VORB Virtual-Orb


You might have noticed a new menu option up in the top left of vorb, that's right virtual orb is live!

With the extension of lockdown across New Zealand, we've decided to let you have the fun we've been having behind the scenes.

It is free to try! All you beautiful vorbii will get five kilometres free riding credit, to ride where you want. Keep that lockdown cabin fever at bay.

Purchase extra riding credit after your free credit at one cent per kilo. No Subscriptions, you only pay for what you use.

To celebrate this release, we will be doubling up the riding credit for the first 10 purchasers

Virtual riding has exploded in recent years, but existing platforms have focused on competitive cyclist and corralled you to ride where they want you to ride. What if you want to ride where you want to ride? Got a special place you've always wanted to tickoff your bucket list? Or just wanted to ride your local trail when the weather outside is too much? With Virtual Orb you choose where you want to ride. We use Google Streetview to allow you to ride virtually anywhere on the planet. Streetview now covers a huge percentage of the planet and it's not just on the streets. For locations not covered by Google Streetview you can choose to ride using Google Maps overhead view, you can ride virtually anywhere.
