Coming out the box as a perfect world tourer package, we review the Koga WorldTraveller29 to see if there is anything we would change.

Overall Score
A pedigree build that gives great confidence with intelligent component choice
Some prefer steel frames on tourers as they can be repaired anywhere

In 2008 Mark Beaumont broke the world record for riding around the world, and he did it on a Koga bike. So this is a company with a definite pedigree for long distance touring and adventure bikes.

The WorldTraveller29 is just that, made from triple hardened 6069 aluminium with a carbon fork to reduce trail buzz, capable of accepting lowrider pannier. 29 inch wheels help reduce rolling resistance offroad with 47mm puncture resistant tyres, while a 3x10 gearing setup means there is no excuse for being in the wrong ratio for the hills.

Reliable and bombproof Shimano SLX gearing keeps the bike moving while Magura rim brakes stop everything just as quick. Yes, rim brakes are old school, but in this case they have been specced to be completely reliable and easy to repair in the field should anything go wrong - not something you can always claim for modern hydraulic disc brakes.

This is a bike that really could take you around the world and back in its stride.
