The trend of gravel bikes has also left its mark on the tandem industry. The Evolution tandem series of Santana allows individual configuration as a Graveltandem. With the new, 10-inch compatible carbon fork from Santana with optional hydraulic or mechanical braking system you have the Graveltandem also on dirt roads at any time under control. The robust HX 531 650B (27.5") wheelset from DT Swiss can be mounted on up to 42 mm wide off-road tires.
All models can be used despite light weight best for touring with racks. For the Z-couplings, optionally available for all Evolution models, only Allen keys are needed for disassembly.
The Gravel equipment you can configure via our configurator after selecting the 10" disc brake fork.
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, 73 mm. The new bottom bracket standard BB386 (86 mm 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 31.6 mm 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 Di2 2x11 drivetrain with a gear ratio that is comparable to the previous 3x10 drivetrain. Chainrings 34/50 alternatively 36/52 and 11-speed cassettes with 11-40 teeth, alternatively 11-42T (11-46T / 11-34 ...) and the rear 10 "disc brake Gen4 free of extra charge.
Pro components: carbon fork with 10" disc brake, carbon cranks with timing belts, new Spinergy wheels, carbon handlebars and seat posts, and much more ...
