The Belgie just gets better & better
The Belgie is named after Melbourne's infamous "Belgie Ride" – a short, sharp multi-surface smash-fest that often resembles a CX race, rather than a road ride.
Yet in 2015, the Belgie was introduced to the world when Jesse Carlsson shot across the US on one, winning the 6,800km Trans Am Bike Race by over 500km.
Since then, the Belgie has won crits, raced at a national level and is the bike chosen by legendary Belgian, Kristof Allegaert, arguably the world's fastest endurance cyclist.
Now we introduce the best Belgie yet, the Belgie V3.
The evolution of the Belgie continues. We've taken feedback from riders such as Kristof Allegaert, paired it with our learnings from the Belgie Air and combined it all into the Belgie V3.
We've straightened out those seat stays and removed the old "brake bridge" for a new sleeker (reduced weight) and sexier behind. Tyre clearance now increases to 32C.
The new tapered head tube is taken straight from the Belgie Air and now utilises an integrated headset for some gram shedding and some sleek aero gains.
The fork has also lost some weight and gained some extra stiffness.
Are you an "Extra Medium" or in-between sizes? Check out the geo chart below and you'll see that we've introduced more sizes to get the Belgie fitting you like a silky glove.
Thanks to some clever engineering, the frame is now both electronic and mechanical groupset compatible. So you can forever switch between eTap, Di2 or Mechanical shifting options.
The Belgie is lighter and yet more versatile with increased tyre clearance. This race bike is just as comfortable racing a crit as it is exploring the back roads of the alpine region.
At the core of each frame is a 3Al - 2.5V Grade 9 Aerospace grade titanium tube-set. This grade is optimal for the manufacture of bicycle frames and has been chosen for its balance of stiffness, compliance and durability. Titanium absorbs road noise without compromising on performance - there’s no buzzy feedback, it’s smooth as silk and very compliant - so you can spend more time on the bike.
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 toughest conditions.
The Curve Crew grew out of Melbourne, Australia and have expanded across the globe. Curve riders everywhere share the same ethos - a Curve is more than just a bike: it’s a tool that can change your life. It can be for pure fun, for pushing boundaries, and for seeking freedom out there on the road.

|What’s the turnaround time for a Belgie Disc?||Framesets will be ready to ship from mid-Jan 2020 and will take 2–3 weeks to ship. If the size you need is out of stock, or if you have ordered any custom modifications, the frame will take an additional 6–12 weeks to go through production. 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 to you anywhere in the world, however check out our Stockist page to find for 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 Disc 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 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 starts from $950.|
|When shipping direct, how does a complete bike come finished to me?||Each bike 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 preformed by an experienced bike mechanic.|
