High-quality materials. Innovative design. Passionate craftsmanship. Through carefully selected components we create a bicycle like no other.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Ergo-Stop Steerer Lock
The Ergo-Stop is a small detail that makes a big difference.

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.
