More options for the new bikes, and that's good. More bikes, better. Vitus, a rising star mountain bike brand just released their most popular enduro/all mountain bike in the carbon version. With the serious upgrade to the carbon, the new Sommet will be their new flagship machine. The Sommet is a bike that fill the line between another Vitus bikes, the Escarpe and their downhill machine, Domineer.
Vitus Sommet Carbon Details

• 65.5° head angle

• Weight – 12.67kg /27.93lbs (for CRX model)
• Sizes S, M, L, XL
• Price: £2,849.99 - £4,199.99
For this new Sommet Carbon, Vitus builds this in two versions, the top spec Sommet Carbon CRX and the Sommet Carbon CR. Those bikes are fully loaded with SRAM parts, such as the combo Pike and Monarch Plus. So what's the difference? The CRX model uses most carbon things in most of the parts, while the CX model have lower spec. It can be seen on the dropper post used in CX, which is unnamed brand.

Another difference of those models are the fact that the CRX model is lighter than CX model, as the CRX comes with most carbon of their parts. But to make the Sommet lighter, there's need additional money up to £1,300. So?
