The Blacktop Family

One bike can't do it all, but the Blacktop can sure handle a lot. We see this bike as one that starts the day on the road, but doesn't hesitate when it is time to turn onto the road less travelled. These bikes strike a balance between the stability required to carry cargo, and the agility which makes the bike lively and fun. The sporty riding position emphasizes speed and control, keeping you and aero enough to stay efficient and comfortable enough for a long day in the saddle. Flat-bar and drop-bar options allow for varied riding positions, while the frame and fork are rated to carry a combined load up to 60 kg of cargo via front and rear racks or bikepacking bags. There are also frame and fork mounts aplenty. The bike can be configured with a variety of components, lighting, and rack options to suit your riding style and terrain.  Drivetrain configurations consist of traditional chain and derraileur, or the Rohloff Speedhub driven by a Gates Carbon Belt Drive system. The Blacktop is designed around 35-40c tires ranging from the lighter more pavement friendly rubber to more gravel road oriented tread profiles. It may be called the Blacktop, but this bike will take you far off the asphalt.

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

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

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

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.

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

Cinq Shift:R Tour

The Shift:R Tour is perfectly suited for riding on tour, your daily commute, or on the trails as shifting is consistent and reliable in all conditions. Advantages over the the twist shifter include the ability to customize the shift lever configuration to your personal preference, and the ability to shift and brake at the same time. The Shift:R Box uses only the highest quality materials such as impact-resistant 6061 aluminium for the housing, and special stainless steel for the shift mechanism, delivering optimum performance and a very long service life. The Shift:R spring assembly is equipped with overload protection.

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.

Derailleur

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.

Dropout

Dropout

3in1 Dropout

The innovative 3-in-1 dropout allows you to use a number of drive systems. With the "sandwich" design, you can convert from a derailleur system to hub shifting – and vice versa. The modular dropout is simply inserted into the frame. You can also convert an existing bicycle from chain drive to belt drive. The 3-in-1 dropout offers you maximum flexibility with regard to the drivetrain while maintaining a clean look and clever integration into in the frame.

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.
