ALL New 2014 Raleigh Cyclocross Bikes (Women's Specific)


2014 Raleigh Cyclocross Bikes RXC Pro Disc, RXC Disc, RX 2.0 and RX 1.0 Women's Specific

 Lighter. Faster. Higher Performance. These 2014 Cyclocross bikes were debuted at Sea Otter Classic, showing off some significant changes to the returning models. All of the models are at least a half a pound lighter than last year's version.




"There really isn't a single element of our CX bikes that we didn't review and think through about how we can improve the product. Wheels, parts, saddles, and frames all went through significant changes, which is resulting in huge improvements on an already solid line," said Chris Speyer, COO of Accell North America.

Raleigh's carbon offerings are all disc brake models. The Pro model comes with Ultegra Di2, ENVE's CX Disc fork, and now features a bright blue color scheme, while the RXC Disc stays black and comes with Raleigh's own disc fork.

The lower end models get alloy frames that are the lightest and highest performance cyclocross frames that Raleigh has made to date.
