Back home, the Travelmaster 3+ proves its multifunctionality. It easily transforms into a fast commuter bike, guides you safely through busy city streets and carries your groceries on your way home.
The Travelmaster 3+ puts you in the driver’s seat and gives you confidence. It follows without hesitation. Even on fast downhills.
It has a super strong frame, a steel front fork and precision-built wheels that make swaying a thing of the past.
The Travelmaster 3+ can be equipped with more than 40 kg of luggage divided over 5 bags. For example, choose a Santos AdventureRack rear carrier and a Santos TwinRack lowrider.
The Travelmaster 3+ fits two wheel sizes, without making concessions! This is the Santos PLUS concept. Choose the comfortable 27.5-inch wheels with 62mm tires or take 28-inch ones with tires between 42 to 55 mm.
The two wheel sizes are suitable for both disc and rim brakes. We designed a clean, double brake insert, that perfectly fits both 27.5 and 28 inch rims.
The Travelmaster 3+ is available in 7 men's and 5 mixed sizes. The mixed frame has a low top tube and space for three bottle cages and a Santos Hold-it-all. The geometry of the mixed frame is designed to maintain the stable riding characteristics for which the Travelmaster 3+ is so famous.
Efficient and strong
The Rohloff internal speed hub offers a carefree cycing experience far off the beaten track. It will lead you to and from all corners of the world. A litte oil is all it ever needs. The combination Rohloff hub + Santos belt drive has been a succesful one ever since 2009.
The Rohloff hub has 14 gears and is available in 6 colors.
Silent and smooth
Pinion is modeled after proven automobile transmission technology and offers an ultra wide gear range. It is centrally integrated in the bicycle frame, wear-free, and extremely reliable. The unique combination with a Santos belt drive makes it super durable and very low maintenance.
The Pinion box offers 12 or 18 gears.
Travel bikes with power
The Travelmaster 3+ is designed with the future in mind. It is E-bike ready. This means the bike can be converted into an E-bike whenever you wish to do so.
It has a strong motor and a large battery for a long riding range. We have opted for a modular system to offer you maximum flexibility. Both now and later.
The strongest brakes with the most powerful braking power. Ready for long downhills. Depening on your goals, we offer different types of discs.
The Hope disc brakes have 4 pistons and extra large steel Santos (203 mm) and extra thick (3.5 mm) discs.
Or go for the hydraulic Shimano XT disc brakes with 180 mm steel Santos discs. Choose what suits you best.
The hydraulic rim brakes by Magura are robust and durable. They brake firmly and directly and are easy to dose. With the control wheel attached to the brake lever you can easily adjust the braking power; either more aggressively or with a more friendly stroke.
Changing brake pads is a piece of cake: no tools are needed and it's done within 5 minutes.
The Santos 2-in-1 brake booster is the only booster that allows you to mount the hydraulic Magura brakes on a 27,5 inch wheel with 62mm tires and mudguards. It is lighter and provides more braking power. It is a brake booster and mounting plate in one. Made of aluminum, so it won't rust. Good to know: it is easy to change and simple to use.
If you opt for SON lighting, you get a beautiful headlight with a wide and clear beam. This is a distinctive feature of the SON headlights. The connection to the hub dynamo is plugless, which makes it easy to take out the wheel. We mount the lamp on a Santos light bracket. so it shines perfectly over your tire and remains neatly upright.
The SON lamps are available in 6 colors, just like the corresponding hub dynamo and rear lamp.
The rear dropout on our Travelmaster 3+ is also suitable for derailleur. With this non-fixed derailleur part you can easily switch to another transmission system.
Something broken? Don't worry.
We all break things from time to time. No need to worry when that happens. We have designed the Travelmaster 3+modularly with as many standardized parts as possible. In the rare case that something breaks down, you will still be able to get it fixed. Even on the other side of the world.
For instance, we mount the Hydraulic Magura rim brakes on standardized cantilever inserts. These fit the commen V-brakes too. And cables are guided outside the frame to make replacing the brakes easy for you.
The headset and the quick releases have a standard size. The square bracket with BSA thread is also available anywhere in the world.
Furthermore, we have kept as much screw thread outside the frame as possible. Such as the attachment of the kickstand, the bracket case, the split part for your belt and the disc brakes. If you accidentally tighten a bolt too hard, you only have to replace that particular part and your frame is still intact.
Last but not least, the Travelmaster 3+ fits both 27.5 and 28 inch wheels.
