Revised and re-engineered for 2014; the new Vitus Mach 3 platform is the flat-barred city sibling of the road race focused drop bar Razor range; with a more prone and upright riding position for increased comfort and better visibility over cars and other city traffic. Need to add pannier racks and mudguards; not a problem; the Mach 3 has mounts for both to further increase versatility. Ideally suited as a fast city commuter or a fitness and training bike, the Mach 3 will also turn its hand to day touring and distance riding, with the emphasis on mile-munching pace without the back-aching pain.
The lightweight 6061-T alloy frame has been designed with all year riding and commuting in mind. Up front Vitus have added a T700 HM-UD carbon bladed fork with alloy steerer to reduce road buzz from rough sections of road for increased rider comfort. They've added ample clearance for mud guards and added eyelets for ease of fitment on both frame and fork. Additionally included are pannier rack mounts to broaden the bikes capabilities as an all rounder for commuting and social riding. The Vitus comfort geometry offers a more relaxed riding position which translates into increased comfort and reduced rider fatigue, a feature that we have come to appreciate ourselves when making early morning commutes and carrying a bag on our back.
Shimano Claris shifters have been paired up to Microshift derailleurs for dependable gear selections; a compact chainset with 34t x 50t rings offer a wide gear ratio in conjunction with the 12t-25t cassette which will see you through weekend group rides and over any hill you encounter on your daily commute to the office. Tektro R315 dual pivot long reach brakes provide predictable braking performance and lots of clearance for mudguards.
The Vitus wheelset features semi-aero rims which are laced onto lightweight alloy hubs. The rims have a 30mm V profile for improved aerodynamics and reduced drag whilst a CNC machined braking surface ensures consistent braking performance. High volume Kenda 25c tyres offer added comfort and a larger contact patch for improved grip. Vitus finishing kit completes the components package. Our alloy bars, stem and seatpost provide a lightweight and dependable components package.
