New for 2015 Vitus bikes are offering framesets on our most popular models which allows you to build your bike to your own personal preference and requirements.
The evolution of a classic; developed in conjunction with the An Post Chain Reaction professional cycling team; the all NEW Vitesse EVO has been redesigned from the ground up to deliver performance; comfort and full compatibility with mechanical and electronic groupsets. This UCI approved frameset has been raced throughout the 2014 season by the An Post Chain Reaction team in some of the most gruelling European roads including the cobbled sections of Paris/Roubaix; race tested; race proven; race ready!
The all NEW 2015 Vitesse EVO features a lightweight T700 HM-UD carbon construction with tubesets optimised to deliver the perfect balance of power transfer and comfort. The oversized downtube features a squared profile to maximise stiffness and power transfer; the huge BB386EVO bottom bracket and oversized chainstays improve lateral stiffness to ensure every ounce of energy is transferred from the rider to the rear wheel whilst the slender seatstays, profiled top tube and 27.2mm seatpost offer a high degree of vertical compliance which translates into enhanced rider comfort and reduced rider fatigue. 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 increased stiffness with impeccable handling and steering precision.
Our race inspired geometry offers a more aggressive riding position that adds improved aerodynamics and a reduced frontal area to minimise drag.
Internal cable routing further improves aerodynamics and offers clean; uncluttered lines for improved aesthetics.
The derailleur hanger is user replaceable in the event of a crash or mishandling during transit.
