For 2019 Viki will have a Ares signature frame and it doesn't look like a regular street frame! The name come from the initial letter V of Viki Gomez and the V-bend of the top tube. The current plan is to release the frame in 2019 and it will be available worldwide. The price and colors will be announced when the release date is confirmed. A matching signature handlebar with a V-bend of the crossbar is planned as well.
A lot of riders showed up for the final Sport Zone contest of the season in Hungary. The pro podium is really international and makes you wonder where Adam Kun is hiding ;-) Congratulations to Dom on another victory! Check out his final run.
