You already know how great a well-tailored garment makes you feel and where it can take you. It’s no different for a bicycle. Since 2009, we’ve taken that approach and helped numerous individuals elevate their ride experience.
A great ride starts with a bicycle that is made just for you: it fits like a glove, makes you faster and look the part. Then it gives you plenty of opportunities to enjoy your new equipment, meet and have fun with like-minded people.
Vitess Made-to-Order bicycle packages start from $4,999 . A Lease-to-Own program is also available. To learn more, or book a discovery call or a private visit, please reach out to concierge@vitessx.com or (1) 416 503 8987.

The process starts with your personal initial consultation: a 2.5-hr one-on-one session with one of our clinicians. We will lead you through our proprietary data gathering and bio-mechanical fitting protocols.
This extensive clinical analysis of your body will help us design the right body-bicycle interface so that your physiological needs are fulfilled; all in advance of your bicycle being built. It is about setting in space and creating proper support for the 6 contact points between your body and the bicycle: your feet, hands and Ischial tuberosity (usually referred as sit bones). The objective of this process is to guarantee your safety on the saddle – prevent injuries and accidents, ensure your comfort – particularly on long rides, and optimize your performance based on your physiology.
Crafting this subtle balance between high-performance and comfort is what makes our made-to-order process unique. No matter if you are completely new to cycling – about 50% of the individuals coming to Vitess, or if you want to take your riding experience to the next level, we take care of the details and deliver true piece of mind, both during and after your purchase.
During this consultation, we will help you hand-pick one of the various pre-curated component packages. From mechanical to electrical derailleurs – wired and wireless, low-profile aluminum rims to aero full-carbon wheels and much more, the choice is vast but our engineering-driven decision making process will make it easy and fun. It’s about understanding your needs and aspirations, and crafting a bicycle that helps you get to where you want to go.
Similarly for the paint artwork options: the Made-to-Order template is set, but you pick the colour that matches your personality. We have a wide palette of unique colours, including a premium upgrade to une-couleur. You can also handpick a bespoke colour – one that has a special meaning to you, or we can even colour-match whatever object you cherish.
Our made-to-order process means that a number of carbon finishing and painting operations only get started once your order is in: this is truly your bicycle, made for you.
About 4-6 weeks later, your Vitess Made-to-Order is ready to be built. We invite you to come in and work with one of our product specialists to build it from scratch. This one-on-one session will provide you with formidable insights into carbon processing, component engineering and system functions, user & maintenance tips. Once the bicycle is built, it is time to experience our delivery-day micro-adjustment & pick-up session: a fun and interactive way of nailing down the dimensional micro-setup of your Vitess.
Post-delivery, our re-fit process keeps track of your body changes over time and we make sure that your bicycle gets re-adjusted accordingly. A perfect fit at delivery day is only the beginning of the fitting journey.
Throughout this process, the endgame is simple and single-minded: elevate your ride experience.

While a great ride starts with a formidable bicycle-crafting experience, what makes it truly spectacular is the quality of the on-road bicycle dynamics. Perfect fit and hand-picked components based on needs are a must; but the primary driver of thrills on the road is the bicycle chassis: the frame-set.
Similarly to Vitess Bespoke, each Vitess Made-to-Order carbon fibre frame-set is made, finished and painted by hand; marrying state-of-the-art materials and manufacturing techniques with artisans’ expert skills.
Our tube-to-tube carbon fibre construction makes for a very special ride: a subtle combination of power transfer, high-speed stability and vibration absorption. Manufacturing costs are an order of magnitude greater than the more typical mass-produced monocoque construction, but we think they’re well worth it.
The job of Vitess’ product architect (and founder) Julien Papon P.Eng. was made a lot easier than the one of a mass-manufacturer’s chief engineer because of the target profile of the typical Vitess owner. Given the much narrower than average target demographics, Papon and the engineering team were able to focus on meaningful product performance targets, and deliver an absolutely unique level of ride quality.
Papon’s automotive manufacturing background was also put to good use when it comes to product testing and quality assurance processes. Lower-than-most production volumes combined with a highly targeted engineering effort have given Vitess the luxury of craftsmanship: when the smallest details matter.

Depending on component selection, the price of your Vitess Made-to-Order will range from $4,999  to about $10,000. Anything fancier and we will entertain the idea of a Vitess Bespoke. You can purchase or lease-to-own it (24 and 36-month lease terms are available; terms and conditions apply).
VitessX Classic Membership is complementary for the 1st year.
