Vielo V+1 UDG with SRAM Rival
When we launched the V+1 we built what we considered to be the ultimate performance bike, in the ultimate specification. Since then, we've look at ways to offer a Vielo frame with a more affordable group set.
The V+1 UDG frame comes from the same mold as the V+1 UD. The only difference? the carbon layup we use is more economical meaning it's slightly heavier but also reduces the price. In the end, the difference between the frames is only an extra 220g. Crucially the ride performance and characteristics are the same.
We think of it as a go anywhere speed machine. But in reality, it’s much more than that.
The V+1 is an exercise in painstaking attention to detail. A quest to find the perfect combination of compliance, stiffness and acceleration that helps British riders go where they want, as fast as they want.
About this bike
This is the V+1 UDG frame in Dusk Blue, with light blue and orange details. The UDG frame 880g for the frame and 400g for the fork. We've built the bike with a complete SRAM Rival group set, teamed with DT Swiss CR1800 wheels with WTB Riddler 37mm Tan Wall tyres. It's the latest bike in the Vielo family, but features the same ride performance and charm as the V+1 UD reviews you've read.
8/10 Road.cc "Verdict: Smooth and composed road plus bike from a British brand with exceptional attention to detail"
The Vielo V+1 UDG Rival Edition is a smooth and stable road plus bike that's a lot of fun whether you're riding smooth tarmac or broken tracks. It's not quite as light as the original V+1 that we reviewed last year, but the difference is small and it exhibits that same assured performance and attention to detail.
