Here in western Oregon, the Kalapuya (or Calapooia) mountain range features steep forested mountainsides glowing green with moss, shining where swift streams cut into rocky outcrops opening into fertile meadows filled with wildlife. The terrain is remote and demanding, but the rewards are absolutely priceless. 

Venturing into the toughest twisting descents and demanding gravel climbs, the Kalapuya tandem is the next evolution in performance off-road tandems. With all its capability, you will find its outstanding ability on pavement beyond belief. Outfitted with the optional Rolf Prima carbon wheelset, some fast road tires and our other performance options, you'll find it hard to tell apart from our Macchiato ultralight road tandem. Why not pick up a spare wheelset and have it ready to report for paved or unpaved adventure at a moment's notice?
