Why is my bike heavier than stated in the catalog?

It is not always possible to realize the exakt weight for each bike, size and equipment exactly on the gram. Our figures refer to the smallest frame size without pedals, always .

But even in the same frame size, the weight can be quite different. This is due to a higher incidence of frame material, longer welds, longer brake lines / shift cables / outer casings, etc...

Also attachments can be a reason for weight fluctuations. This includes, particularly the tires.

For each frame size up to 250g - 300g additional weight can add per bike. We always try to publish accurate weight data. To eliminate all variables, you can visit your local dealer and weigh your dream bike in the shop yourself, in order to decide objectively.
