  • Vitus Substance VR-2 Adventure Road Bike

    Ready for high-speed adventures, this adventure road bike is engineered for gravel riding as it provides excellent comfort and control on every journey. It features a hard-wearing aluminium frame which is also double-butted, so you can benefit from its toughness on intense rides. Vitus has also added UD carbon forks to this gravel bike, which means you'll enjoy its incredible stiffness when climbing without any excess weight when descending.

    Shimano GRX Drivetrain with Hydraulic Disc Brakes

    Designed for top-performance across mixed terrains, this gravel-ready road bike is kitted out with a stunning Shimano GRX drivetrain. This makes it perfect for accelerating up to speed in seconds, with the assistance from its GRX crankset giving you tremendous torque-power on every mile. With the addition of hydraulic disc brakes, you'll also benefit from its outstanding stopping power and control during steep descents and tricky corners on this fantastic gravel bike.

    WTB ST Wheelset with WTB Byway Tyres

    Fitted with a WTB ST wheelset and WTB Byway tyres, this road bike is prepared for fast and fun adventures. Using its WTB Byway tyre's larger outer diameter, this two-wheeler delivers exceptional grip and smoothness when riding across uneven gravel surfaces. One final highlight is the Vitus Substance VR-2 Adventure Road Bike's wheels and tyres are tubeless ready. This means you can simply install tubeless valves and add sealant if you want to run tubeless (valves and sealant sold separately).

    Easy Assembly

    When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box.

    Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

    • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
    • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer’s boxes.
    • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.
