Vielo Sports launches own bike brand with 1× specific V+1

A disc-brake and 1× specific frame that can be ridden both on and off road

Editor's note, November 2021: This news story details the original V+1. Don't miss our 2021 Vielo V+1 Alto review covering the second generation bike.

Designed in Germany, assembled in Britain, the latest 1× specific frame has arrived from new bike brand Vielo. The brainchild of father-son duo Ian and Trevor Hughes, Vielo's first model will be the V+1, a road plus frame that will be able to battle loose gravel and light forest paths as comfortably as smooth tarmac roads.

The V+1 frame will weigh 890g and exclusively accept 1x groupsets with no provisions for a front mech. The bike will also be fitted with disc brakes and have the capability of taking 42mm tyres as well as discreet mudguard mounts designed for the adverse riding conditions of the UK.

The bike is built standard with DT Swiss CR 1600 wheels but has the optional upgrade of Lightweight Wegweisers although we wouldn't suggest taking these high-end wheels on gravel.

Another upgrade possibility is the RockShox Reverb dropper seat post that can have its operation integrated to the left hand shifter.

The frame, which is available here, will be priced at £2,999 with complete bikes available from £5,299 fitted with a SRAM Force 1x groupset as well as Vielo's own carbon seat post and handlebars.

The Vielo V+1 will be landing in 12 independent bikes shops in the UK as of February with the bike being showcased in the flesh at the Core Bike trade show later this month.

The new brand is also developing a small range of road bikes that it hopes to be released in July of this year.
