We’re delighted to see this fabulous article by Gear Patrol about our custom built Leikier gents bike. 

Gear Patrol is an independently published online journal cited as: ‘The definitive resource for the ever-evolving man.’ Its Beauty On Two Wheels article by Ben Bowers talks about how the Velorbis Leikier bike was born from the collaboration with Danish designer and blacksmith, Lars Leikier, and inspired by 1950’s motorcycle designs. 

“Some things are built to be practical. Other things are meant to simply stun onlookers by the sheer aesthetic awesomeness of their design.”Coming from a site authored and followed by ‘aspirational and discriminating men with a unique understanding of value, luxury, and singularity’, this is true praise indeed.

We spotted this great review of our iconic stunner – Scrap Deluxe ladies bicycle – by Let’s Go Ride a Bike, as part of their ‘Beautiful Bicycles’ series.

Let’s Go Ride a Bike is a fabulous US blog that spreads the pure love of cycling and beautiful design. They believe that life on two wheels should be: “Simple. Stylish. Fun.” We couldn’t agree more!

Dottie from Let’s Go Ride a Bike takes our beautiful Scrap Deluxe ladies bicycle for a spin around the chic streets of Chicago, commenting that“riding this bicycle is sure to get you noticed.” Read the Let’s Go Ride a Bike review of Scrap Deluxe in full, and also see other articles from this fun and inspiring blog.

Velorbis is definitely feeling in the mood for spring, and what better way to celebrate the arrival of better weather than introducing some stunning new bicycle colours to our Student & Studine range.

The colours – glossy spring tones of ivory and army green – are rich, fresh shades with an air of exclusivity and sophistication.

Velorbis Studine Balloon, inspired by our Scrap Deluxe ladies top model, presents a delicately delicious touch of vanilla and caramel; or vanilla and cream, with its crisp ivory frame and brown (standard) or cream (optional)* balloon tyres.  Student Balloon, the gents version, is now available in army green – the tone of which is not stark but slightly faded in true military chic style. Matched with brown (standard) or cream (optional)* balloon tyres; it conveys an old school 70’s vibe.

The rims are also powder coated to match the frame colour, for added distinction and colour coordination.

These bicycles join the other members of the Velorbis Student & Studine family – Student Classic and Studine Classic – which are also available in several colour options (black and racing green for the gents; fire-engine red, racing green and black for the ladies).

Our exciting range of colours and combinations are lined up like delicious sweets in a candy shop – it’s nice to be spoilt for choice.

*Optional balloon tyre colours are subject to availability from your local Velorbis dealer.

Praise indeed! Thanks to our friends at London Cycle Chic for their great review of our “devilishly handsome” Churchill Balloon gents bicycle.

Matt Smith, the official Cyclechic chap has been taking it for a regular spin around the busy streets of London. The London Cycle Chic reviewsays that Churchill Balloon “feels smooth, solid, expensive.” 

Creating the perfect riding experience is what drives Velorbis and our Churchill Balloon gents bike certainly scores top marks. 

According to London Cycle Chic, Velorbis Churchill Balloon is “about as far away from bog-standard as you can get. Riding it actually makes you feel different, somehow improved, enhanced, actually pretty cool….when I ride around London Town on my Velorbis I get looked at, pointed at, talked to, admired, even revered. That is a pretty remarkable effect when you think about it, for what is after all only a bike (I’m not vain or stupid enough to think it has anything to do with me by the way). And it’s the main reason I love it and recommend it to all the people who stop me and ask me about it.

Velorbis loves London. It’s great to hear that Londoners also love Velorbis and that Churchill Balloon is bringing a touch of chilled, chic, cycling style to its streets.

Meet Elechic. 

Not only is it the latest exciting range in the Velorbis family of iconic designer bicycles; Elechic has also completely redefined the current e-bike market by being the first ‘normal’ classic style bicycles with electric motors.

“Who says an electric bike cannot be sophisticated, stylish, streamlined and practical?” 

We posed this all-important question and we’re proud to say that we’ve successfully answered it by meeting our set criteria – beautifully designed bicycles with full e-bike functionality, with the motor and battery integrated in a safe and subtle way.

Instead of creating a completely new set of e-bikes, we’ve added an advanced electric driving system specially equipped with the latest technology and features, to our current range of designer bicycles. This means that all of our premium bicycle models can immediately be transformed into electric bike versions (Victoria ClassicDannebrogScrap Deluxe ladies and gentsChurchill Classic and Churchill Balloon).  Simply select the Elechic version of your favourite premium bicycle model to enjoy outstanding electric bike functionality.

Elechic is a combination of the words ‘Electric’, as in motor, and ‘Chic’, as in smart, timeless style. It was chosen because it perfectly epitomises the true values of Velorbis by combining first class design, practicality and performance. 

Not only does the pedal assisted electric motor system bring added convenience; it opens cycling up to a wider audience (for those of you who need an extra energy boost on their journey). The green benefits are certainly clear. Did you know that cycling 5 km (3 miles) to work instead of driving can save the environment 300 kg of CO2 emissions a year?  

Now you can enjoy a piece of chic Copenhagen cycling culture and an exquisitely designed electric bicycle with all of the superior craftsmanship, luxury and attention to detail synonymous with Velorbis. No need to compromise on style!
