Crestline Bike Co. & Cascade Components
RS 205 VHP DH Weapon
Lets get straight to the good stuff. Click the 'Learn More' link below to see all the key information about our extremely limited 205mm VHP frame. This bike was designed in collaboration with Cascade Components from the ground up to ensure the optimum combination of race geometry and kinematics.
"One of the rarest downhill bikes on the planet. It is a very purpose built downhill machine, it is a race bike, it likes to go fast”
-----The Loam Wolf-----
“The modulus mixed-wheeled downhill bike utilizes a virtual high pivot suspension design and boasts endless customization options to match rider preferences.”
“We’d love to get our hands on an RS 205 VHP for a longer term review and have the time to play around with the full gamut of wheel and suspension configurations. It’s certainly a bike that can be setup to be raced on Sunday and still play in the bike park.”
Here at Crestline Bike Company it is safe to say we are heavily gravity biased. We go up to come down and we'll take the most painless route to the top every time! Bring on the shuttle runs, chair-lift fueled park days and ebike laps.
Why the RS Badges?
Why have the RS letters in the model name? These two iconic letters are synonymous with motor racing and originally stand for "rally sport," however, when Porsche and Audi started to use them, they became an acronym for "Rennsport," which translated from German means "racing sport."
The "RS" letters continue to be used by auto manufacturers to this day and adorn only their highest performing machines. From Porsche, Ford, and Audi to Chevy, Renault, Skoda, and more, if you look closely, you'll find RS models. Long story short, we love the racing heritage and significance behind these two letters, and feel they capture the essence of our bikes when used in the original way. For us, they will always mean "rally sport" and we are proud to keep that original acronym living on in a totally different -- but very relevant -- sport! So lets get out there and kick up some more dirt together.
