The 2020 Vitus Mythique VRS is a fantastic value all mountain and trail bike suitable for a multitude of riding. With a great spec list, competent geometry and great performance Vitus horst-link suspension platform providing full active braking, plus a good pedal platform with great climbing and descending properties
We Reviewed the Vitus Mythique VR a while back and found it to be great value at just £999, with spec list that would be perfect for a beginner to intermediate rider wanting to get out on the trails and into weekend mountain biking with mates at trail centers.
After a few dodgy paint jobs in the past the 2020 Vitus lineup looks absolutely amazing and stylish – the military green VRS looks da bomb!
The VRS is currently available at just £1159 – JUST £160 more than the VR – with possibly £500 more in the value of upgraded parts!
The VRS features an additional 10mm of travel over the VR – giving it 140mm both front and rear – more than enough for a trail bike and matching the 140mm on the higher priced Escarpe. The VRS features exactly the same frame design as the VR but with the longer travel X-Fusion Sweep RC forks and the longer stroke X-Fusion 02PRO-R 200 x 56.
Compared to the VS the VRS is coming in with a budget dropper post instead of the standard ridged seat-post of the VR – dropper posts are an essential component of trail riding nowadays and would have been the first upgrade to the VR, so its great to see this on the VRS!
The VRS also comes with a SX Eagle 12 Speed drivetrain – more range than the 10 speed drive of the VR and also comes with a SRAM SX Crankset instead of the Suntour!
We are impressed with the Mythique VR and for just £160 more the Mythique VRS looks absolutely perfect!
The 2020 Vitus Lineup is selling like hot cakes at the moment -especially while CRC are running 20% off the list price. So if you want one, best to snap it up quick before they sell out. Stock is shifting as soon as it gets to CRC or Wiggles warehouse!
