    Travel Lite+

    Sporty allrounder

 

 

The Travel Lite+ is a sporty allrounder. An extremely powerful bike luggage wise, a revelation when it comes to smoothness and sportivity. It is your favourite holiday partner and a loyal companion on your way to work or for a daily ride to the supermarket.

The Travel Lite+ frame is clean and dedicated. That means nicely finished welds, a clean internal head set and an elegant wishbone rear fork.

The PLUS concept gives the Travel Lite+ a unique feature. The frame is compatible with two wheel sizes, that you can change easily. Our starting configuration is with wide 28 inch rims and 50 mm tires, which could be changed to 42 - 55 mm ones. Or opt for the 27.5 inch rims with 62 mm tires. These wheels will give you a surplus of comfort on bumpy roads and unpaved tracks. Ideal for touring.
Wherever you go, the Travel Lite+ gives you the ability to choose the optimal riding characteristics. It is a bike to use often, with a lot of luggage, even more than 40 kg*. Its strong frame and wheels make the bike ride stable under any circumstances.

Equipped with a low maintenance Pinion gear box and Gates belt drive, you are unstoppable. Its strong disc brakes give you perfect control and contribute to its sporty looks.

That's what makes the Travel Lite+ a rich addition to our Lite Series. Customize this versatile bike the way you desire, suiting your demands.

*In case you use the carrier for panniers only on the side and on top of the bike, it's suitable for at least 40kg. The carrier is not suitable for child's seats.

Fast and easy

28 inch, 42 - 55 mm tires

The Travel Lite+ comes with 28 inch wheels and 50 mm tires. With this combination you have an easy ride to work or riding the paved roads on your holiday. Do you have any specific requests? Then you might be better off with a different tire size.

The Travel Lite+ is suitable for 28 inch wheels with tires from 42 to 55 mm. There's something for everyone.


Extra strong and comfortable

27.5 inch, 62 mm tires

The Travel Lite+ supports two wheel sizes. Apart from the 28 inch wheels you can opt for the 27.5 inch wheels with 62 mm tires. The extra fat tires make your ride super comfortable and the shorter spokes make the wheels extra strong.
Above all, a fat tire handles obstacles more easily on your offroad ride. So relax, enjoy the views, your tires will do the rest!

 

 

Tip luchtdruk

Tip

Air pressure makes a huge difference while using the 27.5 inch wheels with 62 mm tires. If speed is your main goal, you are better off with more pressure. During slower travels with luggage comfort has more priority.
In general we recommend a tire pressure between 1.7 and 2.7 bar, depending on your weight, your luggage and your goal.

  • Sterk frame
  • Safely downhill, full of confidence

    Strong and stable frame

    The Travel Lite+ follows without hesitation. Even during super fast downhills on paved roads or unpaved mountain tracks it feels very reliable. It has a super strong frame, a steel front fork and exceedingly strong wheels, which make swaying impossible.

  • Travelwaardig
  • A crazy amount of luggage

    Stable riding behaviour, even with a lot of luggage

    You can fit the Travel Lite+ with more than 40 kg of luggage, divided over 5 bags. For example, choose a Santos TravelRack XL rear rack (26 kg*) and a Tubus lowrider (15kg). The strong, stiff frame and the steel front fork ride effortless over cobblestones and tree-roots. The fat tires give you lots of comfort.

    *In case you use the carrier for panniers only on the side and on top of the bike, it's suitable for at least 40kg. The carrier is not suitable for child's seats.

Pinion gear box

Cycling the world, barely any maintenance

 

 

 

 

  • Pinion
  • 12 or 18 gears

    Low maintenance Pinion gear box

    The Travel Lite+ has a reliable Pinion gear box. This type of transmission will be supplied with belt drive, which makes it a super durable and low maintenance combination. By default we mount the Pinion gear box with 12 gears and for hilly terrain we also offer 18 speed.

    The Pinion box with 18 gears is available in 6 colors, choose the one that matches your bike.

  • Pinion brug
  • Super stiff and more precise

    Strenghtened Pinion bridge

    For a durable transmission system a more precise Pinion fitting is of great importance. Therefore the Pinion frame of the Travel Lite+ has a strenghtened Pinion bridge, which ensures the (belt) drive to be silent and durable. You will also notice this when riding the bike; efficiency with every pedal stroke.

  • Riemspanner
  • Gates belt drive and Santos belt tensioner

    Durable Santos belt drive

    With the right belt and sprockets the bike's drive system is super durable. For all its models Santos chooses the best parts and has developed its own belt tensioner. This tiny wheel for the Pinion box keeps the belt tensioned and is located near the bracket. This makes the system super user friendly; removing the rear wheel can be done in an instant.

    The Travel Lite+ has this durable Santos belt drive. This means fixed dropouts (thus the certainty of a straight rear wheel), Gates belt drive and the Santos belt tensioner. It's the ultimate system for a lót of silent kilometers.
