Vitus Sommet 297 Mountain Bike Frame
Vitus Sommet 297 Frame: Stable, agile — built for speed
Our big-hitting Vitus Sommet mountain bike just got bigger, bolder and more exciting. It’s the same old rush of the Sommet but with the fun dialed up so you can defy the rules and take your riding to a whole new level.
This frame-only version of the Sommet 297 comes with the Fox Float X2 Factory Series shock. With a supple 170mm of travel, the X2 Factory Series is a high-performance air shock that’s so popular it nearly needs no introduction. Designed to have a coil spring-like feel and an unmatched level of tunability, the X2 Factory Series is Kashima coated, has a two-position open/firm lever and loads of adjustability.
The Sommet is a bike that you sit within, not perched on top. It’s a primo platform for bike park laps, but the Sommet’s true home turf is in the maw of a janky backcountry descent. It stays planted on technical, unpredictable ground and thrives in the chaos of turbulent trails — a magic carpet floating on frenzy.
For gravity missions or between the tape at your local enduro, speed comes easily to the Sommet.
