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.

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 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.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality and finish is exceptional This is my first road bike so didn’t want to pay a lot, I did a lot of research before making my purchase and this was the best value for money given the component specs. The build quality and finish is exceptional and I was pleasantly it was pearlescent white which isn’t obvious from the photos. Normally I would part strip a bike and assemble it myself to make sure all the critical bolts are torqued to the correct specs, because this came with a PDI report and CRC claim all are checked before dispatch I didn’t feel this was necessary; after 5 miles riding the left crank arm fell off, the self extracting bolt had fallen out, after retracing my tracks I managed to find it a little worse for wear, I’ve now replaced these with SL-K cranks which makes a big difference. I would advise anyone purchasing a bike regardless of PDI to check the bike over before riding. Had it not of been for the crank falling off it would have got 5 stars. 15 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by couldn't be more delighted I know other people will spend far more on a bike- but spending that amount of money was a big deal for me but I am very pleased I did. Handles beautifully and is extremely comfortable; you just want to be out on it all the time. Had a query at one point and yet again Chain Reaction demonstrated that they are a great company to deal with. 09 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seriously understated in the descriptions! I have been looking for a mid to entry level bike for months and I finally found what I have been looking for. This bike has it all. This is possibly the most exiting and satisfying cycle related purchase I have ever made. The bike looks like a work of art, It takes off like a jet plane, it changes gear like an F1 car, It makes me want to ride even when I'm tired! Its not white btw, its shimmering pearlescent pearly metallic, deep, slightly to the left white... I'm in awe of it (and I never get exited by man-made things!) I'm keeping it in the house, its too good for a shed! Oh and for the RECORD it puts the similar priced specialized secteur and allez to bitter shame. ASTOUNDING. All topped off with the usual customer care that CRC are known for... free multi tool, bottle, pedal spanner, more alan keys and the list goes on... Vitus road bikes are amazing, get one! 04 October 2013
