High-quality materials. Innovative design. Passionate craftsmanship. Through carefully selected components we create a bicycle like no other.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Thermocrom tubeset brings our frame construction to the next level. Heat treating the steel allows us to strategically use thinner wall tubing in certain, areas reducing weight without sacrificing durability. We can fine-tune the classic steel ride of each frame to its specific application, balancing weight, stiffness, and compliance. Thermocrom shares virtually all of the characteristics of our Dedacciai tubing, but represents a massive reduction in your bike's overall carbon footprint due to a reduction in the shipment of the raw materials and tubing between countries.
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.
Scotchguard Paint Protection Film by 3M
Our Scotchguard paint protection film protects the powder coating of your rack from scratches and wear due to the use of panniers.
Tout Terrain 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
