Raleigh Launch Bold New Hoppa & Classics Leisure Bikes

February 23, 2021 - by Client News

Raleigh – the UK’s best known bike brand with over 130 years of experience – has today announced the launch of its brand new Hoppa leisure bike, along with the new bold colourways for its new Classic models. Mixing traditional designs with vibrant colour and modern componentry, the new leisure bikes come teeming with personality; offering a new perspective of local trips around town.

Sometimes you just need to grab life by the bars and enjoy the ride, one pedal at a time. With a raison d’etre to spread the unique joy of cycling far and wide, the brand new Raleigh Hoppa and Classic bikes are designed to unlock a sense of freedom, fun and discovery suppressed since childhood. Transforming riders’ perspective on mundane trips to the shop and around town, the new leisure models promise to give riders the uninhibited excitement they felt when riding on their first bikes.

Made for cruising, meandering and moseying, the Raleigh Hoppa is sure to turn heads wherever you take it. Inspired by the vibrant colours of California’s Venice beach – juxtaposing the bright neon signs of the strip with the clear blue ocean – the new model is available in Hot Pink, White or Blue. Coming in a one size fits all 45cm frame with compact 24 inch wheels and a 3 speed Sturney Archer derailleur, the bike has been stripped back to keep maintenance low and concentrate purely on the thrill of the ride. Finished with polished silver componentry and a sprung saddle, riders can literally hop on and off (excuse the pun) to brighten up the dullest of journeys.

Also new for 2021 are new bold colourways for one of Raleigh best-selling ranges; the Classics. Inspired by over 130 years of British design, both the Willow and Sherwood models blend modern componentry with a timeless retro look you’ll fall head over heels for. Inspired by the great outdoors, the new models are now available in a range of earthy colours. The Willow now comes in Cherry, Bronze and Dusty Pink, and the Sherwood in Navy and Sage.

With comfort and style at the forefront of the design philosophy, both models boast a twin tube low-step frame and basket – bringing a touch of elegance to all of your local trips. Available in either a 43cm or 48cm size frame, the use of a Shimano Tourney 7 speed groupset ensures riders are properly geared for every incline (especially those who can’t avoid that monster hill to get home).

Like all Raleigh’s bikes, both the Hoppa and Classics are delivered using FSC approved boxes and use recycled materials and free from single use plastic.

The new Hoppa has a recommended retail price of £450. The Willow and Sherwood are available for £550 and £450 respectively.
