Shimano Dura Ace 9000 11-speed groupset
The Vitesse VR is available with full Dura Ace 9000 groupset, with Shimano’s flagship mechanical drivetrain having been redesigned and updated to bring 11-speed gearing to the range. Shifting action has been refined to improve response and lever feel from previous iterations, while revised aesthetics and lighter weight also contribute to the overall performance improvements. Meanwhile the newly redesigned Dura Ace brakeset delivers improved stopping power and modulation for increased confidence and handling in race conditions. A standard 53t x 39t chainset and 11tt-25t cassette underlines the Vitesse VR’s flat-out racing intent. A Vitus chain catcher comes as standard on our carbon models to reduce the risk of damaging the frame in the event of an overshift on the chainrings.
