High-quality materials. Innovative design. Passionate craftsmanship. Through carefully selected components we create a bicycle like no other.
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.
28" (700C) Wheels
The 28" (700c) wheel is the classic wheel size, from its origins in bicycle racing. While the 700c designator is common in North America and the UK, in Europe and other parts of the world the term 28" is used interchangeably. While 28" refers to the rim diameter, 700c references the wheel diameter, including tire. Today, 28" (700c) is a popular tire format for trekking (hybrid) bikes, as they are very suitable for daily use and perform well at higher speeds. They roll well, offer good comfort, and have a sporty look. Lightweight wheels can be built for 28" (700c) tires, reducing the rotating mass providing a quick and agile ride.
Ergo-Stop Steerer 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.
Belt/Chain Tensioning System
VBA (Eccentric Bottom Bracket)
Our unique VBA system has been registered for patent and simplifies both the adjustment of the tension of a chain or belt as well as its beltline. The eccentric bottom bracket allows the chain or belt tension to be easily adjusted by turning with a common 5 mm Allen key. The belt line is adjusted by axially shifting the eccentric bottom bracket; the markings on the exterior serve to aid in determining the position. The weight of the VBA eccentric bottom bracket is minimized through a machined bottom bracket insert.
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.
Shimano Internal Geared Hub
The Shimano Alfine hub family is built for reliability and year-round usability. These advantages become apparent with urban and trekking bikes. Depending on the area of use and the nature of the terrain, we recommend the 8-speed version for urban riding and the 11-speed for short tours. With gear ratio range of 307% and 409% respectively, they are extremely well suited to their application. Of course, we combine the Alfine hubs with the clean and reliable Gates Carbon Drive belt to keep bike maintenance as low as possible.
The innovative 3-in-1 dropout allows you to use a number of drive systems. With the "sandwich" design, you can convert from a derailleur system to hub shifting – and vice versa. The modular dropout is simply inserted into the frame. You can also convert an existing bicycle from chain drive to belt drive. The 3-in-1 dropout offers you maximum flexibility with regard to the drivetrain while maintaining a clean look and clever integration into in the frame.
Tout Terrain Classic Tubeset
We have carefully designed our classic tube sets together with our production factories. We use strictly high-quality CrMo 4130 (chrome molybdenum) steel which is single- or double-butted, depending its place in the frame. Load-optimized tubes which are individually selected for each model so we can achieve a balance between weight and durability. These tube sets are combined with stainless steel components (e.g., at the dropouts) to achieve a durable, comfortable and long-lasting frameset.

Aside from the right set of components, the correct frame size is crucial in order to feel comfortable on your Tout Terrain bike. The best way to be sure is to go on an extented test ride at one of our dealers. Let your dealer help you to adjust your bike to fit your needs.
