Amber Road

The Amber Road is a trekking bike with the typical tout terrain features plus additional technical touches. It's the perfect all-around bike for those who prefer large-volume 28-inch tires for everyday cycling or weekend tours. Field and gravel roads along the way become much more fun to ride.

Besides the steering stop, chromoly fork for disc brakes, and the eccentric bottom bracket with "VBA" for adjusting the belt line precisely, the Amber Road uses the 3-in-1 dropout design. This innovative dropout has a sandwich design that allows the conversion from derailleur shifting to belt drive for the first time, providing maximum drive flexibility.

The geometry of the Amber Road was specially matched to the large-volume 28-inch tires, thereby retaining a sporty look while offering the comfort and rolling characteristics of a 28-inch wheel.

Amber Road XXL
Starting in 2015, an XXL Version of the Amber Road will be available for people between 195 cm (6‘ 5“) and 205 cm (6‘ 9“) tall. Both the tubing dimensions and the components have been matched to meet these special requirements. We use the new SuperC for all XXL sizes, which is stronger and more rugged and has disk brakes up to 203 mm.

Conclusion: "In short, tout terrain are a make that deserve to be better known in the UK, where potholed roads and badly surfaced off-road cycle paths seem their natural territory."
