    Summary

    Expirience with the Vitus RAPIDE 29 VR

    Vitus RAPIDE 29 VR Review The RAPIDE 29 VR was designed for use in on sporty excursions. And that's exactly where it shines. The handling of this bike remains balanced thanks to a moderate geometry. The relatively high front allows you to sit upright in the saddle. In the price range under 2000 Euro, other manufacturers tend to install higher quality shifting systems. Another strong argument needs to be mentioned: the coherent geometry and the grippy tires will make you smile all the way to the bottom of the descent.
