  • Vitus Substance V-2 FB Gravel Bike (Sora)

    The Substance V-2 FB is a durable and lightweight gravel-optimised road bike from Vitus that features a flat handlebar for an upright sitting position and all-day riding comfort. Its Substance Aluminium frame and carbon fork offers the ideal balance for agility, control and responsive cycling at a low weight. It is also equipped with a Shimano Sora 2x9-Speed drivetrain, Tektro mechanical disc brakes and WTB ST i23 Tubeless Ready rims wrapped in Vee Rail Sport all-terrain tyres.

    Lightweight, Reliable and Stylish Gravel Bike

    The Vitus 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.

    Aluminium Frame, Carbon Fork and Flat Handlebar

    Whether embarking on a gravel riding session or simply staying light for a mixed-terrain local loop, the Substance V-2 with its flat handlebar setup is capable of adapting to suit your ride. At its core, a double-butted aluminium frame and carbon fork are tuned for comfort on long days and across varied surfaces, aided by big volume tyres that soften the bumps and add traction over rutted or loose tracks. This model is setup with a 2X Shimano Sora drivetrain but the frame is also compatible with 1X chainsets and either 700c or 650b wheels, so you can really fine-tune the bike to best fit where you are riding.

    The flat handlebar, with ergo grips, brings a touch of the upright comfort and stability of a traditional hybrid bike and pairs brilliantly with the versatile nature of the Substance frame. For longer rides with gaps between supply points, there are mounts for luggage and waterbottles, as well as for mudguards to shield you from mud and water.

    Comfortable and Versatile Gravel Race 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 Substance is more than a gravel road race bike. It broadens your horizons, delivering richer experiences and powerful lasting memories. It’s a bike that enables you to do more. It’s a bike that gives you options. The Substance 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.
