Vitus Vitesse An Post Team Edition Frameset

Vitus bikes have a deep heritage in the annals of racing history and are inextricably linked to Irish racing legend Sean Kelly, who is often referred to as one of the best “classics” racers of our time. Kelly notched 80% of his 193 professional victories astride a bike bearing the Vitus badge, most notably the iconic aluminium-framed Vitus 979 which he rode with distinction in several Tours de France.

The Vitus brand and Sean Kelly have once again formed a formidable connection through the An Post Chain Reaction Cycles Sean Kelly Team who have been competing at a professional level onboard our Vitus Vitesse models chalking up numerous victories along the way.

The Vitesse An Post Team Edition frameset has been officially UCI approved for use in ProTour level racing and certifies that the frame and fork meet the shape requirements set out in the UCI regulations.

Our frames are tested to and exceed European safety standards with all frames being certified to CE EN14781 which meets current safety regulations.

The frameset includes frame & forks, headset and compression device for carbon steerers.

The frame features ‘classic’ racing angles and is adorned by the An Post Chain Reaction Cycles Team colour scheme and is available in strictly limited quantities!

What is the exact colour of the frame?

Your photos suggest that the green colour on the frame is like an emerald green, but the Vitus website has photos which suggest a lime green finish. Please can you confirm which photos give a more accurate representation?

The image of this frameset on this website - Chain Reaction Cycles - shows the most accurate representation of the actual colour. It is an emerald green that closely matches the An Post colour scheme.

The question above refers to the below quote from Vitus's and your site that claims the An Team model of this frame is revised for 2014

"Our race proven frameset has been revised and updated for 2014 in conjunction with the An Post Chain Reaction Sean Kelly Team. We have used a mix of T700 and T800 HM-UD carbon and fine-tuned the carbon lay-up to increase lateral stiffness in the bottom bracket and chainstay area for improved power transfer whilst retaining the vertical compliance that gives the Vitesse a high degree of comfort on harsh road surfaces. "

Can I confirm that this does not apply to the 2013 An Team frameset currently on clearance offer here please?

Thank you

Answer: 
That is correct, yes: this 2013 version of the frame is made with T700 carbon only as per the description.

The new 2014 frames (as used on the full bike linked below) use a combination of T700 and T800 carbons for increase stiffness.

I read that team bike is different than vitus vitesse stock bike. Also that next years consumer bike will have the team bike carbon layup from this year. I see the price difference and figure it can't be that much more for only paint job. Am I right? If so I may need to purchase

Answer: 
Yes, that is correct. The team frame has a different carbon layup on the rear end giving a stiffer bottom bracket and chain stay area.

I cannot confirm as yet the details for next years Vitus range.
