Silkroad

The Silkroad is the ultra-robust bike for cyclists. When it was designed the focus was on the principle "less is more". By integrating the rack into the mainframe weak points you typically find on most bikes (like braze-ons and screws) are eliminated offering greater strength at the same time. The geometry of the rack is a stress optimized design. By the integration of the rack into the main frame the weight could be reduced and the resistance increased at the same time.

It has been possible to further optimise the luggage rack through the use of new tube materials. The chain adjustment is enhanced by a new, weightoptimised
eccentric mechanism.

The Silkroad is also available in the GT (Gran Turismo or “grand tourer“) version with dropped handlebars and is therefore perfectly suited for long distances without missing the comfort of a Rohloff hub.

Conclusion: "The Silkroad’s handling is impeccable, the riding position high and upright – the word ‘imperious’ springs to mind."
