Those will carry you to the edge of the world - and back
The possibilities for transporting luggage naturally play a role in touring bikes – and literally a heavy one: Our designated specialists carry a full 110 lbs (50 kg) of load in up to four large bike bags on luggage rack and lowrider. A compact 20-inch rear wheel moreover leaves space for an additional transport platform without a too high centre of gravity negatively influencing the riding characteristics.
The well-ventilated medium-high ErgoMesh seat combines a comfortable sitting posture with a good overview. For those who like it sporty even when travelling, the low BodyLink seat with its breathable AirFlow cushion prevents a sweaty back. Relaxed riding means arriving relaxed, so it is best to rest your arms next to your body on an under seat handlebar. Hand rests provide additional support without effort.
When travelling you must be able to rely on your drivetrain at all times. In this respect a classic among globetrotters is the robust and practically maintenance-free Rohloff hub gear. Like the Rohloff Speedhub completely encapsulated and thus protected from external influences, is also the Pinion bottom bracket shifting system/internal gear transmission. With its small development in the lowest gear, even steep climbs with luggage can be mastered excellently.
