4 reasons not to buy

Bottom line

Zenium VR Disc owners described this rig as both comfortable and lively. One hundred percent of owners that left reviews recommended this bike. It sports a high-quality aluminum frame and a carbon fork. This combination keeps things affordable and - by all reports from owners and experts – absorbs shocks and delivers a comfortable ride. Despite having an excellent Shimano 105 groupset, the manufacturers have kept the price low and resisted turning the Zenium into a flashy showpiece. It was described as tough, comfortable, fast and resilient on uneven city streets. As one owner said, “This bike makes me excited to get out and ride - and what more can you ask?”

Vitus Zenium VR Disc review

…this is a thoroughly sorted bike…it doesn’t absorb the shocks from rough roads…It feels solid and accurate as you carve through a bend… spec is excellent if not mind-blowing and the ride is beyond reproach.
