Viks x TheArsenale GT
Built in an exclusive collaboration with TheArsenale, this Viks GT is covered in full black color and features orange detailing.
The bike started just like any other Viks bike, by a handmade frame. We chose the GT frame because of its aggressive look. The aluminum tubing was handbent into the unique frame that characterizes Viks. A high sitting seat and low bars give it a very aggressive stance so we wanted to further emphasize this character by giving it a full black color layout. Not only is it part of our style but it seemed like the perfect fit for a bike like this.
Bits and Pieces
This special edition Viks GT uses the finest components available for the best performance possible. A Gates Carbon Belt Drive is installed instead of a regular chain, ensuring reliability without much of the maintenance required. Connected to a BLB crank and a Shimano Square-Taper, the wheels are stopped by Shimano SLX Hydraulic disc brakes both front and rear. The wide-profiled BLB Notorious 90 Rims are paired to high performance Schwalbe Kojak tires for ultimate performance on the road. The Brooks England Cambium C15 sits atop a BLB Track seatpost to give the bike a high riding position.
