Vitus Bikes Energie VR Cyclo X Bike – Rival 1x11The Vitus Energie VR can be used as a Cyclo-cross race bike, a hardcore winter training bike or all season commuter. It’s your one bike for all occasions Cyclo-cross was once the sole preserve of hardened racers who wanted to maintain the competitive edge throughout the winter months, but in recent years the sport has exploded into the mainstream with races cropping up every weekend throughout Europe and the UK alike The Energie features a tough 6061-T6 alloy frame, a full carbon fork with a tapered carbon steerer and a 15mm through axle configuration for improved tracking. A 27 2mm seatpost improves comfort, while revised geometry provides a longer top tube and shorter stem combination to improve handling The Energie comes equipped with a race ready single ring set up built around the SRAM Rival 1 Hydro groupset that combines a wide ratio cassette with a single ring X-SYNC 40t chainring. Rival hydraulic disc brakes, a Tubeless-Ready WTB Frequency CX Team/Novatec wheelset and a Vitus finishing kit complete the package Our Cyclo-cross specific frameset features a triple-butted hydroformed tubeset with increased tyre and mud clearance for high volume Cyclo-cross tyres. Cable routing has been specifically designed to prevent ingress of mud and water and to increase comfort when shouldering the bike during Cyclo-cross race situations.
