Premium IBDs sought to stock brand, hand-made in France

Velobrands to bring Cyfac to the UK

Velobrands has taken on its first bike brand for UK distribution – Cyfac.

Velobrands is taking up the mantle from previous distributor Boutique Bikes, which introduced the French brand to the UK market.

Marketed as an alternative to mass produced offerings from the Far East, Cyfac frames are hand built –‘not hand assembled’ – in the Loire Valley, France. The bikes themselves can be customised and fine-tuned to suit individual requirements.

"We are very pleased to move forward with Velo Brands and their dedicated distribution team,” said Cyfac co-owner and export director Eric Sakalowsky.

"We see a strong resonance between Cyfac and the passionate UK cyclist who is looking for top quality, uniquely-crafted products that go beyond the mass-produced varieties from China. With a focus on service and a commitment to delivering a truly exceptional frameset, we look forward to working with Velo Brands as they show our beautiful creations to the UK cyclists."

VeloBrands is looking for premium IBDs for all its products and enquiries should be directed to Luke Humphreys on 07713157523 or email
