Formerly known as the Valkyrie Tour, the Coto Doñana Tour (named after the Spanish nature reserve) is a true touring bicycle for women, designed to take you and your gear anywhere. Load it up with front and rear panniers and discover your own Coto Doñana. If you’re in the market for a gravel bike, look no further!
In order to achieve flawless shifting, Coto Doñana Tour uses Shimano bar end shift levers, the standard with serious touring cyclists. You can keep both hands on the bars while shifting and if the rear shift lever ever loses its indexing ability, simply turn a screw and the lever will revert to friction mode.
Ultra low Shimano gears, fender clearance, the ability to accommodate tires from 1″ to 1-1/2″ wide and a sturdy but compliant steel frame and fork make for an unforgettable journey.
Frame and fork made by Waterford Cycles in Wisconsin.
Wheels manufactured by Velocity USA in Michigan.
