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.

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.

Steerer-Stop

Steerer-Stop

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.

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

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.

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.

Rack Style

Rack Style

Integrated Trekking Rack

Our integrated Trekking-Rack offers superb 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 Racktime® mounts enable the universal use of rack accessories such as baskets. The Trekking-Racks are well suited for both daily use and weekend trips with panniers. With respect to the choice of material, we use CrMo 4130 just as with our frames. The material properties of steel make it is much more durable than aluminum racks – regardless of whether they are integrated or bolt-on. The maximum load capacity of our Trekking-Rack is 40 kg.

Frame Tubeset

Frame Tubeset

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.

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."
