The Energie VRS features a strong, lightweight and stylish aluminium frame and carbon fork, giving you a superb balance of stability, agility and control anywhere. It is also equipped with a SRAM Apex 1x11-Speed groupset with Apex hydraulic disc brakes. And it rolls fast and stable upon Tubeless Ready WTB ST Light i21 TCS rims wrapped in high-grip Schwalbe X-ONE Allround tyres.
Controlled, comfortable and reliable, and with a race pedigree passed down from its full carbon siblings, the Vitus Energie VRS Apex is every bit the capable race bike you need for fun and fast cyclocross.
This discipline is all about trust - knowing how the bike will feel on slippery grass, knowing that when you press hard on the pedals the acceleration will come, knowing that the steering will be responsive if you hit loose gravel or sand and knowing that even the thickest mud won’t hamper your performance. Know that this bike has got your back so you can focus on enjoying the thrill of race day.
Whether racing for a position or with a keenness to cross the finish line, the frame is loaded with thoughtfully engineered features that are uniquely designed and refined for the demands of cyclocross. If you need to carry, the flatter top tube sits comfortably into the shoulder and internal cable routing reduces penetration of dirt so that performance is not reduced by wet conditions or a jet wash. At the front, a full carbon fork keeps the front end light and enhances comfort, reducing stress on your body as the race progresses.
With geometry shared from the top-tier Energie range, the top tube is also slightly longer and the stem a touch shorter, keeping weight distribution slightly back from the front end so the handling feels snappy - immediate control in all conditions. Frame clearance around the wheels is vast, so your speed won’t be slowed, nor the bike weighed down by mud. It also makes the bike easy to clean so when the racing is done you can spray it down quickly and put it straight into the car.
A Vitus is always best being ridden, not hanging on a wall, waiting or posing. So when you’re not lining up for cyclocross, thanks to integrated mudguard mounts you can carry on with your winter training, exploring new roads and year-round commuting. However you ride, with the Energie the fun is always turned right up. Why wouldn’t you want to keep riding this bike?

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.
