Elevation Outdoors Names RXC Disc Carbon As Best 'Cross Bike 

Elevation Outdoors recently ranked the Raleigh RXC Disc Carbon as the number one bike for Cyclocross season in their feature on 'Best Bike Gear.' 

The RXC Disc Carbon is race ready out of the box and has a Shimano Di2 Ultegra drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes with Clement PDX tires. It has an all new carbon frame and fork with thru axles in the front and rear to reduce vibrations and American Classic Hurricane Disc wheels with a race proven FSA SLK bar and stem combo.  

Editor's Note: "Based in the slop of the Pacific Northwest where 'cross has a core following, Raleigh has put a concerted effort into its racing team and its bikes. That shows in this more affordable version of the pro bikes built around the Direct Connect carbon frame, which is light but pliant enough for abuse."

Road Bike Review Features Raleigh's 2015 RXC Pro Disc 

The Road Bike Review crew visited Raleigh’s booth at Sea Otter to see the new 2015 RXC Pro Disc.

While more information will be available shortly about Raleigh’s 2015 RXC Pro Disc, the RXC Pro Disc is Raleigh’s top-end cyclocross bike and is a dream bike for any cyclocross rider.

Editor’s Note: “Reshaped chainstays that avail 7mm more heel clearance to counteract the wider axle spacing; a reshaped BB bridge that provides more tire (and mud) clearance; thinner top tube and seat stays claimed to improve ride quality; and a lower BB height, which should improve handling but will reduce pedal clearance.”

2015 CX Bikes at Sea Otter 

 

Raleigh USA recently attended the annual Sea Otter event in Monterey and the 2015 cyclocross bikes were the talk of the crowd.

During the days following the event, Raleigh received favorite write-ups from media in attendance.

 

Peloton:

Things we want to ride Sea Otter 2014: "We fell in love with this bike last cross season and in the process learned why it helped Raleigh carve out a spot at the head of the cross field. Redesigning such a beloved bike can be a dangerous proposition, but it appears Raleigh has done it very successfully."

Dirt Rag/Bicycle Times:

"After years of offering a singlespeed cyclocross frameset, Raleigh now offers a complete bike with a pretty killer build."

"Also new is this disc brake carbon CX bike; the RXC Pro. The wheels use thru-axles front and rear, and the Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes are smoothly integrated with the frame."

CX Magazine:

"Raleigh launched the RXC carbon cyclocross frameset and bikes three years ago, with the Raleigh-Clement team racing the frame in cantilever and disc brake configurations to countless victories on two continents. After revamping its aluminum RX cyclocross bikes (including the Editors' Choice Award-winning 2014 RX 2.0 cyclocross bike), the cyclocross-crazy company has followed up with similar changes to the carbon models."

Road Bike Review:

"Raleigh has revamped its top end RC Pro cross bike, adding thru-axles front and rear."

BRAIN:

"Single-speed cyclocross bikes are nothing new to Raleigh...whose Furley has been a favorite among commuter and budget-minded 'cross weekend warriors in recent year. Now comes the 2015 RXS... designed specifically for enthusiast racers who prefer single-speed simplicity on the 'cross course."
