Go ahead and tick the boxes: Light? Agile? Eye-wateringly fast? Ready for any road, regardless of conditions? Check, check, check, and check! You must be riding Raleigh's Merit Elite! The carbon frame and fork ensure a lightweight platform that is stiff and responsive while damping road chatter. Front and rear thru-axles keep you on your line through high speed descents and dirt roads. Weinmann rims and 32mm-wide Clement tires offer a fast yet forgiving ride. Hydraulic Shimano Ultegra disc brakes scrub speed going into the turns and ensure that you retain total control in all conditions, while the matching Ultegra drivetrain offers buttery smooth shifting and a huge gear range. Planning on some long days in the saddle? You're going to love Raleigh's aero ergo handlebar, anti-shock stem and seatpost, and supportive saddle—a setup that will leave you feeling fresh at the end of your ride.
What's so great about Raleigh's Roker Comp? Long, undulating gravel tracks heading off to the horizon, cresting hills and diving into hidden valleys, but the bike—and your legs—keep pushing for just a few more miles. The Roker offers proven gravel-crushing adventure geometry, a feathery carbon frame and fork, front and rear thru-axles for precise steering and power transfer, and a whole lot of get up and go. Tubeless-ready Weinmann rims and Clement's X'Plor MSO gravel tires are a combo that makes short work of even the nastiest B roads, and a Rival 1 x 11-speed drivetrain from SRAM has the range and reliability that you need when you're intent on riding right off the edge of the map. Raleigh's own components grace the Roker Comp, along with a sleek Raleigh saddle, so wherever the path leads, you're ready to ride.
Question: what do you call a trail-slaying beast with a hunger for rocks, roots, dirt and speed? Answer: Raleigh's Skarn Pro. A light aluminum/carbon frame adorned with a Fox Performance Elite shock and paired with a Fox 32 Float Performance fork delivers 100mm of plush travel. With that much balanced, plush suspension smoothing out the trails, it's hard to believe it could get any better, but the Skarn has big 29-inch wheels wrapped in Clement tires to help you go even faster with even more control. Okay, so the legendary speed's great, but you'll need to slow it down to human speeds at some point, so the Skarn's got super-reliable Shimano XT disc brakes to modulate your gnar. And the Shimano XT drivetrain components? They're even better than you've heard. Top this storied bike off with a host of FSA components for durability and you've got a rig ready for its place in the history books.
