FEATURE - THE OFFICIAL RACE BIKE
The official bike partner for the 2017 Series has been Viking Bikes.
Viking Bikes have always embraced the needs and aspirations of its riders since the brand was launched in 1908. Today, Viking offers a range that fits all rider’s needs, from the traditional road bike through to modern electric bikes.
The 2017 official race bike is a slightly modified Viking Urban Myth 700c Hybrid fixie bike. This is the bike used by all StreetVelodrome competitors, be they pro riders or amateurs.
The model was chosen because away from the rigours of the Viking StreetVelodrome Series the Urban Myth is an ideal city commuting bike offering a comfortable riding position thanks to its well designed frame geometry.
This cleverly designed geometry means riders enjoy a superb riding position improving their bike handling and control, perfect for StreetVelodrome racing.
The Urban Myth is based upon the simplicity of this design. Clean lines and a freshness hold to the build and is evident throughout, finished in a striking Chrome which again draws your attention to the cleanness of the design. The Viking Myth has a flip flop rear hub so it can be rode as a single speed free wheel or fixed wheel bike.
The race version has dropped handle bars with slightly modified brakes and are always ridden as a free wheel. An excellent choice as a commuter bike for work, college or university. Yet thanks to its sleek design it makes a fun leisure ride too.
