Great Lengths: Distance 60 29er

Great Lengths: Distance 60 29er

An exciting day for our French friends Victoire Cycles: Today they launched their new brand Distance, an extremely well-thought-out and designed series of ready-made bikes. This 29er is the first to fly.

There will be six different models available, each being released over the next few months. The Distance 35 was a gravel grindeur unveiled previously, and the Distance 60 showed its face today.

All frames will be built with Columbus steel and are TIG welded, enabling a much quicker turnaround for customers than the super boutique Victoire creations. A multitude of build options, sizes, and seasonal colors are available.

The 60 is a trail-ready 29er with modern geometry and a wishbone-style rear triangle, featuring a subtly-swept set of seat stays. It’s obviously a burly frame representing Auvergne’s engineering reputation, albeit with a distinctly French elegance.

The model featured today is set up with some of the components offered to the customer, like a SRAM Eagle drivetrain, Hope, Tune, Mavic or ENVE wheels, Chris King headset, Formula Cura brakes, and even a Helmut Equipment luggage option.

Thomson, Tune or ENVE finishing kits can be installed, with Formula 33 forks for XC purposes or 35 forks for the trail. Other details on the list are WTB or Michelin tires, Fizik or Brooks saddles, ESI grips, and the option of classic or telescopic seat posts.

While we’ll never tire of the beautifully crafted Victoire custom bikes, the new Distance models make us want to take it out and get dirty — keep an eye on the Distance social media channels for updates to the range.
