Providing the ultimate in reliability, control and pace over any given terrain, in all weather conditions, no matter how far the ride, this adventure-mule has a carbon frame and fork at its core with mounting points for luggage carriers, mudguards and multiple water bottles. This bike is constructed with modern geometry in mind, so you have the optimum sitting position for long-distance cycling comfort and gives the ability to climb even the steepest hills when fully loaded with journey cargo.
With exceptional power from a Shimano GRX 11-Speed drivetrain at the heart of this expedition-steed, it rockets you up the steepest climbs with ease and has gears for all riding scenarios. Should you want to relax take in the views or put the power down rapidly, this gearset shifts through its gear range smoothly and precisely. Plus, this bike is equipped with hydraulic disc brakes to control your speed and momentum in all weather conditions.
Rolling fast and stable on WTB SpeedTerra 650b wheels and WTB Byway 47c tyres, this adventure bike finds pace and grip when rolling over virtually any terrain challenge. This wheel/tyre combo is Tubeless Ready and comes supplied with Tubeless Valves, so you all you must do to convert them tubeless is to install the valves and add your preferred sealant. These wheels perform to exceptional levels but when converted to Tubeless they roll even faster, with more grip and reliability.
This Substance CRS-2 Adventure Road Bike is kitted out with a superb finishing kit from Vitus for exceptional comfort and style at a low weight. This finishing kit includes an aluminium cockpit from Vitus that includes a flat-topped handlebar for enhanced comfort in all sitting positions, plus, it's equipped with a Vitus seatpost and saddle for sensational seating that's especially beneficial during longer rides.
Rest assured that each bike is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition. Find out which size fits you by clicking the size chart tab.
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.

If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
