Thorn's new Rohloff equipped tandem

thorn enduro

Somerset based Thorn are a well-respected brand of mainly touring bikes, but recently have branched out into mountain bikes, but now have their sights set on refreshing the tandem design. Thorns use of the internal gear hub, the Rohloff, is putting them right at the front of the innovation wave.

They’ve built a new tandem, and stuck a Rohloff in the back wheel, and in doing so have produced possibly one of the ultimate tandems now available. Derailleurs, especially on tandems with the increased load, have a habit of being a pain, but the Rohloff hub eliminates any problems.

You’ll be able to choose from three sizes and three colours, including classic British racing green. Thorn are renowned for their attention to detail and the Raven will be no exception; bosses will cater for every conceivable add-on while stainless steel cable guides keep cables neat and tidy.

The Raven Dynamic is the first in the range priced at £1499, the Adventure at £1599 and the Discovery at £1699. Thorn even offers a 100-day money back guarantee, should you not like it. If you want a closer look they’ll be at the International Cycle Show in October, or you can visit the Thorn website for more information. You can also phone 01278 441500 or email [email protected].
