Viaje XL Shimano 105

Your adventure starts where the pavement ends.

What makes Viaje different?

Engineered for Adventure. Its steel frame borrows our patented Long Bow Flex Stay from our popular Liscio road bike, and capitalizes on the positive ride quality of both in combination with a tapered carbon fork to tame the harshest roads, washboard trails, and rough gravel. The frame also boasts a tapered head tube, and oversized BB386 Evo bottom bracket to get the most power transfer possible. Finally, a standard 27.2 seatpost allows you to pick and choose the best post that suits your needs.

Tires are capable of completely transforming how a bicycle performs, and with the Viaje you can take your pick. 25mm road tires for pavement duties? No problem. 42mm knobbies to tame the roughest single track and gravel? Have at it. You can even fit 32mm tires with full coverage fenders with the integrated rack and fender braze-ons. You're going to need more tires. But the Viaje is more than just clearance for bigger tires. Thanks to Barley's wizardry with the geometry of the Viaje, regardless of what tires you choose to run the Viaje handles like a dream. Quick, agile, intuitive, but still stable enough for long days in the saddle.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Volagi without the use of disc brakes. Disc brakes offer next level stopping power and control - which is critical when riding in mixed conditions you are likely to encounter on a Viaje. Fully compatible with mechanical or hydraulic systems, the Viaje offers confident control in any environment with the tire clearance to back it up. Get out there, go explore.

Why a steel bike?

Simple. Steel is real. As cheesy as that saying is, it holds a lot of truth. Those who have ridden a steel bike already know, but for those that haven't - Steel has an intrinsically great ride quality thanks to a number of factors. Stonger tubing means you can use smaller diameter tubes which result in a more compliant ride. Careful selection of tubing for the Viaje, along with the road taming performance of our Long Bow Flex Stays results in a supreme ride. Steel, only better.

Steel is also extremely durable, which is especially important when you're exploring uncharted territory on your Viaje, or locking it up to a bike rack downtown. When cared for properly, steel frames can last a lifetime! Many of us at Volagi still have our first bikes that happen to be steel.

Don't get us wrong, there is absolutely still a time and place for carbon - just look at the Liscio. However, for an adventure bike like the Viaje, steel is the perfect material for the right blend of performance, ride quality, durability, and weight.

The steel chosen for the XL has been hand picked to ensure the best possible bike for each model. The XL will be constructed from high end 4130 Chromoly double butted steel tubing. As with all Volagi bikes, the Viaje XL will be manufactured overseas and then shipped to our headquarters in Cotati, Ca for final assembly, quality control, and customization.
