Ride A Bike's Top Ten Bikes for 2015 - Raleigh Tokul 2

Variety is something to be embraced while riding off-road.

The 2015 Raleigh Tokul 2 is designed to attack both the ups and downs found on today’s newer bike specific trails. 

Why we love it:  
Mountain bike hard tail with lots of value for just $750. Trail geometry, hydraulic disc brakes, aluminum frame, and beefy Suntour fork.

With a roomy cockpit pedaling is made easy, while the longer travel fork and slackened geometry propel you down the trail. Versatile and playful these bikes are created to be more than your average hardtail. 27.5” wheels marry the benefits of 26” and 29er wheels. This tweener size is incredibly versatile in the varying conditions found on trails. It’s capable of rolling over rocks and roots with ease just like the larger 29er wheel, yet nimble in hard to navigate situations. These elements combine to make a wheel adept in any kind of terrain and in all conditions.

The AL-6061 used to construct the frame provides a durable and lightweight platform for trail use. Promax hydraulic brakes and Shimano drivetrain provide the functionality and dependability needed for off road use. You’ll find size specific wider bars and a shorter stems for increased maneuverability and handling. Spec’d with a Suntour XCR 32, 120mm fork rough terrain is ready to be conquered.
