Rigidity + reactivity + comfort  urban pedaling pleasure

 

The frame of Unica is quintessential Italian-style bike crafting. Skillfully welded from high quality steel frame tubes, the Unica is designed to be as stiff and light as a racing bike frame, at the same time optionally offering the convenience of quick and easy folding to fit into a car trunk, on a train rack, or in an elevator.

 

UNICA is your best friend  both in off-saddle jump starts as well as in high speed swings.

But it also efficiently transforms the spinning of your legs into immediate speed along straight city avenues.

RIGIDITY COUPLED WITH SMALL 20-INCH WHEELS MAKE UNICA EXTREMELY REACTIVE.

UNICA Anticipates your twists and turns, building on your starts and stops alongside city traffic.

Just imagine you have some extra power in your legs -- that's the feeling you’ll experience.

No battery charge left? No problem, you can ride the UNICA as a normal bike, and what a bike!

Ride Urban Minimalism

Each Unica is really unique, assembled to your specs once you choose frame type (folding or fixed), handlebar, color, and optionally install our beautiful black mudguards.

The Unica's frame is inspired to design principles that go back to the ‘70s. At the same time its folding frame is evocative of Graziella, an iconic bike manufactured in Italy during the 60s.

Thanks to the very light power equipment and the minimalistic frame design, Unica weighs as much as a standard mechanical city bike. While riding your Unica, push your pedals -- the Unica returns performance so you can more efficiently power your bicycle. Unica is a fast bike also when the BIKE+ hub is turned off.

Electrical assistance, optimally transferred to the road by the Unica design, gives you the extra boost you need for sprinting at traffic lights and racing up the city's hills. Let the Unica help you move faster and save your energy. Electrical power is basically used only when really useful -- in general, less than on an ordinary e-bike.

Create your Unica

 

You can customize your Unica by selecting the features you like best. Each Unica is assembled upon order in our workshop in Milano, before being shipped to your reseller, who will then assemble and test it before handing it over to you. Our resellers can assist  you when ordering the bike directly through this website in a dedicated area. 

To help you in your choice, here are a few example configurations of the Unica to inspire you before ordering.

 
 

You can find a list of Vrum Bike official resellers here.

We prefer that you buy your Unica at one of our resellers, as they can provide technical assistance and personalized recommendations. However, If there are no resellers close to where you live, you can order directly the Unica at our online shop. In this case we'll ship the product directly to you and you'll have to assemble it by following the instruction manual (don't worry, it's easy).
