Pioneer Frame

At the core of the Raleigh Pioneer Trail lies its aluminium frame, balancing strength with lightness. This design philosophy ensures the bike is easy to handle across varied terrains while remaining durable for daily commutes. Complemented by Suntour suspension forks with 60mm travel, the bike easily absorbs shocks on rough paths and potholed roads, making every ride a comfortable journey.

Pioneer Components

The bike’s gearing system, featuring 16 speed gears, is meticulously tuned to offer easy and efficient cycling whether you’re cruising urban streets or tackling gentle climbs in the countryside. This broad range of gears means you're well-equipped to face whatever the road throws your way, without breaking a sweat.

Stopping power is provided by reliable V-brakes, offering precise control and quick response, which are essential for the unpredictability of our heavily congested roads. This braking system ensures safety and confidence, whether you're weaving through traffic or enjoying a chill out ride in the park.

The Kenda Tanwall tyres, with their trail grip, are the unsung heroes. They strike a perfect balance between durability, for daily urban use, and added grip, for those weekend trail adventures. Their design allows for a smooth transition from asphalt to unpaved paths, offering consistent performance and the freedom to explore.

Pioneer Trail Ride Experience

Riding the Raleigh Pioneer Trail is an experience characterized by comfort, versatility, and control. The bike's design ensures it excels in urban commuting, providing a ride that's nimble and responsive. However, its capabilities extend far beyond city limits. The gearing system and tyre choice allow the bike to adapt to countryside adventures, proving that it's built to explore.

Varying weather conditions and seasons pose no threat to the Raleigh Pioneer Trail. Its robust construction and thoughtfully selected components mean that it stands as a reliable companion all year-round. Whether you're facing summer's scorching tarmac or wet autumn leaves, this bike makes sure you have a stable and enjoyable ride.

  • Urban Exploration: Glide through the city with ease. The light frame and nimble handling turn every street corner into an opportunity for discovery.
