Amber Road

The Amber Road is a trekking bike that offers besides the typical tout terrain features a wealth of technical details. It is the perfect all-round bike for those who prefer large volume 28 inch wheels for everyday cycling or weekend tours. Field and gravel roads become much more fun to ride.

Besides the tout terrain Ergo-stop steering stop, CroMo fork for disc brakes and the eccentric bottom bracket with VBA - variable belt adjustment system facilitates a simple, simultaneous adjustment of the belt tension and belt line for the first time - we are using the 3in1 dropout design: the innovative dropout allows the conversion from belt to chain drive, providing maximum freedom in terms of the drive.

The geometry of the Amber Road was especially adapted to the voluminous 28 inch wheels between 42 and 50mm. This way the sportiness could be maintained and on the other hand, aspects of comfort and rolling characteristics are accentuated.

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."
