This is the introduction of the stainless steel version of Viks GT.
Serial number “001” was treated with Verde Ithaca wet paint by us. This mean green machine is stylized and assembled by Vélowland. The official Verde Ithaca green paint job, the use of carbon black parts and the sharp edges of the frame should remind you one of the modern classics.
This GT was built out of the same steel tubes used for our famous classic framesets. The bike is equipped with Gates Carbon belt drive system for a smooth, clean and silent transmission. The premium tubular wheelset (88mm in front and track disc in back) is hand built by the British Walker Brothers. Handmade leather grips and a new slick cover for the Fizik saddle are made by Wim Hoogeveen (Holland). Vélowland turned this Viks into a fixed gear for a sportive ride. The stopping power comes from a combination of a small time trial lever and BLB CNC rim brake – minimalist, but efficient.
Can you imagine the thrill when this Viks met one of the sickest supercars in real life?! The one million euro, 750 hp powered machine was hauling and showing muscles to impress the two wheeler. The Viks GT was just….silent. It seemed to be a perfect match.
“Out of the box!” is a reaction often heard when people see this bike. In spring 2017 this GT will be appearing at Cyclingworld in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Steel vs Aluminium
It is your choice whether to have your Viks GT made from stainless steel or aluminium alloy. Steel makes it possible to play more with the surface. Imagine a brushed or a RAW in GT mode! A steel horse is definitely a stronger and stiffer ride, but aluminium alloy weights much less and it can be felt at once when riding – the bike reacts faster to pedalling.
