Zircon 29

So you’re 29er-curious. Here’s your chance to scratch that itch…

For riders keen to explore the claimed performance benefits of larger wheels, the Vitus Zircon 29 combines 29” hoops with a lightweight triple-butted 6061-T6 hydroformed aluminium frame and trail-ready componentry at a wallet-friendly price.

Featuring 100mm of front suspension travel with lockout mode for city streets or fire-road climbs; high-volume tyres for comfort and grip; powerful mechanical disc brakes for reliable stopping power and a 24-speed SRAM transmission to get you over the steepest ascents and back down the other side.

At Vitus we say it’s up to you to decide if a 29er is right for your size and your riding style, but many riders claim a smoother, faster ride – especially over uneven surfaces – and a better fit in larger bike sizes.

Brand new for 2013, the Vitus Zircon 29 is brought to you exclusively by Vitus Bikes and Chainreactioncycles.com.

Lightweight frame and 100mm travel Rockshox forks
At the heart of the Zircon 29 is a lightweight, triple-butted, heat treated 6061-T6 aluminium frame with hydroformed tubeset, trail-tuned geometry, replaceable derailleur hanger and excellent upgrade potential. The frame also features internal cable routing to prevent mud and water getting into cable housings – keeping you shifting smoother for longer and keeping your bike out of the shop and out on the trails.

Suspension duties up front are handled by the dependable RockShox XC30 TK 29 coil forks, with 100mm of travel for smooth bump absorption as well as lockout mode for climbing and commuting.

SRAM groupset
The Zircon 29 features a full 24spd SRAM groupset with X4/X3 shifters and derailleurs and a triple chainset offering a wide selection of gears. Stopping power comes courtesy of Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes front and rear, with dependable braking even in wet and muddy conditions.

Finishing Kit
A reliable SRAM/Jalco wheelset will make sure you stay rolling while Maxxis Beaver tyres keep you firmly planted on the trail or street.
A mix of Easton and Vitus finishing kit round out the Zircon 29 package – a lightweight and durable bike that offers the perfect introduction to the big-wheel world.
