"Tom and Gabriel, I wanted you to have this bike ASAP and it is fresh out of our assembly. You are the first bike shop in the nation to have the bike since you were the first one to place the order since we started exploring the idea of hydraulic disc brakes. We waited until we felt TRP had perfected their hydraulic system, even though it made our production late, and we are confident that this provides the best in the market since they have been testing their system for the past two and a half years."
Essentially, this is a bike we have been waiting for for a long time. We have built disc brake road bikes before anyone else in the industry were offering them, and it is great to have companies like Volagi finally bringing these ideas to production, at a higher level than we have been able to produce so far. The hydraulic brake system is a major improvement from the mechanical brakes of previous models, the electronic shifting reduces maintenance and increases shifting reliability in nasty weather conditions, while the carbon rims and frame provide a lightweight and comfortable ride with amazing handling. The disc brakes eliminate any wear on the carbon rims, so the material can be better distributed for strength and ride quality. This one has just about every new technology that is available for road bikes!
Besides the high-tech equipment, the bike is extremely well thought-out. It has fender mounts and clearance for full fenders without having to cut them down or finesse them. It comes specced with 25c tires. The position is designed for a slightly more upright riding posture which is more comfortable for riding long distances.
The 57cm bike weighs 18 lbs and 6oz by our scale, with test ride pedals. It sells for $6295. Both of the mechanics who worked on it and test rode it said it was the best road bike they had ever ridden. This isn't a prototype any more - these are now available to order!
Come in to see it and take a ride!
