The City eXpress

The City family of bikes are designed to propel the rider and a light load through the urban landscape with speed and efficiency. We built these bikes to be quick, agile and ergonomic with the ability to bring your essentials across town with minimal resistance and maximum reliability. The sporty riding position emphasizes speed and control -  the lightweight, semi-integrated Curana fenders and Tubus Fly rack give you the ability to mount panniers and carry up to 18 kg of cargo. Drop-bar and light kit options allow you to build a bike that suits your riding style, schedule, and budget. Mid-profile tires keep acceleration quick while providing enough comfort and damping to take sting out of rough city streets. A variety of drivetrain options let you choose between traditional chain and derailleur shifting, or Gates Carbon belt drive systems with gear hub and gearbox options from Shimano, Rohloff, and Pinion. The City can also be configured as a Silent E-Drive e-bike to make your commute even easier. At the start or end of your day, The City is the kind of bike makes you proud to be a commuter.

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

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.

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.

E-Bike

E-Bike

Silent eDrive E-Bike

Our Silent eDrive models are equipped with a Pinion gearbox, a gearless hub motor and the Gates Carbon Drive belt drive. This combination ensures a whisper-quiet and reliable drivetrain. The maintenance requirements for the complete system are minimal and are generally limited to an annual oil change for the gearbox and regular cleaning of the belt. Various gearbox types, with 6 to 18 gears, allow the bike to be tailored to your specific needs.

Rack Style

Rack Style

Semi-integrated Tubus Fly Rack

With the Tubus Fly, the name says it all. We use it on our sporty models, as it is very light yet still robust. Stability is achieved through the very narrow construction which allows sufficient carrying capacity for a variety of uses, all while maintaining a visual simplicity. The mounting point at the fender give the appearance that the Fly is floating, but it is deceptively rigid and exceptionally functional. The Fly is a visual delight and blends in perfectly with the silhouette of the bicycle. If configure your bike with lighting, we route wiring within the rack to prevent it from getting in your way. Manufactured from CrMo 4130, the maximum load capacity of the rack is 18 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

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.

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.
