Description

Aero inspired, for maximum speed and efficiency.

Back in 1991 Vitus launched the original ZX1 race bike. One of the first monocoque carbon fibre race bikes to take the scene by storm, advanced manufacturing methods allowed designers to push the aerodynamic boundaries of the ZX1 design, creating a truly unique bike.

The new ZX-1 continues where Vitus left off in 1991 with a performance race ready road bike. Utilising Kamm Tail tube profiles, the Vitus designers were able to enhance aerodynamics without compromise. Creating a comfortable race bike, whilst maintaining stiffness and cross wind stability.

An asymmetric and oversized BB386EVO BB helps to maximise drive, and overall lateral stiffness. With the use of multiple carbon fibre layups Vitus have maintained a balanced power transfer on the drive and non-drive sides of the bike while under pedalling load.

The ZX-1 features flat mount brakes, and 12mm axles front and rear, with the wheels being kept securely in place with the Vitus aero Thru-Axles. The thru-axles feature a removeable lever which can be left in either wheel or removed for the full aero benefits.

The UCI approved frameset is used by UCI Continental Pro cycling team Vitus Pro Cycling p/b Brothers UK and raced by some of Britain’s top talent including multiple Olympic Champion Ed Clancy OBE.

The ZX-1 Disc is finished with the high-performance Shimano Ultegra R8050 11 speed electronic groupset, Ultegra hydraulic flat mount disc brakes, Prime Carbon Black Edition 50 tubeless ready wheels paired with Schwalbe Pro One Tubeless 25c tyres.
