The Vitesse EVO features a lightweight T700 HM-UD carbon construction with tubesets optimised to deliver the perfect balance of power transfer and comfort. The oversized downtube features a squared profile to maximise stiffness and power transfer; the huge BB386EVO bottom bracket and oversized chainstays improve lateral stiffness to ensure every ounce of energy is transferred from the rider to the rear wheel whilst the slender seatstays, profiled top tube and 27.2mm seatpost offer a high degree of vertical compliance which translates into enhanced rider comfort and reduced rider fatigue. Up front the tapered headtube increases front end stiffness for improved tracking and handling.
With the same electronic shifting technology used on Shimano’s top of the line Dura Ace groupset and only a minor weight penalty over its more expensive sibling, it is no wonder the 11 speed 6870 Di2 Ultegra groupset has been so highly rated in the cycling press. Shimano’s Di2 electronic shifting is as precise and responsive as it gets, giving you the gear you want, when you want it, every time, with the minimum of effort. The Di2 system is fully programmable with features such as multishift, allowing you to hold a shift button down for a full sweep through the cassette.
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.
Ultegra Dual pivot brake calipers provide excellent braking power, with angle adjustable pads to ensure perfect pad alignment. A quick release lever aids installation and removal of wheels, for transportation or puncture repairs.
The Mavic Ksyrium 25 wheelset is loved by many because of the performance it offers & the technology used within their manufacture. Great strength & durability are key factors as-well-as being lightweight so making them ideal for the Emitter. To finish the wheels of and to give you the ultimate rolling performance they have fitted Mavic Yksion tyres in 700x25C to offer that little more grip and reassurance around corners.
Finishing the Vitesse off is a collection of parts from FSA. Using a FSA compact bar, a Gossamer Pro stem, Carbon 27.2mm S-LK seatpost and a Vitus road specific saddle. A great, light-weight finishing kit to top the Vitesse 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 aluminium 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 fibre 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.
