The Vitus Energie Cyclocross Bike is as versatile as they come. Whether you want to use the Energie as your first race-ready cyclocross bike, a hardcore winter training bike, or a comfortable all-season commuter, this Vitus bike is the machine for all occasions.
Featuring a tough triple-butted 6061-T6 alloy frame, a full carbon fork with a tapered carbon steerer and a 15mm through axle configuration for improved tracking, Vitus’ Energie Cyclocross Bike is a reliable operator. A 27.2mm seatpost improves comfort, whilst the dialled-in geometry of a longer top tube and shorter stem work together to improve handling: something you’ll be grateful of on tight and technical courses or navigating built-up areas on your commute.
The Energie Cyclocross Bike comes equipped with a race-ready single ring chainset. The drivetrain is built around SRAM’s Apex 1 Hydro groupset. Featuring a wide ratio cassette with a single ring X-SYNC 40T chainring, the gear combinations will let you navigate loose, muddy ‘cross courses. Apex hydraulic disc brakes, a tubeless-ready WTB Frequency CX Team/Novatec wheelset and Vitus’ own finishing kit completes this package. Bottle cage mounts have been added along with mudguard and pannier mounts to expand the potential for all year multi-purpose use.
The cyclocross specific frameset has increased tyre and mud clearance for large cyclocross tyres. Cable routing is specifically designed to prevent ingress of mud and water and to increase comfort when shouldering the bike during cyclocross race situations. The high-modulus T700 HM-UD full carbon fork features a tapered carbon steerer and beefed-up blades with 12mm through axle configuration to ensure precise tracking and steering with the ability to handle the rigours of competitive cyclocross racing.
