VOTEC VRC: carbon racing bikes of distinction

If you appreciate well-designed bicycles with high-quality, modern components at competitive prices, you can be sure that the German-designed VOTEC range will have something for you. With a comprehensive range featuring everything from the VRX gravel series to the VRD disc-brake equipped endurance road models, your only problem will be picking between so many awesome bikes. Aside from offering such a diverse range, VOTEC also puts all of their bikes through rigorous safety tests, offering a 10 and 6 year guarantee on aluminium and carbon frames respectively.

Votec VRC

Lightweight and fast. Versatile and fun

It’s for good reason that everyone in the pro peloton rides a carbon bike: they’re stiff, light and offer a great, exciting ride quality. The bikes of the VOTEC VRC series are no exception. Great for a variety of different applications, whether riding competitively, training or just for fun, the VRC is the perfect tool for the job. Every serious cyclist should own one high end road bike. Make yours a VOTEC VRC.

The perfect platform for performance

All models in the series are built around the High-Modulus carbon VRC frame with full carbon fork, designed and tested by professional cyclists in Germany. Frame features include a tapered head tube for increased strength and lower weight, wider and stiffer PF86 bottom bracket shell for super-efficient power transfer as well as slimmer seat stays, designed to offer slight flex for long hours in the saddle. Fully up-to-date features such as internal cable routing and full wireless groupset compatibility complete the package, giving you the versatility to run the bike with a cable free, electronic drivetrain in the future.

Shimano or SRAM: both the right decision

SRAM and Shimano are two of the most legendary names in the bike industry. Both offer extremely innovative, high-quality groupsets for racing bikes, and you’ll find nothing less on the VRC models.

The top-of-the-range VRC Evo, with its SRAM Red e-tap groupset offers effortless, instant and totally wireless shifting. Furthermore, its wireless drivetrain requires minimal maintenance and looks clean. VRC Shimano-equipped models, while using more traditional cabled drive trains, are no less capable. The VRC Elite features the top-of-the-line Dura Ace groupset for an unparalleled level of performance, reliability and power transfer. The VRC Pro & Comp feature Shimano’s high-performance Ultegra groupset, with trickle-down technology from the Dura-Ace series. The more affordable VRC model features Shimano’s 105 series – a totally competent road bike groupset that allows riders to access incredible quality at an unprecedented price point. All models feature 52/36 semi-compact cranksets and 11-speed cassettes suitable for serious climbing.

A full complement of high-end components

Whichever VRC model you choose, rest assured that your bike will come equipped with a selection of high-quality parts. Wheelsets provided by Mavic, Easton and DT Swiss built around 25mm-wide high-performance racing tyres offer a sensible mix of comfort and speed. On the Comp, Pro and Elite models, the wheels and tyres are tubeless ready. A finishing kit from Zipp rounds off a series of inspiring carbon road bikes.
