Welcome to our world
The team behind the Veltra project is proud to introduce an eco-friendly bike that looks and rides like no other bike you’ve seen before.
Our story began in 2012, when we decided to make the perfect bike for riding through the city. We began with a simple premise, to give people a maintenance free bicycle, that is eco-friendly and has a unique design. Thus, after many years, endless research and dozens of tests, the bamboo bicycle was born; a breathtaking bike that delivers excellent riding quality and control.

Why bamboo to build a bicycle?
Bamboo is a premium raw material, being used in a nearly unimaginable range of products. It is the second best natural absorber of CO2 after algae and it produces up to 35% more Oxygen than trees, resulting in a super green material. Bamboo has several characteristics that make it the perfect material for building a bicycle: high strength-to-weight ratio, vibration dampening, and sustainable growth.
Our team expanded over the years and today it consists of 6 professionals which invest their entire energy and passion in building a bike that turns heads. From industrial design to technical evangelist, from sales to manufacturing our team contains a set of energetic people ready to bring their best and deliver first of all an experience followed by the most eco-friendly bike in the World.
All Veltra bikes bring together the finest materials and stunning design to create something very special. We believe in quality, care, and creating unique products that preserve the environment. Diverse, creative, and inspired by what we see everyday, our team represents what we love about the world we live in. We hope they will inspire you too.
