Schindelhauer Ludwig XVIII

At the heart of Schindelhauer’s new vanguard Ludwig XVIII lays the Pinion P1.18 gearbox. 18 evenly spaced ratios that make for a total gear range of 636% outline the current pinnacle in shifting. Every gear conveys the immediacy of a single-speed transmission while the centrally mounted gearbox creates an evened-out balance. Equipped with exclusive CNC-machined disc brakes, Brooks saddle and Gates’ Center- Track System, Ludwig XVIII can be fully customised according to customers’ requests.

Being sporty doesn´t mean less comfort. We have successfully managed to combine both features- sportiveness and comfort- with the Ludwig geometry. To achieve this, we took the geometry of our tough singlespeed frame and carefully modified it by relocating the bottom brackets slightly lower and applying a slightly extended headtube and fork to compensate for the increased saddle height. Along with the extended headtube all Ludwig-series bikes provide a relaxed and suitable touring seating position.
