THE VLAANDEREN: High performance road for the competitive spirit.

We know that saying it’s fast is cliché, but it is. In fact, it’s not just fast, the Vlaanderen is a damn rocket from Hades. It’s asphalt-crushingly stiff and yet paradoxically comfortable to ride. With a raw performance that is tempered by balance, the Vlaanderen is not only fast and agile but also stable and solid.

PREMIUM CARBON I SEMI-MONOCOQUE CONSTRUCTION

The Vlaanderen was conceived and designed through research, trial and real-world testing. It's created using a simi-monocoque construction of the highest quality T700 and 24M high and medium modulus carbon from Toray Japan, combined with a proprietary carbon made in-house. Made using precise CNC'd molds to create a consistent and exact outer form, each frame takes dozens of man-hours: from the layup process, to several stages of hand-sanding and painting. But frankly, a bike can have all the best engineering in the world, but what's most important is the way it rides.

STRUCTURE & GEOMETRY

The Vlaanderen features a BB30 bottom bracket system and massive chain stays for power transfer, a tapered steer tube for precise handling and an integrated seat mast to convey all those lovely road sensations straight to the rider. The Vlaanderen also features a rare integrated seat mast, which allows micro vibrations to travel uniformly through the frame and greatly increases road feel.  The geometry was developed to be a good all-around competition rig: as comfortable on day-long rides as it is confident in hectic criteriums. Take it down a high-speed descent and you’ll really see where the Vlaanderen is a true stand-out; its slightly longer than typical wheelbase give it confidence-inspiring stability while its rigid front and rear end give you the power to carve the corners.
