Lightweight T700 HM-UD Carbon Frame & Fork
The 2015 Venon frameset features T700 HM-UD construction for lightweight and durability. We have revised the lay-up to improve vertical compliance and enhance comfort levels without compromising the lateral stiffness and power transfer. Our tubeset has been designed with comfort in mind for century rides and performance sportives. Slender seatstays have been pre-curved for 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.
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.
Shimano Ultegra Groupset
Shimano Ultegra 6800 shifters and derailleurs are proven performers offering slick and precise gear changes time after time.
The Shimano Ultegra 6800 compact chainset with 50t x 34t rings offers a wide gear ratio when paired up with the 11t – 28t 105 cassette. Stopping power is delivered via the updated Shimano Ultegra 6800 dual pivot brakeset for predictable, dependable speed control.
A Vitus chain catcher comes as standard on all of our carbon frame models.
Fulcrum Racing 5 Wheelset & Vitus Finishing Kit
The new Fulcrum Racing 5 wheelset has been overhauled to offer a no fuss fit and forget wheelset. The rims are front and rear specific and both offer a wider 17mm internal rim width. The hubs run on sealed cartridge bearings for long life and low maintenance.
High volume Continental Grand Sport Race 25c tyres offer added comfort and a larger contact patch for improved grip.
Vitus finishing kit completes the components package. Our alloy bars and stem provide a lightweight and dependable cockpit package. A carbon seatpost further reduces road vibrations and adds improved comfort and reduced rider fatigue.
