Vitus Energie VR

Vitus Energie VR - £1,299.99

A highly versatile Cyclocross machine for commuting, training, and racing.

With SRAM Rival components, a durable and light alloy frame, carbon forks and a WTB ST i21/Novatec, disc wheelset, we have built the Vitus Energie VR model to tear up the toughest CX courses and to light up your training rides or winter commutes. Winning “Best in test” in Cycling Weekly in 2019 the Energie VR has what it takes to help you achieve your best!

Built around a triple-butted 6061-T6 alloy frame and a full carbon fork, this ultra-capable ride provides excellent control and comfort on all terrain types. To improve the comfort even further there’s a 27.2mm seatpost and the carefully tuned geometry, which includes a longer top tube and shorter stem work together to improve handling. These features will more than prove their worth when navigating built-up areas on your commute or on tight and technical courses.

Equipped with a race-ready single ring chainset with an X-SYNC 40T chainring and a drivetrain that’s organised around SRAM’s Rival 1 Hydro groupset, this bike is designed to thrive on the loosest, muddy ‘cross courses. The Rival hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless-ready WTB ST i21 CX/Novatec wheelset and Vitus’ own finishing kit complete this solid package. There are even bottle cage and mudguard mounts to expand the potential for all year multi-purpose use.

Vitus has obsessed over every single detail with the Energie VR’s cyclocross race-ready frameset. From the much-increased mud and tyre clearance to the internal cable routing to prevent mud and water ingress and increase shouldering comfort, this bike has it all. Boosting the performance further still, the beefed-up blades on the high-modulus T700 HM-UD full carbon forks ensure precise tracking and steering to help you to handle the rigours of competitive cyclocross racing.
