2018 Raleigh Talus 2
If you crave stability and like the look and upright feel of a mountain bike, but still like to hit the road, consider the Talus 2. At home on dirt, gravel, and pavement, this bike will keep your adventure going when you decide it’s time to head off road and explore the path less travelled.
The lighter weight alloy 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 24 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 stay nimble but stable over bumps. And bonus rack and fender mounts allow you haul more gear and add fenders to ride in inclement weather and stay (relatively) clean.
