Vitus Bikes Zenium VR Road Bike 2014

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 VR features a superlight alloy frame with a full carbon fork; 105 10 speed gearing and Easton AXR wheelset; if performance and value are your deciding factors the new Zenium VR has it covered on all fronts!

Super Light 6061-T6 Triple Butted Alloy Frame With T700 HM-UD Carbon Fork

New and improved for 2014; our 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. Our 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 105 & FSA Groupset

Shimano 105 5700 shifters and derailleurs are proven performers offering slick and precise gear changes time after time. An FSA Omega 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 reliable, predictable stopping power.

Easton AXR Wheelset & Vitus Finishing Kit

The new Easton AXR combines durability and stealthy looks for a great performing fit and forget wheelset. Additional enhancements include the all new V5 hubset which offers improved durability and reduced maintenance. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great spec for the same price as a budget bike. As I only took up cycling in april and have been using a hybrid, I wanted to go for my first road bike. I was just about to buy a Giant Defy 3 from a local bike shop discounted to around £500 which I thought was a great deal until I saw this online for £630. The bike came really quick (4 working days after ordering). Only negative was despite tightening fully, the fork was still loose, not really an issue as I have a bike repair shop 5 minutes walk from my house (who I had already intended to take my bike to), who had a look and it was simply a spacer was missing. He quickly fixed this and told me how good the bike was for the money I paid, and turns out he used to race Vitus bikes back in the 70's. Again this is my first road bike so have nothing to compare it too but have taken this out for several rides now and have to say Im really happy, its very light quick and responsive and I'm so pleased that I got this rather than a Giant with far worse spec. 16 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely love this bike. I was a bit apprehensive about it at first seeing as I didn't know too much about Vitus, but after chatting to a few friends (who are heavily into their cycling) I decided this was the bike to get. I do not have a single regret about my decision. As the bike information states, CRC can keep the price down as you're buying straight from them and I could not be happier with the quality; Easton wheels and 105 sets for this price isn't that common. A lot of the previously mentioned friends ride super expensive full-carbon road bikes, and even they were impressed. Gear changes are smooth, everything feels quality-built, and the bike is incredibly light. It turned up with a CRC allen key tool and free tasters for loads of energy goods - the usual excellent customer service. The only negatives were that the top tube had a very small chip in the paint (by small I mean small, but it was noticeable as the tube is black), and one of the corners of the plastic pedals provided was broken off. However, I very much doubt that anyone would be buying a bike like this and using those pedals, and when I pointed out these flaws to CRC they were quick to offer me a voucher to purchase a few goods from their site. As with any new bike, you make need to adjust the gearing barrels when the cables have stretched slightly. 11 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loving It I got my Vitus Zenium VR on 10th May and since then I've put up over 500km in 20 days, including 2 x 100km+ rides. The bike is responsive and gear changes very smooth, I'm really happy with the bike and would recommend it to anyone like me changing from a 16 speed "Bike2Work" scheme first bike which I only got in November. Very happy and my next bike will be a carbon Vitus. 03 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Шикарный вел Замечательный велосипед. Не могу нарадоваться. Очень радует 105 обвес. Сначала думал, как так без обозначения передач ездить, а когда начал катать, понял, ты едешь и не задумываешься о передаче просто переключаешь по нагрузке. По неровной дороге велосипед не сильно "казлит", для "российских" дорог годен. В комплектацию входят набор катафот, звонок, и полезный чёрный лак, для устранения царапин. В довесок CRC подарили немного спортпита, набор шестигранников и бутылку, правда без держалки, но всё равно приятно :) Доставили в течении месяца. Спасибо! 05 May 2014
