Road cycling has evolved. So, too, has the endurance road bike. The VR provides an all-new perspective on experiencing the road, one centered around pushing the limits of distance, topography, and terrain. It’s a bike with which to go forward, to discover, and to evolve. From sunrise to sundown, the VR is your companion to heretofore unknown roads.

The VR is the ideal companion for riding farther than you ever have before. The VR | Advanced line is crafted from several unique types of carbon fibers. UHC (“Ultra Hybrid Carbon”) Advanced fiber is high-modulus, meaning that it’s incredibly stiff to maximize pedaling efficiency and handling feedback. But, when properly manipulated, it also yields a superbly supple chassis to mitigate road feedback and suppress rider fatigue over the course of a long day in the saddle. TeXtreme is another type of carbon that is not only found on our best-performing framesets, but is also utilized in the aerospace industry and on Formula One race cars to both add strength to a structure, as well as reduce its weight relative to alternative composite options. In the case of the VR, the use of TeXtreme allowed our engineers to reduce the bike’s overall weight while ensuring incredible durability and an ineffably sublime ride quality. The VR’s geometry includes a taller stack height relative to its road racing-focused sibling, the FR, which gives VR riders the option of taking advantage of a more upright riding position without having to rely on superfluous headset spacers that are not only aesthetically unappealing, but also subtract from the bike’s overall handling prowess. The VR also has a longer wheelbase than the FR, along with slightly slacker head and seat angles. This gives it a more stable ride quality, making for predictable steering and a solid, planted feel when rolling down fast mountain descents. Finally, the VR also has a shorter seat tube, meaning that a greater amount of seatpost is exposed in order to provide additional compliance where the rider feels it the most.
