Pedal Sabot"For urban use, commuting, touring, and light off-roading, the Sabot definitely delivers the goods." - GravelBike.com Many VO staffers like large pedals, so we wanted to produce a high quality large-platform pedal that would be comfortable even when riding in thin soled shoes. We tested them in minimalist running shoes, leather dress shoes, hiking shoes, and even sandals. Of course this style of pedal is great for urban riding, but we see other uses, too. More and more bike packers, long distance tourists, and adventure cyclists are riding with big BMX style pedals, and these make a more refined alternative. The two-sided platform is a CNC-cut aluminum extrusion. It has loads of real estate to eliminate pressure points and all - approximately 100mm wide and 100mm long. There are 12 replaceable traction pins on each side of the pedal to offer great grip even when wet. We include rounded pins with the pedals so as not to damage street shoes, but they are easily replaced with more aggressive sharp pins. Most existing pedals with large platforms use either loose ball bearings or are designed for BMX or downhill riding and use durable, but stiff, bushings. We designed a chromoly spindle that uses three sealed bearings, two inboard and one outboard. This makes for a very smooth pedal; it feels like a high-end road pedal, and the bearings are easy to replace. Weight is 408g per pair. Uses 6mm hex (Allen wrench) as well as flats (15mm pedal wrench) for easy installation and removal. Platform size: 100mm x 100mm Pin style: 12 rounded Bearings: Sealed cartridge Weight: 408g per pair Available in Silver and Noir Includes reflectors, additional rounded pins, and pin wrench. Compatible with toe clips and straps Price is per pair.More info & order

Campeur Rear RackThe VO Campeur Rack is designed for touring and commuting. It features a fully tubular stainless steel design with an upper deck and lower rail system. The lower rail keeps weight low and allows for easy pannier removal, even with the top platform loaded with a tent or dry bag. Stainless steel construction with a lovely, high polish finish. It won't rust like painted steel racks or fatigue and crack like some aluminum and powder-coated or painted racks. Long, lower rail helps gets your pannier further back to eliminate heel clipping. Straight, upper arms securely mount to your bike's seat stay bosses. There are a pair of eyelets under the top platform for direct mounting to the fender. A single rear, threaded eyelet is for a light mount. The top platform is 10 cm wide and 27 cm long. From the top of the rack to the lowest hole is 36.5cm. The lower tangs feature four sets of holes to fit most bikes with 26", 650b, 700c, and 27" wheels. Simply trim what you don't need or use the bottommost hole for an easy and quick installation. Maximum weight is 40 lbs.More info & order

Porteur RackThe VO Porteur Rack is a traditional-style rack as used on the famed Parisian newspaper delivery bikes. Those Parisian delivery bikes were reputed to carry as much as 110lbs. of newspapers on similar racks (of course, the bikes had strengthened frames and forks, not just racks). Our Porteur Rack is made from strong stainless steel tubing and polished to a lovely shine. It won't rust like painted steel racks or fatigue and crack like aluminum racks. The quality is actually superior to that of many custom racks. In short, this is a real load-carrying rack, not an aluminum "style-rack". Yet total weight with rail, nuts, bolts, etc. is only 1.079kg. The platform is about 36cm x 29cm. A removable rail attachment is included and very handy for smaller packages. The tangs are pre-drilled to fit 700c, 27", 26", and 650b bikes. There are four bosses for a light attachment. There is a boss for securing your fender to the rack -- no rattling! Please also note the elegant pannier/tie-down loops above the mounting tangs. Mounting hardware is included. The Porteur Rack mounts to the dropout eyelet and the brake bolt (or fork crown hole). Max weight with this configuration is 25 lbs. You can use our Straight Arms for Campeur Racks, Compression Hardware, and a pair of p-clamps around the rack's tube if you are running super heavy loads and want more stability. You can load it up with 40 lbs of gear if you use this configuration.More info & order

Decaleur KitsDecaleurs are traditional quick-release mounts for handlebar bags. Unlike some modern bag mounts, they keep the bag low for better handling and for keeping the handlebars clear. The VO fork mount decaleurs are mounted on the fork's steerer tube either below the headset lock nut or within the spacer stack. Full stainless steel construction Available to fit 1" and 1-1/8" forks Works with most traditional-style bags such as Velo Orange, Acorn, Ostrich, Sologne, Berthoud, TA, LaFuma, and similar Receiver uses a 3mm thick spacer Bag Mount uses 6mm posts Mounting hardware included Posts are 8 cm forward of the front of the headset ring Please remember that a decaleur is intended as a quick-release mechanism, not a support for the full weight of the bag; the bag must still rest on a rack or on the fender. Fork mounted decaleurs can be bent slightly to adjust the bag's height, but they might not work with very tall or short frames (for those frames we recommend a front rack with an Integrated Decaleur). Note: We strongly recommend that you use at least one strap or elastic cord, in addition to the decaleur, to secure your bag to your front rack. If you hit a large bump or pothole, it is possible that your bag could bounce up, detaching the bag from the decaleur receiver.More info & order
Constructeur Front RackThe Constructeur Front Rack is a medium sized front rack that attaches to your fork's dropout eyelets. It's simple design is perfect for a handlebar bag, tied-down dry bag, or basket. All Velo Orange racks are made from polished tubular stainless steel, so they will never rust or flake, and can be re-polished to a mirror shine even after years of use. As with our other racks, there are light mounts on the side of the platform. The height of the rack from the lowest hole on the tang to the bottom of the platform is 37cm. The platform is 20cm long and 10cm wide. The tombstone (backstop) is 9.5cm tall. There are three holes in the lower tang so that it can be cut to give your bike a real Constructeur-style. 6.8kg maximum weight capacity. Please note: This rack does not fit suspension forks.More info & order
Randonneur Front RackThis is a stainless steel front rack that is perfect for a handlebar bag, tied-down dry bag, or basket. All Velo Orange racks are made from polished tubular stainless steel, so they will never rust, flake, and can be re-polished to a mirror shine even after years of use. As with our other racks, there are light mounts on the side of the platform. The platform is 20.7 cm long and 10.2 cm wide. The tombstone (backstop) is 9.5 cm tall. If you plan on getting into offroad exploration, we suggest using a toe strap on the bottom of your bag to ensure it says put over the rough stuff. If you are getting a custom frame made, we suggest sending the rack to the builder beforehand and let them know that the eyelets should be about 100mm below the bottom of the fork crown. 5.4kg max weight capacity. All mounting hardware is included. Compatibility note: Your fork's eyelets need to be 100mm from the fork crown bolt. Anything larger than that and this rack probably won't work.More info & order
Randonneur Front Rack, CantileverThis is a stainless steel front rack that is perfect for a handlebar bag, tied-down dry bag, or basket. All Velo Orange racks are made from polished tubular stainless steel, so they will never rust, flake, and can be re-polished to a mirror shine even after years of use. As with our other racks, there are light mounts on the side of the platform. The platform is 20.7 cm long and 10.2 cm wide. The tombstone (backstop) is 9.5 cm tall.

Randonneur Front Rack with Integrated DecaleurThis is a stainless steel front rack that is perfect for a handlebar bag. The decaleur (bag mount receiver) is integrated into the rack platform. The advantage to this system is: your bag-decaleur-rack combination is more solid, lighter, and less likely to rattle. Integration is the Holy Grail of Constucteur-style bikes, and we feel that these racks are a big step in that direction. All Velo Orange racks are made from polished tubular stainless steel, so they will never rust, flake, and can be re-polished to a mirror shine even after years of use. As with our other racks, there are mounts for lights. The platform is 20.7 cm long and 10.2 cm wide. Most traditional style handlebar bags work perfectly with this rack (any bag around 20cm tall), but very tall bags may need a longer bag mount. If you plan on getting into offroad exploration, we suggest using a toe strap on the bottom of the bag to ensure it says put over the rough stuff. This rack requires eyelets (not low riders) on the fork blades or the use of p-clamps (included). If you are getting a custom frame made, we suggest sending the rack to the builder beforehand and let them know that the eyelets should be about 100mm below the bottom of the fork crown. 12lbs (5.4kg) max weight capacity. All mounting hardware is included. Compatibility note: Your fork's eyelets need to be 100mm from the fork crown bolt. Anything larger than that and this rack probably won't work. In that case, we suggest the VO Flat Pack Rack for greater adjustability.More info & order
