  • The geometry is designed for all day trail rides, taking in all types of terrain and is ideal for endurance events. 
  • The frame is corrected for a 100 - 130mm fork travel range and there is plenty of mud clearance for a 2.3” tyre.

“On the first ride it just felt like it was at instantly felt right. The low-slung stance and the whippy chassis ‘feel’ made it fly round corners. It’s lack of weight meant that I could hardly feel that I’d been out for a ride at all when I got back. Effortless. I couldn’t wait to take it out for a day of whipping singletrack”.

"A great hard-riding cross-country frame at a great price with the added bene?t of singlespeed or geared compatibility"

"Virsa by name, versatile by nature: Decade’s steel all-rounder"

"Summary: We like the Virsa’s no-nonsense honesty, versatile build options and price."

"Mud, glorious mud - Anyone who’s attempted a (non-trail centre) UK ride in the depths of winter will understand the importance of rear wheel mud clearance. More is better, and too little can see things literally grind to a halt. No worries on that front with the Decade, which has enough room between rear tyre and frame to keep ploughing on regardless."

"Swap, not slide - While other manufacturers have jumped through design and engineering hoops to equip their bikes with adjustable dropouts, Decade’s approach is refreshingly simple. Small bolt-on dropouts attach via a pair of bolts to each side. Standard dropouts are vertical, but horizontal ones – for singlespeed use – are supplied too."

"The multiple choice approach to front end setups is mirrored out back, with swap-out dropouts giving a bolt-on choice of vertical or horizontal slots, so you can go singlespeed. A box gusset up front provides some reassuring extra strength, while epic mud clearance at the rear – thanks to bridgeless chainstays and a wishbone seatstay – plus the forwardfacing, mud-dodging seatclamp provide clear clues to the Virsa’s UK design roots."

"The feel With a ride position that’s slightly biased towards the cross-country end of the scale, the Virsa is an efficient machine or ticking off the miles. There aren’t any handling vices lurking."
