“Ride in Style” -Velorbis was born from the hunt for a top quality classic style urban bicycle with a stylish and iconic design aesthetic that reflected the elements of worldrenowned Danish design, and cool Copenhagen cycling culture. The founders of the company Christian Linde & Kenneth Bødiker couldn’t find what they were looking for in the bicycle industry so they decided to design their own urban commuter. Today Velorbis continues to improve its design of classic style urban bicycles and other lifestyle products after studying stylish male and female Copenhagen cyclists for a number of years, listening to their issues and needs. Velorbis supports global urban sustainability and green transportation initiatives and its aim is to encourage as many people as possible to adopt a stylish two-wheeled approach.
Velorbis has 2 exclusive concept stores in Copenhagen, Denmark and is also represented in Stockholm, Sweden, Oslo & Stavanger, Norway and Amsterdam, Holland. Velorbis is currently expanding its worldwide retailer base and is focusing on the Fashion and Lifestyle industry in its primary markets such as Europe and North America.
OUR NAME – The word VELORBIS® is a registered Trademark under EU, US and Chinese law and is composed from the words “VELO” which means “Bicycle” in several European languages and the word “ORBIS” which is the word for “Rotation or Motion” in Latin. A simple fact to remember; when pronouncing our name just place the emphasis on the “O”!
OUR LION CREST – It is the same with our Velorbis lion crest logo as it is with our bicycles – we have a passion for excellence – reflected in everything that we do. The crest incorporates significant details. The 2 lions symbolise the two founders of Velorbis, who both have Leo as their star signs. The Crown symbolises the fact that the founders both originate from the Kingdoms of Denmark and Sweden.
At Velorbis we wish to be majestic in everything we do and as such, we have designed our bicycles to be ultra posture-friendly with a relaxed riding position to give a majestic vantage point from which to monitor the traffic and view the surroundings.
We believe it when we say; Velorbis – Ride in Style.
