Velorbis unveils the limited edition Leikier gents bicycle
Copenhagen, September 2009 – Velorbis, the creator of iconic designer classic bicycles, has linked up with the renowned Danish designer and blacksmith Lars Leikier to create the new limited edition Leikier gents bicycle.
The two Danish design forces of Velorbis and Lars Leikier have combined their visions to craft a bicycle of beautiful geometry and sublime ergonomic comfort.
In 1992-1993 Lars Leikier originally played with the idea of forging a bicycle inspired by the retro 1950’s motorcycle designs. The distinctive Leikier patented frame is hand-made in Denmark from reinforced steel, as are its special edition steel chopper style forks.
Velorbis has embraced this magnificent bicycle frame and has added its luxurious, top-quality components, brown leather accessories and signature cream Fat Frank tyres.
The Leikier is a ‘classic with a twist’ upright bicycle - elegantly robust. As reported recently in the worldwide press, the trend of the bicycle as the accessory for modern living is alive and kicking. A bicycle is a statement about individual style.
The Velorbis Leikier bicycle is a design icon that will appeal to design connoisseurs and bike collectors everywhere.
“When design matters”
Velorbis was born from the hunt for a top quality sit-up-and-beg Dutch style bicycle with a stylish and iconic design aesthetic that reflected the elements of world-renowned Danish design and cool Copenhagen cycling culture. They couldn’t find what they were looking for in the bicycle industry so decided to design their own. The rest is history...
Velorbis supports global urban sustainability and green transportation initiatives and its aim is to encourage as many people as possible to adopt a stylish two-wheeled approach.
Velorbis has opened an exclusive new concept store in Copenhagen, Denmark to cater for their growing popularity in the Scandinavian market. They also plan to extend their network of concept stores in other major European cities in the near future.
Velorbis are currently expanding their worldwide retailer base and are focusing on primary markets such as Scandinavia, the Republic of Ireland, Germany, Norway, Austria, Belgium, Romania, Poland, Spain, the US and Australia.
