“Aviero: The name comes from the region in Portugal where these bikes are manufactured. We are new to this area and wanted to pay tribute to the region and the people who welcomed us here.”

“For many years we have been building Titanium bikes using traditional manufacturing techniques: CNC machined parts, welded with round and formed tubes. Our classic gravel frame Groont is all about it: CNC half yoke, CNC dropouts and flatmount brake.”

“With the new Aveiro 3D we have gone all modern: we designed the chainstay yoke and the dropouts to be 3D printed out of 6-4 titanium. These parts are almost seamlessly welded to the tubes of the frame. The printing takes place in Spain, and the frames are manufactured, and complete frames assembled, at our production facility near Aveiro, Portugal.”

“The bike accepts large tires, has a relatively short rear end, long front-center and a slack head angle. These features provide more stability when riding through technical fire roads and the bike is a lot of fun when descending. It has less road bike DNA than most current gravel bikes but you can still use wide type road cranksets and light and fast wheels making it a do it all fun and adventure bike. The geometry is the result of our rides across local forests where at any minute a smooth gravel path might turn into a rocky technical descent. Not optimal for a classic gravel bike, but perfect for a bike with control over all terrain surfaces like our Aveiro 3D.”

This frame is almost complete

“The frames are in production right now and we will hold a stock of all popular sizes. However a customer can also order customisation of a any frame, to include additional options such as cargo mounts, special finishes, anodizing, etc.”
