The Silkroad Family

The Silkroad family of bikes are often the expedition models of choice for the descerning globetrotter. 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 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.

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

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.

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

Cinq Shift:R Tour

The Shift:R Tour is perfectly suited for riding on tour, your daily commute, or on the trails as shifting is consistent and reliable in all conditions. Advantages over the the twist shifter include the ability to customize the shift lever configuration to your personal preference, and the ability to shift and brake at the same time. The Shift:R Box uses only the highest quality materials such as impact-resistant 6061 aluminium for the housing, and special stainless steel for the shift mechanism, delivering optimum performance and a very long service life. The Shift:R spring assembly is equipped with overload protection.

Shimano Internal Geared Hub

The Rohloff Speedhub is the leader in ultra-rugged gearhub technology. With a history that goes back to the 1990s, the hub has an unmatched track record of reliability. Particularly popular among high-mileage riders such as long-distance commuters and touring cyclists, the Speedhub has made a name for itself and is known for its dependability and low maintenance. The gear range of 526% is suitable for bicycle tours and daily riding alike. Maintenance is minimal, limited to an annual oil change.

Derailleur

The classic derailleur system provides fast, precise shifting and is the lightest of all our shifting options. Modern derailleur systems offer virtually perfect shifting and sufficient gear range for a variety cycling disciplines, from the minimalistic urban bike with 1x11 gearing to the expedition touring bicycle with a 3x10 gear setup. With our GT models, we use Shimano 2x11 shifters and derailleurs with an ultra-compact crankset gear ratio to ensure you don't run out of breath in the mountains. The derailleur system remains the system of choice for lightweight and sporty riding.

Dropout

Dropout

3in1 Dropout

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.

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.
