SL

Frame variants

What do you need in an adventure touring bike? We made our own list and built the Kathmandu SL around it: light, stiff, strong, versatile, reliable... and, above all, comfortable. The IC luggage carrier combines with our aluminium Superlite double butted frame to make a formidable load-carrying companion for any adventure, big or small. Decked out with Shimano's ultra-reliable XT transmission for a wide range of slick-shifting gears - plus matching hydraulic disc brakes for fast, safe stopping on any road - it's all you need to broaden your horizons. With a RockShox fork to smooth out the roughest of roads and a Selle Royal saddle for day-long comfort, it's our ultimate bike-for-all-reasons.

Details

When curiosity takes you further afield you need a frame that's up to the task. The Kathmandu SL combines stability, strength and comfort thanks to a double butted frame that removes weight from areas where it's safe to do so, and adds material where it's needed for safety. Internally routed cables keep your gear shifts silky smooth for longer, reducing maintenance and contributing to the frame's sleek looks. Speaking of which, our IC luggage carrier blends its structure seamlessly into the frame's, combining ease of use and superb strength and stability with an elegance that's often missing from a touring bike. There is no lighter, stiffer or stronger luggage rack, period.
