The Sommet 297 CRX features a carbon/alloy frame adorned with 170mm-travel Kashima-coated Fox Float Factory suspension and a 12-Speed Shimano XT M8100 wide-range groupset.
It rolls upon a mixed-wheel platform (29" front, 27.5" rear) that offers a sublime balance of rolling efficiency, stability and control for riding all-terrains. Vitus has also fitted it with 4-piston Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes to control your momentum with dependable stopping power. And it rolls upon Tubeless Ready Nukeproof Horizon V2 wheels wrapped in high-grip Maxxis Assegai and Minion DHR II tyres.
The big-hitting Vitus Sommet CRX 297 Mountain Bike is all about the rush. The rush of air, the rush of trees passing you in a blur, the rush of tyres through dirt, the rush of light, the rush of sounds - the brief snapshots that flood your senses and place you deep in the zone.
And then there’s the rush that boils up inside you and the feeling of total control as you float from take-off to landing and rip down descents, from bike park to big mountain. The rush as you roll out at the bottom of the trail and chase one last uplift. The rush that pushes you to explore your limits without overstepping the mark. This is for the full-face thrill-seekers and the diehards. This is why you do it.
The Sommet 297 CRX has been developed to run a mullet wheel setup. A 27.5” rear wheel gives you more clearance over the back for steep ground and is responsive through tight corners, while a stable 29” wheel at the front eats up rocky terrain and keeps momentum high. You’re getting the versatility of both wheel sizes in one bike. Plus, it’s easier to pull manuals and wheelies. With volume added to the carbon front triangle, stability is rock solid without compromising agility. It’s not a bike for taking just any line, it’s a bike for taking the best line. A bike that tracks so accurately it rewards you with time. Time to line up the next obstacle and pick your route as the trail unfolds in front of you.
The Sommet is a bike that you sit within, not perch on top. Eagerly shred the refined berms and manicured features of a trail centre but take a step into the wild and that’s where this bike really comes alive, revelling in the unpredictability of naturally technical ground. Whether threading the needle through Enduro tape or dropping in on your favourite descent, speed comes easily to the Sommet CRX. It thrives in the chaos of turbulent trails. Bringing calm where all around there is frenzy.
