Are you ready to don the ultimate fashion accessory? Introducing the Superbe step thru steel bicycle. Designed for women with a serious sense of style and appreciation for the finer things, the Superbe is a gorgeous new ride from Raleigh made to match your signature style.
This work of art is not only superbly comfortable to ride, but it also shows off your superb taste. With paint colors influenced by up and coming designer Madison Howe, each colorway is fashioned after a well-known shopping district—from British racing green representing London’s Regent Street and classic black for New York’s Soho district to iconic ivory for Chicago’s Magnificent Mile and dusty pink for Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive. But that’s not all… Raleigh dressed these bicycles with beautiful lock-on leather grips, soft supple leather saddles with classic coil springs, historic Heron insignias inside the chain ring, custom wrap-around chain guards (to keep your treasured trousers from getting caught up), brass and copper etched nameplates, retro white tip fin fenders, brass bell, and removable wicker basket with handle to take shopping with you.
The attention to detail is incredible. As Madison put it, Raleigh is truly “committed to high-end materials” because “quality matters.” And this bike rides just as beautiful as it looks—from the smooth-shifting 7-speed drivetrain to the Superbe’s relaxed position that allows you to see what’s up ahead and stop easily to smell the roses. The classic, low step-thru steel frame allows you to get on and off the bike easily, even in a skirt. The look and feel are indeed, in a word, superb.

Step-throughs not only for womenReview by lagatta de montréal
I'd just like to point out that the step-through frame is not only for women; it can be useful for dads and other men transporting children, and above all, it is an ideal solution for people with slightly-limited mobility, such as cyclists with minor disabilities and older cyclists.
A couple of your colours are probably too "girlie" for most men, but the Racing Green and Soho (or "Amsterdam") Black are utterly unisex. Are these for sale in Canada?
Beautiful classic design.(Posted on 10/30/2017)
Excellent. That bell though...Review by kbOverall Quality
Pretty easy to assemble, despite the general instructions that weren't overly helpful. The seat will need a good amount of breaking in. It's gorgeous and I love riding it. But seriously that bell needs a revamp. I'll be replacing it.(Posted on 9/11/2017)
Excellent vintage styling!Review by SpiritedGalOverall Quality
I purchased this model a couple of days ago in the British racing green colour. I am in awe of how beautiful it is! I was searching for a vintage bicycle and was surprised to see something so classic looking that was brand new. It rides very smoothly and is well balanced, even with a basket full of groceries. Note that it is a steel frame and therefore is quite heavy, especially with a full basket. Definitely not something that you want to be carrying up and down stairs. The seat is described as soft... and my rear attests that brand new it is quite firm. The care pamphlet for the saddle indicates that it will soften up in 500-800km of riding... I can't wait! I do wish that it came with seat and handle covers to keep the beautiful leather from becoming damaged by careless riders who bang up your bicycle while squeezing theirs into the rack. I've been having a difficult time finding covers at my local bike shops.(Posted on 9/8/2017)
So cuteReview by CCassOverall Quality
I love the fit, functionality and look of this bike. The standard ground shipping was also super efficient and came within a few days. I knocked off a star because it was scratched during shipping.(Posted on 9/5/2017)
