    • Vitus Substance VRS-1 Adventure Road Bike 2021

  • Vitus Substance VRS-1 Adventure Road Bike

    A genuine “go anywhere” adventure bike, the Substance VRS-1 brings you the familiarity of a drop-bar road bike, but with the capabilities of an off-road bike. With an aluminium frame and carbon forks at its heart, this multi-terrain ride will keep you in control on technical trails and over the roughest ground. This is thanks to the tough and responsive frameset, which is backed up by wide 650b (27.5”) WTB wheels and tyres and a SRAM Apex groupset.

    Adventure Bike with a Lightweight and Tough Aluminium Frame

    Featuring a T6-6061 double-butted aluminium frame and carbon fork designed to take both 700c and 650b wheels & tyres, the possibilities are endless. This Substance Aluminium bikes take inspiration from their carbon and steel siblings, delivered in a more affordable package, but equally as capable.

    SRAM Apex 1x11 Speed Groupset

    Featuring a tapered headtube and full T-700 UD carbon forks, the Substance steel is born tough. This bike is made for round-the-world adventure or dependable and comfortable commuting. With the addition of mounts for mudguards, luggage and multiple bottles, it’s also capable of going anywhere for any amount of time. The Substance VRS-1 is fitted with SRAM’s Apex 1 hydraulic groupset, giving you a gear range that can cope with any terrain. X-Sync technology from the chainset and a Roller Bearing Clutch on the rear mech means your chain will always stay firmly planted, whatever the adventure.

    Wide, High-Grip WTB Gravel Tyres

    The Substance VRS-1 is fitted with WTB ST Light i23 TCS rims, laced to Alex Bear Pawl hubs and fitted with big volume WTB Venture TCS 47mm tyres. 650b is perfect for adventure cycling with the large outer diameter keeping your wheels rolling over bumps, whilst the added tyre volume allows you to adjust pressures depending on the terrain for grip, comfort and luggage weight. The finishing kit is made up of a Vitus 6061 aluminium handlebar, stem, and seat post. The handlebars feature a flat top section for added comfort on and off-road, with the Substance VRS-1 featuring a 16-degree bar flare.
