Velorbis’ Dannebrog ladies bicycle and Scrap Deluxe gents bicycle were voted top of the list in the “Going up” section of the “Going up Going down” lifestyle product review in New Zealand’s national Sunday newspaper, Sunday Star Times in September.

The list regularly reviews what is hot and what is not in the world of consumer lifestyle products.

Velorbis bicycles are undeniably ‘must have’ items. They are described as “Uber-cool bikes imported from Denmark for those who are eco-conscious yet staunchly stylish.” We couldn’t agree more!

According to Bike Biz’s 2009 industry salary survey, women are still drastically underrepresented in the trade, with females representing as little as 5% of the UK’s bicycle business.

“Companies such as Velorbis are working hard to attract female consumers to cycling. But maybe the bike business needs to also work harder at tempting women to join the industry,” said Bike Biz. 

We definitely agree with Bike Biz. 

Velorbis has always strived to highlight the practicality and lifestyle benefits of cycling equally to both our male and female customers – and inject some glamour into the industry – through our imagery and our carefully designed range of classic bicycle icons that suit all lifestyle needs and personal styles.

Velorbis’s Victoria Classic ladies bicycle and Churchill Classic gents bike were featured in The Times article – “Sit up and take notice” – in which journalist Andrew Martin applauds the return of a classic bicycle shape in his prelude to the 2007 London Cycle Show. 

“A company called Velorbis will be exhibiting the latest in its range of ‘elegant, classic bicycles at the show. The firm is Danish (the sit-up-and-beg has always been popular in Northern Europe), but its models have Anglophile names, and are described in fogeyish, fascinatingly non-PC language: ‘Victoria, the ladies model, takes its curvilinear shape from the subtle, smooth lines of the female form’. While ‘Churchill, our classic gents model, reflects the sturdy, muscular contours of the male physique.'”
