The "Little Black One".

Under its elegant matt black appearance numerous qualities are hidden that will convince the rider from the very first pedal stroke. The ensemble of a lightweight aluminium frame, STEVENS' proprietary S-Lite Aluminium fork and the innovative 12-speed gear box with Magnesium housing results in a low overall weight despite the full street kit – and thus in high agility. The belt drive will do its duty over many thousand kilometers with very little maintenance. And the well-balanced seating position is just right no matter if for relaxed cruising through the city or a fast-paced weekend outing.

Pinion C1.12 Gear Box

Pinion C1.12 Gear Box

Like its bigger sibling he legendary P1.18, the 12-speed gear box from Pinion takes the place nowadays usually occupied by electric motors. And it gives you several reasons to keep using your muscle power to 100 %: Among them is a gear spread of 600 %. 12 gears that make sense and thanks to a housing made from magnesium, the box is 600 grams lighter than the top-of-the-line model.

QR15 Front Thru-Axle

"15" stands for the diameter in millimeters, "QR" for quick release. Combined they are the most useful method to fix the front wheel to the (suspension) fork. With convincing advantages: high stiffness, precise positioning of the brake disc and super-easy handling. So STEVENS specs almost all its mountain bikes and even high-quality trekking bikes, cross bikes and pedelecs with a thru-axle. Additionally, especially with 29" MTBs axle spacing is increased from 100 to 110 mm which makes the design even stiffer.

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, significantly lower maintenance effort.

Tire clearance up to 47 mm

Those who are riding on rougher surfaces now can mount up to 47 mm wide tires to benefit from more comfort and flat protection that derive from their larger volume, and that can be ridden with lower pressure. Frame and fork are already prepared accordingly.

STEVENS S-Lite Aluminium Fork

S-Lite Aluminium Fork

This is what modern rigid forks look like: The straight fork legs and fork crown are made in one piece - this reduced the number of welds and guarantees highest stiffness and steering precision. Full-size mudguards and a low-rider pannier rack can be attached just as easily as an elegant head light bracket. The QR-15 thru axle version can additionally be made more safe against theft with the optional Pitlock system. And still the STEVENS S-Lite aluminium forks lives up to its name when put on a scale.

Pitlock Thru-Axle Lock Available

For STEVENS bikes with a S-Lite rigid fork there is a thru-axle lock from Pitlock available as an option, including a 15-mm thru-axle made from aluminium, adaptor, PIT-key and code card. for more info see www.pitlock.de – Product "Set 19 thru axle 15mm for Stevens".

Tapered Seat Tube

The seat tube tapers from top to bottom. At the top it fits a slim 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.


Using water pressure aluminium tubes are transformed from their original round shape into their ideal shape determined by STEVENS engineers and designers.

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.

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 brake system more reliable than hydraulic disc brakes - that is why we strongly advice everyone, who is riding their bike (nearly) 12 months a year to choose one of our models with a disc brake. 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.
