Vitus Bikes Venon L Disc Road Bike 2016All new for 2016; we have brought the Venon range to the forefront of the latest technological developments to incorporate disc brakes across all models with a revised frameset which offers enhanced performance and comfort levels!The Venon features a Shimano 105 groupset; TRP Spyre disc brakes; Fulcrum Racing Sport Disc Brake wheelset and Vitus finishing kit to complete the package. Our L range of bikes have a components package that has been tailored to better suit the female form and riding position for optimum comfort and enhanced performance. Whether you are planning to tackle your first century ride or just to join the A group on your local club rides; the Venon L will help you attain your goals in comfort and style Lightweight T700 HM-UD Disc Brake Specific Carbon Frame and ForkThe all new 2016 Venon disc brake specific frameset features T700 HM-UD construction for lightweight and durability with full internal cable routing which is compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting set ups. We have completely revised the frameset to improve vertical compliance and enhance comfort levels without compromising on lateral stiffness and power transfer. The addition of slender seatstays and a 27 2mm seatpost results in increased vertical compliance which translates into a smoother ride and reduced road vibration. The bottom bracket area is oversized to improve lateral stiffness and improved power transfer; 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 comfort and enhanced steering precision; our revised lay-up further reduces road buzz to offer added comfort on rougher sections of road. We have incorporated a through axle on the front for enhanced braking performance and improved handling to counteract the brake forces that are transmitted through one side of fork. We have adopted the 100mm x 15mm front axle standards. The rear axle is 135x9mm QR but can be changed to 142x12mm with an additional dropout set which is available to purchase separately. Our endurance geometry features a more relaxed riding position with the addition of slightly taller headtubes to maintain all day comfort and reduced lower back stress. This offers an optimum centralized riding position for improved stability and also enhances the overall handling characteristics Features:Frameset: Frame: High-modulus T700 HM-UD carbon, 135 x 9mm QR axle Forks: High-modulus T700 HM-UD carbon with tapered carbon steerer, disc brake specific, 15mm x 100mm through axle Groupset: Chainset: Shimano 105 5800, 50tx34t Bottom Bracket: Shimano 105 5800 (BSA) Brake/Shift Levers: Shimano 105 5800 Front Derailleur: Shimano 105 5800, braze on Rear Derailleur: Shimano 105 5800 Cassette: Shimano 105, 11-speed, 11t-28t Chain: KMC X11, 11-speed Wheelset: Rims: Fulcrum Racing Sport Disc Brake Front Hub: Fulcrum Racing Sport Disc Brake, 100mm x 15mm QR through axle Rear Hub: Fulcrum Racing Sport Disc Brake, 135 x 9mm QR axle Spokes: Fulcrum Racing Sport Disc Brake Tyres: Continental grand sport race, 700c x 25c Components: Front Brake: TRP Spyre, 160mm rotor Rear Brake: TRP Spyre, 140mm rotor Handlebars: Vitus compact, 6061 double butted Alloy Headset: Token A38M integrated, 1.1/8″ – 1.5″ Stem: Vitus, 3D forged 6061-T6 aluminium, + / – 7 degree rise Saddle: Vitus Ladies Seatpost: Vitus UD carbon, 2D forged head with micro-adjustment, 27 2mm x 350mm Seatclamp: Vitus bolt Weight: 8.67kg/19 11lbs (size 52cm) Easy AssemblyWhen you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping.
