Vitus Bikes Energie VR Carbon Bike

Back with a vengeance for 2014; meet the new and improved Vitus Energie VR; a revised frameset with full internal cable routing; disc brake specific and tons of clearance for high volume CX tyres and increased mud clearance; the all NEW Energie VR is a thoroughbred racer that will excel in any conditions! Cyclo-cross was once the sole preserve of hardened racers who wanted to maintain the competitive edge throughout the winter months but in recent years the sport has exploded into the mainstream with races cropping up every weekend throughout Europe and the UK alike! The Energie VR is Vitus' high end full carbon cyclo-cross race bike and has been designed specifically to meet the demands of all out cyclo-cross assaults! This high performance race oriented steed will be equally at home on longer winter training rides or anywhere in between. The increased strength and tyre clearance also makes this a phenomenal bike for back country roads and forest parks alike, when you take in to consideration that numerous Pro Tour teams use cyclo-cross bikes during the early season classics races you can really appreciate the potential and diversity that this bike can offer!

High-Modulus T700 HM-UD Carbon Frame & Fork

The all NEW cyclo-cross disc brake specific frameset features a High-Modulus T700 HM-UD Carbon construction for superior strength to weight with increased tyre and mud clearance for high volume cyclo-cross tyres. Full internal cable routing has been specifically designed to prevent ingress of mud and water and to increase comfort when shouldering the bike during cyclo-cross race situations. A High-Modulus T700 HM-UD Carbon fork features a tapered carbon steerer and beefed-up fork blades to ensure precise tracking and steering with the ability to handle the rigours of competitive cyclo-cross racing. Bottle cage mounts have been added to expand the potential for all year multi-purpose use.

Shimano Ultegra & FSA Groupset

Shimano Ultegra 6700 shifters and derailleurs offer flawless performance even in the most challenging cross conditions.  An FSA Gossamer CX chainset with cross specific 46t x 36t rings offers a wide gear ratio when paired up with the 12t – 28t cassette. Tektro Lyra mechanical disc brakes with 160mm front & 140mm rear rotors offer superior braking performance in muddy CX race conditions. Mechanical disc brakes also present a better learning curve for on-road training rides permitting riders to get accustomed to the superior stopping power of disc brakes. A Vitus chain catcher comes as standard on all of the carbon frame models.

Alex A-Class CX-Disc Wheelset & Vitus Elite Finishing Kit

A durable wheelset is mandatory for CX race duties and the Alex A-Class CXD won’t disappoint. The rim profile features a 17mm internal width with a depth of 26mm; the semi-aero profile offers a smaller surface area for mud to sit on which will help keep the rotational weight to a minimum! These are laced onto Formula disc hubs which run on sealed cartridge bearings.   Kenda Kwicker CX tyres are the perfect choice for muddy UK and European race courses. Vitus finishing kit completes the components package. The alloy bars, stem and seatpost provide a lightweight and dependable components package which have been colour coded to match the frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb cross bike/ winter training bike I bought this bike in August 2013 as a winter bike/ cross bike to do the 3peaks cyclocross race on. It is incredible value (the previous model did not come with disc brakes) and handled the 3peaks and a lot of off road riding in the Dales with ease. I found it very comfortable and agile when racing and riding on it. Even carrying the bike up Simon's fell wasn't uncomfortable as the frames tubing is quite flat around that area. The only problem I have had with it was when doing a mountain bike sportive where a stick got caught in my wheel and ripped the rear mech off and damaged some of the paint work. Fortunately the rear mech was okay and sourcing a new rear mech hanger was easy enough. 09 June 2014

The Gossamer CX crank runs on a BB-6000 series bracket, which uses replaceable sealed bearings. We have the bearings available as spares; the BB-6000 uses the MR102 bearings.

You could use a 38c tyre width with this bike, this would be the widest tyre size that would be recommended.
