Our Landescape Duralumin Tandems are beautifully hand-made with all the welds filed smooth, a finish only usually seen on our own hand-made bespoke steel frames. We offer our usual made-to-measure service so all Landescape Tandems are built custom and one-off.
If you think you know aluminium frames then think again, Duralumin is actually a metal, which is an alloy of aluminium, copper, magnesium and manganese. … The Duralumin, which is effectively given heat treatment, can be effectively resistant to corrosion. It can carry heavy loads and is ductile. It is especially suited for aircraft and bicycles! Our high-quality Landescape Tandems are manufactured from tubing specifically made and drawn for Tandems. We use 7020T6 with wall thicknesses of 1.8mm at the joints and butted to 1.4mm in the centre of the tubes. The post-weld strength of 7020T6 is greater and therefore gives a stronger, lighter frame than less expensive frames made from cheaper materials and sourced from the Far East. The material we use, its butting and lightness make for a stiffer frame with better power efficiency and handling but not at the expense of comfort.
With lightness and strength hand-in-hand, the large offering of standard sizing and made-to-measure options for each model you can be assured that we are able to build the tandem to suit your exact needs. From track to trail, on or off-road or just pootling along enjoying the countryside for a day or an extended tour, we have a Landescape Tandem for you. Delivery is usually 8-12 weeks.
