British brand Vielo revealed an updated range of its first performance gravel bike launched back in 2018. The second-generation V+1 Gen2 is fully 1x optimised and Vielo says it is designed as a “fast (race) performance gravel bike, rather than a fat tyre drop bar mountain bike or load-lugging, bike-packing type bike”.
The new Vielo V+1 Gen2 standard 1100g Strato carbon frame and lighter 880g Alto carbon frame have had a full redesign. Launched in 2018 the first V+1 gravel bike was critically acclaimed amongst journalists, dealers, and cycling fans around the world. Hot on the heels of the successful R+1 road bike, the second-generation V+1 Gravel bike builds on Vielo’s ethos of 1x only, lightweight, rider-focused, and tons of engineering attention to detail.
