Vitus Vitesse 2012

For our flagship road racing and riding machine we've chosen only the very best components available today to grace a frame that carries on the Vitus heritage of innovation in design.

You are a rider who makes no compromises, and doesn't expect to have to. You make demands of your body. You demand the best from your bike.

Meet the Vitus Vitesse, our top of the range road bike designed for serious racers with serious expectations, and the zenith of our long history of frame innovation and bike design.

Built around a custom-moulded super high-modulus carbon fibre frame, the Vitesse is as beautiful to look at as it is to ride. But this is no showroom ornament – it's a race-bred powerhouse designed to be ridden hard in the most demanding of conditions, without ever reaching its limits before you do.

Lightweight High Modulus UD Carbon Frame – 950g Frame Weight
Custom-moulded super high-modulus Uni-Directional carbon fibre frame with sloping geometry for race performance and long-distance ease, featherweight with strength resulting in a comfortable and responsive ride; the Vitus Vitesse will exceed your wildest expectations!

Shimaon Dura Ace 7900 & FSA Groupset
Shimano Dura Ace 7900 groupset has been the benchmark system used by ProTour Teams the world over. Shimano is renowned for crisp and efficient gear shifting in even the worst conditions, a quality that will pay dividends on race day when a sloppy gear change can mean the difference between winning and losing! At the heart of the drivetrain is an FSA Energy 53/39 chainset providing a race ready gear ratio for tackling hills and sprints!  Braking is highly effective thanks to the dual pivot callipers providing a perfect blend of stopping power and modulation which results in better handling and increased confidence on even the steepest descents.

Finishing Kit
FSA bars, stem and seatpost provide lightweight, race proven no-nonsense components inspiring faith and confidence in this bike's true capabilities.

The wheelset on any bike can transform how the bike handles and performs. Lightweight Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheels will accelerate fast and will perform exceptionally when the road starts to climb. Handling will be enhanced on the flats and the descents with Schwalbe ZX tyres pushing you to test the limits of your abilities with new found confidence.
