The E-Substance Apex features a strong and lightweight aluminium frame and carbon forks, giving the perfect balance of reliability, strength and agility at a low weight. It also is fitted with a Fazua Ride 50 Trail motor drive that provides a pedal-assisted push when you need it. A SRAM Apex 1x11-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 10-42 Tooth cassette and hydraulic disc brakes offers fast gear shifting and exceptional all-weather stopping power.
The Vitus E-Substance loads your ride with freedom and choice. It expands your world, opening up new possibilities to ride and explore where otherwise you might not have looked. Unshackled from the same old routes, each ride reveals new ways ahead, like a fresh map - that bridleway to who-knows-where, the gravel track through the woods or the rougher shortcut that you know is quicker but that other bikes couldn’t handle.
See, in a world obsessed with pace, sometimes we need to focus on the place, the journey and the fun that comes from a bike with the capability to seek out adventures where others wouldn’t.
Whether embarking on a bikepacking adventure or simply staying light for a mixed-terrain local loop, the E-Substance is capable of adapting to suit your ride. At its core, a robust aluminium frame and carbon fork are tuned for versatility, aided by the compact Fazua electric drive system with three assistance levels up to 250 watts. The latest top-tube controller lets you easily manage performance and with everything cleanly integrated, the Substance retains its modern look. Paired with SRAM’s reliable Apex 1X drivetrain, the frame is also compatible with 700c or 650b wheels, so you can fine-tune the setup to best fit where you are riding. For tough rides where water, food and spares might be hard to come by, rack mounts enable you to load up with whatever’s required to reach the next supply point.
This isn’t simply about the same cliches of getting off the beaten track or going in search of the road less travelled, because the E-Substance is more than a gravel or adventure bike. Retaining the essence of what the Substance stands for, the addition of the electric drive system simply opens up the possibility for you to do more. It’s a bike that gives you options. The Substance family empowers a new mindset, one that entices you to break away from routine and to ride where you want to ride, unrestricted.

First emerging as a frame builder in 1970s France, Vitus Bikes played a pivotal role in pioneering the design and manufacture of lugged and bonded aluminium frames, the most iconic being the 979, groundbreaking at the time and still prized among collectors today. In 1982 we engineered and developed the 979 Carbone, one of the very first frames to take carbon fibre technology from the aerospace industry and apply it to bikes. Their tradition of innovation continued throughout subsequent decades with frames which included the 1991 ZXI monocoque carbon frame, the spirit of which lives on in their latest generation of monocoque road bikes. Without exception, each of the bikes – from their singlespeed commuter to the high-end carbon road model – won plaudits for their ride quality, build and great value. The reviews confirmed what they knew all along, and they intend to improve on these already test-winning models as Vitus push forward with the development of this great brand of bikes. “Credit has to be due to a brand that has come back from the ashes and rather than milk the prestige of the old days, has set its sights on the biggest players on the scene.” CYCLIST magazine. Vitus bikes have been tested in many of the top cycling titles and websites across all disciplines. Their bikes have won group tests across Europe and are regarded as some of the best on the market.
