The Rapide 29 VR features a strong and lightweight aluminium frame that puts you in the ideal riding position for control on the toughest trails. It's equipped with 100mm-travel RockShox SID SL Rush RL forks and a Shimano Deore 1x11 speed groupset with powerful hydraulic disc brakes.
Benefitting from the proven geometry of its carbon sibling, the Vitus Rapide 29 VR 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 VR 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 quality 11-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 air-sprung RockShox SID 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.
Please Note: Due to volatility in the bicycle supply chain we may slightly alter the specification of the component parts supplied with this bicycle. Where this happens we have listed the alternate product in the specification table and have ensured that this is of either equivalent or superior specification to the stock component.
