Vitus Bikes Vitesse EVO Road Bike

The evolution of a classic; developed in conjunction with the An Post Chain Reaction professional cycling team; the all NEW Vitesse EVO has been redesigned from the ground up to deliver performance; comfort and full compatibility with mechanical and electronic groupsets.

This UCI approved frameset has been raced throughout the 2014 season by the An Post Chain Reaction team in some of the most gruelling European roads including the cobbled sections of Paris/Roubaix; race tested; race proven; race ready! The Vitesse EVO features a full Shimano Ultegra groupset; Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package.

Lightweight T700 HM-UD Carbon Frame & Fork

The all NEW 2015 Vitesse EVO features a lightweight T700 HM-UD carbon construction with tubesets optimised to deliver the perfect balance of power transfer and comfort. The oversized downtube features a squared profile to maximise stiffness and power transfer; the huge BB386EVO bottom bracket and oversized chainstays improve lateral stiffness to ensure every ounce of energy is transferred from the rider to the rear wheel whilst the slender seatstays, profiled top tube and 27.2mm seatpost offer a high degree of vertical compliance which translates into enhanced rider comfort and reduced rider fatigue. 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 increased stiffness with impeccable handling and steering precision. Our race inspired geometry offers a more aggressive riding position that adds improved aerodynamics and a reduced frontal area to minimise drag. Internal cable routing further improves aerodynamics and offers clean; uncluttered lines for improved aesthetics.

Shimano Ultegra Groupset

Shimano’s Ultegra 6800 groupset offers exemplary performance. The shifters and derailleurs deliver flawless gear selections each and every time. The Ultegra compact chainset with 50t x 34t rings is paired up with an Ultegra 6800 11-speed 11t-28t cassette to provide a wide compliment of gears that will get you over alpine passes or hills you encounter on your daily rides.  The updated Ultegra 6800 brakes offer even better braking performance and excellent modulation and lever feel ensuring consistent; reliable stopping power. A Vitus chain catcher comes as standard on all of our carbon frame models.

Fulcrum Racing Quattro Wheelset & Vitus Finishing Kit

Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheels combine lightweight with superb durability to provide a great fit and forget wheelset. High volume Continental Ultra Sport II 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.
