Vitus Bikes Venon VRS Road Bike

All day comfort; relaxed geometry; lightweight full carbon performance and a wishlist components package; the all NEW Vitus Venon has it all! The all NEW 2014 Venon has been redesigned from the ground up to offer ultimate comfort; ultimate performance; ultimate enjoyment! If century rides and Gran Fondos are your thing, the Venon VRS will surpass your greatest expectations!

Lightweight T700 HM-UD Carbon Frame & Fork

The NEW 2014 Venon frameset features a T700 HM-UD construction for lightweight and durability. It's tubeset has been designed with comfort in mind for century rides and performance sportives. Slender seatstays have been pre-curved for increased vertical compliance which translates into a smoother ride and reduced road vibration. The bottom bracket area is oversized to improve lateral stiffness and improved power transfer; up front the tapered headtube increases front end stiffness for improved tracking and handling. A matching T700 HM-UD full carbon fork with tapered steerer adds comfort and enhanced steering precision. Our endurance geometry features a more relaxed riding position with the addition of slightly taller headtubes to maintain all day comfort and reduced lower back stress. This offers an optimum centralized riding position for improved stability and also enhances the overall handling characteristics.

Shimano Ultegra & FSA Groupset

Trickle down technology from Shimano’s top tier Dura Ace groupset now features on the new Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 speed shifters and deraileurs with improved ergonomics and enhanced shifting performance. An FSA Gossamer Pro compact chainset with 50t x 34t rings offers a wide gear ratio when paired up with the 11t – 28t Ultegtra 11 speed cassette. Tektro R540 dual pivot brakes offer reliable, predictable stopping power. A Vitus chain catcher comes as standard on all of our carbon frame models.

Easton EA70 Wheelset & Vitus Elite Finishing Kit

Easton have overhauled their EA70 wheelset to bring it bang up to date with the latest trend for wider rim profiles. The rims now feature a wider 17.5mm (internal) rim width which provides a stiffer rim and alters the profile of the tyre to provide a larger contact patch for extra grip when cornering hard. Additional enhancements include the all new V5 hubset which offers improved durability and reduced maintenance. High volume Kenda 25c tyres offer added comfort and a larger contact patch for improved grip. Vitus Elite finishing kit completes the components package. Our Elite series alloy bars, stem and seatpost provide a lightweight and dependable components package which have been colour coded to match the frame decals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very light frame and forks fitted out with top notch components. Delivery was a bit protracted because it was sent from Northern Ireland by DHL to Gatwick , then to Toulouse then by road to Lyon then back to Toulouse by road then by road north of Toulouse to me. It arrived safely.I had to reset the rear and front derailleurs and then it was a joy to ride. I live in a hilly are and was a bit worried changing from a triple chain ring to a compact . I should not have worried because I find it is very quick and hills suddenly seem a lot less daunting than before. I changed the seat post to FSA carbon fibre and the ride is much improved. For the money it is an exceptional bike . 12 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great bike at a real world price I dithered over this purchase for some time - was buying something as important in terms of fit and feel unseen a good idea - but I needn't have worried. The 55cm version is just right and I was able to satisfy myself of this before purchase by use of the very comprehensive Vitus size/fitting guide. The bike arrived promptly and well-packed. Set-up is simple and no more than anyone will be doing as part of routine maintenance. The quality of the frame and fittings is top notch and, I think, a bargain at the price. My use of the machine so far has been restricted to a few short rides but my opinion is that it is light and responsive, and seems to soak-up the effects of the poor roads in my area rather better than I had anticipated; certainly better than my old Giant. I'm looking forward to getting onto better roads and covering some miles before the good weather ends. All in all, I'm very impressed so far. It's certainly brought a smile to my face! 02 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bike at an amazing price When I signed up for the Ronde Van Vlanderen cyclo last year I didn't know what bike I would be riding, I had a few choices but I wanted something that would be comfortable, the usual suspects from manufactures that have a model "aimed at longer sportive and Cobbles" were in the frame, having sized up my requirements I started looking at the Spec's available for around £1500, this was after all going to replace my very old Alloy training bike, but it needed to be up to the punishment that Belgium was going to dish out. This is when the Vitus came to my attention, a brand I remembered being used to good effect by a Mr Kelly when I was still at school. When I called CRC to ask about frame size on the Venon range the adviser said that he had been riding one and he didn't think that I would be disappointed with it, for my intended use. At the end of the day I was able to "save" £300, and I got Ultegra 11 speed with a mix of FSA and own brand components, the Frame and fork are Full carbon and the ride they deliver is excellent. When it arrived all I had to do was tighten the stem up and remove the protective tape. To start with I fitted some SKS race guards to protect me and my new purchase from the worst of the road spray, they do help to protect your drive train through the winter months. The compliance of the frames seat stays and ample clearance for the 25 mm tires made the rough country lanes I do most of my riding on feel almost smooth. As the weather improved the guards came of and the true character of the bike came to light, it is capable of delivering a brisk ride. At RVV we managed the Long route with an average of over 30 kph and I had a huge grin all the way round. Would I recommend this bike,Yes, without hesitation, if you want to eat the miles and do it in comfort, be a little different from the "Run of the mill" Vitus Venon will let you stand out from the crowd. I could go on but I'm now off for a ride ;-) 17 June 2014
