Somewhere before the last bend you dropped the panting chasers that were struggling to stay on your wheel.

You crest the hill and the road unravels in a ribbon of twists. You listen to your pounding heart, the buzz of your tyres on the tarmac, the constant click of your freewheel, the whip of the breeze on your sleeves.

You smile to yourself and stand on the pedals, one last haul for home, plenty more left in the tank.

You can’t beat that feeling. We know that feeling too. Introducing the Dark Plasma VR. A bike for riding. Because we understand what riding means to you, and we understand what you need from the bike you ride.

Sharing the same custom-moulded high-modulus12k carbon frame as its Dark Plasma brother, the VR raises the bar in terms of componentry, matching it with a full carbon fork including carbon steerer; Shimano 105 20-speed groupset providing crisp, reliable shifting with a wider gear ration; compact double 105 chainset for optimum climbing range; quality Pro-Lite Merano wheelset for snappy acceleration and Schwalbe race tyres for confidence and grip. As one rider once said – it’s not about the bike. But the right bike helps.
