The Vitesse EVO CRX eTap AXS is the lightest bike in the Vitus range – a true pro race bike. Designed with minimal weight to charge up climbs, efficient stiffness to sprint and accelerate, and all-day comfort to glide through rough road surfaces with minimal fatigue, this bike will leave you fresh to challenge for the finish line.
We worked collaboratively with the professional UCI Continental Pro cycling team, An-Post CRC throughout the design and test phase of the Vitesse Evo, with a comprehensive testing and feedback programme. This allowed our designers to optimise the Vitesse EVO, achieving the perfect balance of ride characteristics to make this bike competitive in all conditions- from the spring classics, to the high mountains of Europe. The Vitesse EVO is a proven, professional race winning platform, and is the bike of choice for professional team, Vitus Pro Cycling in 2020.
The Vitesse EVO is now a disc brake only frameset, with full internal cable routing, and a UCI certified frame and fork. With semi-compact geometry and lots of flexibility in its set-up, you’re guaranteed to get the position you want. The Vitesse EVO is renowned for its composed handling being both balanced and stable, yet nimble enough to pilot through a bunch sprint.
The Vitesse Evo CRX eTap Disc is directly inspired by the race-winning bikes of Vitus Pro Cycling. This race bike is fitted with SRAM’s newly launched Red eTap AXS HRD 12 speed groupset, as used on the team’s own race bikes. Red eTap AXS sits at the top of the SRAM performance tree, and features industry leading technology to give you every possible benefit from a wireless electronic groupset. This includes modern gearing, advanced chain management, and easy personalisation.
The CRX eTap model gives you both wireless electronic shifting and hydraulic disc braking: the best of both worlds. The SRAM Red eTap AXS rear derailleur capitalizes on X-Range gearing technology for enhanced range and chain management. Carbon cranks and SRAM’s new Flattop chain make this one of the most technologically advanced, lightest bikes that Vitus have ever produced.
The race-proven and UCI approved Prime Carbon Black Edition 38 tubeless ready wheels feature a 38mm deep aero rim section, providing the perfect balance between low weight and aerodynamics. The Black Edition 38 combines this with a wider rim profile to create a more linear contour between the tyre and rim interface. They are paired with Hutchinson Fusion Five Performance Tubeless 25c tyres, maximising aero gains and comfort. The new Vitus Switch axles give you the option to leave the lever handle firmly secured in either wheel, or remove it for extra weight saving and aero gains.
The cockpit is built with a finishing kit from industry leaders in innovation and technology, Zipp. Their Service Course SL 70 Ergo bars feature an ultra-lightweight hydroformed shape, and come fitted to the performance orientated, lightweight Zipp Service SL Course stem- 3D forged, and CNC machined for maximum stiffness.
Finishing this bike off is a matching Zipp Service Course SL layback seat post, fitted with a versatile and super comfortable Prologo Kappa EVO PAS saddle.
