1997 Vitus 992 - What material is it?zmarke

I know this seems silly but I want to purchase this frame from someone but they are not sure of the material and their warehouse is closed.

Does anyone know if a 1997 Vitus 992 is steel, aluminium, or carbon?

Thanks

It's not stiff like oversized al frames. They're pretty light, very comfortable on long rides and not known for durability. I enjoyed mine greatly until the derailleur hanger snapped and could not be replaced by screwing on a new one.
