The Silkroad Family

The Silkroad family of bikes are often the expedition models of choice for the descerning globetrotter around th e world. These models are ready to take you far away from civilization, or just as easily serve you faithfully as an ultra-reliable everyday bike for city and country riding. Ready to rack up the miles, the premium steel frame with our integrated stainless steel Expedition-Rack remains comfortable and composed riding whether unladen or fully loaded up to 160 kg with rider and gear. The neutral and balanced rider position and your choice of cockpit components mean you won't be hurting at the end of a long day in the saddle. The internationally prevalent 26" wheelset is extraordinarily strong, and you have your choice of bombproof tires, front racks, components, light, and power kits. Drivetrain options consist of reliable chain and derailleur setups, or a Gates Carbon Drive belt drive system with either a Rohloff Speedhub or Pinion gearbox. The Silkroad has been described by many as their "best friend" and a "trusty steed" on their journeys big and small, and we are proud to be a small part in your big adventures.

Features

High-quality materials. Innovative design. Passionate craftsmanship. Through carefully selected components we create a bicycle like no other.

Rack Style

Rack Style

Integrated Expedition Rack

"Our integrated Expedition-Rack offers maximum ride safety and reliability thanks to the welded (bolt-free) attachment. The advantages of this welded and integrated approach become most apparent when riding with a heavy load. The narrow design is perfectly sized for transporting panniers, keeping the center of gravity as close as possible to the center-line of the bike. The second, lower pack level is ideal to lower the center of gravity, or if you travel with taller panniers. Stainless steel is the material of choice and perfect for the application as it prevents corrosion on the rack and, due to the material properties of steel, is much more durable than aluminum racks (whether integrated or bolt-on). The maximum load capacity of our Expedition-Rack is 40 kg."

3M Scotchguard Paint Protection Film

Our Scotchguard paint protection film protects the powder coating of your rack from scratches and wear due to the use of panniers.

Finish

Finish

T-Coat

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.

Wheel Size

Wheel Size

26" Wheels

The classic wheel size is characterized by a number of advantages: ruggedness, international availability, superb maneuverability and maximum comfort. The 26" wheels are especially versatile, as the large selection of tire types allows your bicycle to be tailored precisely to your riding preferences. Even if your type of riding and preferences change over time, your bike remains flexible. The universal availability of spare parts is advantageous both for round-the-world trips and for urban riding, as you can find a 26" tire in just about any bicycle shop in the world. As magazine "Mybike" stated: "We believe the 26" is a wheel size that will survive all fashion trends, as the advantages speak for themselves."

Steerer-Stop

Steerer-Stop

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.

Ergo-Stop Steerer Lock

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. With the Ergo-Stop-Plus, we have also included a parking lock to hold the handlebar in position even if the bike is loaded, preventing it from tipping. Especially for bicycles with low riders, front rack or handlebar bag, this is very practical.

Belt/Chain Tensioning System

Belt/Chain Tensioning System

TBA (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.

Drivetrain Type

Drivetrain Type

Belt Compatible

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.

Shifting System

Shifting System

Pinion Gearbox

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.

Frame Tubeset

Frame Tubeset

Premium Dedacciai Tubeset

For bicycles that use the Dedacciai tube set, we have spared no effort in the frame design. Each tube is selected for its respective application or, if necessary, specially developed with Dedacciai. Seamless tubes are then created on-site in Italy, manufactured using steel from Germany. This ensures the best, consistent material properties and optimized weight. With these tube sets, we are able to achieve superb strength, stiffness and weight - even compared to touring bikes made of aluminum. We accomplish this while maintaining better durability, comfort, repairability, and lower energy expenditure for the production of the tubsets.
