High performance aluminium has been the staple of club racers and long distance mile munchers for many years, and rightfully so; with low weight and supreme durability at a fraction of the cost of carbon counterparts; what’s not to like! The Zenium VRS features a superlight alloy frame with a full carbon fork; all NEW Ultegra 11 speed gearing and Easton EA70 wheelset; versatile yet agile; the Zenium VRS has it all!
Super Light 6061-T6 Triple Butted Alloy Frame With T700 HM-UD Carbon Fork
New and improved for 2014; our all new super light 6061-T6 triple butted alloy frameset with smooth welds has been optimised for power transfer and vertical compliance to combine the best of both worlds; up front a tapered headtube and oversized hydroformed tubing culminate in razor sharp handling; the oversized PF30 BB enhances power transfer to the rear wheel ensuring every ounce of energy is transmitted to the road. Our semi-sloping endurance geometry and slender seatstays increase vertical compliance adding comfort and a balanced ride resulting in reduced rider fatigue and confidence inspiring handling. The T700 HM-UD full carbon fork features a tapered carbon steerer for increased steering precision with reduced road buzz from rough road surfaces.
Shimano Ultegra & FSA Groupset
Trickle down technology from Shimano’s top tier Dura Ace groupset now features on the new Shimano Ultegra 6800 11 speed shifters and deraileurs with improved ergonomics and enhanced shifting performance. An FSA Gossamer compact chainset with 50t x 34t rings offers a wide gear ratio when paired up with the 11t – 28t Ultegtra 11 speed cassette. Tektro R540 dual pivot brakes offer reliable, predictable stopping power.
Easton EA70 Wheelset & Vitus Finishing Kit
Easton have overhauled their EA70 wheelset to bring it bang up to date with the latest trend for wider rim profiles. The rims now feature a wider 17.5mm (internal) rim width which provides a stiffer rim and alters the profile of the tyre to provide a larger contact patch for extra grip when cornering hard. Additional enhancements include the all new V5 hubset which offers improved durability and reduced maintenance. Continental Grand Sport Race 25c tyres offer added comfort and a larger contact patch for improved grip. Vitus finishing kit completes the components package. Our alloy bars, stem and seatpost provide a lightweight and dependable components package which have been colour coded to match the frame decals.
