What do you need in an adventure touring bike?
We made our own list and built the Kathmandu SL around it: light, stiff, strong, versatile, reliable and, above all, comfortable. With the peerless performance of Shimano XT 3x10 gears and a RockShox Paragon Gold air suspension fork, it's quite possibly the ultimate grand tourer. The IC 2.0 luggage rack combines with our aluminium Superlite frame to make a formidable load-carrying companion for any adventure, big or small.
Double-butted tubing removes weight from areas where it's safe to do so, and adds material where it's needed for strength. Combined with our Efficient Comfort Geometry, the result is a sublimely smooth ride that'll have you eating up the miles and coming back for more. And the integrated design of our carrier isn't just elegant - it's also exceptionally strong, stiff and stable. Wear components can be easily replaced and it even features a built-in rear light. Full-length mudguards, a kickstand and powerful all-weather hydraulic disc brakes round out the Kathmandu SL. If there's a better way of seeing the world from a saddle, we've yet to find it..
