2017 Moots Vamoots CR
At one end of the spectrum you have the Vamoots RSL, a dedicated racing bike, at the other end of the spectrum you have the Vamoots, the gran fondo endurance bike, and sitting smack dab in the middle you have the Vamoots CR. What does this make the Vamoots CR? Think of it as the best of both worlds.
A Titanium bike has many advantages over other materials. It is lighter than steel and has good fatigue resistance and corrosion protection. It also compares favorably to carbon, being more durable and longer lasting. In fact it has been said that your Moots will last as long as you do. Not to mention it has that special feel, unique to titanium that you only understand after riding one. The ride is buttery smooth, so smooth that in sections you’ll feel like you’re floating, but there is also a springiness to it, a life force. Strong. Light. Durable.
The ride characteristics of the Vamoots CR are truly more middle of the road than the RSL. The CR is a true modern road geometry. Fast and responsive handling with all day comfort and stability. It is a four season warrior who shows no bias to whatever you throw at it. It uses a headset with an external lower bearing, thus adding about 20mm to the height of the head tube. If you require additional head tube length beyond 1cm, that is available as a small up charge.
With nine different tube lengths and angles that are specific to each size there is something bound to fit you. Should you not find your size among the nine, custom geometry is available for a fee.
The Moots fork offers all the stiffness and compliance you need for anything the road throws at you. The fork includes a compression plug with custom Mr. Moots top to show the world who made your bike. The Moots Road fork weighs in at approximately 330 grams and it's stealthy matte black finish compliments every frame.
Moots offers several other options to help you customize your Moots for a small extra charge. These extras include internal and electronic compatible, stopless—wireless shifting, pump peg, chain hanger, +1cm head tube length, S & S couplers, custom sizing and etched finish.
The Vamoots CR gives you a great all round ride. Fast, stiff and with that unmistakable titanium ride quality.
