The Vita is Specialized's 'speed hybrid' AKA flatbar road bike for women.
The Specialized Vita goes a long way to offering the fast-steering speed potential of a road bike, except it comes with MTB-like flat bars rather than road race drop handlebars. The fact that the Vita is a fast, fun bike to ride is no accident when you realise that its frame geometry (74 degree seat tube angle and 71 head tube angle for medium sized frame) is almost as racy as the Specialized Dolce women's road bike's (75.5 degree seat tube angle and 71.5 head tube angle). A Specialized Vita is therefore like the deservedly popular Specialized Sirrus, but with a women's-specific frame with a shorter reach to the bars, and it comes with a women's version of the Specialized Body Geometry saddle.
- The lightweight, butted Specialized A1 Premium Aluminium frame's Women's Fitness 'relaxed road' geometry guarantees a fast, smooth ride.
- Both the frame and the alloy fork are eyeletted to make it easy to mount mudguards and racks. If you need anything fitted, just ask. Our labour charge is zero if the accessories are ordered at the same time as the bike.
- Specialized Nimbus 700x32 Flak Jacket tyres get you there fast, they are virtually immune to punctures, and they offer enough cushioning to offer a comfortable ride when you take detours on unpaved Sustrans routes.
- Strong double-wall alloy wheel rims with machined sidewalls get the best performance from the dependable V-brakes.
- The Shimano EZFire 3x8 drivetrain ensures fast, reliable gear shifting.
- Specialized's legendary BG (Body Geometry) Rivasaddle and BG grips help guarantee comfort.
Road Heart: City Soul
The Vita delivers the best of both worlds. It's a speedy performer that can eat miles with the best of them at a local charity ride or as part of your exercise plan, but can also see you owning the bike lane while commuting to work. With its confidence-inspiring flat bar, a frame optimised for comfort and efficiency, and full mudguard clearance and rack compatibility, the Vita is the perfect mix of true road speed and total versatility.
The Vita combines the efficiency of a road bike with the comfort and confidence that comes from a flat bar, whether you're exercising, commuting, or hitting the open road. The 9-speed Shimano drivetrain delivers smooth, reliable shifting and offers a wide range of gearing.'
