Going on sale at the beginning of October, the Hot Rod style and graphics combine with the realistic looks and sounds of Turbospoke. Turbospoke is a bicycle accessory with a realistic-looking exhaust pipe that creates motorcycle sounds as you cycle without using batteries.
The Raleigh Hot Rod has a ‘Go Faster’ paint job, which is complemented with alloy V-brakes, aggressive MTB tyres, suspension forks and low rise handle bars with coordinated grips. Every special edition Turbospoke Raleigh Hot Rod also comes with three variable Motocards to tune the engine sounds of the Turbospoke, and a set of 15 custom-look decals and a realistic motorcycle style tailpipe tip.
Jayne Bakes, Raleigh product manager, commented: “In the feedback and testing we’ve done so far there’s been a lot of excitement around the Turbospoke, so we’re expecting these limited edition Hot Rods to sell out very quickly. It’s one of a few new innovations we’re bringing out on our 2013 models as we continue to push things forward in the design of children’s bikes.”
The Raleigh Hot Rod with Turbospoke will be available across the UK in bike shops, Halfords and Raleigh dealers.
