Trail bike inspired geometry
The Vir Fortis take fun to the next level by slackening the bike out a bit, giving it a more relaxed, playful character. With natural air suspension from the enormous tyre volume Vir Fortis is ready to roll over all terrains.
Internally tapered head tube
Who would choose to be a head tube? You might as well step into the ring with Mike Tyson. It is a critical junction point where forces are distributed around the frame and steering precision is won or lost. Vir Fortis uses a fully integrated internal headset and a fork with a tapered carbon steerer tube to make sure you hold your line over broken ground.
Disk brake compatible
Once rolling you will be surprised by how you can carry your momentum which is why you are going to be thankful for the stopping power of disc brakes. The Vir Fortis carbon frame is fully compatible with disc brakes.
