Welcome to the new Vitus Cyclocross range. The CX race machine; the winter road bike; the all-season commuter; the gravel road adventurer. This is your fun bike, for all conditions.

Cyclocross was once the sole preserve of hardened racers - who wanted to maintain the competitive edge throughout the winter months. Now, riders have discovered that modern CX bikes are the perfect all-rounder. 

 

The new Vitus Energie cyclocross bike range is all about freedom. Freedom to leave the road, and to follow that track. Freedom to wear what you want; go baggy or go lycra... 

More than anything, CX bikes give you the choice.

 

Vitus have split the cyclocross range into two distinct platforms, to suit your ride style and budget: 

- Alloy frame with carbon fork – The SUV's of the range
- Carbon frame and fork – Race focussed

 

 

The Vitus Energie alloy range

The alloy frame / carbon fork bikes are the most versatile in the range; with rack and mudguard mounts allowing commuter and weatherproof winter bike duties.

The geometry takes some design inspiration from the award winning Vitus mountain bike range - with longer top tubes and shorter stems. This maintains the ride position, but increases the wheelbase to add stability and built confidence in all conditions.

  1. Gravel - Discover your own gravel adventures, with the freedom to turn off the road and onto the tracks.
  2. Commute - CX bikes are fantastic workhorses for the speedy commuter. The aluminium Energie bikes feature mudguard and rack mounts allowing you to ditch the back pack. With room engineered for bigger tyres you could select a high volume road tyre for fast and smooth commuting.
  3. Winter Road - The introduction of disc brakes in recent years has made a CX bike a smart choice for yourwinter road bike, with the added ability to run virtually any size road tyre.
  4. Cyclocross Racing - Racing CX is great way to maintain or improve fitness across the autumn and winter. It’s also going to improve your bike handling skills. And it's fun too...
