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.
