VELLO and RADLAGER

cordially invite you to the soft launch of VELLO bike, a newly developed folding bike.  

When?
Monday, 29.09.2014 at 19:00 at Radlager, Operngasse 28, 1040 Vienna. Starting at 20:00 Music Selection by Patrick Rampelotto.

The VELLO launch party is part of the Vienna Design Week 2014. Meet the designer & the team and test the bike! We will talk about the development of the bike, the challenges and solutions that have led to the innovations. The bike will be displayed at Radlager from the 26th of September onwards. 

VELLO bike will be presented -

a high-performance, hand-made and light bike with special features.

The VELLO bike is an ideal companion for the city. Its innovative folding mechanism makes mixed-mode commuting easy.

The three models “Urbano”, “Speedster” and “Rocky” are made for various riding styles: the Urbano is our comfortable city bike, the Speedster is our racing bike version and Rocky, the allrounder, is built to master the jolts of rough terrains.

Designed with love in Vienna!


With its 8 speeds VELLO Urbano conquers the city. Choose from a variety of colors for the frame, saddle and grips. A front carrier can also be attached. 

VELLO Rocky is built with trekking and MTB bike components. Equipped with tires for responsive handling, 10 speeds, and straight handlebars, it defies any rough patches in the city.

The narrow high-pressure tires and drop racing handlebar allow for an aerodynamic riding position and minimal rolling resistance.
It has 10 speeds and is equipped with some of the best racing bike components.
PRE-ORDER
 

Stay tuned! We will soon launch a Kickstarter campaign for VELLO.

Vienna Design Week 2013
28 Sep. - 06 Oct. 2013

Lohner's presentation at the Vienna Design Week. Valentin Vodev was commissioned to design the new electric scooter L125 based on the classical LEA 125 from the '50s. See the work in progress and the first sketches of this new electric scooter. Lohner-werke is one of Austria’s cult brands as they built the luxury carriages for the Austrian emperor and developed the first hybrid electric car with Ferdinand Porsche at the turn of the century. Later the company also became known for building aircrafts, trams, and scooters. More than forty years later, the Lohner offspring is reviving the family business. Lohner is on its way to enter the market again with its newly designed electric scooter L125.
