Jo wanted a new MTB to match her Road biike so we designed a frameset and component choice around her style of riding.
She wanted a light weight frame that could handle a long travel fork whilst still steering quickly.
The geometry gives the quick handling with a stable wheelbase and good ground clearence.
The 1x10 gearing was chosen for simplicity and the seat mast, made from Carbon, was added to give some complience whilst in the saddle withour having to resort to suspension posts.
We 3D printed a stainless steel chainstay bridge with the VA logo on it for a clean touch and to give us a shape and internal structure that wasnt available elsewhere. We believe this may have been the first use of this technology on a steel bike.
