Ready to race cross in it's simplest form? Hop on an RXS single speed with one gear, zero cables, and a strong will, then prepare to crank your heart out while you stand and deliver.
Made with the tried and true Raleigh cross frame but with belt drive capability, the RXS is a classic example of Raleigh's single speed cross bikes we've been building for over a decade, because cyclocross is part of our DNA, our heritage.
The mid-high-end RXS cross bike has a superlight alloy cross frame with internal brake routing and thru-axle, full carbon fork with flat mount disc and hydraulic disc brakes for the ultimate stopping power in all conditions.
Tubeless-ready Impulse wheels with Clement MXP tires make this race proven, course conquering cyclocross machine a top pick. Of course, the RXS can also be used for more than just racing, so take it around town or to the office to fully appreciate its magic.

Very well designed.Review by Steve Bagnard
What can I say. I just love this bike. Could not figure out what I needed to do to this sweet little machine. It needs nothing. Buy it and ride it. It's a joy.(Posted on 1/6/2018)
Dont hesitateReview by Mikey BOverall Quality
I'm a roadie, through and through. I bought this bike during a great sale by Raleigh, admittedly with some reservations. It is an absolute home run. If you're worried about trying single speed, don't be. It has been a revelation in beautiful simplicity for me. Get on, rip around, have fun. No fuss, no hassle, super low maintenance. Its awesome.

Extremely complete SSCX bikeReview by NachoooosOverall Quality
I bought this bike last year to compete in the SSCXWC. I had dabbled in single speed before by using regular frames with various chain retaining solutions. These were always disappointing.
This Raleigh is one of the most well thought out cross bikes I've ridden. The geometry is perfect for modern cross courses. The disc breaks have excellent modulation. The top tube is the perfect shape the shoulder. These are details that add up to an excellent package. Minor complaints: The fork is not the stiffest that I have ever ridden, but it's not a problem on muddy, bumpy cross courses. The wheels are also quite heavy for racing, but they mount tubeless with a nice tire profile.(Posted on 9/5/2017)
