Even the relatively new eMTB range hasn't escaped the revamping brush

Alongside the widespread revamp of almost the entire catalogue of ‘normal’ mountain bikes, Vitus has decided to not spare eMTBs either.

>>> Our highlights from the 2019 Vitus mountain bike range

For 2019 Vitus has streamlined its offerings a little. There are still two full suspension machines based around the ever popular Sommet enduro bike but now only a single hardtail E-Sentier remains. So what’s new:

Vitus has continued with two models of E-Sommet for 2019. Obviously based around Vitus’ enduro machine, the E-Sommet shares the same 170/160mm travel suspension design.
