Working closely with S&S, the team at Paketa have come up with the next logical progression in high-performance tandems, this time aimed squarely at the wanderer in all of us. Even as a daily rider, it's still head and shoulders above anything else on the market except our own V2/V2r, and if you only have one tandem, this is it. As a travel tandem, it is simply without parallel. The weight difference is about three pounds vs. our industry-leading V2 or V2r design, creating the possibility of a sub-25 lb. travel tandem that packs into regulation-sized airline cases. The design philosophy is simple: no compromise! We've stuck with our standard, oversized magnesium tubing to ensure that the all of the stiffness, responsiveness, and exceptionally smooth ride of the V2 is preserved while still keeping the weight low and durability high. In order to realize this, we've specified custom-sized titanium S&S couplings, and the engineers at S&S have come through brilliantly with a novel concept aesthetically integrated with the frame profile (shown below) while providing all of the strength and durability S and S is known for.
