Panorama Cycles’ latest model, the Forillon, is a steel all-road touring bike designed to be loaded up and ridden around the world. Find photos, specs, and build details here…

The all-new Forillon is the first model in Quebec-based Panorama Cycles’ lineup that’s specifically centred around all-road touring, loading up with lots of gear, and riding around the world. It’s designed to be comfortable and stable when loaded down with gear and features a low bottom bracket, long chainstays, a 2×11 drivetrain, and burly 36 spoke wheels. The frame is built from Reynolds 525 steel tubing, with 12mm thru-axles, and a Chromoly 4130 steel fork to match. Lots of mounting points, including front and rear racks, fenders, triple cage mounts on the fork and under the downtube, are all standard, making it that much easier to haul enough gear for an extended tour.

The Forillon has some clever features, including a dedicated kickstand plate, spare spoke holders on the seat stay, rims with reinforced eyelets, and a wide range 585% gear range drivetrain. The frame and fork both have clearance for 700 x 50mm tires and are treated with an anti-corrosion internal ED coating. Panorama offers the Forillon in one well-rounded build kit, based around a 2×11 Microshift drivetrain, mechanical BB7 brakes, and bar-end shifters. Find the full build kit below.

The complete build retails for $2,149 CAD (~$1,675 USD) and is available now through
