The Substance CRX-1 HT is optimised for off-road trail riding, gravel grinding and long-distance adventure rides, this Substance hardtail (HT) variant features RockShox suspension forks at the front and a quality finishing kit from FSA and Prime. It is engineered with a lightweight and durable full-carbon frame that is equipped with 30mm-travel RockShox Rudy suspension forks and a SRAM Rival 1x11-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 11-42T cassette and hydraulic disc brakes. It also rolls upon Tubeless Ready Prime Kanza wheels wrapped in Tubeless Ready Maxxis Rambler tyres, giving you superb stability and traction for all-terrain riding.
The Vitus 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 far-flung bikepacking adventure or simply staying light for a mixed-terrain local loop, the Substance CRX HT is capable of adapting to suit your ride, more so than ever before. At its core, a lightweight carbon frame and RockShox suspension fork are tuned for comfort on long days and across varied surfaces.
Aided by big volume tyres that soften the bumps and add traction over rutted or loose tracks, the build also includes a dropper post for maximum freedom of movement on the steepest terrain. With compatibility for 1X or 2X drivetrains and either 700c or 650b wheels, you can really fine-tune the setup to best fit where you are riding. And if ultra-racing or multi-day expeditions are your thing, the frame has ample mounts for luggage, waterbottles and mudguards. For those remote rides where water, food and spares might be hard to come by, you can always load up with whatever you need 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 Substance is more than a gravel or adventure bike. It broadens your horizons, delivering richer experiences and powerful lasting memories. It’s a bike that enables you to do more. It’s a bike that gives you options. The Substance 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.
