Raleigh, the iconic British bicycle brand, ‘creates cool’ by bringing one of their most exhilarating products back to life, the 1980’s inspired limited Tuff Burner edition. The re-make of the MK1 Raleigh Super Tuff Burner screams BMX pop culture and has us wallowing in nostalgia as it goes live today for pre-orders on Raleigh’s website. As ubiquitous as the rubik's cube, the new Tuff Burner features a vibrant colour scheme with bright blue and yellow contrasts. The double hole chromemoly frame with loop tail rear, skyway mag wheels and the three piece BMX padset means pure retro aesthetics.
The 1980’s are known to be close to the heart of many, especially the We Were Rad collective,
Raleigh , the British bicycle brand, is supporting Alans BMX and the charity Bikes4Ukraine - Alans BMX will be raffling off two one-off custom Raleigh Burner Bikes in Ukraine colours to raise funds for the charity so refugees can be supplied with bikes. So far, thousands of refugees have left their homes with next to nothing and public transport is under extreme pressure. With limited alternative ways to travel, Raleigh and Alans BMX understand the urgency to support a charity.
Bikes4Ukraine is raising funds to support the collection of second hand bikes and transportation of them to Ukrainian cities such as Lviv, where thousands of people are currently seeking refuge. In order to help the charity, formed by Mikael Colville-Andersen, an internationally renowned expert on cycling and urban mobility, Alans BMX built one Mk1 and one Mk2 Raleigh Burner BMX bikes. The bikes are specced with Dia-Compe brakes and Tioga tyres supplied by Ison Distribution, special graphics by Delcals
