Simplicity, no fuss, low maintenance; meet the Dee 290 – smooth-rolling big-wheel action with disc brakes for improved stopping power and all-weather reliability.

29er wheels mean a bike that rolls better over rough roads and small kerbs, while Promax mechanical disc brakes with 160mm rotors mean more controlled braking, especially in the wet.

What’s a 29er?

We knew you’d ask that. A 29er is an MTB, just with bigger sized wheels; 29” rather than the 26” hoops found on ‘normal’ mountain bikes.

At Vitus we say it’s up to you to decide if a 29er is right for your size and your riding style, but many riders claim a smoother, faster ride – especially over uneven surfaces – and a better fit in larger bike sizes.

The Dee 290 is based on the same no-nonsense aluminium frame as its Dee 260 cousin and specced with the same fantastic components package – tough alloy disc wheels wrapped in high-volume Maxxis Sphin tyres; Promax mechanical disc brakes; alloy singlespeed chainset and durable Vitus finishing kit.

Brought to you exclusively by Chainreactioncycles.com, the world’s largest online bike store, the Vitus Dee 290 is the perfect introduction to the world of big-wheel action, in a package that won’t break the bank.

Rediscover the fun factor.
