OUR STORY

OFFICIALLY VELUSTA WAS FOUNDED IN 2018 BY FOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL CYCLISTS. BUT ACTUALLY THE BRAINCHILD FOR THIS COMPANY STARTED MORE THAN TWELVE YEARS AGO. DUE TO A LACK OF CYCLING SKILLS WE OFTEN FELL WHEN WE WERE LITTLE. HOWEVER WE KEPT PRACTICING, PUSHING THE LIMITS AND REACHING EVER HIGHER SPEEDS. THEN IT HAPPEND… OUR FIRST CRASH AT HIGH SPEED. THE PAIN, THE LONG AFTERCARE AND ESPECIALLY THE SCARS STILL REMIND US OF THAT CRASH TODAY. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY FOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL CYCLISTS DECIDED TO MAKE A CHANGE.

WE STARTED THIS DREAM WITH A CLEAR OBJECTIVE: “MAKE CYCLING SAFER WITHOUT EFFECTING THE PERFORMANCE“. AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF DESIGNING AND TESTING PROTOTYPES, WE FINALLY CRACKED THE CODE. SINCE THEN, VELUSTA HAS WON MANY AWARDS AND WE ARE READY TO SHARE OUR ADVENTURE WITH THE WORLD.
