About our little company
Victoire is our manner to tell that we believe in things done properly and that we really love to ride bikes. Here is a page to learn a bit more on us and our convictions.
Reason to be
Victoire is a company who builds bespoke steel or stainless steel frames. Since 2011, we produce high quality bicycle in our workshop, entirely custom-made and for all types of practice.
We use steel and stainless steel based on solid scientific knowledges. We make our frames, forks, stems and luggages racks using the best alloy available on the market. We use the traditional savoir-faire and tools as well as modern techniques.
Our bikes are fully custom-made. From the morphology to the style of riding and also the specifications and aesthetic preferences, we operate on every aspects in order to create the perfect bike in your likeness.
Sustainability is a very important point for Victoire, so this is why offer a lifetime warranty for our first owner.
Victoire is a modern solution against overproduction and relocation in the bike industry. The conception, building, painting and mounting are all happening in one place. Victoire makes bicycles that have a low-impact on the environment. Victoire uses exclusively renewable energy from the only French company who offers 100% green power, Enercoop.
Victoire produces to order only, according to the customer specifications collected after many discussions. We do not produce anything unecessary or irrelevant.
For each project that is placed between our hands, we ask ourself the same question : what is the ideal bike for this use, for this person and in this context ? There are for sure as many answers as there are cyclists, but we realized by the years that some principles are constants. These are defining our manner to craft bikes and it seemed to us that it was interesting to share them.
The choice of steel for our bikes has not been made by default. It's the material that possesses the best mechanic properties, the one that offers the more flexibility in terms of design and it is also the most environmentally responsible.
On asphalt roads, pathes, pists, singletracks or sidewalks, it's each individuals riding pleasure that leads our choices in a project. Biking is a matter of pleasure before being a tool of performance.
Each realization offers us the opportunity to approach a bit more the notion of excellence : answering as fully as possible to a need, enrich our know-how, invent, improve the fabrication, perfect the bike.
A bike approaches perfection when you cannot remove anything else, when each choice is necessary and evident, that soberty wins on superfluous.
On a beautiful bike, nothing must be left to chance. We work with attention to the smallest details because they are the essence of the quality of our achievements.
Our achievements must be intemporal objects wich life span can be extended by fixing them or modificating them. It’s a necessity if we want to be ecologically responsibles.
