Vitus ZX 1 EVO CRS Road Bike Ultegra (2022)

Vitus ZX 1 EVO CRS Road Bike Ultegra (2022) - £3,499.99

The latest Vitus ZX-1 has been remastered, reimagined and reengineered. Enter, the EVO. Lighter, stiffer and faster. Stripped right back to the drawing board for a ground-up overhaul.

Yes, we’ve done the testing and know that the EVO exhibits up to 45% less drag than the previous model. But that means nothing until you unleash it outside and feel it for yourself. In the world of aero bikes, amongst all the jargon and data, it’s easy to lose sight of what really matters. That to feel fast is to be fast, and you can’t feel fast in a wind tunnel. The pleasure of speed only exists in the real world. Out there on the road. The sensation of putting power through your pedals and feeling the bike surge underneath you. And the faster you go, the easier it becomes. That’s where the ZX-1 EVO excels. That’s the bike working with you as the road snakes and the wind changes. That’s aero.

The ZX-1 EVO doesn’t neglect everything for the sake of speed, since an uncomfortable rider cannot be fast and efficient. At least, not for long. Thanks to the one-piece carbon monocoque frame there are no points of weakness, no joints, so it is specifically engineered to be stiff where required and deliver comfort elsewhere, reducing harshness from the road for a more soothing ride feel. Reassuringly, there are no compromises on performance with the build. You’re getting trusted performance from Shimano’s Ultegra groupset, deep-section aero Reynolds carbon wheels and an integrated carbon stem and handlebar to keep the front end sleek. The result? A bike with a stunningly clean aesthetic that carves through the air with outstanding efficiency.

The performance geometry slots the rider into a naturally aerodynamic position, so whether racing flat-out, sprinting for road signs or charging on the front of the chaingang, the EVO gathers momentum quickly and holds speed with ease. We’ve made this bike fast. We know it rides fast. The rest is up to you.

Internal Wedge System

  • Full Monocoque Frame

    The All New ZX-1 EVO features a true monocoque frame, manufactured as a single piece. Comfort and performance go hand-in-hand, while eliminating any joins creates greater strength and result in a light weight, eye catching frame. Less aerodynamic drag, for ultimate speed when out on the open road.

  • Dual Fork Design

    We have introduced frame size specific fork geometry maintaining fit and handling characteristics across the full size curve. By adjusting the rake on the smaller sizes this ensures handling isn't compromised, whilst at the same time giving riders the same toe overlap versus the bigger frame sizes.

  • Tyre clearance

    Performance shouldn't come about at the expense of practicality, that's why the ZX-1 EVO brings 700c x 30 tyre clearance across all sizes. For added comfort and control, without compromising on speed.
