The Joy of Cycling

The Kopenhagen Classic Gents has a number of key features that make it such a pleasure to ride:

  • Our Kopenhagen Classic Dutch-style GentS cycle comes with a traditionally lugged and brazed hand built frame, which ensures a relaxed and ultra posture-friendly cycling experience at all times – widely referred to as sit-up-and-beg style. This gives a high vantage point from which you can view the traffic, as well as making it easy to look behind you and soak in all of the sights and sounds of your surroundings as you cycle past. This upright riding position means no stress on the lower back or shoulders – it’s as comfortable as sitting in a chair!
  • The frame comes in three sizes – 54/57/61 cm – so you can choose what fits your height perfectly.
  • An optional Velorbis own sprung leather saddle in a choice of two colours will gradually mould itself to your own shape giving the most perfect seat. Alternatively, a gel saddle in black or brown has a natural softness to give a great ride.
  • Top-quality Schwalbe tyres are 50 mm wide to give extra comfort and suspension over bumps and lumps in the road. They come in a choice of brown, cream or black. The tyres use kevlar anti-puncture technology and have all built-in reflectors on the tire walls.
  • The iconic diamond-shaped frame, fork, mudguards, chain guard and wheel rims can be coloured to your own specification from a choice of over 200 colours.
  • A beautiful and traditional commuter bike with a timeless, traditional aesthetic and flawless build quality, Kopenhagen Classic Gents is solid, durable, and reliable with an exceptionally versatile load-carrying capability.
  • Are you looking for a nicely integrated front carrier? Our range of front carriers and crates can withstand a cargo load of up to an incredible 25 kgs. The range of Velorbis bicycle front carriers is Velorbis’ own design and made of aluminium and has an exclusive wooden base. Even if it is loaded with heavy cargo, your bike remains easy to balance. The secret to our easy to steer crates and carriers is the fact that it is attached to the frame and not the handlebars, so it does not move when you turn the handlebars.
  • The wheelset has been equipped with lightweight alloy rims and stainless steel spokes and a luxurious leather mud flap in three optional leather colours that all match the similar coloured Velorbis leather saddles and Velorbis leather grips.
  • Traditional classic style commuter bicycles tend to be heavier than carbon bikes, racer bikes mountain bikes, etc. Kopenhagen Classic Gents has been produced with our traditionally lugged and brazed hand built frames from the highest quality German steel.

Superb Functionality

The Kopenhagen Classic Gents bike is not only beautiful, but it’s also practical too!

  • Enclosing the gears protects you and your bicycle from all types of weather, hence they involve much lower maintenance than the derailleur systems found on most bikes. Another advantage of internal gears is that they are very simple on the outside and come with a chain guard. This is a much cleaner option allowing you to ride in any clothing you choose rather than having to wear specialist cycle gear. Kopenhagen Classic Gents comes with Shimano Nexus internal gears and is available in single, three or seven-speed options. The seven-speed bikes have two brake options: 1) Choose either the Scandinavian style (back) pedal brakes a.k.a. coaster brakes or 2) choose the two-handlebar brakes option, where we have replaced the rear pedal brake with a roller brake hub, allowing freewheeling.

Depending on what you generally need to carry, there is plenty of luggage carrying options for the Kopenhagen Classic Gents:

  • Velorbis’ own designed and Danish-made rear carrier. The rear carrier has an innovative bag hook on the side so that you can carry your Velorbis leather laptop bag on the side of your bicycle. A special anti-theft locking mechanism ensures that your leather bag is securely held in place when cycling.
  • A range of exclusive front carriers or crates (high, low)
  • Four different, spacious and iconic baskets so your shopping, briefcase or gym kit can be transported with ease.

Enclosing the chain in a semi or fully enclosed chain cover and equipping the Kopenhagen Classic Gents with mudguards and leather mud flaps means that you arrive at your destination free from splashes, oil or dirt from the road.

Finally, the double kick-stand gives your Kopenhagen Classic extra stability when parked.

Safety First

Urban cycling isn’t without its dangers so you’ll be happy to see these important safety features on our Kopenhagen Classic Gents bike:

  • The upright riding position gives you a great view of your surroundings and the other traffic on the road.
  • The bike comes with the option of either 1) a strong battery-powered LED retro lamp set or 2) internal dynamo powered front and back lights with LED and built-in parking lights, that ensure the light is on even when the bicycle is stopped at a red light.
  • A powerful bell is included
  • The Kopenhagen Classic comes with an Axa Defender integrated frame lock with two keys.

Added Extras

Not all of our lives are the same and some of us might need a few extras.  Here are just some of the possibilities.

  • Kopenhagen Classic is the perfect marriage of retro styling and contemporary functionality and can be seamlessly integrated into your everyday life. This bicycle can also be upgraded to an Elechic e-bike version with the Velorbis eDrive360. If you have a longer commute or live in a hillier environment, why not take the option of adding an electric center motor to your ride? A Velorbis eDrive system can be added with our iconicly shaped removable lithium battery with 360WH /10AH.
  • Make your bike a mobile business card by adding advertising logo plates under the frame or on the rear carrier.

Choose the right model

The Kopenhagen Classic Gents is one of our most popular bikes but is it right for you?  See how it compares to others:

  • If you want a bit more speed, maybe look at the Arrow Sports Gent’s bike. Instead of the upright handlebars, it has the forward-leaning sporty stem and straight handlebars combined with the ultra-thin 28 cm wide tires to give less traction.  The Velorbis leather saddle option is a sports model that is specially designed for different riding positions.  To keep the bike light, a single kickstand and narrow tires are used.
  • Is the journey to work over a rather bumpy road or do you enjoy leisure biking on unpaved country tracks? If so, then maybe your best option is the Kopenhagen Balloon bike – similar in most aspects to the Kopenhagen Classic but with the distinctive 60 mm wide tires that will make you float across even the most uneven roads.

Many of our models look very similar in design and especially our models Kopenhagen Classic, Kopenhagen Fusion, and the Arrow Classic. Below are the main differences between the models:

  • Kopenhagen Classic has 50 mm wide semi-balloon tires for extra suspension and added comfort
  • Kopenhagen Fusion / Arrow Classic have 37 mm wide tires for added agility and a more sporty ride
  • Kopenhagen Classic has coloured (60 mm) wide mudguards (optional 200+ colours)
  • Kopenhagen Fusion / Arrow Classic are equipped with narrower (42 mm) polished stainless steel mudguards (colours not available)
  • Kopenhagen Classic has a 70 cm wide set of handlebars with an 8 cm rise from the stem
  • Kopenhagen Fusion / Arrow Classic both have a narrower 55 cm wide set of handlebars with a 5 cm rise from the stem
  • Kopenhagen Classic has a sturdy double kickstand – Kopenhagen Fusion / Arrow Classic have a single kickstand
  • Kopenhagen Classic has a leather mud flap at the end of the front mudguard (available in 3 colours) – Not available on Kopenhagen Fusion / Arrow Classic
  • Kopenhagen Classic weighs app. 2 kgs more than the Kopenhagen Fusion / Arrow Classic
  • Kopenhagen Fusion / Arrow Classic are both built on a 5 cm shorter sports frame whereas Kopenhagen Classic has a 5 cm longer cruiser type frame for a more relaxed cycling experience
