Hannele Steyn's Custom Momsen VIPA - The Last Lioness

A very special bike for a very special athlete! To celebrate Hannele Steyn's 15th Cape Epic participation Momsen Bikes and SRAM have collaborated to design and build a truly unique and bespoke VIPA for her use. The brief was simple - keep it bright and keep it bold!

 

Our 2017 Last Lioness VIPA was a bike that received a lot of attention and there was definitely some pressure to try and come out with a new look that somehow built on the 2017 bike’s success – we are happy we achieved our goal and more!

 

I would like to wish Hannele a great 2018 Cape Epic and am really looking forward to seeing this awesome bike in action come 18th March. Victor Momsen
