Experience Something Different

“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.”

-Derrick M., Volagi Rider

We build bikes for you to have the best experience you’ve ever had riding a bike. Whether it’s getting started after an injury, or because of a goal you want to accomplish, we build bikes for the ordinary, and extraordinary, endurance rider. The photos are of our fans and riders who wanted to experience something different. They all experience the Volagi difference.

Volagi Liscio, Performance Carbon Fiber Road Bike

Volagi Viaje – Steel Adventure Road Bike

Changing the perception of endurance cycling is at the core of Volagi. We have taken the latest advances in frame technology and designed a bike with the endurance cyclist in mind.

Learn more about Volagi, our bikes, and our difference.

LONGBOW FLEX™ STAY SUSPENSIONLongBow Flex Stay™ Design

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.

  • Patented flex stay design with maximum vibration absorbing technology
  • Vertical compliance (5.5mm/kN) for smoother ride, reducing rider fatigue
  • Inverted oval stay with extended strut design to increase control and promote efficient power transfer
  • The result is a high performance, comfortable bicycle, smooth over the long haul but quick and nimble up and down the hills.

HIGH PERFORMANCE DISC BRAKESDisc Brakes

As the first bicycle manufacturer to equip a high performance carbon road bike with disc brakes, Volagi Cycles has long been on the leading edge of road disc brake technology. Working along side some of the top component manufacturers in the country, Volagi Cycles has tested and perfected the integration of disc brakes on our bicycles. The entire line of Volagi bicycles can be equipped with offerings from a variety of different component manufacturers:

  • TRP Brakes – Spyre Mechanical, HyRd Hydraulic
  • SRAM – 700-S Hydraulic, Red 22 Hydro
  • Shimano – BR-CX75 Road Mechanical
  • Hayes – CX5 Road Mechanical
  • Avid – BB7 mechanical

Imagine a sports car still using rubber pads on the rim for braking. There is a reason why almost every modern vehicle has adapted the use of disc brakes. Disc brakes perform consistently in wet, dry, hot and cold conditions–even with bent rims and broken spokes. Without rim calipers, you have the freedom to run larger tires, and full fenders for adverse road and weather conditions. And we don’t just slap on disc brakes. We carefully engineer our frames, hubs, and rims, and hand pick the rotor/caliper combinations to provide the best braking system without compromising weight or performance. Welcome to the disc brake revolution.

VOLAGI™ AERO FRAME DESIGNAero Design

A cyclist riding 20 mph can use more than 80% of their energy just fighting the wind. This means if a cyclist is riding all day on a double century, they are unnecessarily fighting that invisible liquid we call wind. Every segment of the frame from the fork, down tube, seat post and rear stay has been optimized to be as aerodynamic as possible, while retaining the stiffness and strength for handling and efficient power transfer.

  • Aero formed tubing for time trial like bike performance.
  • Engineered to reduce wind drag while maintaining stiffness for power transfer.

MONOCOQUE FRAME DESIGN WITH HIGH MODULUS 30/24T CARBON

Ride quality has as much to do with geometry as frame materials, which is why we have selected the best carbon lay-up to keep you rolling sun up to sun down.

  • Monocoque design for strength and stiffness.
  • Nano carbon particle with Smooth Wall layering construction
  • All Liscio Models built with a blend of 30/24T Carbon
EXTENDED HEAD TUBE

A more balanced position improves performance over distance and over a period of time. We designed a slightly longer head tube to optimize rider position to endure mile after mile.

  • Tapered 1-1/8” to 1-3/8” tube design for stiffness and control
  • Allows better fit and position for comfort and position.
TIRE CLEARANCEWide Tire Clearance

Options are virtually limitless when you can switch from your 23mm wide racing wheels to your 40c 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 40c tires or 32c tires with fenders. Ride from pave, to gravel, to single track in one day and then do it all over again. The Liscio boasts clearance for 28c tires or 25c tires with fenders.

Chris King Gourmet Century (Sonoma) ride yesterday was a great route with fantastic food stops. Silver Oak was one of the first wineries I visited when I turned 21 and one of my favorites to collect, had to stop for the snap. ... See MoreSee Less

A great ride on Saturday at Levi's Gran Fondo. 103 miles and 7900' of climbing. Less than a year ago I would have said "no way can I do this ride", but training on my Liscio has opened a new world for me. I love this bike and the cycling goals that it is helping me to achieve...and I now like climbing! Looking forward to more miles and climbing... ... See MoreSee Less
