Description

The Vitus Zenium – The all-rounder

Ready for speedy sportives, capable commuting, or your go-to winter workhorse. The lightweight aluminium Vitus Zenium disc is a road bike that’s designed for those long haul rides, a perfect blend of comfort and performance that offers a great all round riding experience whatever your biking demands.

The 2018 Zenium’s have been created around all new alloy frame platforms, featuring slender hydroformed top tubes and skinny seat stays. This increases road compliance, adding comfort and a balanced ride, the result being reduced rider fatigue and while providing confidence inspiring handling.

The top two SL models are engineered with super light (SL) triple butted tubing, optimised for power transfer and vertical compliance to combine the best of both worlds. Oversized hydroformed down tubes and a tapered head tube culminate in razor sharp handling.

All models use a full carbon fork, made from premium high modulus weave carbon fibre, featuring a tapered steerer tube for increased steering precision, with reduced road buzz from rough road surfaces.

All new Zenium models feature the latest flat mount disc brakes, providing consistent and controllable breaking in all conditions, with bolt through axles resulting in assured handling no matter how tight the turn, or how bad the road surface.

With tyre clearance up to 28mm wide tyres the Zenium offers great all round, all road capabilities.

The Zenium workhorse credentials are supported with hidden tabs for mudguard fitment, allowing more comfort for winter training or just keeping drier for commuters.
