Cruise through the City on a bicycle with balloon tires
Get ready to cruise through the streets and get the full joy of riding on a balloon bike.
Velorbis balloon bikes are created for those who enjoy cycling through the city streets on a bicycle and like the attention that comes with it.
A bicycle with balloon tires is characterized by smaller, but taller, tires which are wider than normal. Therefore, there is more air in the tires so you get optimal suspension and an incredibly comfortable experience of riding – even when riding on bumpy roads, forest paths or cobblestone streets.
Ride with style, perfect colour, and just the right equipment
We’ve been fussy about every design detail and now you get the chance to give your balloon cycle the last, important finish. This means that you can pick and choose colours on the frame, fork, mudguards, chain guard, and rims. In our design tool, you have 200+ different colours to choose from, incl. a new metallic look in gold, chrome or copper. In our customization tool, you can also choose your preferences about saddle, grips, and no. of gear and add extras such as luggage carriers front and rear or baskets and even an ad plate with your logo if you have a company. In this way, you a standard bicycle into a true head-turner.
A quality frame that lasts!
When you buy a Velorbis balloon bike, not only do you get a comfortable bicycle that stands out from the crowd. You also get a product of the highest quality. Velorbis is one of the few bicycle manufacturers in the world that uses classic lugged steel frames when building our bikes. We use this type of craftsmanship because the lugged frames make the bikes more robust and you can therefore expect to enjoy your balloon bike for up to 10-15 years if you also maintain and service it periodically.
Get pure pleasure from riding
All Velorbis bikes are hand-built at our factory in Germany. Here we take great pleasure in the craftsmanship of the entire production process so that we can deliver the best quality design cycle to you. We combine the old artisanal traditions with new and modern technology. That’s why our balloon bikes aren’t heavy – like balloon bikes used to be. Bicycles with balloon tires emerged as early as the first half of the 20th century. Here they were made for bad weather conditions, but the heavy tires made it hard and difficult to cycle. Today is just the opposite. The 60 mm wide tires roll lightly and effortlessly through the streets, making your ride a pure pleasure.
