The 2016 Vitus Energie; cyclo-cross race bike; hardcore winter training bike or all season commuter; your one bike for all occasions!
Cyclo-cross was once the sole preserve of hardened racers who wanted to maintain the competitive edge throughout the winter months but in recent years the sport has exploded into the mainstream with races cropping up every weekend throughout Europe and the UK alike!
The 2016 Energie features a tough 6061-T6 alloy frame with a full carbon fork with a tapered carbon steerer and 15mm through axle configuration for improved tracking; a 27.2 seatpost for added comfort and revised geometry – providing a longer top tube and shorter stem combination to improve handling.
The Energie features a race ready single ring set up built around the new SRAM Rival 1 shifting & X-SYNC 40t chainring; TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes; a WTB Frequency CX Team/Novatec wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package.
Triple-Butted 6061-T6 Aluminium Frame & HM-UD Carbon Fork With Tapered Carbon Steerer & 15mm Through Axle
Our cyclo-cross specific frameset features a triple-butted hydroformed tubeset with increased tyre and mud clearance for high volume cyclo-cross tyres. Cable routing has been specifically designed to prevent ingress of mud and water and to increase comfort when shouldering the bike during cyclo-cross race situations. The High-Modulus T700 HM-UD full carbon fork features a tapered carbon steerer and beefed-up blades with 15mm through axle configuration to ensure precise tracking and steering with the ability to handle the rigours of competitive cyclo-cross racing.
