Vista Logo

The VISTA is one of the very few American-made aggressive hardtails in existence and we made sure that it is capable of handling your riding mayhem. It is exactly what we envision a modern hardtail mountain bike should be…fast, reliable, and fun! Pair the bombproof American-made frame with any of our build kits and we guarantee it will bring an instant smile to your face, evoking that same feeling of freedom and bliss that you had your first summer on a bike.

Is this bike right for you?

If you are looking for a hardtail mountain bike that can handle more than cross country trails, but can handle big hits, rough terrain, dirt parks, and steep downhills, then the VISTA is designed for you. The progressive frame geometry is optimized to keep you feeling confident in the steep downhill sections and allows you to climb like a mountain goat on those daunting hills. It’s for those that dream about riding while they are at work, for those that are on the trail every chance they get, and for those that love the rigidity, sound, and feeling of a hardtail on the dirt trail.

The Frame

The VISTA’s American-made frame is the heart and soul of the bike. The slack head tube, long reach, low bottom bracket, and optimized chainstay length places the rider in the center of the frame, creating a better weight balance between the tires patches, which improves cornering, grip, and control. The rear triangle is one of many features that sets the VISTA apart from others. It has a CNC’d chain stay and seat stay yoke mated to rectangular tubing purposefully designed for added strength and stiffness for optimum power transfer and control.

30-Day Money Back Guarantee

Lifetime Warranty

Purchase with confidence knowing that your frame and Box drivetrain is covered by a limited lifetime warranty!

Easy Assembly

The Details You’ll Love

  • The progressive geometry will make the VISTA your favorite hardtail, instilling confidence, and letting you focus on having fun!
  • The incredibly strong CNC machined chain stay and seat stay yokes along with the rectangular tubing significantly enhances bottom bracket stiffness and increases power transfer when pushing on the crank. It also has enough clearance for larger chainrings and tires up to 3″ wide.
  • The sliding dropouts allow you to modify the wheelbase distance, use different tire sizes, or ride single speed.
  • Internal seat tube routing for dropper seat posts.
  • The long travel Wren Inverted Suspension is super responsive and tuneable. (Build Kit One)
  • The Box Two X-wide range drivetrain shifts like a dream and can handle any hill that you encounter. (Build Kit One)
  • The short 35mm stem, large 35mm diameter handlebar, and 45mm fork offset is a perfect combination that gives the VISTA extremely responsive handling and control.
  • The limited lifetime frame and drivetrain warranty

Progressive Geometry

The bike’s progressive geometry centers the rider’s weight between the front and rear axle–eliminating front-end lift and providing a balanced attack position for both climbs and descents. First, we’ve slacken’d the head angle and extended the frame reach to put the front wheel more in front of the rider. This improves the fork angle of approach to absorb impacts, which in turn increases the fork responsiveness and allows the bike to roll over obstacles easier. Generally, with a slacker head angle, it is harder to steer the bike, but we’ve shortened the stem and decreased the fork offset to provide more direct control of the steering, which allows the rider to maintain better control at lower speeds. Lastly, we positioned the rider in a more central position on the bike by steepening the seat tube angle and lengthening the chainstays. This greatly increases the climbing and traction of the bike by balancing the rider weight over the front and rear tire patches.

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!
