Top Technology For More Fun.

This Urban Commuter's stiff hydroformed frame and one-piece aluminium fork are much more than optical statements - they are the basis for a super-innovative drivetrain consisting of a central 18-speed gearbox and a low-maintenance drive belt. For voluminous and fast 29 inch slick tires - and for what STEVENS' engineers themselves like to enjoy: Maximum riding fun, even when it's "only" on your way to work.

  • Classy urban bike with stiff hydroforming aluminum frame
  • Lightweight and stable one-piece fork construction
  • Frame-integrated Pinion 18-speed gears
  • Low-maintenance and noiseless Gates belt drive
  • Extra wide, smooth running Schwalbe grooved tires

Technology

Pinion P1.18 Planetary Gears

Where there's normally a bottom bracket shell there is now a complete control center with a total of 18 tightly and evenly-stepped gears - always providing the perfect gear for any kind of situation. This little powerhouse – made in Germany – also guarantees perfect handling thanks to its optimum weight distribution.

Integrated Pannier Rack Mount dropout

In collaboration with pannier rack specialists Tubus and Racktime STEVENS' engineers have developed a dropout that also serves as an elegant pannier rack mount. It not only looks fantastic, it also ensures that forces caused by luggage or large amounts of groceries are evenly transmitted inot the frame - resulting in a more stable and safer design.

Even when you can't see the strut that connects the pannier rack to the fender - it is there. The strut runs below the fender and provides - in connection with the rack mounted to the fender - more stability and lateral stiffness.

Belt Drive

A belt drive, as the name suggests, uses a drive belt instead of a chain to transfer power from the cranks to the rear wheel. Since the belt cannot be split like a chain the special STEVENS frame utilizes a splittable seat stay, but the advantages are convincing: lower weight, silent operation, almost endless longevity without any maintenance.

Hydroforming

Using water or oil pressure aluminium tubes are transformed from their original round shape into their ideal shape determined by STEVENS engineers to perfectly withstand any load without any weight penalty. Riders of allround bikes and pedelecs will benefit from a better stability caused by hydroforming even when they are touring with heavy luggage.

SPF Superlite Rigid Fork

SPF stands for "Super Plastic Forming" which allows the manufacturing of large and complex parts like bike forks in one single piece. This way there's only a few welds between the fork shaft and legs. This makes the fork very light and laterally stiff. Yet it's equipped with everything that makes a versatile rigid fork: Lowrider rack eyelets, QR-15 axle mount and tapered shaft for high lateral stiffness.

Tapered Steerer / Tapered Headtube

Fork shaft (or steerer tube) and head tube are tapered, meaning their diameter increases from top to bottom resulting in a conical shape. The diameter needs to be bigger at the bottom since this is where higher stress is applied - especially when the bike has a higher total weight due to luggage or an e-drive and battery. Also tapered steerers feature a smoother force transfer (like forces caused by hard braking) to the downtube than forks with a continuous 1 1/8" diameter.

Triple Butted, Double Butted

Meaning a frame tube has three or two different wall thicknesses along its length. Triple butted (TB) is the usual technology with STEVENS high-quality frames.
Tubes with different wall thicknesses are optimally adjusted to certain ways of manufacturing or to withstand specific loads. Where the highest loads occur or where tubes are welded, walls are the thickest. Butted tubes allow frame weight to be lower by several hundred grams.

Adjustable Dropouts

High quality STEVENS frames equipped with a gear hub or Pinion 18-gear box come with adjustable dropouts. These make correct tensioning of the chain or drive belt very easy. Adjustment via headless set screw and Allen key allows very precise alignement. Two fastening bolts on each side provide tight grip. On bikes with derailleur shifting the chain is tensioned by the derailleur.

QR15-Steckachse vorn

Die „15“ steht für den Achsdurchmesser, das „QR“ für „Quick Release“, also Schnellspanner – und zusammen für die funktionellste Methode, das Vorderrad in der (Feder-)Gabel zu verankern. Die Vorteile sind bestechend: hohe Steifigkeit, präzise Bremsscheiben-Positionierung und kinderleichte Bedienung. Also stattet STEVENS fast alle Mountainbikes und sogar die hochwertigsten Trekking-, Crossbikes und Pedelecs damit aus. Vor allem bei den 29“-MTBs wird sogar noch die Einbaubreite erhöht – von 100 auf 110 mm, das ist noch steifer.

Smooth Welded

Additional step in welding. The first, rippled weld, typical for aluminium, is covered with a second smoother weld. This not only improves looks but also lowers the risk of notches in this spot, which makes the frames more durable.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes – Trekking

There is no more reliable brake system than hydraulic disc brakes - that is why we strongly advice everyone, who is riding their cross, trekking- or city bike 12 months a year to choose one of our models with the „DISC“ suffix. Brake power is easy to modulate and does not fade a bit in the wet. Also the brakes are almost maintenance-free. And your local STEVENS dealer will gladly explain to you what you need to take care of when removing and re-installing a wheel
