The Bulgarian brand’s history dates back to 2007 when former pro cyclist Damyan Nikolov decided to provide a team sponsored by two companies he co-owned with bikes. Bringing on board a team of engineers, he set about trying to build ‘the best racing bikes in the world’.
After sponsoring various teams in their short life, their bikes will be seen during the upcoming Vuelta a España as the sponsor of Continental squad Caja Rural, who include current Spanish U23 road race champion Ramon Domene Reyes among their number.
Given the brand’s background, their road range has a focus on carbon racing framesets. Vivelo supply framesets only, but Cycling Components offer full builds with kit from the likes of Fulcrum and 3T, starting from £1,895 with the Erg ES Shimano 105 through to the £4,195 Arc ES SRAM Red. Customers are also free to choose their own spec.

They also offer a frame customisation option called Personalised Frameset System. This allows customers to choose their own colour scheme, finish and name, and suits individuals wanting to stand out or clubs looking for their own identity.
