125 years ago, roads were not what they are now. They were unforgiving and cobbled. Most roads then were nothing more than dirt paths that were rutted out from horse buggy wheels. This is when we started making road bikes.
Road Racing: A category true to our hearts, deep in racing heritage, and abundant in advancing technology. While we revere our storied history in racing, we strive to always create a new and improved race machine. The Militis series is the pinnacle of that rationale.
Bike performance is directly linked to shape and fit of a bike. Endurance riders demand fast bikes that are comfortable enough to pedal for hours, the Revenio and Capri meet those demands. The 2014 Revenio and Capri have received updated geometries in both the alloy and carbon versions. A key highlight includes the slackened seat angle, which shifts the rider’s center of gravity back and takes some weight off the handlebars. The result is reduced strain on wrists, elbows, neck and lower back. Less fatigue translates into improved stamina and comfort.
It’s true. It’s not the destination, but the journey. It’s about enjoying the route and taking in everything along the way. Our Endurance bikes have been re-examined and re-designed to ensure that every Cause Ride, every solo century or exploring a new local ride are your best yet. Because when you’re not feeling fatigued or strained at mile 67, the finish line appears so much closer.
The 2014 Raleigh Cyclocross bikes will continue to build Raleigh’s legacy in the mud. We examined every aspect of our proven Cyclocross bikes in an effort to take what was already good and make it great. All our bikes are packed with new technology which includes new alloy frames, new carbon forks, wheels and components. All combined to make the lightest and highest performance Raleigh cross bikes to date.
In an age of technology no one has been able to create a ride that matches the feel of a steel bicycle. We know this better than anyone in the bicycle industry. And it’s why we continue to make steel bikes like these today.
Combining the speed and agility of a road bike with the comfortable, upright riding position of a hybrid bike, the Cadent and Alysa are the perfect everyday sport bikes. The core purpose of these bikes is to be fun, fast, and stylish. Whether it be commuting, supporting an event ride, or even just casually riding, they will keep you comfortable without sacrificing performance.
Not everyone has the luxury of perfectly smooth pavement and easy commuting, and not every dropbar road bike is perfectly fit for every commuter. Hence our City/Path bikes are a do-everything, go anywhere urban commuter.
The Tour de France? Let’s be real here. We aren’t exactly the spandex wearing, Tour de France crowd now are we? We like to have fun our bikes but not at the expense of our dignity. Pump up the tires and lets go for a spin.
Raleigh’s urban commuters deliver the responsiveness of a road bike with the ruggedness of a mountain bike. Whether clearing potholes, jumping curbs, or navigating city traffic, the Misceo and Mesika are quick, agile and ready to handle any mixture of conditions.
We’ve made the weapons for you. Now you can build them as only you’d have it built. All of our finest bikes are available as framesets for you build to suit your personality and riding style.
