Take the Continental Twin on a tour across countries or wheel it out for day exploring new roads. Go fast or go slow. It doesn’t matter. When you ride a tandem it brings a smile to your face and the world smiles back.
Every Continental Twin is built to order. This means the geometry, the tube lengths, the specification, everything is chosen exactly for you, your partner and the journeys you'll take together.
It takes six months from the first conversations we have with you to getting your Continental Twin for your first ride. In this time we'll talk exactly about what you need and where you're going so that we can design and build your perfect tandem. It's actually a joyful six months, filled with the involvement of having a bike built especially for you, knowing the care and complete obsession over the detail that's going into it. Neil and our team of designers and builders are in touch every step of the way. It's a truly special experience.
Using titanium for the Continental Twin gives a superb balance between low weight, comfort and strength. It responds superbly when you settle in for a long climb. It takes the buzz out of the road and the sting out of bumps, which really makes a difference to the stoker. And it’s been built to be strong enough to load up with everything two people need for an extended tour. This build quality is backed up by our 10-year warranty, so this really is a long-term relationship
Relaxed geometry means that it inspires confidence on more twisty roads and downhills. And clearance for up to 700 x 45C tyres means that when smooth tarmac turns into an unmetalled road, you can carry on rolling. The Continental Twin has been thoughtfully designed to be a tandem you can ride on any road and not feel beaten up.
With mounts for four bottles, racks and guards, everything’s covered for your longer adventures. Load it up and tackle continental crossings, pedalling together in partnership. There’s something special about spending time on a tandem, developing your relationship with your ride partner. Wherever you’re going together, you’ll get there faster on a tandem.
