Lots of bikes roll through the halls at Vital, but very few elicit such a stop-you-in-your-tracks reaction as Eminent. The bikes just look unique. They feature radical design elements like angular tubing, a sloping top tube that aligns perfectly with the rear seat stays, a floating rear shock that bisects a forked seat tube, plus aggressive, square styling and gussets at every turn. The new Onset is one of the most different-looking suspension frames that we’ve seen in a while. The Onset also made us question if the bike had a ride that matched its aggressive looks or was it just an exercise in industrial design.
