2021 Vitus Mythique Trail Bike | Everything You Need to Know.

Vitus’ entry-level full suspension trail bike, the Mythique, gets improved specs across the board and dropper posts on all models.

In it’s second year, the Vitus Mythique keeps its eyes squarely on the budget trail bike market by improving specs on all four models, with all bikes getting dropper posts as standard.

Key features:

  • 6061-T6 alloy frame
  • 140mm travel front and rear
  • Four bar suspension
  • 27.5 or 29″ wheels
  • S, M, L and XL sizes available
  • VitusBikes.com

The 2021 Vitus Mythique looks slightly different thanks to revised hydroforming on the top tube but it’s still very much a Vitus full suspension bike at first glance.

Changes to the 2021 range include Shimano 1 x drivetrains throughout as well as dropper posts on all models.

With the change to the front triangle, the geometry has changed ever so slightly, but it will still feel like a Mythique, with its four bar linkage. VR and VRW models get 130mm rear travel, while VRS and VRX get 140mm travel.
