Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Cinelli Veltrix. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

7 reasons to buy

  • The Veltrix is appraised for its ‘torsional rigidity’. Flex is minimal, resulting in efficient transfer of energy – toward pedalling power.
  • From an expert view, the geometry of the Veltrix was superb.
  • As far as appearance goes, this bike has been called beautiful, with paintwork and finish receiving praise.
  • The fact that this frame comes in sizes down to XS (Extra Small), means that it is available to all genders and younger riders.
  • On both climbs and descents, the Veltrix impressed.
  • For the high-end level of road bike received, one expert considered this to be an affordable choice.
  • The Shimano 105 and Cinelli componentry, left a positive impression on reviewers.

3 reasons not to buy

  • A consistent rattle was heard from the internal brake line in the down-tube (for one rider).
  • A buyer reported that they received an FSA crankset, rather than the higher-quality Shimano 105 that was depicted.
  • Rubbing on the front derailleur has been experienced, while the chain sat on the small chainring and small sprocket.

Bottom line

Cinelli’s Veltrix is another entry in the ever-increasing range of disc-brake road-bikes. Early reports from owner and expert alike, suggest that this is a stiff and responsive machine. It has impressed with its looks and neat finish, including internal cabling. Some minor issues, such as cable-rattle, chain-rub and inconsistent componentry were present – and probably shouldn’t be for a bike in this price range. As such, it is suggested that the buyer double-check the componentry provided by their retailer before purchasing.

Test Shimano 105 7020: Een Stapje Hoger (One Step Higher) – Cinelli Veltrix Disc

What a beautiful bike! Nice and affordable too. This makes switching to a racer with discs a breeze.
