Ready for high-speed adventures, Vitus has equipped this gravel bike with UD carbon forks. This means you'll enjoy its incredible stiffness when climbing without worrying about any excess weight holding you back when descending.
Designed for top-performance across mixed terrains, this gravel-ready road bike is kitted out with a stunning Shimano GRX drivetrain. This makes it ideal for accelerating up to speed in seconds, with the assistance from its GRX crankset giving you phenomenal torque-power on every mile. With the addition of hydraulic disc brakes, you'll also enjoy its outstanding stopping power and control during descents and cornering on this fantastic gravel bike.
Coming equipped with a WTB ST wheelset and WTB Byway tyres, this road bike is prepared day-long adventures. Using its WTB Byway tyre's larger outer diameter, this two-wheeler delivers amazing grip and smoothness when riding across uneven gravel surfaces. One final highlight is this gravel bike’s wheels and tyres are tubeless-ready. This means you can easily install tubeless valves and add sealant if you want to run a tubeless set-up (valves and sealant sold separately).
Built, Tuned and Tested
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. We supply all bikes with a set of plastic pedals, a pedal wrench and a multi-tool kit. 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.

Getting the Right Fit
At Wiggle we measure each of our bikes to build accurate size charts for our customers. Our qualified team of mechanics then individually check each order, against measurements supplied by you, to ensure the size chosen is correct. Another reason you can have complete confidence when buying a bike from Wiggle!
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.
