The 7 Day Riding Week.

You want to ride to work every day while looking forward to your Sunday outing on two wheels? Then go for the Courier Lite with its light aluminium frame – available in three styles –, with its reliable Shimano Nexus gearhub and high quality components that STEVENS hand picked for you.

  • Low-maintenance, light city bike with high-quality specs
  • Shimano Alfine crank and Nexus 8-speed Premium gear hub
  • STEVENS aluminum fork w/ high steering precision
  • Racktime pannier rack with integrated struts and taillight
  • Stiffness and comfort due to tapered seat tube

Technology

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.

Tapered Seat Tube

The seat tube tapers from top to bottom. At the top it fits a slim 27.2mm seatpost that offers some flex and therefore increases comfort especially when riding over rough ground. At the bottom the large diameter nicley flows into the bottom bracket shell and downtube to provide great stiffness and drivetrain efficiency.

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.

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.
