AND BACK AGAIN.

THE URBAN MODEL U/1

The Urban Model U/1 exists to get you anywhere a paved route will allow you to go on a daily basis in a surprisingly comfortable way, and then some. Everything has been intelligently considered—weight reduction, more durable componentry, variable wheel size compliance, corrosion-proof inner and outer tube coating, and, most importantly, redefined superior fit and feel. All of these advantages carefully engineered into one bike provide for a ride feel that will inspire you to skip the ride-share app and go it on two wheels, all day, every day.

COMMUTE. ADVENTURE. FITNESS.

VAAST U/1 Allroad Super Magnesium bikes are super lightweight, with internal cable routing and replaceable rear axle thread plates, and come to you adventure-ready and trail-hungry with carbon forks and plenty of tire clearance supported by fender and rack mounts.

Available in two specifications, 650B wheelset and 700C wheelset, the VAAST Model U/1 line was specifically designed to be a do-it-all companion both on the streets and on the provincial trails. With AE81 magnesium frames and a choice of components, these are amongst the lightest and strongest bikes on the market.

All models are designed with a modern and capable 1X drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, progressive geometry and beautiful and durable colors. Reflective decals and tire sidewalls keep you safe on the dusk adventure ride or the dawn commute.

A SPORT PERFORMANCE POSTURE

Ride better. Ride longer. Adventure farther.

Our redefined V-Fit parameters account for more than just fitting your body type and measurements. They create a riding posture that is more attuned to an enhanced feel, quicker reflexes and steer control, and responsive climbing ability. A more upright riding position suits the rider who isn’t hell-bent on a podium finish. Our V-Fit helps balance your physical ability to control actions in the cockpit, resulting in a more confident approach to riding different surfaces. Ultimately, combining V-Fit with our exclusive lighter, stiffer, and more shock-absorbent Super Magnesium frames delivers a remarkably comfortable fit and feel in a performance bike. The longer your body feels good, the farther you can extend your ride, and, ultimately, the more adventure you can pack into each day.
