Description

Chrono

When it’s you against the clock, and the clock shows no mercy…

Refined for 2013 with improved aerodynamic performance and upgraded component spec, the Vitus Chrono is our high-performance aero bike for dedicated time trial and triathlon athletes in the pursuit of personal best times and podium places.

Torayca® T700 high-modulus UD carbon frameset - UCI Approved
Brought to you exclusively by Chainreactioncycles.com, the Vitus Chrono features a custom-moulded Torayca® T700 super high-modulus Uni-Directional monocoque carbon fibre frame with wind cheating attributes. Wind tunnel testing has led us to develop our aero tube set and rear wheel cut out for minimal drag and increased aerodynamic performance.

Internal cable routing further reduces drag and adds to the aesthetics of the frame. This super stiff frame maximizes rider input by transferring every watt of power to the back wheel without fear of energy sapping flex; the Chrono will cut through the air like a hot knife through butter!

SRAM Force/Rival groupset
Gear selection and transmission duties are positive and precise via the SRAM Force/Rival groupset. SRAM Force derailleurs are paired up with SRAM SL-500 aero shifters to provide flawless shifting time after time. SRAM's Rival OCT 2.2 chainset combines lightweight and ultimate stiffness to create the driving force at the heart of the transmission and ensures every ounce of energy is transmitted through the oversized bottom bracket area of the frame to the rear wheel.

Braking is highly effective thanks to the dual pivot Rival calipers providing a perfect blend of stopping power and modulation which results in better handling and increased confidence.

Finishing kit
Vision Team alloy base bars are paired up with Vision Vector clip-on extensions offering a high degree of adjustability; allowing you to tailor your cockpit so you find the most efficient setting when in the aero position.

The wheelset on any bike can transform how the bike handles and performs; for 2013 we have added an Easton EA50 Aero wheelset with bladed spokes and aero rim profile to further reduce aerodynamic drag. To complete the wheelset we have added Continental Ultra Race tyres which have a proven track record for performance and reliability in all conditions.

The Vitus Chrono – because every second counts..
