    Light and strong

    If you’re looking for a lightweight bike, the SILKCARBON won’t disappoint: Its 27.2 mm carbon seatpost only weighs 200 grams while still being extremely sturdy.

    Well-conceived components

    Only about 500 grams: That’s how much the full-carbon fork weighs. The specially developed and intelligent comfort layup of the carbon fibres smooths out any kind of uneven terrain and gives the bike added comfort. 

    A real jawdropper

    All cables are internally routed through the main frame and the chainstays. This not only looks sleek, but also protects the inner and outer cables and reduces the necessary operating forces.

    Everything ready

    On board as well: integrated 7’’ postmounts for the disc brakes, laminated eyelets for mudguards and a light system, and an internally routed electric cable for the hub dynamo. 

    our multi-talent

    Versatility? That’s par for the course when it comes to the SILKCARBON. As an ultra-lightweight sports bike, as a standard trekking bike or as a cross bike: This two-wheeler is suitable for any kind of use. Another advantage: It comes in two versions – a low-entry version for women and a standard-top-tube version for men. 

    Thanks to the bike configurator, you can create your bike entirely according to your wishes and needs!

    Technical Details

    technologies

    The SILKCARBON in its Sport/Cross version is equipped with well-conceived and high-quality technology features – as should be the case for a high-end bike like this one. 

    The beating heart of the Comfort Concept are the ultra-thin curved VIBREX® seatstays attached to the VIBREX® monostay. Special carbon fibres and their layup make the frame extremely flexible. Why’s that good? It ensures smooth riding on rough terrain – and that makes all the difference in terms of riding fun!
