Women's Health Features RX 1.0 Women's 

The June issue of Women’s Health featured Raleigh’s RX 1.0 Women's.

Raleigh’s RX 1.0 is created with women for women. Raleigh utilizes a women’s feedback panel throughout the design process of each bike, such as selecting touch point components like bars and saddles or helping with color schemes and graphic direction. We take pride in the attention to detail we give our women-specific bikes and the experience we help create for the woman rider.

Editor’s Note: “Curious about cyclocross? This alloy steed is one of the few for women in this category.”

Fox News Features Tripper 

Fox News featured the Raleigh Tripper in a segment about summer bikes and bike tools.

The Tripper features an internal 3spd that has the simple and clean look of a singlespeed but with gearing that makes it easier to get around. The 4130 Chromoly frame is a tough platform built to take abuse (without abusing your wallet). Rack and fenders are an easy install.

Road Bike Reveiw 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.

Interested in the RXC Pro Disc? Click here for more information.

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.”

BikeRumor.com Gives Full Overview of Raleigh's 2015 Cylocross Bikes 

BikeRumor.com dedicated an entire post to Raleigh's 2015 cyclocross line after viewing all of the bikes at the recent Sea Otter event.

While more information will be available about Raleigh’s 2015 cyclocross bikes in the near future, BikeRumor.com went into great detail about Raleigh’s RXC Pro, RXC Pro Disc, RXS, RXW Comp, and RX 1.0 and 2.0.

For the BikeRumor.com feature about Raleigh’s new/upgraded 2015 cyclocross bikes, click here.

Editor’s Notes:

“The new bikes are better than ever and perfectly equipped for mud and cowbells.”

“As their first full bike, the new RXS looks dialed.”

“Raleigh is responding by offering a new higher level womens’ specific build with the new RXW Comp. Using the same frame as the RXW, the comp receives and improved monocoque full carbon fork and an upgraded spec. Thanks to the American Classic Racing wheels, SRAM Force 22 group, and high end TRP cantis, the Comp is 2 pounds less than the RXW at 19 pounds, and retails for about $2,000.”

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."

http://pelotonmagazine.com/feedzone/things-we-want-to-ride-sea-otter-2014/

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."

http://dirtragmag.com/sea-otter-roundup-box-raleigh-easton-manitou-and-sun-ringle/

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."
