Trekking Bars

Trekking bars offer lots of alternate hand placements, so you can always find a comfortable position.

Rohloff internal gear system with carbon belt drive

Rohloff 14 speed gear system with Gates carbon belt drive. Rohloff hubs are safe from mud and other foreign bodies while maintaining incredible gear efficiency.

Steel Frame

The famous World Randonneur chromoly steel frame keeps style, class and strength in mind. Our Chromoly touring bike steel frames are built to last through heavy conditions.

More Features

Rear carrier with strap

Able to carry up to 40kg this tubus rear rack will mean longer tours without breakages. We have even supplied a strap which fits around the rack perfectly.

Kick Stand

At only 365g this sturdy touring bike kickstand will let you prop your bike up in most places. This kickstand is pre-installed and designed to allow your bike to stand even when it's fully loaded with luggage and gear.

Integrated lighting

Powered through a dynamo hub. You power your own lights.


Mudguards, also known as fenders offer you protection from debris and water that you tyres might pull up from the road.

Steering Stabiliser

A steering stabiliser creates a resistance in your steering to pull the front wheel to centre whenever possible. Vivente Bikes use an elastomer stabiliser to minimise noise and maintain constant resistance.

Tools & Spares

All Vivente Rohloff bikes come with all the tools needed for assembly, packing and maintenance. Plus some spares.
