RRP: £


Meet the brand new Vitus Blitz 1, a short travel full-suspension rig with a top-drawer components package that makes competitive riding a genuine option.

Far from being a one-trick racing pony, the Blitz 1 is a true trail thoroughbred.

Based on the same 6061 hydroformed alloy frame as its Blitz 2 little brother, the Blitz 1 lightens the load with an upgraded component spec for increased performance.

If you’re the kind of rider whose season runs the gamut – from club XC races and marathons to all-day epics with friends; from snatched sessions in the local woods to trail centre weekends – then the Blitz 1 is the bike for you.

Get out there and ride.

Hydroformed Multi-Butted 6061 Aluminium Frame & RockShox Reba RL Forks
Our lightweight hydroformed multi-butted, heat treated 6061 aluminium frame features 100mm of rear wheel travel via a Four-Bar V-Link activated suspension platform which eliminates pedal-bob yet remains fully active at all times. Suspension travel is controlled by a RockShox RT air shock offering infinite adjustability and silky smooth performance. All pivots run on sealed cartridge bearings providing supple performance with low maintenance. A replaceable derailleur hanger comes as standard.

A RockShox Reba RL fork offers 120mm of buttery smooth, infinitely adjustable travel. A tapered steerer and 15mm Maxle Lite thru-axle means precise, positive tracking through corners and rock gardens or any other obstacle the trail throws at you!

SRAM Groupset
The SRAM groupset combines X9 shifters and derailleurs with a SRAM S1400 2×10 chainset which combines lightweight with a full complement of gears to get you over the steepest of climbs with ease. Stopping power is provided by Avid Elixir 3 hydraulic disc brakes with a 180mm rotor up front and a 160mm rotor at the rear to ensure positive, controllable braking. A lightweight Fulcrum Red Power wheelset presents XC performance with All-Mountain capabilities offering fast acceleration and durability in a race ready wheelset. Schwalbe Nobby Nic tyres combine predictable handling with low rolling resistance for complete confidence in all conditions. To complete the package we’ve added Truvativ Stylo finishing kit, lock-on grips and a lightweight but comfortable X-Lite saddle.
