New Vielo V+1 Race Edition is designed for wireless 1x groupsets only

If you want a SRAM eTap AXS single-ring groupset read on – otherwise, this bike isn’t for you

V+1 RACE Edition 1

Vielo’s new V+1 Race Edition is dedicated exclusively to wireless 1x groupsets and boasts a claimed 880g frame weight.


1x mechanical groupsets are out of the equation, with no routing for a rear derailleur on the exceptionally clean-looking frameset.

This currently means you’re limited to a SRAM eTap AXS groupset in either its Red, Force, Rival or Eagle/mullet guises, depending on your preferences and budget. Vielo will offer builds based on the XPLR versions of the first three as stock.

The Vielo V+1 Race Edition is single-ring only.

Brake hoses are fully internally routed. At the cockpit, they run through Vielo’s one-piece bar/stem.

Vielo’s showcase bike for its launch is kitted out with a SRAM Red XPLR groupset, along with Hope RX4+ brake calipers and Zipp 303 Firecrest wheelset. There’s also a 3D-printed saddle, Vielo carbon thru-axles and a red-to-orange fade paintjob, where the fade is made up of an array of tiny V+1 logos.

There’s no routing for a rear-derailleur cable or wires, so you’d better like SRAM.

The Vielo V+1 is in its second generation, with tyre clearance now up to 50mm and a 1x optimised symmetric chainstay/bottom-bracket junction that handles those wide tyres without a dropped driveside chainstay. Vielo says this offers 30 per cent more stiffness.

There’s also a wider down-tube to bottom-bracket junction, as seen on the Vielo R+1 road bike. There’s a new, stiffer fork with wider tyre clearance as well.

A new colour for the R+1 Strato

Vielo also has a new lilac colour option with gold highlights for its R+1 Strato road bike. It’s designed to go with the Campagnolo Ekar groupset.

It’s another bike that’s single-ring only, but in this case with drilling needed for the Ekar mechanical groupset’s cables.
