First Look: Vitus' All-New 2023 Mythique Trail Bike

Dec 6, 2022
by Mike Levy  
Vitus Mythique
The range-topping Mythique 29 AMP gets a Pike Select RC fork, an XT/SLX drivetrain, and a $2,599 USD price tag.


With all-around intentions and an easy-to-live-with personality, Vitus' Mythique impressed all of us at our Value Bike Field Test back in 2020 enough that we ended up calling it our favorite budget-minded bike of the year. It worked well and it did it for a damn good price, and now Vitus is making some big changes to the aluminum Mythique platform that they're saying will make it more capable.

The all-new Mythique frame is built with nicer aluminum tubing, updated geometry, revised suspension kinematics, a universal derailleur hanger, and a trunnion-mount shock that delivers either 130mm or 140mm of travel depending on the model. This is the production version of the prototype that we spotted at Sea Otter earlier in the year.
Mythique details

Vitus Mythique


Frame Details

While I was a fan of how well the previous Mthyique rode, the snooty side of me also thought it looked very much like the budget brawler that it was. Nothing wrong with that and performance should outweigh appearance, shouldn't it? But it certainly doesn't hurt that the latest version sports simpler and cleaner lines thanks to a different tube set, shapely rocker link, better pivot hardware and, thank the gods above, no odd hump in the top tube anymore.


Vitus Mythique
The Mythique 29 VR has 130mm on both ends via X-Fusion suspension and retails for $1,699 USD.

The 27 and 29 VRX differ in wheel size but both cost $2,299 USD.

$1,999 USD will get you the VRS with either size of wheels.


The straight toptube provides a bunch more standover clearance for when things go wrong, and it also means that the massive seat tube gusset on the old bike is replaced with a smaller one. The seat tube is shorter, as you'd expect, but Vitus has also moved the main rocker link pivot out from the middle of the tube to just in front of it on a hydroformed extension. That's a notable update as you can now completely lower your dropper post, whereas the pivot was in the way on the old bike. The shock is now a metric trunnion mount, and the rear-end is held together with the same hardware as used on the pricier Escarpe and Sommet models.

Cables are routed externally, aside from where the dropper post line disappears into the bottom of the seat tube, and two ISCG tabs are used around the threaded bottom bracket. At the back of the bike, you'll find Boost 148mm spacing and a universal derailleur hanger.


Vitus Mythique
The same frame delivers either 130mm or 140mm of travel depending on the model and shock spec.

Suspension Design

The Mythique's Horst Link layout has evolved a bit from the design we liked so much back in 2020, with Vitus saying they've added 5-percent anti-squat that, "prevents the bike from pitching under hard braking, remaining balanced and resisting excessive deviations from the true geometry, all the while enabling the suspension to remain active and responsive." There's close to 100-percent anti-squat in the lowest gear, but that's said to drop off to 80-percent as you shift down the cog to improve traction, and there's a similar 22-percent progression across the travel.

Vitus uses the same frame across the Mythique range, regardless of if it has 130mm or 140mm of travel, by speccing a 185mm x 50mm stroke trunion shock on the shorter travel bike (VR) and a 55mm stroke shock on the 140mm (VRS, VRX, AMP) versions. You'll find X-Fusion suspension on the lower-priced bikes, while RockShox and Marzocchi are used on the more expensive bikes.

This geo chart shows the geometry with 27.5" wheels.

Geometry

A new frame means new geometry, but there won't be any surprises here. Vitus took a bit off the front of the bike to have it sit at 65.5-degrees versus the previous bike's 66-degree head angle, while the seat tube gets much steeper to sit at an effective 77.5-degrees. Reach has grown, of course, with a large now being 487mm compared to 462mm for the bike we rode back in 2020. All the sizes have the same 435mm chainstays, and seat tubes are now shorter across the board; 410mm for a medium and 440mm for a large, with unobstructed insertion depth to boot.

Aside from reviewing the previous Mythique a couple of years ago and the Sentier hardtail, Kazimer also spent time on the 140mm Escarpe while Seb Stott rode the 170mm-travel Sommet. The general takeaway from all of those tests is that Vitus offers some pretty good performance for the money, so it'll be interesting to see how the new Mythique compares to other modern trail bikes when we review it in the new future. But not tomorrow, I swear.

 @noapathy: Aren't there inserts for that now. So you have an insert that then allows you to thread in a regular (threaded) bottom bracket? That may be the best approach. Otherwise, not use the tube between the two cups. No experience with pressfit bottom brackets but if they come with a similar tube, maybe you could leave it out so that you can reach the hose/cable with the bb cups in place. Not sure how necessary that tube is. My headset is pressfit too and I'm not using a tube there between upper and lower bearing.
  • 5 0
 @vinay: If you leave the "tube" out and the dropper cable will wear a groove into the crank spindle pretty quick since it rotates thousands of times per ride. I'm pretty sure that would not be good. Not sure on those inserts, but next time around I'll use a thread together BB. Sad that pressfit is supposed to be better, yet it's more costly and aggravating than its predecessor.

 @noapathy: Yes - my point is not to have press fit -but to have BB's like the Wheels manufacturing BB's that use a PF frame, but are threaded together halves.

 Too bad about the trunnion mount shock though. I’m not sure why these are becoming so widely used. Is it the shock companies that are pushing them as part of a planned obsolescence scheme or bike companies that are asking for them to get a tiny bit more clearance in the front triangle? Either way I don’t want it. Many examples of how to make a bike without it.

 @noapathy : They're saying that the WheelsMFG thread-together solution is superior to both regular press fit cups and threaded standards. They're talking about having bikes like that from the factory, as an industry 'standard'. They're not talking about your current bike. It's hypothetical.

 @handsomedan: Curious, what are the disadvantages you see of trunnion mount? My understanding is that the primary appeal is the smaller packaging which gains you more freedom in frame design, and now every single Fox and RockShox shock is available in trunnion, so there's, on paper, no restriction in terms of upgrade or replacement. Are there mechanical downsides?

It doesn’t allow the shock to move under side loading and doesn’t allow for much by way of frames that aren’t perfectly in alignment. This leads to early wear and failure. Also if you strip out the threads you need a new shock vs some inexpensive hardware.

 @Muscovir: Sadly, for some reason the longer travel dropper posts are only available with internal routing. The ones without internal routing (so external routing, wireless or a lever under the saddle) are typically only available up to 175mm travel or so. I still don't understand why so as I'd suppose external routing (cable to the collar) actually frees up room under the seatpost, at least for the actuator.
  • 1 0
 @handsomedan: I suspect it has something to do with the trunnion mounts’ supposed better resistance to side-loading forces, although in practice I haven’t found them to be any less affected.
  • 2 0
 @adamszymkowicz: I think the issue is, you don't want the shock to perform as a load carrying member for these loads. It is designed for axial loads, don't subject it to anything else. Having pivots at the shock mounts helps there. Those typically help with moments around one axis but many use a ball-and-socket mount that helps to cancel out all the moments. Those wide Trunnion mounts are the opposite. Because they're so wide, they actually introduce a lot of loads that wouldn't even be introduced that severely in the more classic rear shocks without the ball-and-socket mounts. I do think those actually have some kind of elastomer to cancel these loads, but it would take quite some elastomer to realize that with a Trunnion mount shock.

 Now that is a bike for the people. It's the kind of thing that a kid can save up for with a summer of busting their ass, or that an adult can buy with a tax return and not feel like they've mortgaged their future. It's simple and good, and eminently upgradeable. The only thing I'd do (to the $2600 model) is spend the $45 on a new air spring for the fork to bump the travel up to 150mm which would slacken the head angle about a half degree. After a season I'd probably get a new wheelset, nothing crazy, but DT ratchet body hubs and alloy rims.

 I don't understand these long reach numbers on trail bikes. It seems like modern bikes have deleted large altogether and now if you're between 5'9" and 6'0" your options are "standard medium" or "super-enduro-mega-large". At 5'11, the sweet spot for me is 470-475mm. Now everyone wants to follow the trend of larges with 490-500mm reach and they leave a massive gap between medium and large. I think this kind of sizing leaves a huge gap for a very large demographic or riders.

 I agree. I’m 5’9 and the majority of bikes have a medium about 450mm and then a jump to 475-490.

Ideally I’d have something around the 460-465mm mark but there is very little there

 The big problem is no factory way of measuring reach so the bikes can be quite different and have the same reach number on a chart but be 20-30mm different from what the chart says. Silly bike companies and their made up seat tube angles!

 I mean, I understand the concern. In my case though, I'm a 6'6" rider and it's been pleasant being able to fit XL bikes as of late. I used to be limited to riding only bikes that offered XXL sizes. There weren't a lot. I agree though; some of these reach numbers are pretty jarring given the limits of travel and other geometry numbers.

 @tprojosh: I know STA and top tube length have an impact on the "perceived" reach while seated, but when you're standing on the bike isn't reach the same across the board? It's just the horizontal distance between the bottom bracket and top of the head tube, i.e. the distance between your hands and feet?
  • 6 0
 @mahargetan: I'm stoked that taller riders have more options now. It makes sense to have bikes with 515mm+ reaches for the people that need it. And I think that kind of answers my question - Vitus is killing it on the value of these bikes and part of that is probably due to offering a limited number of sizes. They keep costs down by only producing 4 sizes, but still have something for the smallest riders and the biggest riders.
  • 3 0
 If you look at the geo chart on the vitus site, the reaches are actually a bit smaller for the 140mm travel models. The large is 482mm in that case, for example. Not a huge difference but worth noting.
  • 1 0
 @dilfman1234: Yeah, if only all bike brands had the money that people like Trek or Specialized do to make 6 different sizes. Having worked at a Trek company store, their bikes have their own issues but they oftentimes have a M/L in-between size, which I think is great. Taller riders have an option, and their most common range of sizes get more incremental geo changes.
  • 5 0
 @JoeBristol: the M/L Treks are great. Athertons are even better. More brands should add a size in between given that height is the top of the bell curve.
  • 1 2
 @dilfman1234: if you ride standing only with no cranks, no stem spacers, no stem, and no handlebar (rise or roll), reach is the dimension for you. Large Ripmo/AF 475mm. Santa 475/472mm. These makes/models must not be part of 'everyone'
  • 3 0
 @ceecee: Reach is a horizontal measurement from centre of BB to centre of top of HT. It is a standardised measurement that companies quote specifically because all of the things you said can be changed. It is a way of comparing frames only. dilfman1234 was (correctly) educating tprojosh that reach is independent of the STA, in fact it became the standard exactly for this reason.
  • 3 0
 @ceecee It's implied that crank length and cockpit setup stay constant when comparing different bikes. My point is only that reach is a subjective way to measure the distance between your hands and feet, and is measured the same way from brand to brand.

 well here in Canada the most expensive version ends up 3999 CAD before tax. I assume they do not sell directly so there is prob gonna be customs and some brokerage involved. So in reality any big-name brand already has a nice bike in 3800 - 4600 CAD category with identical or similar specs available in all LBS and also for demo rides.

So answering your question

Trek - Fuel EX 5 or 7 ( gen 5th not the new one)
Spesh - Stumpy Alloy Comp

 @Badman70: What exactly are "high end all aluminum parts?" Also, if it's riding low enough for pedal strikes to the point you put 165 cranks on, your suspension is set up wrong.
  • 1 0
 @skywalkdontrun: high end aluminum parts is exactly what I sounds like. I put all aluminum parts. No carbon fiber. High end means I didn't put any cheap junk on it. I ride daily and hard. I've been down that road of trying to save money by being cheap when it comes to bike components and I've learned my lesson. I'm not sure which part of message you're taking issue with. I speak plainly and honestly. And as for suspension setup I don't think you know what your talking about. Most all bikes these days have a lower bottom bracket due to the slack geos. My personal preference is to have no bottom bracket drop but good luck finding that these days. I've searched extensively for it and it just doesn't exist.
  • 1 0
 @Badman70: Well, judging from your photos, the "high-end all aluminum parts" you've put on your bike are (as I can identify) an old xc riser stem (why?), and hookworms. You're running a Suntour Durolux (I think), and I can't tell what drivetrain you're running, but based on the profile of your shifter set it looks pretty low-end. I'm glad you're out on a bike and all, but you've essentially turned an all-mountain bike into a pavement/skatepark cruiser, radically changed the intended geometry with the stem, and put some seriously heavy suspension pieces on. Now, maybe you have a different wheelset for mountain biking, maybe that's not actually your bike, or whatever, but the changes you've made don't really give me a lot of faith that you know what you're doing. You're taking a machine that's built for a purpose, and trying to radically alter that purpose. It reminds me of a guy that wanted me to put a riser stem and a gel seat cover on a TT bike he bought. All you could do was shake your head. Also, wear a helmet.

 Vitus saying they've added 5-percent anti-squat that, "prevents the bike from pitching under hard braking, remaining balanced and resisting excessive deviations from the true geometry, all the while enabling the suspension to remain active and responsive."

I think you meant anti-rise?

 This is awesome. Reasonably priced, solid components, great geometry, and normal cable routing.

 I’ve got the older model and I love it. Has been ideal for the kind of riding I do and easy to maintain.

 Check, check, check, and... check. Bringing back the Highroller! Haven't seen those in a while, but still a great tire for soft, wet, leafy etc.

 Hoping they offer a frame only option at a decent price, my ageing knees and back might like the upgrade from my hardtail lol

 Lovely bikes....i've just built a Vitus Escarpe up. Really impressed with the tubing etc. Sorry to be selling it...

 Honestly a decent affordable bike for beginners and for people wanting a cheap update. And it comes in 2 wheel sizes.

 Is Mythique like Mystique with a lisp?

 Is that so hard to read because it has a E in the end of otherwise English words?
Aren't "mythic" and "mystic" words and their meanings teached on schools?

 Vitus is originally a French brand, all their bikes have french names.

 @zoomegirl: my fuel ex was 982 dollars because trek makes sure the deal is too good for the employees and thats why 6 months after they buy one they have a friend selling their bike for more then they paid on TrekU because "just upgrading"

 @tprojosh: Yep, having worked at a few Trek shops myself, sounds right. They have to wait a year though or risk the EP being pulled. Smile
