Silkroad / Silkroad GT

The Silkroad has been our DNA since 2005. It is the touring bike of choice for cycling globetrotters for expeditions. The latest generation has been completely redesigned in order to handle the greatest challenges.

Almost all components have been modified as part of the redesign. But don't be surprised if you don't see the changes at first glance - we still believe that less is more.

The drive unit has been completely redesigned. The frame is now separable and compatible with the Gates® Carbon Drive™ frame. It goes without saying that proven technology is used, such as the VBA System and our universal 3-in-1 dropout. In addition to the design for internal gear hubs, there is also a version for purists that has been rigorously optimized for derailleur shifting.

New cable routing for brakes and shifters with uninterrupted cable housings reduce maintenance intervals and nestle against the frame more elegantly. The central stand and the optional bipod kickstand make the Silkroad safe even when it is fully loaded.

The Silkroad is also available in the Gran Turismo (GT) version with racing handlebars and Shift:R thumb shifter, thus making it well suited for long journeys while retaining the convenience of a Rohloff hub.

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