The Via Veneto Family

The Via Veneto family are the most agile bikes in our trekking series. The bike is most at home on city streets and paved pathways where the efficiency, reliability, and handling are a priority - it is ideal for urban adventures, coffee shop excursions, and makes a great companion on multi-day tours. The neutral and balanced rider position and your choice of saddles, handlebars, and grips mean you won't be hurting at the end of a long day in the saddle. The Via Veneto features a variety of cargo configuration options, and let you confidently carry up to 40 kg on the integrated, Racktime compatible, rear Trekking Rack. The 28" wheels and mid-profile tires balance speed and comfort, while the Gates Carbon belt drive system is clean and ultra-reliable when paired with either a Shimano or Rohloff gear hub, or Pinion gearbox drivetrains. The wide variety of lighting, component, and accessory options allow you to build a bike that suits your riding style and budget. The Via Veneto is the perfect blend of comfort, style and efficienty for short trips and for the long haul.

Features

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

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.

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

28" (700C) Wheels

The 28" (700c) wheel is the classic wheel size, from its origins in bicycle racing. While the 700c designator is common in North America and the UK, in Europe and other parts of the world the term 28" is used interchangeably. While 28" refers to the rim diameter, 700c references the wheel diameter, including tire. Today, 28" (700c) is a popular tire format for trekking (hybrid) bikes, as they are very suitable for daily use and perform well at higher speeds. They roll well, offer good comfort, and have a sporty look. Lightweight wheels can be built for 28" (700c) tires, reducing the rotating mass providing a quick and agile ride.

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

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.

E-Bike

E-Bike

Silent eDrive E-Bike Option

The e-bike option gives you the possibility to electrify your Xpress model later on. All necessary preparations have been made to the frame if you decide to upgrade in the future. In combination with your Pinion gearbox and Gates Carbon Drive belt, the result is a whisper-quiet and reliable drivetrain. The maintenance requirements for the complete system are minimal and are generally limited to an annual gearbox oil change and regular belt cleaning. The 250W stepless motor delivers great power in most every situation.
