The Evolution tandems with their innovative frame design represent the new standard ...
So far, the dimension of the bottom tube (oval tube between the two bottom brackets) was limited by the width of the bottom brackets, 73mm. The new bottom bracket standard BB386 (86mm case width) now makes larger dimensions possible. The now more stable bottom tube makes it possible to eliminate the lateral tube * while still having the same ride quality and lateral stiffness. This leads to a significant reduction in the frame weight. While Santana were making such radical changes to thair frame design they also adopted industry standard 1 1/2″ – 1 1/8″ tapered forks and 31.6mm seatposts so owners can run any stem or seatpost they like
Of course, all Evolution tandems are also available with Santana's Z-Couplers for easy travel with the Safecase case.
The new standard equipment is equipped with the Ultegra 2x11 drivetrain with a gear ratio that is comparable to the previous 3x10 drivetrain. Chainrings 34/50 alternatively (optional) 36/52 or 39/53 and 11-speed cassettes with 11-32 teeth, alternatively 11-40T (11-46T / 11-28 ...) and the rear 10 "disc brake free of extra charge.
Pro components: carbon fork with 10" disc brake, carbon cranks with gates timing belt, new Spinergy wheels, carbon handlebars and seat posts, and much more ...
* Introduced by Santana in 1983. So far standard for high-quality tandems.

Santana uses only the finest tube sets for their handcrafted tandem frames. The "Spirit" uses seamless drawn, double-butted Spirit-Niobium tube sets with wall thicknesses of only 0.4 - 0.7 mm.
The Easton Scandium tube set used in the "Sovereign" saves another 400 grams. The approximately 15 kg light "Sovereign" is equipped like all Elite models with symmetrically spoked 32-hole wheels with Hadley hubs (Made in USA) and carbon fork.
Our Team Ti-700c is not only the most comfortable mass-produced tandem, but also the most durable and stable you can buy. Titanium combines the weight advantage of 7000 aluminum and the damping properties of Nivachrom/Niobium steel and is therefore noble, robust, easy to maintain and extremely durable.

Anyone who has test ridden a Beyond understands why it was the dream of every tandem enthusiast.>New Generation Evolution< It is the most comfortable, lightest and fastest tandem known to us. The Bi/Fusion™ technology combines the advantages of carbon and titanium materials.
During the production of the carbon tubes, the titanium end pieces are simultaneously baked in. This creates weldable carbon tubes that allow individual frame construction. In the connection area, titanium represents the optimum in strength to weight ratio. In the tube area, carbon is unbeatable. The Beyond frame, made from ultra-light Isogrid® Bi/Fusion™ tubes, weighs in at a magical 2580 grams for a medium frame size. For models from 2012, there are also the noble IsoGrid® PHD tubes, which are glazed in the transitions.

There are occasions when even a tandem is not enough. Young families more and more frequently sit on a triplet or even a quad. These tandems offer space for more than two people and, thanks to special children's cranks, even young children can pedal along diligently.
Santana built the first triplet back in 1979. More than 35 years later, Santana has improved many things, built hundreds of them and is the only manufacturer in the world that produces triplets in series.
