Vitus Launch the new eMythique LT.

Vitus have released a long travel, ebike version of their ever popular Mythique with a Bafang motor and a 630Wh battery.

Taking the lessons learned from the eSommet, Vitus have released the eMythique LT that offers more travel than it’s non-motorised little brother.

Based around a 6061-T6 alloy frame with 160mm travel and housing a Bafang M510 motor offering up 95Nm of torque fuelled by a 630Wh battery, the new Vitus eMythique is a very different beast to its analogue brethren, the Mythique. The eMythique runs on Mullet (29″ front, 27.5″ rear) wheels. 170 or 160mm forks are suggested.

The alloy frame has a familiar Vitus silhouette, the 160mm travel has a 27% progression, 50-55% anti-rise through the travel to keep the bike upright under braking and increasing grip. Anti-squat in the climbing gears is near 100% to offer plenty of grip without wallowing suspension, with this tailing off in the lower gears to provide supple suspension and reduce feedback through the pedals.
