Nothing lifts the spirits like freewheeling down country lanes – and that’s what the Touring was built for. Light, comfortable, easy to use and fully equipped with carrier, lights, mudguards and kickstand, it’s got ‘let’s go for a picnic this weekend’ written all over it. Not literally, of course…Why fit hydraulic disc brakes to our versatile tourer? Simple: because they slow you down safely and reliably, whatever the weather’s doing. And that’s important whether you’re an everyday rider braving the traffic on the way to work, or an occasional weekend tourer – or both. A plush Suntour suspension fork and easy-shifting Shimano 3×8 gears will get you where you’re going in comfort. And a full complement of practical accessories – including dynamo-powered lighting, full-length mudguards, a kickstand and a neatly integrated carrier – ensures you’re ready for anything. The heart of the Touring is its high-quality, low-weight, double-butted aluminium frame. Designed with our Efficient Comfort Geometry to make light work of even long days in the saddle, it’ll surprise you with its nimble and intuitive handling. The Easy Entry version is sleek and easy to use, there’s a sporty-looking Trapeze option, while the Men’s classic diamond frame is available in five sizes for the perfect fit. Every frame features our exceptionally neat luggage carrier and gear cables routed inside the down tube, for long-lasting accurate gear shifts with minimal maintenance.
