One of mountain bike’s most colourful characters Rob Warner has teamed up Vitus Bikes as brand ambassador for 2020 and beyond.
Synonymous with MTB thanks to his career racing downhill and now commentator on Red Bull Media House, Rob is sure to become an exciting asset to the Belfast-based brand.
“I’m really happy to have Vitus Bikes behind me for 2020,” told Rob. “At the end of last year, I went over to see the crew at Vitus with CRC-Mavic team manager Nigel Page where I tried the new 2020 Vitus Sommet 29er.
“Sizing wise it felt nice and roomy, spot on with a nice relaxed head angle. Probably what stood out the most was just how supple the back end is – the bike offers so much grip in the turns and on the brakes – I felt confident straight away.”
“I’ll be riding all aluminium bikes in 2020,” he explained. “I love alloy bikes, the way they feel, the welding, there’s something about it for me.”
Rob will primarily ride the Sommet 29 enduro along with the both the Escarpe trail bike and E-Escarpe E-bike.
“We are super excited to see Rob join the Vitus family,” said Chris McGlinchey – Vitus Marketing Manager. “Rob is a great ambassador for the sport and has had a massive part to play in the growth of the racing scene through his commentary and content on Red Bull.
“Rob will be riding our brand new Sommet 29 enduro bike along with our new E-Escarpe E-bike and Escarpe trail bike. Everyone at Vitus are excited to see what Rob has in store for the year, welcome to the team!”
Hopefully the news means we’ll see Rob out shredding some local Irish trails in the near future.
During 2020, Vitus will celebrate their 50th anniversary.
