Whether you’re looking for high speed adventure, expanding your riding possibilities, or just want to take the most direct route to work, the Vitus Substance Carbon has you covered. The Substance Carbon is the bike that will go anywhere you point it, on whatever road surface you choose.
With a dedicated lightweight carbon frame designed to take both 700c and 650b wheels & tyres, the possibilities are endless. The Substance offers you a new way to ride.
With a Hi-Mod T700 Toray carbon frame, tapered headtube, and full carbon forks, the Substance is born tough and light. This bike can go as hard and fast as you want it to. With the addition of mounts for luggage, mud guards and multiple bottles it’s also capable of the biggest bike packing or touring adventures
The Substance is fitted with 650b WTB Frequency wheels and big volume WTB Horizon 47c tyres. We believe 650b is the future of adventure cycling, the large outer diameter keeps your wheels rolling over bumps, whilst the added tyre volume allows you to adjust pressures depending on the terrain for grip, comfort and luggage weight. The Wheels are tubeless ready, so just install the supplied valves and add sealant if you want to run tubeless.
The Substance CR is finished off with the versatile SRAM APEX 1 HRD groupset and Vitus finishing kit including our adventure specific flared drop bars. This gives you wide position stability for tackling off road terrain, and a comfortable road riding position you can maintain for long periods
