Getting serious about your racing? Time to get serious about your bike. The Dark Plasma VR delivers an upgraded components package for peak performance.

Sharing the same custom-moulded high-modulus Uni-Directional carbon frame as its Dark Plasma brother, the VR raises the bar in terms of componentry.

Finished off with quality kit from FSA and Vitus, the Dark Plasma VR is a bike for riding. Because we understand what riding means to you, and we understand what you need from the bike you ride.

As one rider once said – it’s not about the bike. But the right bike helps.
