The Silkroad has been part of the Tout Terrain 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. Tout Terrain 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 the universal 3-in-1 dropout. 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.
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. The derailleur version of the GT model will be shipped with the touring specific crankset.
