High-quality materials. Innovative design. Passionate craftsmanship. Through carefully selected components we create a product like no other.
We have carefully designed our Stratocrom tube sets together with our production partners. We use high-quality CrMo 4130 (chrome molybdenum) steel with specific wall thickness and butting depending its placement in the frame. Load-optimized tubes are individually selected for each model so we can achieve a balance between weight and durability.
Tout Terrain Adventure Fork II Option
The Tout Terrain Adventure Fork II carbon fork guarantees reliable luggage transport and convinces with unique features and low weight. Six mounting points with the specially developed threadless eyelet system reduce the load on the carbon sidewalls when picking up luggage. That allows a load capacity and reliability that is second to none. The included stainless steel bushings are completely interchangeable. Damage to a thread thus no longer means that the fork must be repaired at great expense. The fork has an installation height of 495 mm and BOOST hub spacing (15x110 mm). The concept of replaceable wearing parts continues with stainless steel cross nuts for brake caliper installation. It offers space for up to 70 mm (27.5"/29" x 3.0") wide tires, a Post Mount brake mount for 180 mm to 203 mm rotors and the option of internal brake line routing. Compatibility with dynamo hubs and the possibility of internal cable routing guarantee an elegant and robust connection to the power supply. Mounting options for lighting and mudguard (with an included aluminum bracket that elegantly hides between the fork legs) provide maximum flexibility to equip the fork perfectly for your adventure.
Cane Creek Helm II Option
The Helm Air MKII is the first major revision of the Helm fork lineup and improves on its predecessor in nearly every way. The Helm MKII newly designed damper features a new compression and mid-valve circuit for increased support and control while a new SKF oil seal head and 2.5 weight damper oil reduce friction and provide a more supple ride-feel. The Helm MKII redesigned air spring has a new air piston designed to reduce friction, an increased air volume for better traction and suppleness, and a threadless seal head for easier travel change. In addition to the updated damper and air spring, the Helm MKII features a variety of external usability improvements including easier to turn knobs and a D-LOC bolt-on axle.
The sealed Pinion gearbox is centrally located in the frame, resulting in a low center of gravity and the superb riding experience. Because of the weight distribution, the bicycle handles with exceptionally agility and dynamics. Depending on the application, the gear ratio spans from the urban C1.6 6-gear gearbox with an overall ratio of 295% to the P1.18 premium model with 18 gears and an overall ratio of 636%. Ergonomically, it is suited to both short and long rides with stance widths (Q-factor) of just 166 for C-line and 174 millimeters for P-Line gearboxes. It allows for both sporty as well as efficient riding, as the pedaling power is applied directly into the drivetrain.
Belt/Chain Tensioning System
Tout Terrain TBA (pivotable Pinion Bridge)
The function of the Tout Terrain TBA system is analogous to that of an eccentric bottom bracket - but for bicycles with a Pinion gearbox. The gearbox is rotated about its central suspension screw by a simple pivot. The TBA rotates the gearbox eccentrically, thereby tensioning the chain or belt. The advantages for you lie in the simple operation thanks fixed, rather than more complex sliding or rotating dropouts. Wheels are mounted and removed in the same way as in a traditional rear wheel. Unlike sliding or pivoting dropouts, wheel alignment is also consistent since the dropouts are fixed. The fenders are always the same distance to the tire, since the position of the tire does not change relative to the fender.
Tout Terrain Ergo-Stop
The Ergo-Stop is a small detail that makes a big difference. Many of us have experienced the moment - whether in a moment of distraction or with a heavy front load - when the handlebars turn suddenly and contact the bike, damaging wires, cables or even the frame. The Ergo-Stop consists of two elements – a stop integrated into the frame and a stopper mounted on the fork steerer tube. With the Ergo-Stop steering stop, handlebars can only be turned approximately 90° in each direction. This limit prevents cables from being torn off, your light system from being damaged, or your top tube being dented by the handlebars.
The "big" 29" wheel size is, in principle, a 28" (700c) wheel with tires wider than ~50mm. Ride characteristics are significantly different than that of a classic 28" (700c) wheel, and this has expanded the capibilities of bikes in various segments. Large-volume, large diameter tires offer the best comfort as well as outstanding rolling properties. These become apparent both off-road - assuming a sufficiently low tire pressure - as well on-road on touring and trekking bikes. The ability to efficiently roll over obstacles and road imperfections helps when you want to cover long distances. 29" wheels are well proportioned for large riders and are great alternative to classic tire sizes.
Optional Tubus Logo Touring Rack
The optional Tubus Logo rack is a classic among touring cyclists who appreciate the flexibility of a removable rack. It is manufactured from rugged CrMo 4130 and offers numerous possibilities for fastening bags. It is wide enough to transport a cargo bag, and has a second bag level to lower the center of gravity or mount taller panniers. If you'd like a bike with lighting, we route wiring within the rack to prevent it from getting in your way. The maximum load capacity is 40 kg.
Every frame is painted in-house with our robust and high-quality T-Coat powder coating process. This ensures a beautiful and durable finish even under the toughest conditions. The T-Coat consists consist of one, two three layers depending on the component - this allows us to optimise the surface, weight and corrosion characeristics for each use case.
Free yourself from oily, rusty chains and join the Gates Carbon Drive revolution: Clean, quiet, rugged. Almost no other component has advanced the bicycle as a mode of low-maintenance transport as much as the Gates Carbon Drive belt. Particularly when used year-round, you'll be pleased with its low maintenance as periodic cleaning is all that's required. Belts even last two to three times longer than a chain. Tout Terrain was one of the first manufacuters to offer bicycles with belt drives, and with more than 10 years of experience we have optimized our frames for this purpose. Unlike a chain which can ""unlink"" to fit onto a bike, a belt is seamless, so the frame must "open" to allow it to fit onto the drivetrain. Our belt-specific dropout design is an integral part of the frame and very discrete. The connection is made of stainless steel and will provide a lifetime of reliability.
