Efficiency in a ceiling fan means getting the most air movement out of the electricity (watts) that the fan motor uses. The Velo fan combines a strong motor with contoured blades molded of high-impact ABS plastic to deliver increased efficiency.
The Velo fan is available in either a bright nickel or gloss white finish and has an optional light kit for ambient lighting, available with either a halogen or fluorescent light source. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version. The three blades may be specified in either nickel or white and have a blade span of 50". The fan can accomodate a sloped ceiling up to 33°. For slopes over 33° but under 45°, use the sloped ceiling adapter (sold separately). Includes 5" and 13" downrods, for 16" or 24" overall height. Optional downrods available for alternate heights.
Notes: Express shipping is available on this item. In most cases, orders received before 12:00 PM Pacific time will ship the same day.

These are an awesome visual sight and efficient for our high designer showroom ceilings.
I received everything timely and in good condition as promised. Paperwork was immediate and proper. Salesman recommendations were appropiate for what was needed to operate efficiently.

Great look, but feels smaller in scale.
I really like this fan's shape, but had to get used to the three blades instead of the four blade one it replaced. Also, because the blades taper from large to small, it tends to look smaller in diameter than it really is.

Love it! It is quiet and looks very cool in my son's bedroom.
The look is very modern and fresh-which is hard to do with a,"fan."
By:Kathy R. , Homeowner (Tulsa, Oklahoma,USA)
We love it, it is quiet AND beautiful!
The price was competitive. The style is awesome, and performance is the best one yet. I have purchase 2 others from Modern Fan and they are all great, but I love this one!

We love it!!
Easy to install.

Looks great, works great
I am very happy with the Velo ceiling fan. I find most ceiling fans to be really ugly, so this one was a very pleasant surprise. It looks really nice and functions beautifully. The white finish looks very high-quality. The controls are easy to use.

Sharp looking fan
Really like the operation and look, bought two of 'em.

Wonderful modern high-tech looking ceiling fan
I ordered the Velo for my teenage son's room and he is thrilled with the modern high-tech look as well as the quiet and efficient air flow. The electrician said it was the easiest fan installation he's done in his 10 years of installing fans. I got both the wall control and the remote and would definitely recommend getting both for a bedroom. I then ordered a second Velo for my home office and it also was an easy installation and worked perfectly right out of the box. The fan is silent on "low" and "medium". There is a mild whirring sound on "high", but not enough to be bothersome. I doubt I'll use "high" anyway since "medium" creates a very comfortable air flow. I found Ylighting easy to deal with and would use them again.

I have two Velo fans in my solar/green building condo. Very good at night to cool the interior so I use less AC. They are beautiful, minimalist, very efficient and quiet. I recommend the longer stem (special order) for enhanced air movement. Very pleased.
By:PLM Architecture , Architect (Prospect, CO)
Extremely happy with this fan. It may only have 3 blades but in moves a tremendous amount of air and is very quiet. We purchased the halogen light option which thanks to the dimmer function covers the entire spectrum from floodlit down to mood lighting.
By:Ian , Homeowner (Southern CA)
I feel very lucky being able to find a fan with that level of quality, design and craftsmanship to my new kitchen.
Design, selection of materials and craftsmanship are just remarkable. Special attention to detail makes my Velo Ceiling Fan a great addition to my kitchen underlying its character and modern style.
By:Greg K. , Homeowner (State College, PA)
Very satisfied with this fan.
Very nice fan. The design is reminiscent of an aircraft propeller. I particularly like the fact that it has only three blades. This gives a cool, aerial look, much more inspiring than the clunky traditional ceiling fan. The low and medium settings are quiet and the contoured blades move a lot of air. No use for the high setting which moves too much air and is noisy.

As good as it looks
By:OAXA , Designer (Pasadena CA)
Sleek design, functional
Very happy with this Velo fan. Aside from its sleek, modern design, it works very well in circulating the air in our spacious loft. It's ultra quiet as well in low, medium and high speeds. Thanks Ylighting!

While not yet installed, we are anticipating this beautiful, modern design, being integrated into our Maui home.

Modern Fan Quality
Fantastic product. As always MF provides. Well made fan, great balance. I would like to see more electrical specs for integration into home mechanical.
By:John W. , Designer (Roanoke, VA)
Very modern, original fan with no sacrifice on features.
Had fan for about 3 months in bedroom, and very pleased. My bedroom is furnished pretty modernly, but with lots of wood, and the stainless finish compliments it nicely. Above even the design is the unit's features--I'm using it as the room's primary light source, and it's fairly warm while still being able to be powerful if needed. The remote option is also fantastic.
By:Lane S. , Homeowner (Yardley, PA)
Very happy with my fan
My fan is excellent-only sorry due to backorders it took a while to receive.
By:Happy Customer , Homeowner (NYC)
Great fan. Moves lots of air, even at low speed.
Bought two and one had a metal-to-metal squeak in it and was impossible to balance. The other is perfect. Modern Fan agreed to send another and take the one with the problem. Great service!!
By:Rob F. , Homeowner (Olympia, Wa)
I'm a fan of this fan.
Modern, industrial, sleek, architectural, minimal and quiet are just a few adjectives that come to mind when I think of the Velo Cieling Fan, which I've had for a month now. It hangs directly above my bed and even on high, only the sounds of the blades slicing through the air can be heard - the motor is nearly noiseless.

Review on Velo Ceiling Fan
We are just delighted with the fan.
By:Minerva C. (Houston TX USA)
By:Gary F. , Designer
Handsome, Efficient, and Silent!!!
This fan is definitely worth the price. While admittedly more expensive than your run-of-the-mill ceiling fan, it is worth it! The look is sleek and modern, but better yet, it performs magically. It is very, very quiet and even more efficient. My only recommendation is to get the 24-inch downrod if your ceiling is high enough. This will help the fan move even more air. It is currently 80 degrees inside my apartment, but feels like it is 72 with the fan above me!
By:Ignacio , Homeowner (Washington DC)
Vey modern and sleek
It is what we were looking for, something modern that goes with our style. very quite and effecient
By:Shamima H. , Homeowner (Laguna Hills, CA USA)
Quiet, smooth and modern fan fits in any room
My Velo arrived with wireless remote and no light kit (as ordered). Our electrician installed the fan on a barrel ceiling and got it up and running without a problem. I opted to control the fan both with the wireless remote and fan speed module (Lutron HomeWorks), fortunately we pre-wired 3 wires in order to support this mode, otherwise only one control method would have been possible.
By:Jonathan H. , Homeowner (Palo Alto, CA)
Great web site!!
By:Rachael B. , Homeowner (North Carlina)
Fabulous fan. I bought the fan because it was close to the ceiling. I'm really happy with how the fan looks in the space and how well it moves the air.
By:Rachael B. , Homeowner (Durham, NC USA)
Beautiful accent and great airflow
I love this fan. Have been looking at it for several years. Just bought a house that is ski lodge/rustic/70s style with high beamed ceiling in great room looking out at mountains - this fan absolutely gives a cool modern twist to the room. Additionally, it provides great air flow. The house does not have a/c (you allegedly don't need it in the mountains lol but hot is hot.....). So, I bought two of them for each end of the room and they more than compensates for the lack of a/c. Highly recommend the fan!
By:Jack S. , Homeowner (Green Mountain Falls, CO)
An awesome fan!
Slick design, silent and forceful.
By:Toots , Homeowner (Monroe, NJ)
Enjoying this ceiling fan. Produces lots of air flow. Very nicely put together
This I am glad I ordered. It gives off good bit of air flow. Easy on the eye. Well made as well. Good value for the. Obey
By:Leslie S. , Homeowner (Greenville sc USA)
I was very pleased with the service from Ylighting and the quickness that we received our product. The Velo fans we purchased were exactly what were needed for this project. The customer was very pleased with the end product.
By:Lori P. , Designer (Marietta Oh)
This is an exceedingly well made fan.
I'm very pleased with the product. It's made of high-quality materials, and it was easy to assemble. Assuming this fan is representative of its overall product line, I'll look for fans made by this manufacturer before considering others.
By:Robert M. , Homeowner (Atlanta, GA, USA)
Great Ceiling Fan!
The Velo Ceiling Fan doesn't just have a great contempory aesthetic, but is a really well manufactured fan. At first I thought that the blades were small, but the fan moves a lot of air and it is very quiet. Great Ceiling Fan!
By:David S. , Architect (Carmel, IN, USA)
This fan has great lines - very clean and modern.
I purchased the fan and remote for an outdoor patio location. The fan is beautiful and I can't wait to install it. YLighting's prices are great and the shipping is prompt. I am very pleased with my purchase.
By:Dawn (Austin, TX)
beautiful and quiet
we installed this fan in my husband's editing room. it is really good at circulating the air but even better it's super quiet!
By:L.C. , Homeowner (studio city, ca)
Clean. modern look.
By:Luis S. , Homeowner (Piedmont, CA)
modern ceiling fan.
this fan obviated the need for an airconditioner in my bedroom. It is beautiful and runs very quietly. I purchased both the remote and wall switch, but probably didn't need the wall switch. I had previously purchased the same fan, but with the lighting unit. That fan works wonderfully as well, but the lighting fixture is useless. It provides a very dim light, almost like a night light. I removed the lighting portion very after purchase.
By:Annie C. , Homeowner (new york, new york)
Saleswoman who knows something prevents mishap.
Wonderful customer service woman at YLighting advised and prevented me from ordering two fans that won't work with only one switch. Got this great mod fan, two, and they will work with one switch for both.
By:Koala , Homeowner (NY)
The product is great!
Product shipment, apperance, function and design are all just as expected. Very happy with the service and will be using YLighting for many projects in the future.

I have now purchased 7 VELO fans..outstanding company to work with.
By:William H. , Designer (Alexandria Va)
Fabulous modern design. This model was perfect because one can use one wall switch to control two fans. Some models you can not. Looks great.

The products looks beautiful and functions nicely.
I was first interested in the Velo fan becuase of the sleek design. Then I got excited when the price was about half of what I thought it would be. Now that it is install it runs quitely and produces a nice flow of air.

By:Hans U. , Homeowner (Ann Arbor, MI48103)
This is the third home we have installed Modern Fans in. The Velo looks great and works as well as it looks. I highly recommend.
By:J.P. , Homeowner (Austin, Tx)
Great Ceiling Fan!
The Velo Ceiling Fan is just the best ceiling fan that money can buy! This fan fits perfect into Modern and Contemporary Design. It has quiet operation and moves a extreme amount of air for its compact design.
By:David , Designer (Indianapolis)
It is so hard to find a clean and modern ceiling fan without a lot of frills.
I searched for a ceiling fan that wouldn't be distracting in a modern space. This fit the bill!
By:NJZS , Architect (San Francisco)
I needed a modern, relatively small fan and this fit the bill.
Very happy to have found this company and model. it looks great in the space!
By:NJZS , Architect (San Francisco)
Replaced rusted white fan. Instakk was not too difficult. Runs smooth and looks great.
By:D.W. , Homeowner (Jupiter, FL)
Hate Ceiling Fans, love this one!
Bought this fan in the all metal finish for a modern exercise room. Looks crisp, clean, non-obtrusive and works beautifully. Does everything a ceiling fan should without being ugly, as most others are. Great Product!
By:Allison , Designer (Boston)
Sleek and beautiful fan!
The beauty of the fan is only surpassed by its quiet operation and easy controls. The wall switch offers a full range of options -- not just off and on -- just like the remote. I definitely recommend this fan!
By:Linda S. , Homeowner (New Orleans)
Fan looks and operates great!
Fan is better than expected ! Some wrong parts sent though:(

Beautiful, Modern, Quiet Fan
This is the perfect fan. Not only looks great but is quiet with a strong motor. Highly recommend.

This fan has clean lines and moves lots of air quietly.
By:Bill , Architect (Ohio)
Great minimal, modern look
We were looking for a modern fan that wouldn't call a lot of attention to itself, and this one was perfect. Nice and simple, looks sharp, no frills. Works great, super quiet, more than enough airflow for our needs. The only part that was slightly goofy was the top housing didn't fit snug against the ceiling. (Had it installed on a 15' ceiling by a professional, so didn't get a good look myself, but something about the position of the screws.) But pretty minor, and probably something specific to the box it was installed on. Very happy, would buy again.
By:Jack , Homeowner (Boston, MA)
Great minimal look. Doesn't draw attention to itself, silent, perfect airflow for our needs. Very happy.

the modern looking velo fan from YLighting has improved the room.
By:Anthony G. , Homeowner (waxhaw NC)
Thrilled with the purchase. Couldn't be happier!
By:Vera G. , Designer (Naples, Florida )
Looks really good on my ceiling. Installed fairly easily, although one of the screws from the blade shredded the threading. So one blad has only 2 of 3 screws. Hope it holds up ok. Other than that, I'm very pleased.
By:Paul F. , Homeowner (New Haven, CT)
more beautiful than pictures. very quiet and efficient, would recomend to anyone. a bit expensice but worth the money
By:Greg L. (south florida)
This fan is truly fabulous -- it looks great, it works wonderfully, and everyone comments on it.
By:David G. , Homeowner (Washington, DC)
This fan looks sleek and you can really feel the affects of the various speeds of the fan. We purchased it with the light attachment and it really provides a nice lighting alternative in our bedroom.

Essence of form and function
This fan looks great.
By:Scot N. , Designer (San Jose)
We were trying to build a more modern contemporary styled home. This fan really gave the room a contemporary statement. We have 10' ceilings and this fan really looks great. We also enjoy how quiet the fan is. We have put the Velo in both bedrooms and the Gusto in the living room. Love the look!!
By:Peter P. , Homeowner (columbia mo)
It looks as good as its photo.
There are many wonderful fans out today as the state of fan design has greatly evolved during the last decade but the Velo Ceiling Fan stands out for price and looks. We are very happy with how it functions and the ease of installation.
By:InHousemark , Designer (San Francisco, CA, USA)
We bought 3 fans and after we were able to figure out how to control each one independently, they have been just what we needed.
By:Susan O. , Homeowner (NYC)
Had to switch the control as three fans are all within distance of being controlled by one remote - once that was done they have been just great
By:Susan O. (NYC)
Great Fan, Highly Recommended
The fan arrived quickly with the additional down rod included in the package. Incredibly easy to install (heavy!), and works like a dream. The air movement on high is incredible and it is all but soundless. Great fan, highly recommended.
By:Kyle G , Homeowner (Minneapolis, MN)
Beautiful fan. Great retro looks. Compliments the ceilings well.
By:william k. , Designer (San Antonio Texas)
Nice modern look, quiet performance. Will recommend to all my friends.
By:Igor Z. , Homeowner (Palisades Park, NJ)
Functional, sleek, moderate price.
This fan is sleeker than most and looks well in a modern decor.
By:Michael Z. , Homeowner (Muttontown, NY)
The fan is awesome looking!
We are very happy with the look and function of this fan. This is our second one and although the new one is not hung yet I am sure it will work just as well as the old one.
By:Joe F. (Jupiter, FL)
Stunning, quiet and efficient.
Love the fan. It has a contemporary look I was looking for. It runs very smooth, quiet and we need to keep it on the lowest setting. Very powerful and it gives great breeze, which we need in steamy Florida.
By:Sonja C. , Homeowner (Florida)
Q: Can multiple fans be operated from one remote control?
A: For the Modern Fans- as long the fans are fan only and do not include light kits, multiple fans can be operated from one remote. Additional receivers will need to be ordered for each additional fan.
