About Us


By Endurance, We Discover

Volagi started with one idea – that bicycles designed for racing were not practical, or appropriate, for the type of riding done by endurance cyclists. And we wanted to change that.

What Moves Us…


On August 29th, 2007 a migratory bird known as a Bar-tailed Godwit, flew non-stop from Alaska to New Zealand, traveling over 7200 miles (11,680K) in eight days—the longest recorded non-stop journey of any bird or animal known to man. This particular Bar-tailed Godwit, tagged “E7”, was recorded flying at altitudes up to 15,000 feet and traveling at speeds of over 60mph.

We embrace the spirit of E7 and use its story as a way to redefine endurance cycling. It’s The Will to Go. Discovering the spirit of E7 means pushing yourself farther than you ever thought possible, only to survive and push even harder the next time. We have designed our bikes and components to be ultra-comfortable over long distances, perform flawlessly in the most adverse of conditions, and to provide the catalyst for reaching your greatest accomplishments.

Our Inspiration…


Patented LongBow Flex Stay™

Our patented LongBow Flex Stay™ design.

Ultegra Di2 Hydraulic Complete Bike

Ultegra Di2 Hydraulic w/ Ignite SL Carbon Wheels

The patented LongBow Flex™ stay is a radical departure from the norm. We separated the seat stays from the seat tube and lengthened it to maximize the carbon fibers inherent ability to absorb road vibrations. We then optimized the shape and carbon layup of each stay, further enhancing the bike’s ability to flex vertically while remaining stiff horizontally for control and efficient power transfer.

Not only has the LongBow Flex Stay™ resulted in “the most comfortable road frame ever ridden” by Velo Magazine, the bike also turns heads for being a beautiful object. The frame was excellently designed by co-founder Barley Forsman.

Our Work…


In a continued effort to improve quality and customer service, we meticulously inspect and assemble all of our bicycles and frames at our Ogden, Utah headquarters upon arriving to us from our overseas manufacturing facility. All complete bicycles and frames being shipped to dealers and consumers are hand-assembled and rigorously inspected prior to leaving our Ogden facility.

Having final control over the build process allows us to offer truly custom component combinations without any additional charges aside from the upgrade cost. We pride ourselves in providing industry-leading service and the advantages of a custom-build process. The Volagi bicycle that leaves our headquarters and arrives at your bike shop has received hours of attentive and thorough inspection and scrupulous assurance in the quality of every detail.
