Details

The larger 29-inch wheels on Raleigh's Talus 29 translate to more speed everywhere. You'll climb and descend with ease thanks to its butted-aluminum frame, 100mm of front suspension and quality wheelset. Stopping is easy even in sloppy conditions with the powerful Promax hydraulic-disc brakes. Plus, the sweet-shifting Shimano 24-speed drivetrain makes the most of your momentum, while the race-proven Kenda tires grip great even in the loose stuff. Wherever your ride takes you, the Talus is ready.

I had owned comfort hybreds before, but wanted something more heavy duty, with 29er wheels and disk brakes. Bike Shop had this on sale at 530 which was a nice price. Saddle made me sore and the grips are way cheap as well. Shop did not have everything ajusted well.

Just bought this bike a couple days ago. Starting out in the mountain bike world and have put on 32 miles. Love the bike, been on several trails, so far amazing on the intermediate trails, nice cruising on the beginner, still have to take it on expert. Handles jumps well and is easy to manipulate. Great bike for the price!
