What makes Volagi different?
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 Ti 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 Titanium Tubing The Viaje Ti is constructed from heat treated 3AL-2.5V(3.5% Aluminum and 2.5% Vanadium) titanium tubing, mated with a carbon tapered fork with a full carbon steerer. 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 titanium used for the Viaje Ti 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 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 Ti has wide enough clearance for 40c tires or 32c tires with fenders. Ride from tarmac, 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 Ti, your bike needs to be as resilient as you are. The Viaje Ti 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.
