

But it’s not just the people’s champion, the Sentier is a multi-award winner that continues to prove itself out there on tough trails and All Mountain adventures. A hardtail that won’t shy away from technical descents and aggressive riding, it never fails to find that flow and excite. Snappy, obedient and nimble, like a hardtail should be, yet also hungry to go all-in where things get steep and challenging. Where other hardtails get weak at the knees.

Let’s be clear. The Sentier is not all cheeky upstart and bluster. Far from it. From head to toe, this bike is dressed to impress to deliver the finest trail riding experience. The longer, slacker geometry gives it the control and stability to cruise the tricky sections, while the shorter stem keeps the handling precise should you need to whip it through the turns. From the dropper post to the 1x12 speed Deore drivetrain and the 130mm Fox Float fork, this mountain bike casually exudes performance. The double-butted aluminium frame and quality components are ready to go straight from the box, but as you get to know your Sentier, as you become addicted to it’s personality, so this becomes the perfect chassis to put your own stamp on. To personalise and customise your dream hardtail setup.

For full-day sessions with mates. For cruising the climbs and railing the descents. For balance and poise with no loss of entertainment. For keeping the fun-factor turned right up. Any time on-board the Sentier is playtime.
