All new for 2012; meet the Vitus Velu. Designed for inner city commuting with weekend touring capabilities, the Vitus Velu will expand your horizons and offer a broader spectrum of cycling to enthusiasts and commuters alike.
Hydroformed Double-Butted Alloy Frame With Mudguards & Pannier Racks
Built around the same hydroformed double-butted alloy frame as its little brother with an upgraded double-butted alloy fork with durable matte lacquer finish. The relaxed geometry and handlebar position offers a more upright riding position which improves visibility over traffic and city obstacles and improved ergonomics for inner-city commuting.

We have also included full length mudguards for those unforeseen rainy days to help keep the mud and grime from the city streets off your clothes and shoes.
