This bike totally lives up to its whimsical name - the Wisp. We love the vintage geometry and the gorgeous cloud-like paint job, finished with brand new electric blue bar tape. Lovely!
But it's not all looks. This reliable Raleigh is also a nippy 5-speed runaround, perfect for short urban commutes, or lazy leisurely weekends.
We reckon the Wisp was designed in the 80s, but the lightweight steel frame will literally last you a lifetime. And it's even got a handy kickstand for simple parking.
The five gears are plenty for easy rides and are controlled from shifters on the handlebar stem, so there's no awkward stretch to switch gears like on older vintage bikes.
The top quality Weinmann caliper brakes can be triggered from your choice of levers, depending on your riding position - upright or down on the drops.
The Wisp is a no-nonsense machine that does the simple things well, whether you're pootling to the pub or rushing to work. Either way, and whatever the weather, the full coverage mud guards will make sure you arrive as clean as you left.
Best For: Will-O'-the-Wisps and anyone with an eye for the aesthetic.
