Vitus Bikes Energie VR Cyclocross Bike – Rival 1×11

The Vitus Bikes Energie VR Cyclocross Bike is a versatile bike that balances performance, comfort, and reliability. Whether you plan on using the Energie VR as your dedicated racing machine, as a hardcore winter training bike, or a comfortable all-season commuter, this Vitus bike can be used with total confidence in any situation.

Tough, Light Alloy Frame

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 VR 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.

Reliable Components

The Energie Cyclocross Bike comes equipped with a reliable, race-ready drivetrain, built around SRAM’s Rival 1 groupset with a wide ratio cassette and single ring X-SYNC 40T chainring. Rival hydraulic disc brakes, a WTB STPi23/Novatec wheelset with WTB CrossBoss 35c tyres and Vitus’ own finishing kit completes this aluminium cyclocross bike. Bottle cage mounts have been added along with mudguard and pannier mounts to expand the potential for all year multi-purpose use.

Comfortable and Practical

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 15mm through axle configuration to ensure precise tracking and steering with the ability to handle the rigours of competitive cyclocross racing.
