OCL™ FRAME JOINT
ADVANCED FOLDING TECHNOLOGY
The key to any folding bicycle is the frame, and specifically, the folding joint at the heart of the frame. Done well, it locks the two halves of the frame together without any hint of movement or sound. It should be easy to operate and work flawlessly year after year. The OCL Joint does all of these things and is a new reference in folding frame technology.
PHYSIS™ 3D HANDLEPOST
THE NEW BENCHMARK
Five patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest folding handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.
ADJUST TO FIT
The Andros is our patented adjustable stem that lets you set your handlebars where you want—no tools, no fuss. In just seconds, you can set your riding position to long and low in a tough headwind, or upright and comfy for riding around town. You decide how you want to ride and the Andros makes your bike fit.
When you ride around the city, you want to take it all in. Our swept-back handlebars let you sit comfortably upright so you can see everything that goes by. And a more natural grip position is extra kind on your wrists.
VELO ERGONOMIC LOCKON GRIPS
BE KIND TO YOUR HANDS
ErgoLock grips are nice and wide for excellent palm support so your hands can relax during the ride. They also lock in place on the handlebars so they’re always in the correct position, unlike non-locking grips which tend to rotate out of position.
SCHWALBE BIG APPLE TIRES
CUSH FOR YOUR TUSH
Big Apples are special because they’re fast rolling AND super comfy. Sounds hard to believe but you’ll just have to take them for a ride to become a believer.
HEY GOOD LOOKIN’
The Freelance Fenders have a hidden rear stay design to keep the design of the bike clean and uncluttered. But good looks wouldn’t mean much unless they did a great job of keeping road spray off you. And that’s just what they do.
Don’t let the clean lines of the Freight Rack fool you―it’s ready to get to work hauling your stuff. The upper deck is made from oversized tubular aluminum so it’s very stiff―even when fully loaded.
