Carbon fibre frame. Quality components. Top performance. Affordable price. We present the Vitus Dark Plasma.
At Vitus bikes we pioneered many of the technologies that have driven the development of carbon fibre bicycle frames. 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.

Don’t believe us? Check out the specs; full UD carbon frame and forks with Shimano and FSA components; that’s 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.

Lightweight High Modulus UD Carbon Frame – 950g Frame Weight
Custom-moulded super high-modulus Uni-Directional carbon fibre frame with sloping geometry for race performance and long-distance ease, featherweight with strength resulting in a comfortable and responsive ride; the Vitus Dark Plasma; Pro-level technology for riders like you.

Shimano & FSA Components
A bike can be defined by the sum of its component parts and the Dark Plasma will not disappoint in this department. Shimano Tiagra offers crisp, effortless shifting with an FSA Gossamer Pro Compact chainset offering a lower gear ratio which will get you over the steepest hills with relative ease.

Shimano R500 wheels and Schwalbe Lugano tyres will keep you rolling along with impeccable handling and predictability urging you to push your boundaries and the competition.

FSA finishing kit completes this Gran Fondo inspired steed..
