Gear system and brakes
This touring bike is suitable for all road surfaces. It features a 7-speed hub gear system. A Shimano front brake as well a backpedal brake ensure safe braking.
The frame shape of this rental bike primarily offers comfort. With the so-called Wave frame, the top tube is missing entirely and thus a safe mounting and dismounting is given. The riding position is straight and very comfortable.
The bike has a comfortable gel saddle or a saddle equipped with Slow Fit Foam. Furthermore, this touring bike has a quick release. This allows you to quickly adjust the saddle of your rental bike to the seating position that suits you without tools.
This rental bike is equipped with a Schwalbe Marathon Plus tire. With this so-called "unplattable" tire, the puncture protection is incorporated into the casing with a 5 mm thick insert made of high-quality and resilient materials. For this reason, these tires are much more resilient and offer increased protection against a puncture.
