  • Vitus Bikes Vitesse Evo Road Bike 2016

    The Vitesse EVO is our flagship full carbon, UCI accredited bike. Delivering top end performance the Vitesse Evo is equally comfortable at the sharp end of the peloton as it is covering 200km sportives and long days in the saddle.

    The Vitesse EVO features a full Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset; Mavic Ksyrium 25 WTS and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package.

    Raced throughout the 2014 & 2015 seasons by the An Post Chain Reaction UCI Continental Team in some of the most gruelling European roads including the cobbled sections of Paris-Roubaix; the Evo is truly race tested; race proven; race ready!

    Lightweight T700 HM-UD Carbon Frame and Fork – UCI Approved

    The Vitesse EVO features a lightweight T700 HM-UD carbon construction with tubesets optimised to deliver the perfect balance of power transfer and comfort. The oversized downtube features a squared profile to maximise stiffness and power transfer.

    The huge BB386EVO bottom bracket and oversized chainstays improve lateral stiffness to ensure every ounce of energy is transferred from the rider to the rear wheel whilst the slender seatstays, profiled top tube and 27.2mm seatpost offer a high degree of vertical compliance which translates into enhanced rider comfort and reduced rider fatigue. Up front the tapered headtube increases front end stiffness for improved tracking and handling. A matching T700 HM-UD full carbon fork with tapered steerer adds increased stiffness with impeccable handling and steering precision.

    Our race inspired geometry offers a more aggressive riding position that adds improved aerodynamics and a reduced frontal area to minimise drag.
    Internal cable routing further improves aerodynamics and offers clean; uncluttered lines for improved aesthetics.

    “Astonishing performance for a £1,900 bike – it’ll put a maniacal grin on your face!”

    “It’s hard to fault the Vitus Vitesse Evo when it comes to value. £2,000 for a bike with a pro-level frame and a faultless groupset seems like a good deal to me.”

    “The Vitesse Evo is killer value …a pro level frameset, Ultegra groupset and Ksyrium wheels for just over £1,700? That’s ridiculous.”
