The Evolve, the world’s first production monocoque carbon tandem, is the flagship of the Santana Reveal frame line. As opposed to the tube and lug construction previously used, a molded carbon frame provides infinite opportunities for optimizing stiffness and weight. That’s why it’s the preferred method for top-of-the-line single road bikes – but no bike company had committed to the engineering and tooling necessary for a monocoque tandem due to the smaller volume in what they consider a niche. Now in partnership with Criterion Composites, Santana has engineered and produced a state-of-the-art molded tandem frame right here in California! Besides offering stunning looks and incredibly light weight this engineering project has resulted in the most comfortable tandem we’ve ever built. Utilizing our Reveal frame design, the Evolve has EVO 386 bottom brackets, lower top tubes, and longer 31.6mm seat-posts. This means a lower stand-over height so each frame size can accommodate a wider range of rider heights. The Evolve gets a matching tapered thru-axle carbon fork that sits flush to the frame with an internal headset and features Santana specific Gen4 10” rotor front disc brake.
Also available with our Z-Couplers for easy travel with the SafeCase system. Starting at $19,995 with the Evolve Professional level build kit.
