Vitus Bikes Sentier 29 Hardtail Mountain BikeWinner of MBR’s “Hardtail of the Year 2014 and 2015” the Vitus Sentier returns for 2016 with an all new frame. From backwoods singletrack to trail centre assaults, the Sentier range of aggressive trail hardtails have been designed with fast paced, action packed epics in mind! Our new super-light triple-butted 6061-T6 aluminium frame has been combined with a high performance components package to ensure the Sentier delivers on all fronts! The Sentier 29 features a Manitou Minute Comp fork; Shimano SLX/Deore groupset with WTB wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package. With fast rolling 29” wheels the Sentier 29 will make it easy for you to smash Strava segments on any trail!Super-Light Mechanical Formed Triple-Butted 6061-T6 Aluminium Frame Our super-light 6061-T6 aluminium frame has been triple-butted to reduce weight and tune the tubeset for improved handling and all round performance; for 2016 we have increased standover clearance and have also improved lateral stiffness by adding a 142mm x 12mm through axle configuration. We have also made these frames Reverb Stealth compatible. Our aggressive trail geometry has been designed around 29” wheels and a 140mm travel fork; a short headtube and low bottom bracket keep the centre of gravity low to provide improved handling whilst the larger wheel size will roll over roots and rocks with ease Features:Frameset: Frame: Mechanical Formed Triple-Butted 6061-T6 Aluminium Forks: Manitou Minute Comp, 140mm Travel, TS Air spring, Ø32mm Aluminium stanchions, Compression to Lock-out and Rebound damping, TPC Technology ABS+ Trail Tuned, Tapered aluminium steerer, 15mm QR Through Axle Groupset: Chainset: Shimano Deore FC-M615, 175mm, 38tx24t Bottom Bracket: Shimano Shifters: Shimano Deore SL-M610 Rapid Fire Plus, 10-Speed Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore FD-M618, 34 9mm Band Rear Derailleur: Shimano SLX RD-M675 Shadow Plus Cassette: Shimano CS-HG50, 11t-36t, 10-Speed Chain: KMC X10, 10-Speed Wheelset: Rims: WTB STP i19 TCS (tubeless ready), 29” Front Hub: Novatec D811 - 6 Bolt, 100mm x 15mm Rear Hub: Novatec D882 - 6 Bolt, 142mm x 12mm Spokes: Stainless Double Butted Tyres: Front - WTB Vigilante Comp, 29” x 2.3” Rear – WTB Trail Boss Comp, 29” x 2.25” Components: Front Brake: Shimano BR-M396 Hydraulic Disc, 180mm Rotor Rear Brake: Shimano BR-M396 Hydraulic Disc, 160mm Rotor Handlebars: Vitus Riser Bar, 6061 Double Butted Alloy, 15mm Rise, 740mm Wide Headset: FSA Orbit 1.5 Zero Stack (NO 57B) 1.1/8” - 1.5” Stem: Vitus, 3D Forged 6061-T6 Aluminium, +/- 3 Degree Rise, 50mm Extension Saddle: Vitus Seatpost: Vitus Alloy, 6061-T6, 15mm Offset, 31 6mm x 400mm Seatclamp: Vitus QR Weight: 13.23kg/29 17lbs (size M) Buy Vitus Bikes from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World's Largest Online Bike Store.
