With a Rohloff-Speedhub and a new Rohloff-Gates compatible frame, Ludwig XIV lives up to his name. The tourer incorporates both the maintenance-free reliability of the Gates Carbon Drive, and the efficiency of the Rohloff shifting in a superb and cunning design. The patented SBP II technology along with the Slider clamping system attached to the dropout optimise the interplay with the belt. While being fully equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, Ludwig XIV still is a lightweight, weighing only 11,9kg thanks to a tripple-butted aluminium frame and aero-shaped tubes. Polished welds and an integrated seatpost clamp top off the visual appearance.
