Product description
The Substance 2 features a strong and lightweight high-quality aluminium frame, carbon fibre forks and a 2x8-Speed groupset from Microshift. It is also equipped with Tektro mechanical disc brakes, and it rolls upon Tubeless Ready WTB ST i23 TSC rims wrapped in all-terrain Vee Rail Sport tyres.

Versatile, Stylish and Fun Gravel Bike
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.

Microshift 8-Speed Groupset and Tektro Disc Brakes
Whether embarking on a far-flung bikepacking trip, gravel ride or simply staying light for a mixed-terrain local loop, the Substance 2 with dependable Microshift components can adapt to suit your ride. At its core, a double-butted aluminium frame and carbon 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. This model is setup with a 2x drivetrain, but the frame is also compatible with 1X groupsets and either 700c or 650b wheels, so you can really fine-tune the bike to best fit where you are riding. For longer rides with gaps between supply points, there are mounts for luggage and water bottles, as well as for mudguards to shield you from mud and water.

All-Terrain Gravel Road Bike
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.

Built, Tuned and Ready to Ride
When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools and plastic pedals are conveniently included in the box.

    Back in the day these were called Road bikes with bigger tyres and canti's.

    Back in the day they used to call a car, a spaghetti carbonara if it was made of pasta, ham and cheese.

    Cross marketing.

    Wider fork tyre clearance and built kit/luggage hanging points, different cassette/gearing, so a little bit more to add to that list if we’re honest …🤷‍♂️

    Any bike is good if it gives you sore legs

    Vitus is a well established company in cycling, famous for aluminium frames in the 80s with several top road teams.

    Hi, what would the max tyre width be and also do you think it could convert to ebike? Thanks
