Pashley Pathfinder Tour
Pashley Pathfinder Tour
The Pathfinder Tour is built with longer adventure in mind, but with the versatility to strip all accessories for a brisk Sunday ride, or to dash across town on the morning commute. The Shimano 105 groupset provides efficiency as well as speed, and unique stainless steel dropout plates offer a sleek and protective finishing touch.

The Pathfinder has been created for that perfect combination of all-purpose, all year round bike with a choice of derailleur or hub gears. It effortlessly combines modern geometry and performance with the enviable Pashley aesthetic to create a truly refined bicycle capable of traversing the map whichever route you choose.
Hand-crafted using a specially selected lightweight blend of butted Reynolds 531 and 631 steel tubing and fine-lugged construction, the refined geometry of the Pathfinder provides a dynamic riding style with a light and responsive feel. A longer fork and extended headtube make for a more upright (comfortable) riding position whilst still retaining the classic horizontal toptube. A long wheel base offers comfort and stability when loaded with panniers and the steering geometry provides predictable control over rougher ground.
Overall performance is enhanced by powerful disc brakes - renowned for being the best in their class – coupled with quality contact points provided by a Brooks Cambium Saddle and GB anti-slip bar tape.
