Whether you are planning to tackle your first century ride or just to join the A group on your local club rides; the all NEW Venon VR will help you attain your goals in comfort and style. Our lightweight Venon frameset combines all day comfort with exceptional lateral stiffness; perfect for long hauls and great for the occasional club race; whatever your preference the Venon VR will not disappoint!
Lightweight T700 HM-UD Carbon Frame & Fork
The NEW 2014 Venon frameset features a T700 HM-UD construction for lightweight and durability. Our tubeset has been designed with comfort in mind for century rides and performance sportives. Slender seatstays have been pre-curved for increased vertical compliance which translates into a smoother ride and reduced road vibration.
The bottom bracket area is oversized to improve lateral stiffness and improved power transfer; up front the tapered headtube increases front end stiffness for improved tracking and handling. A matching T700 HM-UD full carbon fork with tapered steerer adds comfort and enhanced steering precision. Our endurance geometry features a more relaxed riding position with the addition of slightly taller headtubes to maintain all day comfort and reduced lower back stress. This offers an optimum centralized riding position for improved stability and also enhances the overall handling characteristics.
Shimano 105 & FSA Groupset
Shimano 105 5700 shifters and derailleurs are proven performers offering slick and precise gear changes time after time. An FSA Gossamer Pro compact chainset with 50t x 34t rings offers a wide gear ratio when paired up with the 12t – 28t Tiagra cassette. Tektro R315 dual pivot brakes offer reliable, predictable stopping power. A Vitus chain catcher comes as standard on all of our carbon frame models.
Easton AXR Wheelset & Vitus Elite Finishing Kit
The new Easton AXR combines durability and stealthy looks for a great performing fit and forget wheelset. Additional enhancements include the all new V5 hubset which offers improved durability and reduced maintenance. High volume Kenda 25c tyres offer added comfort and a larger contact patch for improved grip. Vitus Elite finishing kit completes the components package. Our Elite series alloy bars, stem and seatpost provide a lightweight and dependable components package which have been colour coded to match the frame decals.
