Ludwig XIV - Elite Sports Performer


Even with such a noble pedigree as a member of the Ludwig family, Ludwig XIV really qualifies as a mountain goat. It boasts a 14-speed Rohloff Speedhub and a Formula CÚRA disc brake system. This versatile bike combines the maintenance-free reliability of a Gates Carbon Drive belt drive with the efficiency of the Rohloff hub. Individuality is the theme for Ludwig XIV: colour of choice, mudguards, or LightSKIN seat post – the bike is fully customizable to include your personal touches.

  • 14-speed Rohloff Speedhub
  • made to order and fully customisable
  • low bottom bracket, long top tube and head tube for a sporty riding position also suitable for touring
  • hydraulic disc-brakes
Each of these models is custom made. If you're interested in purchasing please contact a Schindelhauer dealer or us directly.
