Viaje

What makes Volagi different?

 

Volagi Viaje (vee-AH-hey)

Viaje – n. the act of traveling from one place to another, a trip

All great journeys venture off the beaten path and onto uncharted roads. For this, the Viaje has been specifically designed for the rider who loves to explore. Exceptional road bike handling with the tire clearance and moxie to forge new trails. Add fenders, racks, and lights to create the perfect bike for any situation.

LongBow Flex Stay™ Suspension

We found that the benefits of our patented Long Bow Flex Stay design on our carbon frames, are equally as evident when used in a steel frame. Built from a continuous piece of steel tubing to maximize compliance, the stays are welded to a single sculpted lug which is brazed to the curved top tube. The result of this radical frame design is an exceptionally smooth ride quality and one beautifully sculpted piece of rideable art.

Premium Steel tubing

The Viaje XL is constructed from 4130 Chromoly double butted tubing, mated with a carbon tapered fork with an aluminum steer tube. The ride quality of the material chosen for this bike is intrinsically smooth with significant road vibration dampening technologies. Wherever the road takes you, the steel used for the Viaje makes for a buttery smooth and responsive ride.

Tire Clearance

Options are virtually limitless when you can switch from your 23mm wide racing wheels to your 42c knobby 29ers in seconds, all on the same bike. Don’t ever let tire clearance be the limiting factor for where your ride can take you. The Viaje has wide enough clearance for 42c tires or 32c tires with fenders. Ride from pave, to gravel, to single track in one day and then do it all over again.

Fender & Rack Mounts

There’s no denying the benefits of riding a bike over other forms of transportation. When traveling long distances or simply commuting to and from work on your Viaje, your bike needs to be as resilient as you are. The Viaje incorporates front and rear fender mounts to keep Mother Nature from ruining your clean duds. Plus, we wanted you to have the option of hauling around extra goodies if need be, so we added rear rack mounts to the bike as well.

The Volagi Viaje is truly the ultimate quiver killer when it comes to a road bike with possibilities. The Viaje can do it all: mounts for racks and bags for your next randonneuring event, clearance up to 42c tires for an epic off road adventure, and lightweight enough to be your go-to road bike or gravel grinder.

Real Experiences, Real Riders

The Liscio and the Chicken Sprint:

So, I go for a ride in the flats on a route that includes the segment called "Dog Pound". I get chased by dogs, all kinds of dogs: big dogs, friendly dogs, dogs with amazing power to weight ratio, dogs that are all fur and teeth and frenzy. I am used to "dog sprints".

But yesterday, at the end of a 25 mile ride, I was chased by...a chicken, a big white well motivated chicken! That chicken must have had carbon fiber legs and a BB90 bottom bracket because her acceleration was amazing. She matched me pedal stroke for cluck for a furious 30 seconds.

I am proud to say the Liscio responded brilliantly. I'll wager she is now the world champion of the chicken sprint.

Today I had the pleasure of meeting and riding w/ Kiki. I was a volunteer at the Mtn Challenge she rode. I rode MY VOLAGI Liscio to Big Basin state park headquarters to be there before any of the 480+ riders streamed thru.

My purpose was to minimize the impact these riders would have on the thousands of tourists who were milling around the area. The event had not paid the park a fee to pass thru so it was important that we didn't stop to use their bathrooms and fountains, as we have ample water and rest stops to nourish the "challenged" riders.

If you didn't know, the four routes of 35-124 miles thru the Santa Cruz mountains is drop dead gorgeous. See you next year!!

My turn. :)

I posted this on my timeline a few weeks ago:

"I am reminded that I don't ride to be good. I don't ride to be great. I am not interested in the win.

I ride for those few moments where I can live without excuse, without blame or need to blame. I ride to know those minutes where my destiny is canvas and I am the painter.

And I ride in the hope that in those moments I am not riding I might live the same way."

A couple of weeks ago I learned I am diabetic. Four days later I was unemployed. Oddly, I am fine. My Liscio is my pathway to a better future. It reminds me that there really is a "will to go" and that I have it. I have been calling it "The E7 Philosophy".

I bought my Liscio last October and have been in love ever since. The other day I rolled into a LBS after a 40 mile ride through the local strawberry fields. Both the store mgr and the head mechanic eyed my Volagi and came over for a chat. I let them touch my bike (gasp!), they looked over the longbow stays, cast envious looks at my disc brakes, asked about the ride, admired the lines, and generally made all the right kind of "Ooooo" and "Ahhhhhh" sounds. The head mechanic gave the Liscio a final slow look and said "That's a damn nice bike." I rode out of there with a huge grin on my face.

There are many reasons to love the fantastic bike you folks created. But I have to say that this is one of my favorites...

I *only* signed up for the Santa Cruz Mountain Challenge because of my new Volagi. I don't even LIKE to climb but with all these new gears and light features, seemed a waste not to at least TRY, right? It is definitely giving me the Will to GO! I happened to be wearing a Volagi jersey today, too & one rider said, "So you DO have the matching bike to the jersey...." I explained it was my only white light colored, clean jersey to beat today's heat and yes I was a big Volagi fan now my new Liscio! ... See MoreSee Less

Derrick MillerSuhweeet! You are an inspiration. You know that, right?1   ·  4 days ago

Kiki KurvinThanks, Derrick Miller, I'm never anyone's inspiration for climbing, so that's cool to read, thanks! :) Admittedly, I walked some of the toughest stretch but I wasn't going to let the Jamison climb deter me from signing up for this challenge. I checked my ego at the door and did whatever it took to make it to the top!4 days ago

Robert ChoiCongratulations on your awesome ride in Santa Cruz mtn. I lived in Los Gatos and Gilroy so I'm sooo familiar with the area. In fact, I was so inspired moving there from PA, I have in my will to spread my ashes on Hwy 9 by Big Basin. We are so proud that Volagi was inspirational and hopefully it's a beginning to many more experiences to come. Thanks for sharing, Robert and all of us at Volagi1   ·  4 days ago

Was just thinking about the amazing adventures I've had on the Liscio the other day whilst out riding. I've done Ireland end-to-end, London to Edinburgh followed closely by a crazy night ride from London to Cambridge setting off at nearly midnight in the pouring rain and finishing nearly an hour faster than the next quickest person. I've done Inverness to Livingston (Edinburgh) over the Cairngorm mountains in the middle of some of the UK's worst storms in 50 years - reaching 60mph heading down from Glenshee ski centre. Most recently I've done hill repeats on Alpe D'Huez all day. But I've also had hundreds of other great rides where I've laughed, cried, raced and dawdled (OK - not so much of the dawdling). Above all, it's been amazing - every ride is an event. Tomorrow I have another planned. Thank you all at Volagi! ... See MoreSee Less

Robert ChoiDear Richard Merell, can't tell you how much those words of encouragement means to all of us at Volagi. It truly gives meaning to what we do here everyday. Thank you2   ·  7 days ago

Robert ChoiBtw, your epic ride on Alpe D'Huez is mother of all rides and is now the gold standard where we compare hill climbs.2   ·  7 days ago

Richard MerellThank you, Robert Choi, it's a truly fabulous bike you at Volagi have given me. I should probably add that I've raised nearly $50,000 for cancer charities mostly by doing these rides and the Liscio has given me the confidence to take these things on. When I told people that I was going for a The Six at the Alpe D'HuZes event (Zes being 6 in a Dutch after all), almost nobody thought I could do it. On the day I had absolutely no doubts and one of the key reasons was because I was aboard the fabulous Volagi Liscio.1   ·  7 days ago

Looking for reviews from people who have ridden Liscio, Viaje steel and Viaje Ti. I'm interested to know approx. how much a 53cm Viaje Ti would weigh all dressed up in carbon with an 11 speed? I have a steel Viaje and would like to know how the other two compare to the steel in regards to ride and performance. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less

Greg Garrettmostly weight, long accents favoring the Liscio-------------- I have both the steel and CF in dura ace/ultegra/trp hydr's, set ap almost identically with the wheels being close. the viaje has more spring in the real on bigger bumps. not done the Ti, but I imagine its going to feel much like the steel but slighly lighter. I got my Liscio as a shop bike right before the steel frames came out, then decided to sell a couple of my bikes to get a viaje frame/wheelset and build it up. no regrets. both bikes have their purpose, with the Viaje as a more versatile all around bike for everything. but for longer, steeper rides, the Liscio is preferable for me. both are very comfortable. Liscio would've been shipped this week to Iowa for RAGBRAI but for a stuck seatpost in the down position, had to go out that day. so you know the ride I have going to Iowa. hope to see you there, kenn.3 weeks ago

Kenn PaulsonThanks Greg, I realize that the 3 frames alone can't be that far apart. I think Robert told me the steel is about 2.1 k and the Ti is about 1.8. I'm not sure but something rings a bell at 1.4kilo for the carbon in same size. I don't know what that is in pounds and ounces but it can't be alot of difference in stag weight. I have my Viaje dressed up for light touring and adventure. I'm kinda looking for a lighter weight gravel grinder/spirited road ride/ century niche to fill. Comfort and ride quality is important to me, weight is like 3rd but the difference between my Salsa Campeon and Steel Viaje is substancial, especially and understandably from parts chosen. My thoughts; build up a Ti and steel with identical parts, all upper end, What would these weigh? I love the feel of both bikes very much. The Salsa is Scandium/Carbon built for road only, my niche to fill needs to be wider. I do enjoy the lighter weight when I feel the need for speed, my speed mind you. I'm willing to pay for the Ti if I can justify it, would that come from less weight, better feel or something else for that Ti. I hope one day to be able to ride the Liscio. I've not been on a full carbon bike yet, I would love my first to be on a Liscio. I just learned last week working in Iowa, Ragbrai is done on black top roads. I thought of all the gravel in that state and wondered. So road dedicated bikes work well for this ride? Not sure if things will work out to get there but I have my attention to it. I would love to spend even a small amount of time with you and your bro's.3 weeks ago

Greg Garretton the carbon fiber, its a tradeoff. but lighter. its a road bike.... not really a gravel bike, but can take some, and it used for it to a limit. the max tires it can take are 28's n the front, where the steel takes up to 42's. the Ti looks nice, but the price was too high for me. if you can afford it, its a pound lighter------------ do it. the weight issue? get different parts, ie, lighter strong wheelset and lighter seatpost, bar and and stem, mechanical TRP's. the wheelset is important, but for offroad still needs to be quite strong. pay up for those if need be. practice on a ton of hills!! thats where I'm going within an hour, to do some nastyass hills. on my old '02 lemond zurich, packed down with 10 lbs extra weight.3 weeks ago

Kenn PaulsonI've been working hard. For me that is, over 900 miles since middle of May or so. For me that's good,my goal was 2000 mi. this year. I'm starting to see some good gains in performance and thinking about 50/34 instead of my 46/36. Can't say I love the hills but I know I am always incorporating them as much as I can when planning rides or routes. I built the steel for touring and don't want to change it back and forth so I think before a Liscio I would go for the Ti Viaje for aggressive riding for a second Volagi.3 weeks ago

Two Viajes at the finish of the Orr Springs 600k! 383 miles, about 30,000' of climbing, a couple of dozen of miles of dirt, and a 40-hour time limit. 17 starters, 13 finishers. I do believe that this is just what the doctor ordered when I was prescribed a Volagi!! :D

Volagi doing Ride The Rockies 2014. 493 mile, 40.000 feet of climbing. Steep climbs in hail, rain and snow and some wicked fast descents. Liscio with updated TRP HyRds and Disco Brake copper/carbon pads handled it all easily and safely. This is an awesome bike! ... See MoreSee Less
