Exclusive distribution deal kicks off in May, 2016 models launching September at special event

Raleigh scoops Salsa

United Kingdom bike shops have a new go-to supplier for Salsa Cycles as of May 1st 2015 – Raleigh UK.

Raleigh will be exclusively rolling out 2016 Salsa bikes, frames and accessories with in-store support to retailers, with the 2016 Salsa range launching in September this year at a dedicated demo event where dealers can come and test the new line-up first hand.

Raleigh will be offering full SRAM build kit packages with every Salsa frame via a new online Salsa bike-building tool on the Raleigh business-to-business site. There will be three different levels of build kit for each frame available, including wheels and finishing kits.

“Salsa’s mission statement is to keep the spirit of adventure alive in bicycling,” said Benton Hunt, Salsa global sales manager. “Raleigh has a long history and a solid reputation in the UK bicycle market. They are passionate about Salsa and our promise of Adventure by Bike. We’re excited to partner with Raleigh to bring adventure cycling to a new level and to continue to add value to independent shops in the UK.”

Salsa UK brand manager Bryan Harris said: “I’m thrilled to be launching the 2016 Salsa product range because they produce some of the coolest adventure bikes on the planet. I’ve long been a fan and we know there’s a lot of demand for Salsa in the UK ranging from fat bikes through to Tour Divide winning bikes."
