Tout Terrain unveils new Vasco gravel bikes

Tout Terrain Vasco
German bike and trailer manufacturers Tout Terrain have released a brand new line-up of gravel bikes named Vasco, including a range of builds to suit a range of budgets with either 650b or 700c wheels and a steel or carbon fork.
With the new Vasco family, Tout Terrain are introducing two new performance gravel bikes that they claim will push the all-road capabilities of the gravel category further than ever before. Whether it’s a spontaneous asphalt adventure after work or an extended bikepacking tour over several days off the beaten track, the Vasco GT 275 and Vasco GT 28 are designed to take it all in their stride.


Gravel bikes for any terrain

The foundation of this versatility that Tout Terrain have targeted with the Vasco range is the steel frame, which Tout Terrain’s designers have combined with a performance-oriented build.
In addition to two different wheel and tyre sizes (650b x 47mm or 700c x 40mm) the new Vasco gravel bikes feature either a carbon or steel fork. Depending on the model, there are 2X and 1X drivetrain builds available too.

Bikepacking ready

Grander adventures were also at the forefront of Tout Terrain’s designers’ minds. Many mounting options for bags, luggage racks, cargo cages and other accessories facilitate many different bikepacking set ups for road or off-road riding. The Vasco has been extensively test ridden and refined by Markus Stitz, founder of Bikepacking Scotland. Check out his blog on riding the Orbit 360 Thüringia here.

Two models, numerous options

The new Vasco models have several component kits to choose from on both the 650b and 700c wheel versions. All bikes are hand-painted and assembled with care in Gundelfingen near Freiburg, Germany.
