New UK distributor revealed for the folding bike brand

Raleigh snaps up Dahon

Following parting ways with Zyro earlier this year, the Dahon brand has been picked up by Raleigh to distribute to UK retail.

Raleigh will take on the distribution role effective from January 2012. Up until that contractual agreement begins, all services will continue to be managed by Zyro, Dahon said.

“Raleigh is one of the best-known names in the cycling industry and we are thrilled to have them on board with us. This is a great opportunity for our company as we continue to grow the brand in the UK," said Dahon founder and CEO Dr. David Hon.

"We will continue to strive to meet their needs by providing high quality and innovative products as well as good service before and after sales.”
