Raleigh Redux 2 Commuter Bike 2020 (Review)
The Raleigh Redux 2 is a bike built specifically for people who are commuting around their neighbourhood or town streets on bikes. The bike can also be used on mountain trails as well. The versatility and durability of this commuter bike are brought to the fore courtesy of the light aluminum frame, shock-absorbing fork, quality hydraulic brakes, and high-grade tires that provide great body stability and grip on any terrain.
Portable aluminium body
The body frame of this commuter bike is constructed from high-performance Aluminum, which enables smooth riding over tough terrain easily and at top speeds. It enables a smooth commuting experience as the rider is able to ride through road bumps and potholes without feeling shocks. The lightweight frame provides the rider with quick reaction points as the bodyweight is evenly distributed along the length of the bike.
Redux 2 is equipped with tires that are adaptive to any terrain encountered during a bike ride. They are wide and thick enough to provide excellent surface grip on wet or dry roads as well as tricky off trails. The thickness and great traction ensure great bike handling, body balance, and velocity when needed. To complement the tires, this bike comes with quality hydraulic brakes, that deliver high stopping capacity when employed.
A quality shift lever system
The Redux 2 comes with a shift lever system that enables smooth, seamless shifting of bike gears. The Shimano shift levers are equipped with 9-speed levels that facilitate quick gear shifting when taking on winding curves as well as bumpy, rough mountain trails. In other words, the biker does not use up too much energy, as pedaling is smooth and fast. The pedals are long-lasting as they are made from quality aluminum.
