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 our hydroformed double-butted alloy frame with hi-tensile steel 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 added a pannier rack which offers enough stowage space for your briefcase or bag. A built in rear LED light will ensure maximum visibility to other road users giving additional safety and peace of mind. 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
Components & Transmission
The 7-speed groupset which provides 21 gears to choose from will ensure you reach your destination with minimal exertion and without the need for a change of clothes. Shimano Tourney shifters and derailleurs provide efficient gear selection. The SR Suntour XCT triple chainset offers a wide gear ratio to cover the demands of your daily commute. A lightweight alloy wheelset will keep you rolling along with minimal effort with low rolling resistance and additional puncture protection being offered by the Continental Contact tyres.
Low maintenance and dependable Vitus V-Brakes offer effective stopping power; the inclusion of a kick stand will allow you to leave your bike freestanding whilst you stop at the newsagents to pick up the daily paper of your choice.
Simple but effective at an unbelievable price; the Vitus Velu 2 has the potential to turn your daily commute into leisurely scenic tour.
