Vitus Substance VR 2 Adventure Road Bike

Vitus Substance VR 2 Adventure Road Bike - £1,199.99

The Substance is the bike that will go anywhere you point it; on whatever surface you choose.

Featuring a T6-6061 double butted aluminium frame and carbon fork designed to take both 700c and 650b wheels & tyres, the possibilities are endless. This Substance Aluminium bikes take inspiration from their carbon and steel siblings, delivered in a more affordable package, but equally as capable.

Featuring a tapered headtube, and full T-700 UD carbon forks, the Substance steel is born tough. This bike is made for round-the-world adventure or dependable and comfortable commuting. With the addition of mounts for mudguards, luggage, and multiple bottles it’s also capable of going anywhere for any amount of time. The Substance VR-2 is fitted with Shimano’s newly released GRX 400 groupset – the world's first dedicated gravel groupset. Paired with the GRX 600 chainset, this 10 speed 2X groupset delivers a smooth and quiet drivetrain, specifically tuned for gravel / adventure riding.

The Substance VR-2 is fitted with WTB ST Light i23 TCS rims, laced to Alex Bear Pawl hubs, and fitted with big volume WTB Byway TCS 47mm tyres. 650b is perfect for adventure cycling with the large outer diameter keeping your wheels rolling over bumps, whilst the added tyre volume allows you to adjust pressures depending on the terrain for grip, comfort, and luggage weight. The finishing kit is made up of a Vitus 6061 aluminium handlebar, stem, and seat post. The handlebars feature a flat top section for added comfort on and off-road, with the Substance CRS-1 featuring a 3 degree bar flare.
