Raleigh Bicycles Launches 2017 Line
Stuntman (MSRP $2,500): Imagine having one bike that’ll take you everywhere you play: from fire roads, to gravel, to smooth, twisty singletrack. Completely new for 2017, the all-road Stuntman takes inspiration from mountain bike design and is built to handle a wide range of surfaces with ease. The steel disc frame (Reynolds 631 butted chromoly) means lasting durability and the 50c tires create uncompromised capability and confidence for the rider. It even has a 65mm dropper post to adjust the seat height on the fly. Tie in the small details, like a Raleigh classic leather saddle and matching bar tape, and you’ve got one good lookin’ bike that’s your ticket to any adventure.
Roker Comp (MSRP $2,900): The Roker Comp is the pinnacle of Raleigh's commitment to all-road riding with custom geometry for gravel roads (and beyond). Made for adventure, the 11-speed super-light carbon frame is spec'd with 1X gearing with a wide cassette, disc brakes, fender mounts, three bottle cage locations, 40c tires and clearance for almost any tire made. The Roker Comp allows you to ride in weather conditions others decide to sit out.
Clubman Carbon (MSRP $2,299): The steel version of the Raleigh Clubman dates back to the 1940s. Now, new for 2017, the Clubman is available in carbon. The dependable Clubman is always ready to go, whether you’re planning a full day in the saddle or commuting to work on a drizzly morning.
Super Course (MSRP $999.99): All new for 2017, it’s Raleigh’s steel heritage designed with women’s-specific geometry. Lasting durability and style in a 4130 chromoly frame, Shimano Claris compact gearing, and Brooks Cambium saddle and bar tape. Available in three colors - sky, green, and blue.
City, Style, and Fitness:
Redux 3 (MSRP $900): Downtown bumpy pavement? Pedaling across town? Off road? It’s all possible with the Redux 3, which couples rugged, aggressive urban geometry and disc brakes with wider street tires to tame all elements. Simple and durable, the Redux 3 is the perfect bike for city riders who encounter everything from detours to potholes on their morning commute. It’s equipped with a 1x10 drivetrain, massive Schwalbe Big Ben tires, reflective detailing, and rack and fender mounts.
The Redux also comes in a 24” and 26” model, the Redux 24 (MSRP $350) and Redux 26 (MSRP $350), for the kid that wants to ride everything, everywhere, all the time. Also check out the Redux iE (MSRP $3,200) electric bike, below. The Redux line makes it possible for the entire family to ride together.
Gala (MSRP $400): Explore your city streets in style on the Gala; a steel, low-step frame from Raleigh, the inventor of the all-steel bicycle. Upright and relaxed body positioning lets you soak up the view while gliding along with comfort and ease. Pedal to the Farmer’s Market and know you’re set to haul everything home since the Gala has a wicker basket and rear cargo rack with elastic straps. This bike also has steel fenders with integrated reflectors and a heritage style brass bell. It comes in three colors: bright yellow, electric blue, and misty sky.
Alysa 4 (MSRP $800): The aluminum, blue Alysa 4 gets the cyclist to her destination, fast, and allows her to enjoy the ride. If you’re looking to ride for fitness and fun, and don’t want the drop handlebars seen on road bikes, the Alysa 4 is your bike. It’s lightweight (even has a carbon fork), a 1X11 drivetrain (no gears in the front so it’s sleek and easy to maintain), and hydraulic disc brakes (for improved stopping capabilities in any weather). The Alysa 4 also has wider rims than comparable bikes; if your tire pressure is low (for example, if you forget to pump up your tires frequently) it’s less likely that you’ll get a flat and delay your ride.
Mountain and Fat Bike:
Pardner (MSRP $850): Owners of the Pardner fat bike will never have to worry about mud, snow, or large obstacles ruining their ride. A great option for riders just getting into fat biking, the Pardner houses a nine-speed drivetrain, sturdy steel frame, and 4” tires for a powerful, four-season machine.
Tokul 4130 (MSRP $1,799.99): A playful bike made for the mountain biker that’s got a deal for steel. This strong and durable hardtail is designed around an updated Reynolds 4130 butted chromoly frame and has a 125mm dropper post to change your seat height, and increase the fun, when climbing and descending. New for 2017, the Tokul’s 27.5 tires are plus size for increased traction and roll-over-anything capabilities. There’s also the aluminum Tokul 3 (MSRP $1,000), a great beginner mountain bike that will evolve with the rider.
Kodiak 2 (MSRP $1,500): Looking for a full suspension plus bike at a reasonable price? The Kodiak 2 is a trail bike that has it all. Climb and descend with confidence with 120mm travel, 27.5 plus size tires (for increased traction and roll-over-anything capabilities), tubeless ready rims (don’t worry about flats), and a 1X11 drivetrain with a wide range cassette (sleek and easy to maintain with the capability to climb anything).
RXC (MSRP $3,800): The RXC is Raleigh’s top-of-the-line cyclocross bike, equipped with the frame and components raced to victory by members of the Raleigh-Clement Team. World Cup tested, the carbon frame is spec’ed with a SRAM Force 1X drivetrain with hydraulic brakes, thru-axle front and rear, and threaded bottom bracket. It’s modern technology mixed with a healthy dose of old fashioned fun -- a competitive steed when you’re looking to podium during your weekend ‘cross race and an unmatched machine when you just need to ride.
RXM (MSRP $2,100): Get rockin’ with the all new RXMetal. No matter what your tune (or course), the RXM will deliver with a Reynolds 631 butted chromoly disc frame and front and rear thru-axles for a snappy and predictable ride. This colorful frame is equipped with a Shimano 105 11-speed drivetrain and topped off with a Brooks Cambium saddle and black cotton bar tape. It’s the perfect mix of the versatility of Raleigh’s ‘cross platform, steel heritage, and joy of the ride.
RX24 (MSRP $700): Thanks to the RX24, cyclocross is now a family affair. All new for 2017, the RX24 is for anyone in the 4’6” to 5’1” range that loves ‘cross as much as Raleigh does. The bike features a lightweight alloy 24” frame, 1X drivetrain with adjustable reach levers perfect for small hands, and disc brakes so your little speed demon can attack the ‘cross course with ultimate control.
Redux iE (MSRP $3,200): An electric version of the popular Redux line, the new Redux iE features a 250W Currie Electro-Drive Centerdrive system with a 36V integrated downtube battery that allows the bike to reach a peak speed of 28MPH. The Redux couples rugged, aggressive urban geometry and disc brakes with wider street tires to tame all elements.
Superbe iE (MSRP $1,700): The Superbe has been in the Raleigh line for decades and, for 2017, is available as an electric bike. With the efficiency of an e-bike (the Superbe iE uses a 350 watt, rear mounted motor) and an upright riding experience, it’s Raleigh’s classic style with modern technology.
