2015 Raleigh RX 2.0 NOW AT THE SHOP! Come Check it Out!

Read about the Entire 2015 Raleigh Cyclocross Line!

(Article and Pictures from

At the top of the range, the RXC Pro gets updated thanks to the direct feedback of pro racers like Ben Berden. Nearly every inch of the frame has been changed with one of the biggest changes being the move to a 142x12mm rear thru axle dropout. One of the biggest concerns of going to a wider rear end has always been heel clearance of the frame, yet somehow Raleigh worked some of their magic to make the 142mm frame 7mm narrower than the comparable 135mm QR frame. So it’s wider, but it’s narrower. Got it? The front also stiffens up with a new proprietary 15mm thru axle post mount fork with captured hose routing along the back.

Other tweaks include a new lower chain stay bridge for much better mud clearance which prevents mud from accumulating behind the front derailleur. Raleigh felt the frame was already plenty stiff, so the PF30 equipped frame is only 2% stiffer than the previous version which is probably due to the through axle. What Raleigh really wanted to improve on was the vertical compliance at the seat so they dropped the post diameter to 27.2mm and thinned out the top tube and seat stays which resulted in a claimed 37% more compliance.

Cable routing has been slightly improved to keep things running cleaner and easier to replace while the system uses swappable housing stops for mechanical or Di2 drivetrains. The RXC and RXC Pro share the same frame, and differ only in spec with the Pro using Di2/hydraulic and the RXC using full mechanical.

The company has offered single speed specific frames  for a number of years, but never a complete bike. As their first full bike, the new RXS looks dialed.

Raleigh’s Brian Fornes tells us that they were so excited about the TRP Hylex single speed hydraulic brakes that they wanted to offer a full build around them so they did. The RXS is a true single speed frame with no shift cable braze ons, derailleur hangers, or otherwise – just a Gates Center Track belt drive system tensioned with an pressfit eccentric bottom bracket and a split seat stay to load the belt. The wheels use Raleigh’s own 23mm Impulse rims which are of course wrapped in Clement MXP 33mm tires.  Unlike the RXC and RXC Pro, the RXS sticks with quick releases front and rear.

The RX 1.0 and 2.0 get a new coat of paint with the sweet Gulf Racing inspired colors, and the 2.0 also gets the upgrade to the excellent TRP Spyre mechanical discs.

Better turn out and better prize money for women means cyclocross is attracting more females to the sport, and 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.

2015 Raleigh Maverick

Impressive 2015 Bikes from Raleigh

"Raleigh have a new Maverick range of bikes with frames built from various types of Reynolds double-butted chromoly tubing.

'The original Raleigh Maverick was one of the first ever mountain bikes, opening up a new world of trails and routes to off-road explorers,' say Raleigh.

'The new Maverick opens up the route less travelled once again. On gravel, on mud or in the urban jungle, it’s a true all rounder with the personality to match. The Maverick takes classic day touring geometry and tweaks the handling to be better suited for multi-terrain use.'

So, the Mavericks are designed as do-it-all bikes that can handle everything from commuting to gravel riding – gravel, lest you haven’t noticed, being the latest buzz word in the cycling world.
There are three Maverick bikes in the range. The Maverick Elite comes equipped with a Shimano Sora groupset with TRP Spyre cable-operated disc brakes, and 35mm Schwalbe Spicer tires on Raleigh’s own RSP CX2.0 wheels.

This bike looks like it could be a lot of fun." -
