The Outback Family

The Outback excels at multi-day self-sufficient adventures on the trail, carrying only the gear that matters most. It is light and maneuverable enough to explore uncharted terrain, while being comfortable enough to endure big distances and long days in the saddle. With a neutral and balanced riding position, the mix of modern trail and pack-friendly geometry make it an agile climber and formidable descender, whether you are riding with gear or unencumbered. The multi-butted 4130 CrMo steel frame can be equipped with 27.5+ or 29" wheels, making it a great bike both in technical singletrack and along rough gravel roads. Configure your bike with robust components and suspension for trail riding and bikepacking, or configure it for an all-out off-road expedition with front and rear racks and the rigid carbon Cinq Adventure fork. The Pinion gearbox provides a low, balanced center of gravity and offers a wide 600% gear range - Even bikerafters have taken to the Outback for its sealed gearbox and all-conditions Gates Carbon Belt Drive. Let the Outback be your ride, and your imagination be your guide

Rack Style

Rack Style

Optional Tubus Logo Touring Rack

The optional Tubus Logo rack is a classic among touring cyclists who appreciate the flexibility of a removable rack. It is manufactured from rugged CrMo 4130 and offers numerous possibilities for fastening bags. It is wide enough to transport a cargo bag, and has a second bag level to lower the center of gravity or mount taller panniers. If you'd like a bike with lighting, we route wiring within the rack to prevent it from getting in your way. The maximum load capacity is 40 kg.

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

29" Wheels

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.

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.
