Introducing the new Kavenz VHP V7 Frames 6

The 7th evolution of Kavenz' high-pivot platform is here.

Introducing the Kavenz VHP V7 mountain bike frames, meticulously designed to redefine your off-road experience. VHP, which stands for Virtual High Pivot, is the backbone of these frames, offering a host of benefits that elevate your riding to the next level. With modern geometry, robust aluminum construction, and a range of innovative features, the V7 frames are your passport to conquering any terrain.


With the V7 we are able to offer 576 possible variants out of travel, rear center, front center, stack, and seat tube length on the back of one platform. If you multiply this by 215 colors and an infinite amount of ways to place your decals you can be sure that your Kavenz will be almost as unique as you are. Let's get to the details.

Virtual High Pivot (VHP) Technology: Elevating Your Ride

The core of the Kavenz V7 frames is the Virtual High Pivot technology. This revolutionary system offers a rearward axle path, providing you with unparalleled control and traction on the most challenging trails. The high anti-squat design with low pedal kickback ensures a smooth power transfer, while the balanced anti-rise geometry keeps your ride stable, even under heavy braking. While many high-pivot frames use a single-pivot or linkage-driven single-pivot suspension design, our frames rely on the trusted Horst Link suspension layout. That’s why we called it Virtual High Pivot.


One Platform, Endless Possibilities

Whether you choose the VHP15, VHP16, or VHP18, you're investing in a frame built on the same adaptable platform. All you have to change is the shock mount and shock. This unique modular design allows for easy conversion between models, allowing riders to tune their bikes to riding styles and preferences. These are possible configurations of the Kavenz VHP V7 frame:
