The Belgie is affectionately named after Melbourne's infamous "Belgie Ride,” a short, sharp, mixed terrain shop ride that often resembles a CX race rather than a road ride.
In 2015, the Belgie was introduced to the world when Jesse Carlsson raced across the US, winning the 6,800 km Trans Am Bike Race by over 500 km.
Since then, the Belgie has won crits, raced nationals, and is the bike chosen by legendary Belgian Kristof Allegaert, arguably one of the world's fastest endurance cyclists.
The Belgie V3 is a combined version of the original Belgie and our Belgie Air based on feedback and real-life testing.
We've straightened out the seat stays and removed the old ‘brake bridge’ for a new sleeker and lighter behind. This means better tyre clearance, up to 32 mm. Upfront, the tapered head tube is taken straight from our Belgie AIR and utilises an integrated headset for some gram shedding and a sleeker finish.
Are you an ‘extra medium’ or in-between size? Check out our sizing and geometry chart below and see that we've introduced more sizes to ensure your Belgie is the perfect fit.
Thanks to some improvements in engineering, the Belgie frame is now compatible with both electronic and mechanical gear systems. So you can now have your pick of eTap, Di2, or standard mechanical options.
At the core of each frame is a 3Al - 2.5V Grade 9 Aerospace grade titanium tube-set. This grade is optimal for bicycle frames and chosen for its stiffness, compliance, and durability balance. Titanium absorbs road noise without compromising on performance. There’s no buzzy feedback; it’s smooth as silk and very compliant so that you can spend more time on the bike. The Blegie V3 is just as comfortable racing a crit as exploring long climbs in the alpine region.
Curve titanium frames come with a Lifetime Warranty so that you can be sure the bike you love most will be the bike you love longest. We design every Curve product at our Abbotsford headquarters, then test them out in the real world, under the most demanding conditions.

|What’s the turnaround time for a Belgie V3?||Depending on stock, complete bikes generally take 8–12 weeks to build after a 50% deposit has been paid.|
|Do you ship to my home town?||We can ship your Belgie V3 to you anywhere in the world, however, check out our stockist page to find your local Curve Crew to help you out. NB: International orders may be subject to import duties and local taxes.|
|How much is a complete bike?||Complete bikes built with SRAM Force AXS 2x12 and G4T wheels are available from $9,999AUD. Get in touch with us or your local Curve dealer for custom build options.|
|Can I get my frame custom painted?||The Belgie V3 frameset comes standard as a two-tone titanium frame and satin black carbon fork. Australian customers can order custom paint for an additional cost. We collaborate with a local painter, VeloCraft, and all custom finishes are quoted according to the complexity of the job. As a guide: fork paint starts from $350, ⅓ frame and forks start from $950.|
|When shipping direct, how does a complete bike come finished to me?||Each bike is built and boxed to "90% complete" with the fork steerer uncut and bar tape is not wrapped. We do this so each individual can personalise their setup options. This final procedure should be performed by an experienced bike mechanic.|
