The Routier Tour is one of our newer models.

The Tour is built with the serious tourist in mind, using the same top quality frame as the Sport. It is finished with the most serviceable hubs on the market, really puncture resistant Schwalbe Tandem tyres, Brooks leather touring saddles designed for distance riding and Tubus pannier racks front & rear.

Built in North Yorkshire, and finished with top quality components the Tour makes a super expedition tandem, whether riding in the UK or further afield.

48-spoke wheels are fitted as standard, and registering the Tubus racks extends their guarantee to 30 years.
