Award-winning Design

Awarded by renowned design experts and decision-makers from the bicycle industry, Gustav stands for the well thought-out concept of the functional, aesthetically sophisticated everyday bicycle. In the course of the relaxed frame geometry and seating position as well as comfortable tyres, short distances in the city can be managed just as comfortably as extended tours. Another highlight is the frame-mounted front rack with VarioStrap system, which keeps the load securely in place.

Comfortable. Relaxed. Low maintenance.

Enough clearance for large-volume tyres, sufficient loading height for the front carrier and a relaxed riding position were the goals when developing the geometry for Gustav. The low bottom bracket and long head tube achieved just that. Even cobblestone paths become a new favourite shortcut with this riding comfort.

Stable, robust and yet a true lightweight - the frame with sloping geometry is made of high-quality 6061 aluminium. The smoothed weld seams using the "flat-welding" process are a visual highlight.

Due to the mounting on the frame, the steering behaviour remains agile even with larger loads. An integral part of the carrier concept are the innovative tensioning straps (VarioStraps), which can be individually adapted to the size and shape of the load.

The patented Belt Port, an almost invisible opening at the dropout, makes it possible to change the belt drive. The carriage tensioning system is used for optimal adjustment of the belt tension.

Gates Carbon Drive

Since day one, Schindelhauer has been using the superior belt drive from Gates, which consists of embedded carbon fibres. All bikes are specially designed for the belt drive in order to take advantage of all the benefits.

Zero maintenance

Oiling, greasing and rusting are a thing of the past.

Highly efficient

With a higher wattage, the efficiency is higher compared to the chain.

Long life span

The Gates Carbon Drive lasts about 3-4 times longer than a chain.

Stay clean

Due to the lack of oil, it keeps your trousers away from dirt.

Super quiet

No chain - No more chain running noises.

Lightweight

The Gates Carbon Drive weighs 20% less than a classic chain.

Comfortable on any terrain.

Whether extended tours with climbs or speedy tailwind passages, the Shimano Nexus 8-speed transmission offers enough leeway with a spread of 307%. Shift and brake levers are optimally integrated in the tidy cockpit and easy to reach. The high-quality rubber grips ensure optimum grip even on uneven terrain.

Being low maintenance and ultra-quiet due to the pawl-free design, the Shimano Nexus is also a perfect match for our quiet belt drive. Gears are easily and precisely engaged with the rapid-fire shifter.

See and be seen.

The Busch und Müller headlight ensures good visibility at night, while the Curana rear light is inconspicuously integrated into the rear aluminium mudguard. Thanks to the hub dynamo, you don't need to worry about the power supply - a standlight function is also on board.

Luminary, reflector, LED and cooling are optimised to achieve a very wide and homogeneous illumination of the road despite a remarkably compact design.
