Vitus Bikes Zenium Road Bike
Ready for real road biking? Here’s the place to start...
The 2013 Zenium range features an all-new 6061-T6 hydroformed alloy frameset which boasts improved aesthetics and mimics our top-end carbon frames in styling and geometry.
A carbon fork with tapered steerer comes as standard on all models and brings a new level of performance to the range, offering greatly improved handling and comfort.
Compact and rider-friendly geometry means the Zenium will cruise in comfort just as easily as it will sprint to the line, making it the perfect companion for club group rides, cyclosportive events, year-round training or just general leisure riding.
Triple-butted 6061 aluminium frame and HM-UD carbon fork Our new 6061-T6 aluminium frame with custom-drawn aerospace tubing delivers a ride that is light, stiff and responsive. A UD carbon fork with tapered alloy steerer reduces road buzz and provides precise and predictable handling on all road surfaces.
Shimano Sora/FSA groupset Shimano Sora shifters and derailleurs provide smooth and precise gear selections throughout the range. The FSA Omega 50t x 34t compact chainset and Shimano Tiagra 12tt-25t cassette offer a gear ratio ideally suited to training sessions, fast group rides or long, social weekend spins.
Finishing Kit FSA finishing kit provides a comfortable base for longer days in the saddle with reliable, robust aluminium components. Shimano R501 wheels are stable performers whilst the Schwalbe Lugano 25c tyres offer low rolling resistance and surefooted grip even in the wet, increasing confidence and enhancing your riding experience.
Brought to you exclusively by chainreactioncycles.com, the Vitus Zenium delivers an optimum blend of performance and value for a great introduction to road cycling.
