Vitus Bikes Venon VR Disc Road Bike – Carbon UltegraThe Venon offers all day comfort and our endurance fit geometry, designed with long haul sportives in mind but equally at home on weekend rides or midweek commuting to work!If daylong rides and Gran Fondos are your thing, the Venon VR will surpass your greatest expectations! Venon VR features a Shimano Ultegra groupset with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, FSA Vision Team 30 Disc Brake wheelset and a Vitus finishing kit to complete the package Lightweight T700 HM-UD Disc Brake Specific Carbon Frame & ForkThe Venon disc brake specific frameset features T700 HM-UD construction for light weight 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 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 through axles front and rear for enhanced braking performance and improved handling to counteract the brake forces that are transmitted through one side of the frame and fork. We have adopted the 100mm x 15mm front and 142mm x 12mm rear axle standards. The rear dropouts can be changed to alter the rear axle configuration to 135mm x 9mm QR via the use of our QR 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 centralised riding position for improved stability and also enhances the overall handling characteristics.
