Vitus Mythique 29 VR Mountain Bike

Vitus Mythique 29 VR Mountain Bike - £1,599.99

Building on its award-winning heritage, the new generation of Mythique is a performance focused aluminium trail bike. It's an ideal all-rounder, with each model boasting carefully selected components that blend perfectly for maximum trail-blurring fun.

We’ve all got our favourite trail. The go-to. It might not be the most technical, it might not have the steepest turns or descents that induce a cold sweat, but that flow is so good to ride. You can visualise every inch of it. Every rise, fall and bend. Dialled. The Vitus Mythique 29 VR Mountain Bike delivers that same feeling of ease, building your confidence with its proven capability and control so every trail feels like a new favourite. The Mythique cares not for your riding style or where you ride - it simply brings the fun. The downside? How long you’ll be waiting for your mates to catch up.

The Mythique isn’t necessarily about the bravado of getting as rowdy and hectic as possible, although point it at something more aggressive and it’ll gladly comply. This is a trail bike that’s agile and playful without getting out of hand. Rein it in with ease or cut loose and unleash your full trail riding potential. This is consistent performance along the whole track from a bike that calmly stitches together the technical sections with balance and poise. The suspension design is a long-proven platform that better prevents pedal bounce when you’re climbing whilst also maintaining predictability under braking. Furnished with proven Shimano Deore components that include a 10-speed drivetrain, this bike is ready to ride, straight out the box.

Not to be underestimated, the Mythique has the personality of a workhorse - trustworthy and controlled - with a trail-taming capability that rolls well above its price point. It’s a bike that inspires confidence without defining your style - the flair comes from you, the bike just helps you ride that perfect line.

  • Geometry Updates

    Side-by-side the changes are clear to see. Upfront, the head tube is 0.5° slacker (66° to 65.5° with a 140mm fork), promoting more control across a wider variety of terrain, in particular when things become steeper and more technical. This is balanced out with a revised 1.5° steeper effective seat tube angle (76° to 77.5° on a 29” with 140mm fork), reflecting the change in reach and positioning the rider further over the bottom bracket for more efficient climbing.

  • Reach

    We don’t believe in reserving features for top-end models. In particular, when it comes to geometry – if it can benefit everyone’s riding, then it’s worth doing at every price point. Once more, we looked closely at the Sommet and Escarpe and tweaked the geometry accordingly so that the Mythique is much more responsive on the climbs. No more will you feel slouched and sluggish over the rear of the bike.

  • Slam The Dropper

    You asked. We listened. The new Mythique can now accommodate a full dropper insertion across all sizes, so you can maximise movement and get the weight right back when the trail falls away.

  • Keeping it Simple

    Nothing sucks the fun out of riding quite like mountain bike industry standards and jargon. The Mythique aims to keep it real. To focus on what’s easiest for the customer when it comes to maintenance and upkeep. To prioritise using parts, bearings and hardware that are durable and widely available. Parts that have been thoroughly tested on the Mythique in all conditions.
