With the 2014 Raleigh Tokul 2, You’ll be Coming Down the Mountain When you Come

The 2014 Raleigh Tokul 2 Helps You Enjoy A Special Connection With The Mountain

Mountain bikers know how personal the connection between man and machine can be. Even the best riders are only as good as their bikes, and the most wonderful trails are useless if you take them on a bike that just doesn’t feel right. Thats why Raleigh introduced the 2014 Tokul 2.

Raleigh knows that 26” wheels offer tighter handling than their larger counterparts, but the 29”s are far better at rolling over rocks and other rough terrain. But what if you need both? After all, no trail worth taking is going to be an easy ride. Thats why the mid-size 27.5” wheels of the 2014 Tokul 2 appeal to so many riders looking to get the best of both worlds. Schwalbe Rapid Rob Kevlar Guard tires connect you to the road and ensure that you feel the path beneath you while still delivering a smooth ride.

The hardy yet lightweight Weinmann U28 27.5” rims and 14g stainless steel spokes guarantee that no matter how bumpy the road (or how bad the crash), wheel damage won’t be something you need to worry about. The perfect compromise, the Tokul 2 gives riders an excellent blend of control and stability, meaning that you’ll never look down a tough trail and wish you had a different bike. But of course even the wheels are just a part of the whole, and that’s why Raleigh put the same amount of thought into designing the rest of the bike as well.

The Raleigh Mountain Saddle, mounted on a 100 Series Dual Bolt seatpost makes for a comfortable ride that you will never want to end. And when it is time to end it you can count on the Promax Decipher Hydro Disc brakes to get the job done. Equipped with a top of the line Shimano shifting system and a sturdy KMC 9-spd chain, the 2014 Raleigh Tokul 2 is just as determined as you are to make every ride one to remember.

So why limit yourself to 26” or a 29”? Be honest, no one likes having to settle for just one option. So for those looking to do everything on a mountain bike, the 2014 Raleigh Tokul 2 is the perfect companion. With it’s innovative wheel size and overall dedication to quality, this bike is just as rough and ready as you are.
