Luchtreiziger- Dutch for “air traveler”, and ready to head for jaunts in town, across the country and over the globe.
The new Winter Luchtreiziger is designed to be a fast road bike with enough versatility to dress as a credit card tourer. The compact frame and oversized tubes make for a stiff and responsive ride, while the 28mm provide enough plushness to handle a variety of road surfaces. The crisp lug shape is reflected in the oversized forks crown and S&S stainless couplers. The coupler system allows the bike to be taken apart to fit in a non-oversized travel case. The Winter “feather” rear rack can also be packed flat, and along with the custom-finished fenders fits in the case. The travel package is rounded out with credit card touring sized Winter designed micro panniers (that convert to a backpack) and bar bag set made in X-Pac by RuthWorksSF.
The bicycle is kitted with an Ultegra 1×11 gear set and complement of FSA K-Force and SLK parts and TRP mechanical disc brakes for lightweight airline packing and easy hotel room re-assembly. The MKS pedals are designed for tool free removal and installation. The Luchtreiziger’s frameset and fenders are ceramic coated (including logo work) for a light, durable and unique finish.
