Vitus Sommet 297 CRS review

Jan 2023 · Antony de Heveningham

The Vitus Sommet 297 CRS is an enduro bike, aimed at riders who tackle steeper, rougher tracks and also fancy cable tying a race number on.

Review: 2022 Vitus Sommet 297 AMP - Good Performance, Great Price

May 2022 · Seb Stott

The Sommet is an easygoing long-travel machine, and it's well spec'd for the price.

Highs
  • Long-travel and active suspension is great for plowing

  • Geometry strikes a good balance between stability and agility

  • Good value, especially the other models in the range

Lows
  • Not the most upright climbing position and there's some pedal bob too

  • XL size needs a higher bar

  • The suspension isn't as supportive and stable as some bikes

Vitus Sommet 29 CRS review: killer build and neutral handling - MBR

Oct 2021 · Alan Muldoon

There are three levels of Vitus Sommet 29 and all share the exact same frame with its carbon front end. The Sommet 29 CRS Vitus brings colour to every ride.

Highs
  • Neutral handling, killer build.

Lows
  • No low-speed adjuster on rear shock.

Vitus Sommet 29 CRX review

Apr 2021 · Mark Gover

Offers stonking value for money and delivers a controlled, composed ride

Highs
  • Lively, energetic feel

  • Composed and stable when things get rough

  • Incredible value includes carbon mainframe frame with top-end kit bolted to it

Lows
  • Doesn’t feel quite as planted or as forgiving as the best in category

  • Fox 38 can feel a little over-damped for lighter riders
