Vitus Bikes Zenium VRS Road Bike

Competition level spec list. Wallet-friendly price. What’s not to like?

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.

The Zenium VRS features a components list that won’t look out of place on the starting line of any midweek club race or criterium, but with compact and rider-friendly geometry it’s also your ideal companion for epic weekend centuries, charity cyclosportives or year-round training.

Triple-butted 6061 aluminium frame and 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 105/FSA groupset
Race ready performance is provided by Shimano's 105 5700 shifters and derailleurs. As technology advances many features trickle down from Dura Ace to 105 presenting an incredibly slick performer with improved aesthetics. The heart of the transmission is an FSA Gossamer Pro 50t x 34t compact chainset offering a club race friendly gear ratio that will be equally at home on longer weekend training rides.

Finishing Kit
FSA finishing kit provides a solid base for your introduction into competitive racing with no-nonsense aluminium components that will out perform many carbon offerings from similar brands. 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 VRS is the perfect base for your introduction into competitive racing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Value Great Bike Bought this bike in the sale purely as it was the best spec'd bike for the money. Its now the envy of alot of friends as it looks fab and rides great. Only disappointment was the set up, striaght out the box the gears were skipping and needed that much adjustment the cable had to be adjusted on the mech as it was to far out for the barrel adjuster. Although that's not the bikes fault, thats more CRC'S fault. Buy one you will not be disappointed. 13 September 2013

Answer: 
The majority of our complete bikes (including this Vitus) are given a PDI (Pre-Dispatch Inspection) and will arrive in a pre-build state; brakes, gears etc will have been set up and checked. You will usually only need to straighten the bars and tighten the stem, fit your seatpost/saddle and pedals. 5-10 minutes with the included multi-tool should have you out on the road.
