At Vitus bikes we pioneered many of the technologies that have helped carbon fibre make the leap from space-age aeronautics into the pro peleton, its blend of light weight, stiffness and vibration-damping comfort being perfectly suited to the needs of the elite racer.

Now we are helping to engineer another jump for carbon – out of the hands of the professional elite and within the grasp of ordinary riders, bringing its performance advantages to the masses at a price that not long ago many would have thought impossible.

We present the Dark Plasma. Carbon fibre frame. Quality components. Top performance. Affordable price.

Don’t believe us? Check out the specs: Custom moulded high-modulus carbon frame with 12k weave finish; matching carbon fork; 18-speed Shimano Tiagra transmission including compact double chainset; lightweight Pro-Lite wheelset with Schwalbe race tyres and finishing kit from Vitus and Controltech. That’s a lot a lot of bike for your buck.

You’ll notice the difference, whatever you ride – club races and tri training, long-distance group spins or higher-level competition.

Dark Plasma. Pro-level technology for riders like you.
