Vitus Bikes Zenium SL Pro Disc – Superlight Ultegra 2017
Vitus Bikes Zenium SL Pro Disc - Superlight UltegraDisc brakes are becoming an ever more popular choice with road and sportive riders thanks to the improved all weather braking performance! With the added benefit of increased tyre clearance making it possible to run up to a 28c tyre this adds even greater appeal to anyone wishing to mix it up between gravel and road!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 SL PRO features a custom designed superlight alloy disc brake specific frame that has an ultra durable and weight saving anodised finish matched with a full carbon fork. The drivetrain is courtesy of Shimano's flawless Ultegra 11-speed package with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, FSA Vision Team 30 Disc Brake wheelset and Vitus finishing kit combine to make a versatile yet agile build. The Zenium SL PRO has it all!Super Light 6066-T6 Triple Butted Alloy Frame With T700 HM-UD Carbon ForkThe Zenium SL frame features a super light 6066-T6 triple butted alloy tube set with smooth welds. We have omitted a brace on the seat stays to help tune out road vibrations and have flared the seat tube at the bottom bracket junction to increase lateral stiffness for optimised power transfer and vertical compliance to combine the best of both worlds. Up front a tapered head tube and oversized tubing culminate in razor sharp handling. Our semi-sloping endurance geometry offers a balanced ride resulting in reduced rider fatigue and confidence inspiring handling The T700 HM-UD disc brake specific full carbon fork features a tapered carbon steerer for increased steering precision with reduced road buzz from rough road surfaces. A 15mm through axle provides enhanced braking performance and improved handling to counteract the brake forces that are transmitted through one side of the fork.
