Cycle to Work

Product Description

Cycling is a great way to optimize your own personal carbon footprint - we even go one step further with the Kathmandu SL. How? Well, we built a compostable housing for the front light, for example. That may not sound like much, but we do what we can and how we can. Shimano XT components are the measure of all things in terms of ease of use and reliable performance. With the Kathmandu SL, you will encounter features such as our stable, integrated luggage rack and the light, supple RockShox suspension fork. This makes the Kathmandu SL the new gold standard for environmentally conscious mobility without CO2.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Touring Bike Guide

 

Touring Bike Guide

The call of the open road

Touring bikes look similar to standard road bikes, but they are specifically built for the demands of long journeys carrying lots of luggage. Touring bikes have drop handlebars and 700c wheels, but they usually have slightly wider tyres than road bikes. They can be built from any kind of material, but steel is the most popular choice for touring bike frames. High end touring bikes are sometimes built from titanium.


Touring bikes

Built for distance

Touring bikes are built to be very strong and durable.

They have eyelets in the frames to attach front and rear racks and mudguards. Many will come with these accessories included. Their frame geometry is very comfortable and they have wide ranges of gears to make mountainous terrain easier. Some even have mountain bike gearing with triple chainsets.

Genesis Croix de Fer Touring bike

Audax bikes are lighter and a bit nippier than standard touring bikes. They can still carry a bit of luggage, but are designed for long distance single or multi-day rides where you don't need four stuffed panniers and a rack pack for your gear. Their comfort and lighter weight makes them a great alternative to a road bike for commuting or training as well.


Do I need a tourer?

Alternative options

Touring bikes are real workhorses and are comfortable and well-equipped.

However, if you don't plan to cycle round the world, you might want to choose a more versatile bike. If you fit them with pannier racks, cyclocross bikes, hybrid bikes and even some road bikes can handle a bit of touring.

Touring equipment

Big trip kit

If you've got your heart set on a massive bike adventure, you need to be able to carry a lot of kit on your bike. Go for front and rear racks, capacious panniers, a handlebar bag and a rack pack to fully kit out your bike.
