He packs light, takes only the essentials. Food and drinks to reach the next stop, a couple of energy bars for extra power. His bike is ready to go wherever he wants to go. Either for a weekend trip, microadventure or an extreme race on the other side of the world. It’s about the challenge, longing for adventure and chasing freedom.
Choose a comfortable position
Do you prefer a dropbar or a straight one? Make sure you choose the right handlebar, as your riding position can either make or break your trip... (How? Just test at one of our dealers!)
A dropbar gives you the opportunity to fit a bikepacking handlebar bag and has multiple riding positions. A straight handlebar on the other hand has other options for brakelevers and gives the bike a complete different look.
Comotion turn-shifter or Sram Double Tab
Either choose the Comotion turn-shifter for your Rohloff hub or opt for the Sram Double Tap race shifters. We can easily fit them on your drop bar.
Both the Cross Lite and the 4.29 have the option for a suspension fork. Beside that, you can either choose for a light and fast carbon fork or heavy duty steel one. The choice is yours...
The finishing touch of comfort
Whether you prefer a hard cambium saddle or a softer gel one; the finishing touch of comfort is for you to choose. Santos offers a wide range of saddles in various widths and softnesses. You can test them all at one of our dealers.
Santos Lite- or XL carrier
It might not be real bikepacking style, but leaving half of your essential stuff at home isn't cool either. So if needed, you can either mount the almost-invisible Santos Lite carrier or heavy duty Santos XL carrier on one of our bikepacking bikes.
Oh and how about fenders?
Your wishes and needs determine the frame of your choice. Do you expect to bring a lot of luggage? Do you prefer paved roads, single tracks or both? Santos offers a suitable frame for every purpose.
By the way, your frame is available in more than 50 colors!
Choose the kind of gear system you like. We offer the unique possibility to choose from various gear systems; opt for the reliable Rohloff hub, the low maintenance Pinion gear box or an affordable derailleur system.
Both Rohloff and Pinion can be selected with Gates belt or chain.
The finishing touch; handlebars, saddle, tires, rims, fenders, brakes, lights, front fork, grips, carriers ánd color! It's completely up to you; you decide íf you need it and what exactly you prefer. The result: your unique Santos.
