“The Virtue II debuts a radical new suspension system (dubbed Equilink) that offers more than five inches of active travel but has none of the drawbacks – no pedal feedback, no bob, and no extra weight – that plague most long-travel systems. It’s super-plush and, amazingly, still handles like a hardtail.”
The aluminum/carbon framed bike features the ability to lock out the 5+” suspension, has a great mix of Shimano, Mavic, Rock Shox and Avid componentry and is designed as an all-area bike.
