Vitus E-Sommet VR

This bike is essentially perfect
Award WiNNER

Scoring an unprecedented perfect score during MBR’s e-Bike testing while earning an essentially unanimous five star reviews from those lucky enough to buy one, the E-Sommet VR e-MTB comes with enviable credentials.

It was Vitus’ purist approach to capturing an authentic MTB experience on this bike that continues to floor both critics and customers.

Firstly, a no-compromise geometry maintains the agility and speed of analogue MTBs. But it was the master stroke of combining Shimano’s E8000 STEPS motor with a finely-tuned mix of SLX M7000 and XT M8000 that brought this hybrid of motor and mechanics screaming and kicking into life.

It’s an electric cocktail of power, speed, and energy. It’s not just a bike that happens to have a motor, it’s a snarling trail weapon designed to energise every ride and fully deserves all the high praise.

“So all the hype and all the on-line reviews are right; this is a high-end, amazingly capable bike and all for the price of something half the spec.” – Chiefhieneken

Vitus E-Sommet Electric MTB (Deore 1×10) 2019

Highly recommended by every reviewer, the Vitus E-Sommet Electric MTB is frequently praised for its modern geometry and quality drivetrain despite its industry-leading price.

The e7000 Shimano STEPS offers exceptional power for those harsh climbs, while the 1X10 Deore drivetrain and M520 four-piston discs sparkle on the descent.

One reviewer, Medrith, described the bike as the “best e-MTB on the market right now”, while Max38 said it had “changed the way I cycle off-road”, adding that it had a “huge grin factor”, which really says it all.
