The Pioneer Tour is Raleigh’s urban utility bike, combining a sleek design and traditional styling. Perfectly suited to city life, this bike is built for practicality and style, plus tarmac-friendly tyres and a fully equipped design make it ideal for your commute. The Pioneer Tour’s Aluminium frame is both strong and lightweight making it able to withstand the rigours of everyday use whilst still being a pleasure to ride. Swept back steel handlebars allow an upright and more relaxed riding position while the adjustable stem and seatpost enable you to fit the bike to your needs. A padded Selle Royal saddle and ergonomic grips provide extra comfort during your ride and the bike’s high quality finish is complete with unique metallic paint and highlight colours to make you stand out from the crowd. The fully equipped design includes an aluminium kickstand, front and rear mudguards designed to keep your clothes clean during your ride and a rear pannier rack allowing you to attach a pannier bag as a convenient alternative to carrying a rucksack. Though best suited to city streets, the Pioneer Tour’s CST Zepplin tyres have a tread pattern which ensures this bike is suitable for light trail riding and canal paths so you’ll be ready for wherever your adventures take you. Puncture protection means you won’t spend all your time at the side of the road fixing that nasty puncture and to help you be seen and safe at night the tyres are feature a reflective strip around the rim. Equipped with 21 speed Shimano Tourney gearing with mega range feature to minimise the impact of steep hills by increasing the distance the rear wheel is turned for each pedal revolution. Paired with Shimano’s EZ fire shifters to make shifting between gears simpler, you’ll be prepared for the hills but still be able to zip along on the flat. Available in crossbar or low step frame options in a choice of colours.
