DAWES Karakum

The Karakum is a long time favourite from the Dawes Touring range. Featuring a lightweight alloy frame and chromoly fork it’s a great, lightweight tourer, suitable for any distance you think you can handle. Distinctive because of its butterfly handlebars it offers unrivaled comfort with multi riding positions on those long tours. A roll call of quality components consist of Shimano Alivio 27 speed gears, Shimano hubs, Shimano V-brakes, Schwalbe Silento II tyres, front and rear pannier racks and an ultra comfy Dawes saddle, you’ll quickly start to realise why the Karakum has been around for so long.
