Vitus Rapide 29 MTB Frame

Updated for the new season, the Rapide 29 is aimed at riders seeking a high level performance bike for Cross-Country and Marathon racing. A dedicated and thoroughbred race proven platform, this hardtail frame is going places fast.

Hardtail Frame: Carbon Comfort and Responsive Handling

The ultra-light T700 HM-UD carbon frame features a refined racy geometry with impeccable handling characteristics optimised for 29" wheels.

This new hardtail frame features sculpted tubing for increased standover height; a short headtube and chainstays combined with a low bottom bracket create a low centre of gravity for improved handling and stability on fast sections of technical trails. The larger wheel size rolls over obstacles and rocks with greater efficiency, thus allowing you to carry greater speed for less effort. This hardtail frame will reduce rider fatigue and improve performance: stay fresh for a late surge to the podium.

Sculpted seat and chainstays improve power transfer and rear end rigidity whilst the oversized bottom bracket area increases lateral stiffness for better acceleration - the Rapide is seriously rapid!
