The Travel Pro proves that a bike can be both robust and fun to ride. It's a bike that combines functionality, comfort and technology into a well-rounded, versatile package. We've combined an 8 speed hub gear with hydraulic disc brakes for the ultimate in worry-free riding, while the new frame has plenty of room for extra wide tyres - great for comfort! It all means the Travel Pro is your perfect partner, wherever in the world you end up.
We built the Travel Pro's brand new chassis from double butted tubes, using our Smooth Welding technology at the seat and head tube junctions. It's the perfect blend of light and stiff - the handling is superb even when the bike is fully laden, thanks to a tapered head tube and rigid, 29er-compatible aluminium fork. We even ensured that there's clearance for tyres up to 2.25in in both frame and fork, significantly improving both comfort and puncture resistance. Internal cable routing reduces the need for maintenance, and there are bottle cage bosses on the seat tube and down tube - perfect for long rides.
Shimano's brand new Nexus Disc hub gear features 8 speeds driven by a Truvativ E400 chainseet, covering ratios suitable for everything from the steepest climb to riding fast on the flat. The Busch & Müller lighting system includes a 20 lux Lyt to illuminate the way ahead, while at the rear there's a Toplight Flat+. Shimano's BR-M355 hydraulic disc brakes ensure safe braking even when fully laden and branded mudguards keep dust, dirt and water away, making riding fun even when it's wet.
