  • Vitus E-Substance Alloy Gravel eBike (Apex)

    The Vitus E-Substance E-Bike 1X Apex is an efficiency, versatile and stylish electric bike (E-Bike) that is ideal gravel racing and off-road exploring. It features a strong and lightweight aluminium frame and carbon forks, giving the perfect balance of reliability, strength and agility at a low weight. It also is fitted with a Fazua Ride 50 Trail motor drive that provides a pedal-assisted push when you need it. And a SRAM Apex 1x11-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 10-42 Tooth cassette and hydraulic disc brakes offers fast gear shifting and exceptional all-weather stopping power.

    The Vitus E-Substance loads your ride with freedom and choice. It expands your world, opening up new possibilities to ride and explore where otherwise you might not have looked. Unshackled from the same old routes, each ride reveals new ways ahead, like a fresh map - that bridleway to who-knows-where, the gravel track through the woods or the rougher shortcut that you know is quicker but that other bikes couldn’t handle.

    SRAM Apex 11-Speed Groupset and Fazua Ride 50 Trail Motor Drive

    Whether embarking on a fast gravel race or simply staying light for a mixed-terrain local loop, the E-Substance is capable of adapting to suit your ride. At its core, a robust aluminium frame and carbon fork are tuned for versatility, aided by the compact Fazua electric drive system with three assistance levels up to 250 watts. The latest top-tube controller lets you easily manage performance and with everything cleanly integrated, the Substance retains its modern look. Paired with SRAM’s reliable Apex 1X drivetrain, the frame is also compatible with 700c or 650b wheels, so you can fine-tune the setup to best fit where you are riding. For tough rides where water, food and spares might be hard to come by, rack mounts enable you to load up with whatever’s required to reach the next supply point.

    Versatile Gravel E-Bike

    This isn’t simply about the same cliches of getting off the beaten track or going in search of the road less travelled, because the E-Substance is more than a gravel road bike. Retaining the essence of what the Substance stands for, the addition of the electric drive system simply opens up the possibility for you to do more. It’s a bike that gives you options. The Substance family empowers a new mindset, one that entices you to break away from routine and to ride where you want to ride, unrestricted.

    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 and plastic pedals 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 balance 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 balance 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.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a SMALL BOX.

    This video demonstrates assembly from a LARGE BOX.

    Please note that due to ongoing issues in the global bike supply chain, manufacturers may substitute certain component items due to availability. In this situation, they will be replaced with the same quality or better performing parts.
