City. Country. Speed.

STEVENS' citybike high achiever not only excels by its elegant appearance. K1 Superlite aluminium fork and hydraulic Shimano disc brakes, ultra-slim LED rear light integrated into the carrier, Schwalbe Marathon Racer tires, 11-speed gearhub and a weight of just 13.6kg (30lbs) make the Super Flight speed effortlessly through city and countryside.

  • Tripple butted aluminum frame and comfort-enhancing tapered seat tube
  • Super-light K1 aluminum fork w/ tapered steerer
  • Superior Shimano Alfine 11-speed gear hub
  • Forged, adjustable dropouts for chain adjustment
  • Innovative Busch&Mu?ller headlight w/ daylight function and stationary taillight

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.

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.

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.

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

It can't fly but it just feels like it. The Super Flight offers that extra oomph nobody can really explain. It's not only the racy but relaxed seating position and its comfortable ergonomics.

Our favourite when it's all about great riding characteristics. Reasonable price, first class specs and the most agile bike. Light, fast, nimble.

Flying would be bragging, although the Super Flight from STEVENS only weighs slightly short of 14 kg. Even loaded, the bike skims ahead quickly.

High flyer of the year. The Hamburgians' specialty is designing smooth-running, elegant bikes. Light, airy, lively describe the particular potential of the STEVENS quite well.
