Lightning systems and dynamos

Beleuchtung Fahrrad


In all Velo de Ville bikes a two-core cable is laid - in order to avoid cable breaks in the frame tube and mudguard. This defines, along with the shock-proof mounting of the rear light under the luggage carrier, the lighting concept of a VELO DE VILLE bike which is based on safety and low-maintenance. In terms of headlights and back lights, we opted for components from the German manufacturers Busch & Müller and Trelock, as well as the French manufacturer AXA.
