Entry Level Road Bike - 2015 Raleigh Revenio 1 REVIEW

2015 Raleigh Revenio 1 - No Sacrifices


Endurance riders demand fast bikes that are comfortable enough to pedal for hours, the Revenio meets those demands.
 
The geometry has been updated with a slackened seat angle that shifts the rider’s center of gravity back and takes some weight off the handlebars. The result is reduced strain on wrists, elbows, neck, and lower back. Less fatigue translates into improved stamina and comfort.
