The all new 2018 Venon has been developed for speed whatever distance your ride. A true allrounder, it’s your perfect bike for bike for fast Sportives, eager to cut down your climb times and increase your average speeds.
The test winning Venon has been the go-to endurance bike in the Vitus range, our design teams brief was to keep the core performance spirit of its predecessor, while engineering more comfort and control.
With a shorter and more upright position compared to a traditional race bike, the Venon is designed to increase riding comfort and reduce fatigue, resulting in a smooth and efficient ride whatever the distance or conditions. But don’t think the Venon is just a gentle cruiser, the lightweight responsive Hi- modulus carbon frame packs an eagerness to go faster.
All new Venon models feature the latest flat mount disc brakes, providing consistent and controllable breaking in all conditions, with bolt through axles resulting in assured handling no matter how tight the turn, or how bad the road surface.
With the trend for wider tyres the Venon is fitted with 28mm tyres, but has clearance for up to 30c, allowing more comfort on rougher surfaces and opening the road for more adventures.
