"One year ago today I took my first ride on my new Volagi Viaje. 5087 miles later I'm loving it more than ever!" -Cindy Janetzko, customer, 1/5/14
Viaje XL: Perfect for Roads, Trails, and Light Portage
+ Steel Frame: 4130 double-butted cromoly coupled with our Longbow FlexStays hits the sweetspot. An 1-1/2" lower headset bearing maximizes steering precision and adaptability of aftermarket forks. Post-mounts bring a nice, clean look to the brake caliper area. + Big tire clearances. The 4130 Steel Viaje XL allows for up to a robust 700x42c tire, which truly creates bit of an identity crisis: road bike or mountain bike? Cross bike or touring bike? Particle or wave? It's a bike, just ride it! You can decide what Viaje means to you and let the pundits argue what it should be. For tires, try Soma's Cazadero or WTB's Nano 40c (Bruce Gordon's Rock N Roads will work, but keep it to dry conditions). Even with fenders it will clear 700x35 tires just fine and we'd recommend SKS Longboards in 45mm for that custom feel (and you can even match the color). + Standard 135mm rear hub spacing gives you plenty of disc-specific hub and wheel options.
+ With slight modifications from our Liscio geometry, we maintained the agile road bike handling and out-of-the-saddle responsiveness while increasing the comfort level of a more upright posture. + Full cable housing routes externally along the down tube simplifying the installation and optimizes shifting and braking performance. + Internal routing for Shimano Di2 is standard allowing for a clean look for those of you turned on by the beauty of the curved lines of the Viaje. + Disc-brakes decrease hand fatigue while increasing safety and control under all riding conditions.
+ Monocoque carbon fiber fork with carbon steerer is impressively light without compromising strength. The fork is as TOUGH as they come and ready to handle even the gnarliest trail or 100 miles of gravel. For comfort, try lowering your tire pressure down 5-10 psi and your hands, arms, shoulders, and many other body parts.. will thank you for it. + Frame exceeds all safety requirements for EN 14781 for road bikes and the disk brake frame mounts exceeds EN 14766 for mountain bikes requirements. + Designed in the U.S. by Volagi Cycles.
