Ultra-lightweight Aero Road Bike Vélos Holocene Has Both Performance and Sustainability 

Recycled Carbon Fiber Monocoque Framework

In a world where innovation is the key to success, Vélos Advancements introduces the Vélos Holocene, a cutting-edge aero road bike that pushes the boundaries of sustainable design. 

The standout feature of this bike is its recycled carbon fiber monocoque framework, which sets a new standard in eco-friendly cycling technology.

Recycling carbon fiber has become a trend in recent years, but Vélos takes this practice to a new level. The raw material for the Holocene’s framework doesn’t come from just any recycled after-product; it originates directly from high-performance, high-tech industries in New Zealand, such as aerospace and marine

This is possible through a strategic partnership between Vélos and leaders in these fields, creating a more sustainable method of building carbon fiber bikes.

The handcrafted and optimized frame design ensures easy repair and restoration. The Vélos Mast System eliminates the need for seat clamps, inserts, and wedges, reducing the likelihood of cracked frames and compression damage. 

At the front, the smart design eliminates fork crown and head tube damage caused by over-extension of the handlebar. This optimization enhances the bike’s durability and makes it a standout in functionality and design.

Unlimited Paint Design and Customisation 

While the recycled carbon fiber framework is a technological marvel, Vélos understands that the aesthetic appeal is equally important to cycling enthusiasts. 

The Vélos Holocene aero road bike offers unlimited paint design and customization options, taking personalization to unprecedented levels. 

Unlike other bike manufacturers that limit customization to pre-chosen options, Vélos Advancements allows customers to customize their bikes fully. 

There are no constraints; instead, customers meet online or over the phone with one of Vélos’s designers to discuss their unique vision for the bike. This approach ensures that each bike is one-of-a-kind, standing out from the crowd. 

Okay. What about the equipment?

The customization even goes beyond just paint design; customers have the freedom to decide on every accessory and technology, resulting in a genuinely bespoke aero road bike that reflects the individuality and preferences of its owner.

Customizable accessories include: 

  • Drive chain supplier 
  • Gear ratio
  • Crank arm length and type
  • Specific bearings
  • Power meter
  • Bars, saddle, pedals
  • Wheelset
  • Performance, Comfort, and Reliability

    The Vélos Holocene redefines the concept of performance by offering a unique and personalized experience for each rider. 

    While there is no single performance level for the Holocene, each unit adheres to the high-quality, premium standards set by the manufacturer.

    Aerodynamics is a critical factor for any aero road bike, and Vélos excels in this aspect. Since the FSA ACR system is the focal point of the frame design, all cable routing can be integrated, providing the frame with a sleek appearance and optimizing aerodynamics.

    Whether riders prefer an integrated stem-bar combo or the adjustability of a traditional bar and stem, Vélos provides both options in a wide range of bar widths and stem lengths to ensure a comfortable riding experience.

    The lightweight nature of the bike, while specific metrics are yet to be determined, significantly contributes to a fluid steering experience and excellent agility. 

    Vélos also claims that their carbon fiber fittings are not prone to debonding or corrosion, ensuring long-term reliability and performance. 

    Carbon fiber, known for its stiffness, durability, and performance, instills confidence in the rider, making the Vélos Holocene a trustworthy companion on any road.

    Pricing, Availability, and Delivery

    The Vélos Holocene aero road bike, with its groundbreaking features and customization options, comes with a price tag that reflects its exclusivity. 

    The price depends on the customer’s chosen customization options, ensuring each bike is tailored to its owner’s preferences. However, the base price starts from: 

    NZD 25,499 | £12,000 | € 14,000 | USD 14,800

    Vélos Advancements plans to build only 100 units of the Holocene in 2024, further enhancing its rarity and exclusivity.
