Your weapon of choice

Available as a Rolling Chassis for 2017 we are offering the new Full Carbon 120mm travel model with a choice of Standard Build or an upgraded Premium Build. The Rolling Chassis consists of VIPA TRAIL Carbon Frame + Rear Shock + Wheelset + Suspension Fork. Each option has been carefully selected to compliment the frame and intended usage.




Standard Build:
  • Fox Float DPS Performance Shock
  • Stan’s ZTR Arch S1 Wheelset
  • RockShox Revelation RL 120mm
  • R 45,000 incl VAT

Premium Build:

  • Fox Float DPS Factory Shock
  • Stan’s ZTR Arch Mk3 Wheelset
  • RockShox Pike RCT3 120mm
  • R 52,500 incl VAT


Designed around a 120mm travel front fork with BOOST spacing we have opted for the following fork options:
  • Standard Build: RockShox Revelation RL, 120mm, 51mm Offset, 15 x 110 Boost Lowers
  • Premium Build: RockShox Pike RCT3, 120mm, 51mm Offset, 15 x 110 Boost Lowers

Note: maximum suggested travel is 130mm to ensure intended handling and ride characteristics


Rear Shock

We have worked with Fox Racing Shox to offer 2 options of rear shock that have both been custom tuned for this frame. The emphasis was placed on a rear shock that was able to be plush during longer events but still offer the popular firm lockout option for long climbs and extended gravel sections.
  • Standard Build: Fox Float DPS, Performance Series, Evol SV, 3 Position, Firm Lockout, 190mm Eye to Eye
  • Premium Build: Fox Float DPS, Factory Series, Kashima, Evol SV, 3 Position, Firm Lockout, 190mm Eye to Eye



Recognizing that riders wanting the versatility that this bike can offer needed a wheelset that was both light and stiff whilst still durable and wide enough for modern tyre choices we only really had 1 choice of wheel brand – Stan’s No Tubes!
  • Standard Build: ZTR Arch S1, Neo Hubs, 32H, Boost 110 x 15 Front, Boost 148 x 12 Rear
  • Premium Build: ZTR Arch Mk3, Neo Hubs, 32H, Boost 110 x 15 Front, Boost 148 x 12 Rear

Suggested “Wide Right” Tyre Size: 29 x 2.25 to 2.5 Width




The first shipment is expected to arrive next week with limited stock.

In 2017, the Vipa Trail will only be available as a rolling chassis (frame, shock, fork, and wheelset).
