Description

The disc brake equipped 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!

To meet this growing trend we have added the Energie cyclo-cross bike to our lineup!

The Energie features a tough 6061-T6 alloy frame with carbon fork with alloy steerer and has been designed specifically with cyclo-cross racing in mind; new for 2015 we have added a 27.2 seatpost for added comfort and tweaked the geometry by adding a longer top tube and shorter stem combination to increase the front centre dimensions and improve handling. This is by no means a race only machine as the robust nature of this bike will also be ideally suited to commuters and touring fanatics who wish to add panniers and racks and will also double up as a great winter training bike.
By swaping out the CX tyres for a pair of 28c slicks the Energie can be transformed into a go anywhere road, trail or gravel slayer; the all NEW Energie has no boundaries!
The Energie features a Shimano Tiagra groupset with Tektro Lyra mechanical disc brakes; WTB SX17/Formula wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package.

Triple-Butted 6061-T6 Aluminium Frame & HM-UD Carbon Fork With Tapered Alloy Steerer
Our cyclo-cross disc brake 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. A High-Modulus T700 HM-UD Carbon fork features a tapered alloy steerer and beefed-up blades to ensure precise tracking and steering with the ability to handle the rigours of competitive cyclo-cross racing.
Bottle cage mounts have been added along with mudguard and pannier mounts to expand the potential for all year multi-purpose use.
