R+1 One for the road
Unlike any other road bike the Vielo R+1 frame is engineered and designed to accommodate a 1x drive system only. Our focus is to provide the rider a huge performance gain in frame lateral stiffness around the BB area (30% stiffer than a 2x frame), additional comfort through chain stays and seat stays, plus some detailed aero touches.
The seat tube compliments the rear wheel with 30mm tyre and joins the BB area for further increased lateral stiff-ness. Using Differential Engineering Vielo have been able to distribute different functionalities to different structures withinthe rear triangle design. The goal was to take the wind off the structures which are in charge of comfort and lateral stiffness,but at the same time maximising the inertia of those structures. The ground parallel seat stay extension (from the seat tube)reduces the exposure of the wind in this area, creating less barrier pressure.
