The Vitus Energie VR; cyclocross race bike; hardcore winter training bike or all season commuter; your one bike for all occasions.
Cyclocross 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 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 comes equipped with a race ready single ring set up built around the SRAM Rival 1 Hydro groupset which combines a wide ratio cassette with a single ring X-SYNC 40t chainring; Rival hydraulic disc brakes; a Tubeless-Ready WTB Frequency CX Team/Novatec wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package.
6061-T6 Alloy Frame & HM-UD Carbon Fork With Tapered Carbon Steerer & 15mm Through Axle
Our cyclocross specific frameset features a 6061-T6 alloy tubeset with increased tyre and mud clearance for high volume cyclocross tyres. Cable routing has been 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 15mm through axle configuration to ensure precise tracking and steering with the ability to handle the rigours of competitive cyclocross racing.
Bottle cage mounts have been added along with mudguard and pannier mounts to expand the potential for all year multi-purpose use.
