Vista is our take on what a hardtail mountain bike should be…aggressive, fast, and fun! Vista is an American-made mountain bike with modern trail geometry, plus sized tires, and burly tubing. Designed as a mesh between a trail bike and dirt jump bike, the Vista doesn’t feel out of place stopping at the pump track on the way home from a trail ride. The Vista’s roomy cockpit is made for short stems and wide bars for better control on switchbacks and rock gardens. The slack head tube angle, low bottom bracket, and optimized chain stay lengths make for a balanced ride to keep you feeling confident on the steep downhill sections or climbing that daunting hill.

A new design

Oversized American-made 6061 tubing up front combined with rectangular tubing matted to CNC’d chain stay and seat stay yokes in the rear significantly reduces frame flex and improves torsional compliance, while giving the Vista it’s unique look.


  • Greater power transfer in each pedal stroke
  • Better cornering by keeping your bike tracking straight
  • Improved braking performance by reducing seat stay flex
  • Allows for greater tire, crankarm, and chainring clearance
  • More precise manufacturing process, creating stronger weld joints

Finish Options

Factory Raw

A current trend in the hand crafted bike industry is choosing a bike that is delivered with a factory raw finish. The factory raw look best reveals the manufacturing quality and technical details of the frame. Factory raw frames are not coated after production, but move directly to assembly. Over time, an oxide layer/patina forms on the frame, causing the shine of the raw aluminium to fade slightly. With the help of a polishing compound or cleaner, the old shine can be restored in a few easy steps.

Powder Coat

If you decide to customize the color of your bike, you can choose from a selection of several different powder coat colors. If there isn’t a color shown on our bike build page, please contact us for custom options. Powder coating is an advanced finishing process that is a extremely durable and more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing when exposed to snow, rain, and the hot sun.

The Vista is handcrafted in the heart of the Midwest from American-made 6061-T6 tubing.

Great bike

Great craftsmanship and is built in the USA! Very happy with my Wyatt Vista!

Well built bike with great versatility!

I purchased the Wyatt Vista with the intent on using it on the trails as well as commuting and, so far, this bike is meeting my expectations. It is easy to pedal around town for a big mountain bike and handles well on the trails. The crank is exceptionally smooth and the bike itself is very ergonomic. Very comfortable for long rides or commutes. I love this bike!

This Bike Does it All!

This bike really does make me feel like a kid again! Quality is evident as soon as you open the box. Bike went together easy in less than 10 minutes. I was amazed how quick the acceleration is, this bike is fast! Big plus size tires can tractor through anything and inspire so much confidence when riding. I have had this thing on hard pack, rocks, sand, roots, mud, jumps, and even slow trail rides with the kids. It handles everything great and I have a smile on my face from start to finish. I am so happy with my purchase, bike was worth every penny. Proud to be riding a bike made in USA. Being able to customize your color scheme is an extra bonus!

Loving my Wyatt Vista!

Just back from a trail ride on my new Wyatt Vista and it rides as great as it looks! The bike is a thing of beauty - in raw aluminum with a clear-coat finish, you can see the craftsmanship and attention to detail on the frame. The ride was nimble and sure-footed on terrain with a mix of rocks, roots, dirt, and some mud. In a number of situations where I would have wiped out on any other bike, I stayed upright and exclaimed “Has Dampf!” in my best German accent in appreciation of the grippy Scwalbe Hans Dampf tubeless tires. I like the Box drivetrain a lot too. It gets to the gear I need when I need it: starting up a sled hill, it responded quickly to my shift and got the chain right up to the big 50T gear (and shifted to the smaller cogs nicely on the way down too). The Vista is a tremendous value: With the bike being built to order, you get the components you want right from the beginning so you don’t need to spend more upgrading it later. The standard spec includes the Schwalbe tubeless tires plus nice pedals, seat, and grips. This is my second Wyatt bike purchase (bought the Driftless fatbike a few years ago). Wyatt’s customer service has been absolutely top-notch both through my years with the fatbike and through the ordering, production, and delivery of the Vista. You can’t beat having a great bike built for you by a great company right here in the USA - I highly recommend the Wyatt Vista!

All Around Excellent Bike for ALL Riders

I have been in the market for a nicer bike for a while, but have never dove too far into the waters that is mountain biking and actually pulled the trigger. After some research I quickly leaned towards a few strong choices but the one of which clearly stood out to me for several reasons was Wyatt Bikes. Reason number 1 - I am a fairly novice rider and Wyatt was able to clearly explain what may be important to me, while allowing me to tailor my Vista to these needs/wants (or lack thereof) and budget. Reason 2 - locally made in Wisconsin. This is huge to me as I prefer to buy American made products and especially lean heavily towards Wisconsin based companies. Reason 3 - Price, this bike is extremely reasonable for the quality parts and craftsmanship that went into it. After having the bike for 10 days I can confidently say that this is one of the better purchases I have made. My expectations have clearly been exceeded and the bike is truly just fun to ride. Overall, the Vista is extremely diverse excelling on the road, trails, and rocky hills. The handling is great and you can really feel the control you have over the bike. The Manitou Suspension fork does the job on rough terrain, and the Schwalbe 29er tires create a super smooth ride. I could go on and on, but I will just say the Vista is great. I would highly recommend to anyone if you want to feel like that six year old kid again who just got his training wheels off! Cheers!
