INTRODUCING THE VIPA TRAIL.

It’s time. Riding styles and preferences are ever evolving and progressing. The all-new VIPA TRAIL with 120mm of supple, efficient and comfortable travel is the bike that not only heralds the change but also embraces the needs of those who love the DOWNS as much as the UPS. A bike that is just as comfortable at the sharp end of a Stage Race or Marathon event as it is railing berms or jumping drops on your gnarlier home trails. A bike that makes you feel younger and faster no matter the terrain!

FORK.

Designed around a 120mm travel front fork with BOOST spacing we have opted for the following fork options:

  • Standard Build: RockShox Reba RL, 120mm, 51mm Offset, 15 x 110 Boost Lowers
  • Premium Build: RockShox Pike RCT3, 120mm, 51mm Offset, 15 x 110 Boost Lowers
  • Note: maximum suggested travel is 130mm to ensure intended handling and ride characteristics
REAR SHOCK.

We have worked with Fox Racing Shox to offer 2 options of rear shock that have both been custom tuned for this frame. The emphasis was placed on a rear shock that was able to be plush during longer events but still offer the popular firm lockout option for long climbs and extended gravel sections. 

  • Standard Build: Fox Float DPS, Performance Series,  Evol SV, 3 Position, Firm Lockout, 190mm Eye to Eye
  • Premium Build: Fox Float DPS, Factory Series, Kashima, Evol SV, 3 Position, Firm Lockout, 190mm Eye to Eye 
WHEELSET.

Recognizing that riders wanting the versatility that this bike can offer needed a wheelset that was both light and stiff whilst still durable and wide enough for modern tyre choices we only really had 1 choice of wheel brand – Stan’s No Tubes! 

  • Standard Build:  ZTR Arch S1 , Neo Hubs, 32H, Boost 110 x 15 Front, Boost 148 x 12 Rear
  • Premium Build: ZTR Arch Mk3, Neo Hubs, 32H, Boost 110 x 15 Front, Boost 148 x 12 Rear
  • Suggested “Wide Right” Tyre Size: 29 x 2.25 to 2.5 Width
