OUR RIDERS

At Vitus, our ambassadors are an extension of our brand.

We all share a similar belief that everyone deserves to ride an amazing bike.

Even though our ambassadors are really, really good. They don’t ride for victory at all costs, they ride for the pure pleasure of competition, the joy of solo miles, the simplicity of the wood and the excitement of an adventure with no map and no GPS.

We ride together because it makes us happy, or alone because it helps us think. If we’re completely honest, we ride for the simple pleasure of how riding makes us feel.

We’re all real riders.

ROB WARNER

Rob Warner needs no introduction, from being the first-ever British rider to win a UCI DH World Cup in 1996, to bringing downhill racing to life with his exciting commentating and owning one of the best YouTube channels. There's never a dull moment when Rob’s around! 

JOE SMITH

One of the UK’s most experienced Downhill riders with a host of top 10 world cup results and a 3rd at Red Bull Hardline, we’re stoked to see Joe shred on board a Vitus.
