Continuing their involvement with cyclocross, Raleigh was showing off the new RX W Elite. Meant as the lightest possible bike for women’s racing, the RX W uses cantilever brakes and quick release axles on a carbon frame with true women’s geometry. This bike is meant for racing and the price tag of $2750 should keep it attainable for many.
Along the same lines, the new RXS gets the same thru axle upgrades along with improved wheels and tires. Now tubeless ready with wider rims and tubeless tires, the $1500 belt drive single speed is looking like a killer bike for your 1×1 pursuits.
