Press Release: Viral Bikes
For 2021, Viral's Skeptic model gets a whole new frame design while the Derive gets some minor tweaks to geometry.
For the Skeptic, we have taken a more aggressive stance with our original All-Mountain hardtail model. It now features a dropped top tube design for increased standover and longer reach figures. The new frame will see 440/460/480/500mm reaches for their small through XL sizes respectively. The new Skeptic is built around a 150-160mm travel 29er fork and can, as always, be used with either 27.5+ or 29” wheels.
The Derive model remains the same in frame design. We chose to keep the Derive a more traditional double diamond shape to insure maximum frame bag sizes for those who use their Derive for multi-day excursions. It does receive the longer reach treatment of the Skeptic and frame geometry for the Derive is based around a 120mm fork.
Frame kits retail for $4795 and include Viral’s triple butted titanium frame, a Pinion C1.12 gearbox, CNC cranks, shifter, Gates CarbonDrive belt and cogs, a lockring tool, and the first year oil change for the gearbox. Colors for 2021 remain the same as last season: raw ti and complete bikes can be built to suit any rider’s needs.
This year, we are offering the same pre-order special as before: put 50% down on a new frame kit and received a free Industry 9 wheelset valued at $1355. We have been offering this pre-order special for their production runs every year, and almost the entire production run is spoken for before they even arrive in the United States.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any further questions or if you’d like to get in on the pre-order special or hit the attached link to go to their pre-order special order page. Complete builds are possible and pricing is based on individual spec.
