【NEW】Optimize Your Speed: VSRu 2023 Upgrade

Mar. 22nd, 2023






Since the launch of DARE’s aero road bike VSRu, the model has rapidly grown in popularity thanks to its unique look and responsive output performance. Shifting market needs and cycling culture pushed us to upgrade the VSRu for 2023, providing only top-of-the-line machines for our sponsored pro team Uno-X in their debut Tour de France.

Within the first half of the 2023 season, Uno-X Pro Team nabbed multiple stage wins and even secured the polka dot jersey during Paris-Nice, showcasing VSRu’s incredible capabilities whether sprinting or mountain climbing.

Standard Color- Flash Black


After multiple testing and modification, we are proud to launch the market version “Flash Black” in March. Flash Black features a matte black base, adorned with a shimmery metallic logo and glossy black linear designs, perfectly highlighting the VSRu’s style and elegance, and capturing the essence of our pursuit for speed.




Aerodynamic Upgrade


Handlebars are a crucial aspect of cycling aerodynamics, as they’re the first part to come up against air resistance. Our new AERO1v handlebars exhibit great drag coefficient numbers, and its slight five-degree V-shape allows for a more ergonomic top hold and aggressive riding stance. Cyclists can install secondary shifter tops for quick shifting in the top handlebar position, and DARE also provides a variety of handlebar sizes (including 360mm), so you’ll be able to set up the most suitable handling for you. 


In addition to the AERO1v, we also optimized the VSRu frame’s aerodynamics based on CFD analysis and feedback from racers. The newly streamlined head tube and fork shape guide airflow past the seat stays with more stability.






Performance Upgrade


Compared to the previous generation VSRu, our upgraded frameset is 6% lighter and 5% more comfortable. Not only does it provide more stability cruising on flat roads, but better handling over cobbles and mountainous terrain as well. 


In recent years we’ve seen wider tire widths become mainstream practice for competitions due to their compliancy. The new VSRu can be outfitted with tires up to 30C, a versatile feature for managing different road conditions.
