18 MONTHS OF DEVELOPMENT.
5 YEARS IN THE MAKING.
Arguably South Africa’s first “ Superbike” – the original VIPA was the first Full Carbon Full Suspension Bike to be designed and developed right here in South Africa.
A lot has changed since 2013 and the new ULTRA represents these changes and evolution in geometry and new trends.
Our ALL IN approach has created a purpose-built and designed Stage Race Bike.
Unashamedly Focused. Zero Compromise.
