The first connected bike featuring performance tracking, security sensors & interactive feedback to radically change the way you ride. Valour is the ultimate combination of safety, connectivity, design, and simplicity. It introduces the practical integration of technology into the daily commute.
Valour is designed with safety in mind. Unique to the industry, Valour incorporates integrated technology for advanced personal safety. Valour’s turn-by-turn navigation keeps your eyes on the road and your hands on the bar. It uses low energy bluetooth to connect to your smart phone for directions. LED indicators signal as you approach your next turn.
Ride in comfort knowing that the Valour’s sensors have got your back covered – literally. If an object comes too close for comfort in your blind spot, your handlebars will alert you via haptic feedback. Nothing can replace good old-fashioned spatial awareness but we can certainly lend a helping hand.
On-board sensors measure your calories burned, distance traveled, speed, best times, and much more. Stay fit and feel great by turning your everyday commute into a fitness ride.
Ergonomic excellence. We think riding a bike should be fun, not painful. We strive to remove discomfort from the commute and replace stress with delight. Engineered for comfort, the Valour design encourages a more comfortable riding position. Our unique ergonomic design relieves pressure on your back, spine, and buttocks, while providing optimal power transfer and an unmatched comfort level. The shoulders, back of the neck, and hands take a greater share in supporting the load, resulting in a more versatile, active riding style.
We are equipped with Ergon for ergonomic saddle, pedals and grips.
Smart Carbon Fibre Manufacturing. Valour is constructed with carbon fibre and the internal tube design is inspired by nature. Using our carbon fibre manufacturing technology, each bike is individually molded as a unibody frame. Valour’s internal wall structure is inspired by the same principles that strengthen our bones allowing it to withstand extreme three-dimensional stress. Unibody molding guarantees complete structural strength and production ease, ensuring a bike that’s as reliable as it is affordable. Valour’s strength is matched only by its weight. At a mere ~16lbs, the Valour is light enough to de-stress any tricky commute.
