For off-road cycling, the Talus 2 by Raleigh is a great place to start! Boasting features and components found on pricier machines, the Talus 2 gets you onto singletrack at an exceptional value.
The Talus 2 begins with a hydroformed aluminum frame that serves as a strong "backbone" for tackling challenging terrain. Big 29'er wheels provide a generous footprint on crumbly dirt trails, especially with 2.25" knobby tires. If you need a small frame size, the Talus 2 is equipped with 27.5" wheels, giving the bike a more proportional fit.
The Talus 2's 100mm-travel Suntour XCE suspension fork helps keep the front wheel planted over technical terrain. The fork's adjustable rebound for different rider weights and riding styles makes every trail more fun! Shimano shifters and derailleurs put 21 speeds at your fingertips. Tektro M280 cable-operated disc brakes provide reliable stopping power in all conditions, wet or dry. Got commuting or shopping in mind? The Talus 2 features built-in rack eyelets so you can also use the Talus as a capable city bike.
