2018 Raleigh Talus 1
Keep on rolling when the sidewalk ends on the Talus 1. If you prefer the look and feel of mountain bikes over road bikes but still want to be able to do a bit of riding on the road, this bike is for you. At home on dirt, gravel, and pavement, this starter mountain bike will keep your adventure going when you decide it’s time to head off road and explore the path less travelled.
The upright steel frame provides a comfortable riding position for your neck and lower back, and being upright gives you a better vantage point for spotting any obstacles in your path. Shimano trigger shifters offer you 21 different gears to get you through whatever may cross your path without having to move your hands off the grips. The SR Suntour suspension fork and Raleigh Mountain Plush Saddle ensure that your ride is a comfy one. The large 27.5″ wheels and wide 2″ tires help you easily roll over bumps and potholes with confidence. And bonus fender mounts allow you add fenders to ride in inclement weather and stay (relatively) clean.
