Even if you’re average weight, when fully loading a bike it can take you very quickly to the max capacity of a bike. On our Kibo's this is less of a problem as they are designed for heavy loaded touring, but even with this bike we have max system limits of 130kg for combined, rider, bike and load weights - that weight applies to the Skyelander, Kibo and Pamira. Assuming the bike kitted out with racks etc weights in circa 15kg-17k, you are carrying a load of 30kg then this leaves a max rider weight of 80-85kg.

If you need a higher system load capacity than 130kg then we can do a few things:

Firstly, the frame and forks, we can use a combination of wider diameter tubes and thicker tube walls.

Secondly, the components. we can switch the tyres and rims to those with a higher capacity.

We recently built a gravel bike for a customer who is 6'7" tall and 23 stone - this bike had extra wide drop bars, extra strong tubes, a special carbon fork designed for heavier riders, as well as extra strong hubs and rims. It didn't stop there, we even sourced some extra long cranks.

 If you would like to discuss a Stanforth with a higher load capacity hen just drop me an email or give me a call on 07850 881438.
