Possibly the ultimate adventure bike. Very few bicycles combine comfort and technology like the Panamericana Xplore does. The advantages of a steel frame, the full-suspension and the Pinion Gearbox make this a bike for the worst conditions on the planet.
Using the Pinion Gearbox has turned the full-suspension Panamericana into an even better bike.
In addition to all great features of the classic Panamericana, mounting the gearbox in the centre of the frame and using a conventional single speed rear wheel reduces the unsprung mass and makes the suspension of the Panamericana Xplore even more reactive. Also the greatly reduced mass of the rear wheel increases the sensitivity of the rear suspension. Because the luggage is carried on the rack fixed to the frame it also does not dampen the movement of the suspension. The centre of gravity is low and centrally located, and with the lighter rear wheel handling, suspension and ride dynamics are improved.
The frame is powder coated in Tout Terrain's own facility to maximise corrosion resistance. The frame is then clear coated to protect the finish and seal in the decals. Finally the inside of the tubes receive a preservation treatment to provide maximum protection against corrosion. Available in four very civilised colours or you can choose from any of Tout Terrains stock colours for extra charge. You can also specify an RAL colour of your choice. More on the Pinion Drive
All Tout Terrain frames are designed for disc brakes only. Disc brakes keep working even if your rims are damaged in a crash. There's plenty of clearance for big tyres and mudguards. Two different pannier height positions are available, a standard one and extra-low position. Using the lower position results in a lower centre of gravity, as well as in a more favourable load distribution over the rear wheel. All Tout Terrain bikes are fitted as standard with a handlebar stop which prevents the handlebars from turning more than 90°, for example in the event of a fall or if the bicycle falls over, this avoids dents and scratches in the top tube. A simple and effective idea which is typical of the attention to detail on these bikes.
