Van Nicholas Pioneer Rohloff Belt Drive Titanium Touring Bike

The ultimate expedition-touring bike with the award winning 14-gear Rohloff hub for low maintenance smooth shifting, anywhere you want to go.


The ultimate expedition touring bike must be strong, adaptable, safe but above all reliable in even the most demanding terrain and conditions.


In designing the Pioneer, our first aim was to create a bike that had as little as possible that could go wrong: so no hydraulic cables, no derailleurs and no front suspension. Simple, yes, but we haven’t skimped on the materials.


Full 3Al/2.5V Ti construction using aerospace-grade, cold-worked, tapered and size-specific and multi-shaped tubing with CNC machined detailing. Available in 48, 52, 55, 58cm & Tailormade.

Lifetime Frame Warranty

Titanium won’t rust, corrode or break down. We are extremely proud of our products. This is why we guarantee our frames for life
Crash Replacement Warranty

If a Van Nicholas Titanium frame is damaged in an accident not covered by our manufacturer warranty, we will provide a replacement frame for 50% of the current value.
Warranty Re-Certification

Consumers wanting to sell or purchase a used van Nicholas Titanium bicycle or frame can send it directly to our office for Re-Certification and the issue of a new manufacturer’s warranty.
Hand Brushed Finish

We think the best way to showcase our Titanium frames it is to hand brush them to bring out the natural brightness
Van Nicholas Seamless Optiformed Ti Tubing

To ensure a perfect bike fit, we automatically adjust the tubing for bigger frame sizes.
Engraved Head Tube Logo

We etch our classic logo directly onto the head tube, so everyone will know the bike you’re riding is a Van Nicholas.
Eccentric Bottom Bracket

This allows minor adjustments to be made to ensure correct chain tension on bikes where adjustments cannot be made in the rear section.
Internal Headset

By locating the bearings in the head tube there are fewer parts, lower weight and reduced maintenance.
CNC Machined Dropouts

Machined to perfection form one single plate. Built to cope with high stresses, with a sophisticated look.
Belt Drive Ready

Lighter, cleaner and quieter than a regular chain. The ideal choice for commuter and tourer alike.
Rohloff Gearing System

The award-winning 14-gear enclosed Rohloff hub offers smooth, almost unnoticeable shifting, even when stationary.
Fender Mounts

Allows for the fitting of fenders to enable safe, spray-free all-weather riding.
Rack Mounts

Provision for the attachment of pannier racks and increase comfortable load-carrying capabilities.
3rd Water Bottle Bosses

When your travels take you far from civilization, a third water bottle is a must.

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.


    Thanks for choosing his item ...
