Vitus Zircon 29VR hardtail wins MBUK magazine grouptest We pride ourselves on bringing you the best products from the world’s top brands, and it’s always pleasing when what we have on offer gets positive reviews from the cycling, triathlon and running press.

It’s even more satisfying when our own brand bikes and products are highly praised – which is why we’re pleased to say that the Vitus Zircon 29VR has just won the best in test award in MBUK magazine’s review of £800-£1,000 hardtail bikes!

Here are the highlights from the review:
“There are times when bikes look great but can’t live up to their promise on the trail. The Zircon 29VR satisfies on both counts. While it’s not the most costly bike in this test it’s certainly the best equipped, with highlights including a RockShox Recon through-axle air fork and a drivetrain, brake and wheels set-up that you’d normally only find on bikes costing over £1,000.

“The design and ride of the Zircon manages to incorporate the sprightly ride of a race-bred cross-country bike with the inherent comfort, stability, control and confidence of a more relaxed big wheeler.

“You’ll be lucky to find a better equipped and better handling 29er hardtail than this for £900. There are £900 bikes that weigh a little less than this, but we doubt you’ll find one that’s this well equipped, or that rides this well.”

What makes this review even better is that there's currently a discount on the RRP! For more details on the class-leading hardtail go to the Chain Reaction Cycles website.
