Fast

Style and design stolen from our aero family, compliance adopted from our endurance models and the geometry and responsiveness of a road racing bike – the Alpenchallenge is one seriously fast bike. High-performance features paired with IGH drivetrains - a belt-drive has never looked so good.

Agile

Thanks to super short chainstays and a unique fork design, this urban utility moves through town in a spirited fashion. Whether racing traffic or just racing yourself, the Alpenchallenge gets you out of the grind and into a zero-emissions lifestyle.

Adaptable

The Alpenchallenge presents the benefits of a super-fast, agile, confidence-inspiring ride without sacrificing room for comfy wide tires or fenders. The fast installation and removal of Curana fenders on the Alpenchallenge AC01 is naturally necessary when living a high-speed lifestyle.
