The Prism is the go to bike for intermediate level riders who want Verde’s signature style on a longer, stronger bike. The Prism’s longer front end, chromoly down tube, and Cinema 333 double wall rear rim give riders ready to take the next step up from beginner to intermediate the bike they desire.
The 2012 Prism gets extra strength from a 4130 chromoly down tube. Other standard features like a sealed mid bottom bracket, integrated seat clamp, high quality welds, extra rear tire clearance, micro drop outs, down tube gusset, a matte finish paint job, and simple graphics let everyone know it’s a Verde.
We’ve created the first headset that utilizes sealed angular contact bearing with replaceable headset cups. Now you get the high quality of a sealed integrated headset with a lower price tag.
This Prism is the first place you’ll see Cinema’s new 333 rims. You get a double wall in the rear and a weight reducing single wall in the front paired up with DUO’s new SVS 2.25” street tire — A combo that you just can’t beat.
Along with custom anodized Cinema 333 rims, we’ve color matched DUO Doyle grips and capped them off with DUO’s new Resilite bar ends. We also keep the weight down with Verde’s exclusive 6.3 oz. injection molded 2-piece seat.
