Super Light 6061-T6 Triple Butted Alloy Frame With T700 HM-UD Carbon Fork
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 & FSA Groupset
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.
Vitus Wheelset & Finishing Kit
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.
