The 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. Vitus 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.
Vitus have incorporated through axles front and rear for enhanced braking performance and improved handling to counteract the brake forces which are transmitted through one side of the frame and fork. vitus 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.
Vitus's 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.
Light action Vivid Shifting is just one of many features taken from Shimano’s top end groupsets, making the Ultegra 11 speed 6800 groupset a performance option for the masses.
The shifters and derailleurs incorporate Shimano’s Vivid Shift technology, with a light but positive feel all the way through the 11 speed drivetrain, giving you the gear you want, when you want it, with the minimum of effort.
With its two piece hollow axle design, the Shimano Hollowtech II chainset is both stiffer and lighter than a square taper chainset. Mounting the large diameter bearings outboard of the bottom bracket shell also provides increased stiffness and bearing life over standard cartridge units. With 50/34 compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence.
Using the all new Shimano BR505 dropbar hydraulic disc brakes give the Zenium the stopping power it needs down the hills. The dual piston caliper ensures even brake wear and a greater performance. Its index shifting mechanism offers the 11 speed drivetrain an economical brake/gear lever but a smooth and elegant gear change.
Finishing the Venon off is a collection of own brand parts from Vitus. Using a compact bar, a 3D forged alloy stem, Carbon 27.2mm Vitus seatpost and a Vitus road specific saddle. A great, light-weight finishing kit to top the Venon off.

First emerging as a frame builder in 1970s France, Vitus Bikes played a pivotal role in pioneering the design and manufacture of lugged and bonded aluminum frames, the most iconic being the 979, groundbreaking at the time and still prized among collectors today. In 1982 we engineered and developed the 979 Carbone, one of the very first frames to take carbon fiber technology from the aerospace industry and apply it to bikes. Their tradition of innovation continued throughout subsequent decades with frames which included the 1991 ZXI monocoque carbon frame, the spirit of which lives on in their latest generation of monocoque road bikes. Without exception, each of the bikes – from their singlespeed commuter to the high-end carbon road model – won plaudits for their ride quality, build and great value. The reviews confirmed what they knew all along, and they intend to improve on these already test-winning models as Vitus push forward with the development of this great brand of bikes. “Credit has to be due to a brand that has come back from the ashes and rather than milk the prestige of the old days, has set its sights on the biggest players on the scene.” CYCLIST magazine. Vitus bikes have been tested in many of the top cycling titles and websites across all disciplines. Their bikes have won group tests across Europe and are regarded as some of the best on the market.

Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
