High-quality materials. Innovative design. Passionate craftsmanship. Through carefully selected components we create a bicycle like no other.
Performance Gravel Geometry
Our Performance Gravel geometry keeps things sporty, with the spirited ride that only a steel gravel bike can provide. The frame is lively on asphalt surfaces while letting you get a little bit rowdy when the pavement ends. Shorter chainstays offer snappy acceleration, but still plenty of tire clearance while the generous bottom bracket drop keeps the center of mass low and stable. A moderate reach provides a comfortable rider position for long days in the saddle without compromising toe-overlap and low-speed handling. The open front triangle lets you mount your favourite bikepacking bags with enough space for a few bottles.
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.
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.
Ergo-Stop II Plus
Incorporating all of the features of the Ergo-Stop II, the Ergo-Stop II Plus, adds a newly designed parking lock to hold the handlebar in position even if the bike is loaded. It prevents the bike from tipping over, which is especially helpful for bikes carrying front-mounted low-riders, a front rack, or a handlebar bag. The latest iteration adds a stronger, bolt-on interface and CNC machined alloy lock mechanism for increased durability.
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.
Specially-designed frames for derailleur systems reduce weight and offer uncompromised performance. This means that frame butting (internal tube reinforcement), cable routing and bosses are designed solely for the use of derailleur systems. If the derailleur system is your drivetrain of choice and you don't need the flexibility to change to a different drivetrain in future, there is nothing better.
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.
We have carefully designed our Stratocrom tube sets together with our production partners. We use high-quality CrMo 4130 (chrome molybdenum) steel with specific wall thickness and butting depending its placement in the frame. Load-optimized tubes are individually selected for each model so we can achieve a balance between weight and durability.
Allroad Fork Option
The Allroad Fork is our standard chromoly steel fork. The design balances comfort and stiffness, providing excellent steering precision while taking the edge off of rough roads and trails. It features fender and lighting mounts, drilling for internal dynamo wiring, and is on a par with current axle- and brake-technology (12 mm thru-axle and flat-mount disc brakes).
Cinq Touring Fork Option
The carbon fiber Cinq touring fork is designed to bring cargo mounting reliability and weight savings to traditional touring bikes. The fork has an axle-to-crown lenth of 395 mm and clearance for 50 mm (700c) or 54 mm (650B) wide tires which makes it suitable for a wide variety of wheel, tire and frame combinations. Beyond the basics, the fork has a host of features that really set it apart from other products in the segment: It is compatible with dynamo hubs with the ability to route wiring internally, giving you an elegant and robust connection to your power supply. The fork also uses a unique "no-thread" thru-bolt eyelet system which greatly reduces the stress on the carbon sidewalls, resulting in cargo carrying capacity and reliability that are second-to-none. Thanks to a modular design, the included stainless steel hardware is completely replacable - damaging or cross-threading a bolt no longer means your fork ends up going in for expensive repairs. Lighting and fender mounts give you the flexibility to configure the fork to suit your adventure.
Expedition Fork Option
The Expedition Fork is our premium, feature-rich chromoly steel fork. With the same precise-yet-comfortable ride as our Allroad Fork, the Expedition Fork adds tire clearance and a bunch of cargo and electrical features. In addition to standard lighting and fender mounts, 3-point eyelets on the fork legs let you attach two-bolt bottle cages, three-bolt cargo-style cages or lowrider racks for maximum flexibility. Electrically, the Expedition Fork is drilled for internal dynamo hub wiring and is compatible with the SON SL (Self-Connecting) dynamo system. It allows the front wheel to be removed from the fork without the need to manually unplug the dynamo and is wired internally from dropout to light. The lack of exposed connectors or wires prevents damage to the system, making it a more reliable and robust lighting and (in combination with the Cinq Plug5) charging solution. These features that make the Expedition fork ideal for touring, bikepacking, and everyday use.
