Vitus Bikes Vitesse Road Bike

“Exceptional specification for the money, and pretty much race-ready our of the box” 8/10 Outdoor Fitness (July 2014)

Read the full review HERE

The Vitus Vitesse is a race proven frameset. Featuring new Shimano Ultegra 11 speed gearing, and a lightweight and dependable components package, the new Vitus Vitesse offers pro level performance to everyday riders! During the 2013 race season Vitus racked up numerous wins across Europe and the UK through the efforts and dedication of the An-Post Chain Reaction Sean Kelly team. This collaboration has allowed us to refine our already successful Vitesse platform and fine tune it to facilitate the requirements of our professional race team. The Vitesse features the same frameset as used by Sam Bennet to win stage 5 of the 2013 Tour of Britain; race proven; race winning; race ready!

Lightweight T700/T800 HM-UD Carbon Frame & Fork – 970g Frame Weight – UCI Approved

The Vitesse 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. A matching T700 HM-UD full carbon fork with a tapered steerer has also been revised for increased front end stiffness and improved handling with pinpoint accuracy allowing you to push the boundaries on fast paced descents. Our semi-sloping race inspired geometry instils confidence with every ride to further enhance your riding experience.

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 derailleurs 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 Ultegra 11 speed cassette. Braking duties are taken care of by FSA Gossamer Pro dual pivot brakes for reliable, dependable stopping power. A Vitus chain catcher comes as standard on all of our carbon frame models.

Easton EA70 SL Wheelset & Vitus Elite Finishing Kit

Easton have overhauled their EA70 SL 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. The wheels are wrapped in Continental UltraSport II 700 x 23c rubber for low rolling resistance and predictable handling. A custom coloured Prologo Scratch Pro saddle offers comfort and performance for long days in the saddle. Vitus Elite finishing kit completes the components package. The Elite series alloy bars and stem provide a lightweight and dependable cockpit for ultimate control and comfort. The Elite carbon seatpost offers reduced weight and added comfort by reducing road buzz from uneven road surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by コストパフォーマンス最高 配送について 8月5日(火)にポチって、9日(土)00時にベルファスト集荷、17時にヒースローを飛び立ち、 11日(月)12時にDHLのおにーちゃんが、ピンポンしてました。(日本時間に換算) 同時に注文した小物(パーセルフォース+日本郵便)より1日早かった。 荷物の状態 箱の破損、変形はほとんど無し。保護材は最小限ながら中身に輸送時の傷は無し。フレームの傷もよく調べたが、全く無し。 自転車の組み立て、調整 ホイールの振れは無し。後ディレイラーは狂っていたので、再調整した。シートピラーに仮組み時にグリグリした深いキズが入っていたが、短足なのでピラー内に隠れて問題なし。 外観 カラーリングはかっこいい。塗装も上質。シートピラー側のボトルホルダーにロングボトルが入らないのは不満。 走ってみて 軽さを実感、加速が鋭い。ハンドリングが鋭敏なので、ハンドルの上に手を載せて、のんびり走っていると少しフラフラする。 レースマシンは、がっちり握ってガシガシ走れ、ということです。 まとめ 配送事故や組み立て不良など海外通販の懸念は心配なし。 円安で海外通販のメリットが減少しているが、この製品に関してはコスパ最高です。 31 August 2014

I might be interested in trying the new 11-32t which would require the long cage rear derailleur, hence the question.
Also, what cassette is currently installed ? It says 11-25t in the description, but 11-28t in the specs.

Answer: 
This bike comes supplied with the Shimano 6800 11-28t Cassette and the Short Cage Derailleur.

The capacity on this derailleur would not be able to handle a 11-32t cassette but could be upgraded to a longer cage and would function fine with the shifters currently on the bike.

However as our bikes are supplied to our customers as they were received by ourselves; any drivetrain modifications would have to be arranged by yourself, or installed by your local bike shop.
