High performance aluminium has been the staple of club racers and long distance mile munchers for many years, and rightfully so; with low weight and supreme durability at a fraction of the cost of carbon counterparts; what’s not to like! The Zenium platform delivers performance and durability at an unbelievable price; super light alloy frame; full carbon fork; Shimano Tiagra shifters & derailleurs; 25c tyres for added comfort and grip; unbridle your passion and step up to the next level with the new Zenium!
New and improved for 2014; the all new super light 6061-T6 triple butted alloy frameset with smooth welds has been optimised for power transfer and vertical compliance to combine the best of both worlds; up front a tapered headtube and oversized hydroformed tubing culminate in razor sharp handling; the oversized PF30 BB enhances power transfer to the rear wheel ensuring every ounce of energy is transmitted to the road. The semi-sloping endurance geometry and slender seatstays increase vertical compliance adding comfort and a balanced ride resulting in reduced rider fatigue and confidence inspiring handling. The T700 HM-UD full carbon fork features a tapered carbon steerer for increased steering precision with reduced road buzz from rough road surfaces.
Shimano Tiagra shifters and derailleurs offer excellent performance and great value for money. An FSA Vero compact chainset with 50t x 34t rings offers a wide gear ratio when paired up with the 12t – 28t Tiagra cassette. Tektro R315 dual pivot brakes offer dependable braking performance.
The Vitus wheelset features semi-aero rims which are laced onto lightweight alloy hubs. The rims have a 30mm V profile for improved aerodynamics and reduced drag whilst a CNC machined braking surface ensures consistent braking performance. Continental Grand Sport Race 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 which have been colour coded to match the frame decals.
