Back for 2016; the disc brake equipped Vitus Mach 3 is the flat-barred city sibling of the road race focused drop bar Razor range; with a more prone and upright riding position for increased comfort and better visibility over cars and other city traffic. Need to add pannier racks and mudguards; not a problem; the Mach 3 has mounts for both to further increase versatility.
Ideally suited as a fast city commuter or a fitness and training bike, the Mach 3 will also turn its hand to day touring and distance riding, with the emphasis on mile-munching pace without the back-aching pain. The Mach 3 features a Shimano Claris groupset with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes for unparalleled braking performance in any weather.
Lightweight 6061-T6 Alloy Frame With T700 HM-UD Carbon Fork With Alloy Steerer
Our lightweight 6061-T6 alloy frame has been designed with all year riding and commuting in mind. Up front we have added a T700 HM-UD carbon bladed fork with alloy steerer to reduce road buzz from rough sections of road for increased rider comfort.
We have added ample clearance for mud guards and eyelets for ease of fitment on both frame and fork. Additionally we have included pannier rack mounts to broaden the bikes capabilities as an all rounder for commuting and social riding.
Our comfort geometry offers a more relaxed riding position which translates into increased comfort and reduced rider fatigue, a feature that we have come to appreciate ourselves when making early morning commutes when carrying a bag on our back.
