“It’s adventure time, all the time, on this straight-up, solid touring bike.”
-Bicycling Magazine – April 2015
“Aimed at tourists and commuters who take the back roads rather than the A roads, the Vaya is a supremely adept machine that’s at the very top of this particular tree. If a law were to come in that said we could only have one bike, we’d be tempted to dispose of all our other bikes and just have one of these. It’s rare for a bike to have the ability to make you smile every time you swing a leg over it, but the Vaya does just that.”
-BikeRadar – July 2010
“The bike gets better the longer you ride it. When you set off you're maybe thinking of how much faster you'd be on that racier steed you've got stabled in the shed, but a few hours in and you realise you're looking around at stuff, you're comfortable and you're enjoying yourself. You might not have gone quite as far, but you'll have seen much more.”VIEW ONLINE
“The Vaya is a fun bike. It’s fun with a load and without. It’s fun on the road and on mixed terrain. It’s fun to ride leisurely and to hammer. It is one of the most versatile bikes on the marketplace right now. If you want a bike that is capable of loaded touring, but also doesn’t feel like you’re dragging an anchor around when you’re not on tour, then the Vaya is for you.”
-The Path Less Pedaled – December 2012
