Vitus Zenium Carbon Disc wins Best in Test with Bikes ETC Magazine

“Vitus, though, has come up with a frame that is not only carbon, but genuinely well designed and of impressive quality.  In short, the new Zenium is a bike that riders wanting a faster ride will love and at a price point that’s simply incredible.” – Bikes ETC Magazine

The Vitus Zenium Carbon Disc has won “Best in Test” in this month’s edition of Bikes ETC Magazine for bikes under £1000.

The Zenium Carbon Disc – which is a revision of our aluminium Zenium – is new for 2019. We wanted to re-evaluate our ‘all-rounder’ carbon road bike proposition for 2019, with some added modern features, and we wanted to try and bring the bike to a lower price point to new audience.

We chose to go for a T700 UD carbon frame set, with ‘all-round’ geometry (not too racy and not too relaxed), to make the bike handle solidly in varying scenarios, whether the rider is commuting, criterium racing, club riding, or taking on a sportive of choice.

 “The new Zenium from Vitus is a very impressive bike. While value for money is excellent, it also has a good-quality frame that’s been designed to suit British riding all-year round. Great comfort, excellent handling and a sleek, stealthy design add up to a winning package.”


Tested by the pros: we gave a Zenium Carbon to Vitus Pro Cycling rider, Adam Kenway for the weekend.

“When I first picked up the Zenium I didn’t pay much attention to the price or spec and just jumped on and rode it.

I was amazed how nimble and lively the bike felt. I hit a descent, straight away I had confidence from the great performing disc brakes. I loved the handling – it felt relaxed, yet precise so it seems to iron out the road surface but at the same time, goes exactly where you point it.

I would be happy to ride the Zenium on a cruise in the Peak District or throw it around a city centre crit.”
