The Travel SL is a very special sports tourer. This lighweight machine is ideal for both touring and everyday urban use and has a drive belt instead of a chain - so rattling gears, oily trousers and regular maintenance are all eliminated. The belt is practically indestructible. We've also fitted a low-maintenance Alfine 8 speed hub and hydraulic disc brakes, making the Travel SL safe and comfortable to ride all year round, wherever your travels take you. What better way to have fun?
Frame: The Gate CDN drive belt can be fitted by opening the aluminium frame's Split & Slide dropout. This precision-welded device can also be adjusted horizontally (for belt tension), easily and accurately, with the help of two screws. The classically elegant frame design features double butted aluminium tubes, which means it's both extremely stiff and impressively light - but we've still allowed room for tyres up to 47x622. Cables are routed inside the down tube, reducing wear and tear.
Features: We wanted perfect gear shifting performance regardless of weather conditions, so the reliable and low maintenance Alfine 8 speed hub was the obvious choice. We didn't compromise on the brakes, either. Shimano's BR-M315 hydraulic discs deliver safe stopping power even when fully laden, or in dangerous situations. The sensor control built into the AXA Blueline50-T Steady Auto LED lighting system - with up to 50 lux output - alternates automatically between daylight riding and night-time lighting, and stays lit even when you're stationary - such as standing at traffic lights, or waiting at a junction. Schwalbe's Marathon Supreme tyres keep the Travel SL firmly planted on the road, reducing rolling resistance and increasing rider comfort.
