Energie VR Cyclo X Bike

The Energie VR takes performance to new levels with the ultra trick SRAM Force CX1 groupset; a frameset with full internal cable routing; disc brake specific and tons of clearance for high volume CX tyres and increased mud clearance; the 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 our high end full carbon PRO 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

Our 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.

SRAM Force CX1 Groupset

SRAM’s 1 x MTB groupsets have been heralded as the way forward for high performance off-road riding and racing; it was only a matter of time until this technology made its way onto the CX market! The combination of the 40t X-Sync chainring which features wide/narrow teeth and mud-specific cutaways and the CX1 type 2 clutch rear derailleur gives added security and eliminates the chances of chain derailment when putting the hammer down over rough and uneven ground; a feature that will appeal to all ardent CX racers out there. The 11t-32t cassette provides a wide gamut of gears to choose from and will be more than enough for any CX race situation.

WTB CX Team i19 Disc Wheelset & Vitus Finishing Kit

A strong but lightweight wheelset will transform how a bike handles and gets up to speed; WTB CX Team i19 rims provide both of these attributes and combined with the WTB Cross Wolf tyres are also UST tubeless ready. The i19 rims feature a semi-aero profile offering 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 and paired with WTB’s dual compound Cross Wolf tyres for enhanced performance; Vitus finishing kit completes the components package. Our alloy bars, stem and seatpost provide a lightweight and dependable package that has been colour coded to match the frame decals.
