The Sommet 297 frame features a carbon/alloy construction and is optimised for enduro racing. It offers a sublime balance of high-speed control, exceptional pedalling efficiency and all-day riding comfort. It is also equipped with a 170mm-travel Kashima-coated Fox Float X2 Factory Series rear shock and features geometry that's ideal for use with 170mm-travel suspension forks.
This big-hitting Vitus Sommet 297 Mountain Bike frame, specifically designed for a mullet wheel setup, has been enhanced to deliver stability where all around there is chaos. With volume added to the carbon front triangle, the bike feels calm and predictable with no compromise on agility.
So, whether you're flinging yourself through the most technical Enduro tape or shredding your steepest local trails you still get that unforgettable rush. 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.
As the sport of Enduro moves forward, challenging both bike and rider with more technical descents and punchy climbs, the Sommet 297 has been engineered to keep pace. Extensive work has been done to improve small bump sensitivity, smoothing out the trail to keep you firmly in control and reduce pedal bob when you need to lay down more power. There’s a flip-chip to help you refine a setup that best suits your style, internal cable routing to keep everything tidy and the frame is well protected with robust guards on the downtube and chainstays. Dial-in your perfect mullet setup by fitting a big party 29er in the front to keep the rolling momentum high and a business 27.5 at the back for traction and sharp acceleration.
The Sommet is 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. This is the perfect foundation from which to build your dream Enduro bike.
