Ready to take on new challenges; time to expand your horizons; enter the world of triathlon & time trial racing with the new Vitus Chrono!
All new for 2012; we introduce the Vitus Chrono TT bike. A full high-modulus Uni-Directional carbon fibre frame and forks with unlimited potential for the serious athlete, the Vitus Chrono offers true wind cheating attributes that will leave the others in its wake! From the start line of club TT races to T1 in your local triathlon event; the Vitus Chrono is ready for serious competition!
Lightweight High Modulus UD Carbon Frame
Custom-moulded super high-modulus Uni-Directional monocoque carbon fibre frame with wind cheating attributes. Wind tunnel testing has led us to develop our aero tube set and rear wheel cut out for minimal drag and increased aerodynamic performance. Internal cable routing further reduces drag and adds to the aesthetics of the frame. This super stiff frame maximizes rider input by transferring every watt of power to the back wheel without fear of energy sapping flex; the Chrono will cut through the air like a hot knife through butter!
Shimano 105 5700 Groupset
A Shimano 105 5700 groupset takes care of shifting and transmission duties with reliable, precise shifting every time. The 105 chainset creates the driving force at the heart of the transmission and ensures every ounce of energy is transmitted through the oversized bottom bracket area of the frame to the rear wheel. Braking is highly effective thanks to the dual pivot callipers providing a perfect blend of stopping power and modulation which results in better handling and increased confidence.
Vision Team alloy base bars are paired up with Vision Vector clip-on extensions offering a high degree of adjustability; allowing you to tailor your cockpit so you find the most efficient setting when in the aero position. The wheelset on any bike can transform how the bike handles and performs. The Alex560 wheelset with 50mm deep section rims and aero bladed spokes enhance the aero properties and further reduce aero drag, resulting in reduced rider fatigue over long distances. To complete the wheelset we have added Continental Ultra Race tyres which have a proven track record for performance and reliability in all conditions.
