Rubin Super Legere (2020 model)

Flyweight in touring format

  1. low dead weight
  2. Carbon fork
  3. first-class switching components
  1. 160mm front brake disc
  2. Tires too weak for terrain
  3. Battery lighting
  4. low driving comfort

At around 12 kg, the Rubin Super Legere ranks among the lightest trekking bikes of the 2020 season. The weight balance cannot only be explained by the fact that a suspension fork is not used, which is now standard in the trekking sector and instead of which the Diamant has a rigid carbon fork . The red pencil was also used in other places. Electricity for the lighting comes from the battery instead of a hub dynamo, the mudguards are made of plastic and the comfort of a spring-loaded seat post has to be dispensed with. In addition, there is a greatly reduced luggage rack made of aluminum, while many representatives of the guild still rely on steel. If necessary, a lowrider luggage rack can also be mounted thanks to the appropriate eyelets on the fork. The slim frame does the rest, but did not reveal any disadvantages in terms of statics in the test environment. In addition to the tight design of the model, the narrow 35 mm tires also indicate that the Diamant prefers to be moved on the road. Unfortunately, the front brake system is only equipped with a 160 mm brake disc - the current standard is 180 mm. Incidentally, the noble tourer is not “casual”, because the testers rate the sitting posture as clearly sporty. It cannot be changed due to the lack of an adjustable stem.
