The Routier Sport is one of our best selling tandems.

The Sport is built using the lightweight Kinesis frame. Available in either black or blue the fully-butted frame gives a really smooth ride helping to iron out the UK's rough roads.

Built in North Yorkshire, and finished with top quality components from Shimano, Schwalbe, Truvativ and Velo, the Routier is designed for couples wanting to get the most out of their tandem riding.

We only fit puncture resistant tyres and Schwalbe are a great example of this, available in a range of different sizes and thicknesses.
