The Rapide 29 features a 6061-T6 Aluminium frame with modern geometry and boasts trail-ready components. These include the smooth performing RockShox Recon Silver RL forks, slick-shifting Shimano Deore 1x10 speed gears and powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.
Benefitting from the proven geometry of its carbon sibling, the Vitus Rapide 29 Mountain Bike is an assured aluminium hardtail that’s well equipped for fun on the trails or competing in cross-country races.
Ticking all the right boxes, this bike is light, nimble and, above all, fun. Superlatives aside, the Rapide 29 is, simply, an excellent cross-country mountain bike. Refined in looks and performance, it’s the perfect platform for building your confidence in the XC and marathon race scene.
A single front chainring, internal cable routing and durable 10-speed Shimano Deore groupset offer plenty of gear range whilst keeping the maintenance low - something you will be thankful for once the filthier winter months draw in and the trails get ugly. A 100mm RockShox suspension fork takes the edge off the bumps to keep your momentum and speed up.
Sure, you can take the Rapide out for a good thrashing on the trails and squeeze every ounce of performance from your legs in a race, or you can mellow-back and let the easy-rolling 29er cruise along without stress. Such is the joy of a great hardtail - the Rapide is no one-trick pony.
Fast, responsive and fun handling that's super-efficient on the climbs
