Vitus Bikes Zenium VR Road Bike
Looking for race-ready performance with all-day comfort? Look no further...
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 alloy 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 VR 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 full 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 Tiagra/FSA groupset
The Zenium VR features a Shimano Tiagra 20-speed drivetrain which provides crisp and precise shifting, time after time. An FSA Gossamer Pro compact 50t x 34t chainset and 12t-25t cassette offer a gear ratio that will cover all bases, from cyclosportive events to midweek club races.
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 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 VR delivers an optimum blend of performance and value for all-round road riding.

Vitus Bikes and Seán Kelly
In the history of the Vitus marque the name of one rider dominates – that of Seán Kelly, known to many as “The King” and regarded by many as the finest Classic rider of all time.
80% of Kelly's 193 professional victories, which included a record eight Paris-Nice wins, were achieved astride a bike bearing the Vitus badge.
Today Kelly proudly represents Vitus as brand ambassador, providing valuable insight and input into the development of our top-end road bikes and adding his name to our flagship LTD Edition Seán Kelly road bike.
2013 – Vitus sponsors An Post race team
For 2013 Vitus is pleased to extend its association with Seán Kelly by sponsoring the An Post Seán Kelly UCI Continental Race Team which will be riding Vitus Bikes at European and Pro Tour road race events.
