Size Guide: 2014 Mesika Series

Unique Women-Specific Geometry

The Mesika models have a unique women-specific geometry that maximizes standover height and stability. All Mesikas feature women specific saddles for maximum comfort and handle bars with ergonomic, grips for smaller hands.

Frames

We revamped the 2014 Mesika line for improved handling and comfort. We managed to achieve this by simply lowering the bottom bracket. The result was an overall lower center of gravity which increases the standover clearance, improves stability and produces a more confident ride. For additional rider comfort, this year we’ve introduced the Raleigh Sizing System that is based on an exhaustive database of bike fittings. This system is used during the development of new geometries allowing both customers and sales staff to determine the best size for the rider quickly by referencing a size decal on the bike.

For Women, by Women

Graphics for all the Mesikas were designed by a woman with input from a panel of women. The result is a bike that looks as good as it rides. A big thank you to all the women who helped us during the design process!
