Join us for three days of demos, tasty food trucks, live music, skills clinics, good times, and lively group rides amidst the scenic and surreal landscape of Sedona, Arizona. That’s right, we’re going to the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival on March 3,4,5 – and we’ll be bringing a full off-road demo fleet so you can test ride the Vitus mountain bike of your choice on Sedona’s legendary red dirt trails.

Sedona has a multitude of world-class singletrack to explore, so it may be difficult to decide which routes to ride. Here are our recommendations for local trails paired with the bikes we’ll have on-hand.

Vitus Rapide mountain bike.

The challenging ledges, punchy climbs, and high-speed slickrock flow sections on Mescal and Canyon of Fools seem to be tailor-made for the Rapide FS, our boundary-pushing XC race bike. Check out this route. 

Vitus Mythique mountain bike.

Ride directly from the venue to experience our award-winning trail bike’s climbing prowess. Don’t miss the Javelina descent, with its rock drops and tight turns – guaranteed good times. Check out this route. 

Vitus Escarpe mountain bike.

Slim Shady offers challenging rock gardens that will make any rider grateful for the Escarpe’s progressive suspension and Easy Breezy offers plenty of challenging problems. Take a break in the shadow of Cathedral Rock and soak in the epic scenery. Check out this route. 

Vitus Sommet mountain bike.

The capable Sommet, our burly enduro bike, is hungry for the big hits and double-black features of the Hogs. These loops are short enough to session, so take it easy and learn the correct lines on your first lap before you send it. Check out this route.
