Race day or all-day? Your call…

Designed by Vitus Bikes and brought to you by Chainreactioncycles.com, all bikes in the Vitus Zircon range feature a lightweight triple-butted 6061-T6 hydroformed aluminium frame and proven components package at a great price.

For bikers who enjoy crossing elbows in weeknight club races as much as they love fast-paced trail centre runs and all-day epics in the hills, the Vitus Zircon I makes it all possible. A do-it-all hardtail with trail-tuned geometry and competition-ready components package, featuring a 2×10 SRAM drivetrain for reduced weight and improved shifting performance.

Lightweight aluminium frame and Rockshox Recon Gold 120mm travel forks
At the heart of the Zircon I is a lightweight, triple-butted, heat treated 6061-T6 aluminium frame with hydroformed tubeset, trail-tuned geometry, replaceable derailleur hanger and excellent upgrade potential. The frame also features internal cable routing to prevent mud and water getting into cable housings – keeping you shifting smoother for longer and keeping your bike out of the shop and out on the trails.

Suspension duties up front are handled by infinitely adjustable Recon Gold RL Solo Air, with 120mm of plush travel for rock-strewn descents and rooty woodland trails as well as a handy lockout mode for fire-road climbs or hammer-drop racing.

SRAM groupset
The Zircon I features a 20spd SRAM groupset combining X7 shifters and derailleurs with a SRAM S1000 2×10 chainset to provide slick gear changes and a wide gear ratio that will make short work of any gradient the trail can throw at you.

Avid Elixir 3 hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors provide powerful, controlled stopping capability even in the worst of off-road conditions.
Finishing kit

A durable and lightweight SRAM/Mavic wheelset offers impeccable trail performance while grippy, high-volume Maxxis Advantage tyres will give you the confidence to push hard into every corner. A mix of reliable Easton and Vitus finishing kit round out the Zircon I package.

The Vitus Zircon I. A lot of bike for your buck.
