ONE BIKE. MORE ROADS. MORE ADVENTURES.

The Allroad Model A/1 embodies the true notion of designing a more capable all roads bike. Pragmatically designed for gravel, dirt, pavement, mud, and all other types of adventure “roads,” everything has been intelligently considered and incorporated into a machine you won’t want to put down—weight reduction, more durable componentry, variable wheel size compliance, corrosion-proof inner and outer tube coating, and, most importantly, redefined superior fit and feel. All of these advantages carefully engineered into one bike provide for a ride feel that will drive you to roam farther across every terrain.

VAAST A/1 Allroad Super Magnesium bikes provide internal cable routing and replaceable rear axle thread plates, and are adventure-ready with fender and rack mounts.

Available in two specifications, 650B wheelset and 700C wheelset, the VAAST Model A/1 line was specifically designed to achieve lightweight ride longevity and minimal maintenance. They give the rider threaded bottom bracket cups to eliminate creak and use the leading Enduro bearings with the greatest load capacity. Practicality has been applied to design considerations like wheel axles: We use readily available standardized replacement parts to keep you moving forward in any corner of the world. We’ve optimized ride performance by incorporating the most trusted component brands in the business, like Shimano, SRAM, Stans, WTB and Maxxis into a full package that fits and feels like no other.

-ALLITE® Super Mag™ Frame
-VAAST Full-carbon Disc With Rack & Fender Mounts
-Stans Tubeless ready rims with Maxxis Rambler Tires
-VAAST Allroad Pro cockpit and WTB saddles

A SPORT PERFORMANCE POSTURE
RIDE BETTER. RIDE LONGER. ADVENTURE FARTHER.

Our redefined V-Fit parameters account for more than just fitting your body type and measurements. They create a riding posture that is more attuned to an enhanced feel, quicker reflexes and steer control, and responsive climbing ability. A more upright riding position suits the rider who isn’t hell-bent on a podium finish. Our V-Fit helps balance your physical ability to control actions in the cockpit, resulting in a more confident approach to riding different surfaces. Ultimately, combining V-Fit with our exclusive lighter, stiffer, and more shock-absorbent Super Magnesium frames delivers a remarkably comfortable fit and feel in a performance bike. The longer your body feels good, the farther you can extend your ride, and, ultimately, the more adventure you can pack into each day.

LIGHTER. STRONGER. PROFOUNDLY BETTER.

VAAST Bikes® are the first to use ALLITE® SUPER MAGNESIUM™. This high-strength alloy features excellent shock absorption properties, weighs 33% less than Aluminum and 50% less than Titanium by volume, and is significantly stronger than both. Through the exclusive use of this eco-friendly metal, we have achieved a ride feel like no other.

-Efficient power transfer makes for easier climbing.
-Shock absorption properties neutralize much of the road buzz.
-Frame weight rivaled only by Carbon Fiber.
-PEO surface treatment technology for added corrosion and wear resistance.

PRACTICAL ENGINEERING.

We work hard to apply discipline and practicality to design and engineering considerations to develop better, more reliable bikes that will keep you moving forward in any corner of the world. Wheel axles for example: we use the most readily available standardized performance replacement parts that the industry relies upon. We have also developed replaceable dropouts for when axle threads wear.

A VIBRANT ECOLOGY.

The human race has become a geological force that’s changing the conditions for life on our planet. This is precisely why VAAST® has made a steadfast commitment to defining and growing a vibrant cycling ecology—we want to ensure generations of riders to come have the opportunities to create more riding adventures, not fewer. When you ride a VAAST Bike, you join us in this pursuit.

Bicycling Magazine says:
"The A/1 feels solid but lively. Magnesium’s damping characteristics feel closer to steel and carbon than aluminum, a sweet spot that provides decent vibration reduction and a springy, direct pedaling experience."

PELETON says:
"The A/1’s vibration-dampening prowess through the low-frequency buzz of gravel is quickly apparent. And the frame’s low weight also shines through, with the bike finding comfortable pace quickly. And with quality components it’s a capable off-road bike that’s quite a bit of fun."

Velomotion says:
"The A / 1 with its innovative frame made of magnesium offers a successful overall package, which should be aimed at sporty touring riders due to its smoothness, seating position and equipment."
