Helius Travel.

August 18, 2010

The Helius Travel is essentially a Helius CC that is designed to be able to be ‘folded’ and stowed away in a specially made bike bag, making it easier for the rider to transport it to his or her riding location. We’ll show you how it works later, but for now let’s just sit back and have a look at the first ever Helius Travel in Singapore.

This Helius Travel features a subtle and timeless Black Anodized finish for the frame and rocker links.

Easton EA70 Monkey Bars. Thomson stem. Magura Marta SL’s with Goodridge hoses. Reset headset. Not forgetting some good ol’ ODI Ruffian Lock-On’s.

2011 RockShox Revelation RLT Ti. That’s Rebound, Lockout, and Threshold.

Hope Pro 2 hub laced to a DT Swiss XR 4.2D rim with Wheelsmith spokes. Maxxis Ardent tyres.

By the way, we stripped the paint out from the rims to get a raw finish, and we also had custom made stickers ordered for it too.

The gussets are designed like this for a special reason.

Truvativ Stylo Cranks. NS Aerial Pro pedals.

The owner of this Helius decided to have his name and his wife’s name etched in the seatstays.

Now it’s time to figure out how to get this Helius Travel ‘folded’.

The Helius Travel bike bag from Nicolai is packed full of little pockets and features.

Every compartment is built for a specific reason and we were blown away by just how much thought went into it.

There you go.

The bike bag can be carried as a backpack as well. Just be careful when you’re walking around in crowded/narrow places. You’re bound to bump and knock into a lot of things. Haha.
