This Vitus Sommet VR Suspension Bike - SLX 1x11 is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
The Sommet VR Suspension Bike features an aggressive geometry and bottomless, yet efficient, suspension that helps this aluminium mountain bike feel at home on the trails, in the bike park, or at the races. The Sommet delivers an agile and reliable performance to help you hone your race craft and climb onto the podium. Equipped with Shimano's 11-speed SLX drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, RockShox Super Deluxe R shock and Yari RC fork, the Sommet VR Suspension Bike is ready to race.
Vitus’ Sommet VR Suspension Bike is dialled-in with an updated enduro geometry. This race-ready rig is now longer, lower, and slacker than ever before. The new 65.5° head angle, increased reach, longer wheelbase, and better standover clearance all combine to inspire confidence: giving the rider more space to move around, improving stability; helping them stay in control on the most technical of trails.
The suspension has been redesigned and increased at both ends with 170mm on the front and 160mm on the rear. Vitus redesigned the leverage curve for the new Trunnion shock to be more supple, supportive, and progressive than the previous version. rear suspension small bump sensitivity has been increased thanks to the incorporation of a super low friction Metric shock. This combined with the upper Trunnion bearing shock mount improves suspension linkage durability and creates a super smooth, supple and responsive ride which offers incredible traction on the trail.
This Sommet VR model has Boost hubs with the wider front and rear axles for offering increased mud clearance, wheel stiffness, strength and durability.

Main Pivot Location: This is located in a fixed high and forward position in line with a 32T chain ring position, this gives natural anti squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 1x 32T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback.
Chainstay Pivot Location: This pivot is placed in line with the chainstay eliminating any force directed to the shock linkage causing the shock to compress (pedal bob) due to chain tension. This pivot location also maximises active suspension when using the rear brake; similar to a floating brake design, without the added weight.
Rearward Axle Path: Because of the main pivot location, the Sommet has 66mm of travel with a reward axle path which all helps the rider to carry momentum over rough terrain and especially over square edged hits.
Suspension Redesign: Redesigned leverage curve for the new Trunnion shock means it is more supple, supportive and progressive than the previous version. The lower shock mount still moves forward with the suspension; providing a consistent rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock.
