Inspired, the brand that changed the face of street trials with their famous Fourplay and the amazing Danny MacAskill, have updated three of their models for the new season. The discipline’s benchmark bike, the Fourplay, and the entry-level Element 24 have been improved upon in several areas and given a new look.

The Inspired staff have told us a bit about these changes. For more info and pictures, go to the "Complete Bikes" section of the Inspired site!

We are very happy to introduce the 2012 Inspired Fourplay and Element 24” complete bikes. Details of the Fourplay Team, Fourplay Pro and Element models for this season are now available to view on the Complete Bikes page.

For 2012, the Fourplay frames now feature shorter chainstays, increased bottom bracket height, shorter stems and reduced fork rake to further improve the responsive handling the Fourplay is famous for. In order to maintain the comfortable and well balance riding position of previous Fourplay models, the top tube length has been adjusted to compliment the steering and back end geometry upgrades, meaning your contact points with the bike (pedals and handlebar grips) are in exactly the same position relative to each other as before.

A brand new Royal Blue colour option is now available for the Fourplay Team complete bikes alongside the existing Lime Green option. Both bikes come with updated graphics, colour matched forks and are finished with white Inspired and 2012 Truvativ parts for a sharp and fresh look. The Fourplay Pro bikes also have updated graphics and 2012 Truvativ parts as well as a new Dark Purple frame option.

The Element bikes receive the latest 2012 Truvativ parts while the frame design and colour options (Yellow or Grey) continue as before.
