Volagi Viaje (vee-AH-hey)

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

bike_callouts_Viaje

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.

Showing off Liscio at a local group ride .. Volagi rocks! ... See MoreSee Less

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.1 week 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.1 week 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.1 week 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.1 week 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

Two easy rides this weekend on the Viaje:

Saturday: Up Snowbasin and down - this was a very nice loop, the road is closed to vehicles at the old road so it made it a blast going up and down some areas. http://www.strava.com/activities/153559565. I needed the Liscio on this ride, since the fastest speed was only 47mph.

Sunday: https://www.strava.com/activities/154052730. This ride is what the Viaje was made for, a little road, a little jumping over fences, a little walking in slippery areas, some nice gravel roads. A real magical weekend... There were at least 8 different kind of birds enjoying the day.

For some reason I'm enjoying my Viaje more these days than the Liscio. I got to try another long distance ride on the Liscio so it doesn't feel neglected.

Greg Garrettits funny you mention it ------------ quandry for me, I have both as well and now enjoy the Viaje on the road. taking it on the road to the 430mi RAGBRAI next month, feeling funny because I'm not taking the lighter of the two. weight isn't always the issue. thx again to Volagi for giving me such a dilemma, they both ride and fit so well.1   ·  1 month ago

Jeff TingeyAwesome, I just moved to Chicago in the past year and have heard great things about Door County. So lots of great biking up there?3 weeks ago

Kenn PaulsonOh yes, Door county Century been going on for many years I believe weekend after Labor Day. Many routes and beautiful destinations, food and places to stay whether camping or lodging. Fatbiking beaches, trails for mountain bikes etc.... Tour of the falls in upper Wi. like 12 different water falls to visit for 100's of miles to explore on bike friendly roads. Wi. becoming more and more cycling events and oppurtunities.1   ·  3 weeks ago

Kenn PaulsonI wanted to add, with my 28c Gatorskins and 35c Ritchey Shields on the Viaje, I feel I can go just about anywhere my adventures will take me. I love the versatility! So smooth and so stable, very confidence inspiring which equates to tons of fun! I'm gonna get an extra set of wheels for dirty work.3 weeks ago

Greg GarrettStan's NoTubes - ZTR Alpha 400....great weight support, lightweight enough, can be used on the road as well. check em out.1   ·  3 weeks ago
