aktiv Radfahren (June 2015)

 

Named after the well-equipped Hoplite warriors of antiquity, the Hoplit PI Reiserad is the perfect companion for the longest, most demanding trips. This touring and expedition bike combines everything needed to ensure that you won’t be let down when you go off the beaten track.

Starting with the extremely stable, scratch- and corrosion-resistant frame: with its longer head tube and somewhat shorter top tube, the Hoplit PI’s geometry gives the slightly more upright posture best suited to touring. The bottom bracket is positioned lower than on a mountain bike. Carrying heavy loads on a bicycle raises the centre of gravity; a lower bottom bracket brings it back down again and increases stability. The chain stays are vertically ovalled where they join the forged Pinion housing, strengthening the rear triangle and improving wheel clearance. Towards the dropouts they become horizontally oval and therefore more flexible, which improves ride comfort. The sophisticated rear dropouts allow horizontal adjustment of the thru-axle, to facilitate tensioning of the chain or drive belt. Also incorporated are the integrated side-stand mount on the left and the release point on the right, which opens to allow a drive belt to be fitted.

With its Pinion gears and drive belt system (developed by Rennstahl in conjunction with Continental), the exceptionally durable and reliable Hoplit can be used with 650B or 700C wheels – depending on whether the priority is shock absorption or reduced rolling resistance.
