Touring Bikes for Travellers & Urban Cyclists
Vivente bikes have changed from the classic on-road touring bikes we’ve been making since 1981. Since then they’ve become adventure bikes and all-road bikes with wider touring handlebars. Also they include room for bigger tyres, lower gears, and an ability to handle harsher use. But they remain the classic Australian on-road touring bike built for both light travellers and adventurers coming across rough roads.
Schwalbe Almotion tyres and a dynamo lighting system are real advantages in the city where it’s safer to leave your lights on all the time. If you are out riding and it rains, mudguards are a kindness to the cyclist behind you and the Tubus rear rack is perfect for both long trips and for when you grab some things on your way home from work.
The complete utility and comfortable touring bike handlebars and timeless style of a Vivente Bike is sure be everything you need for your next adventure. See our range below and find your next touring bike.
