Now in its third year, RXS switches from belt drive to chain, though the frame still has a splitter so you can run a belt if you want. (As North America's premier shop for belt drive, you've come to the right place for that. Conversion to belt drive will run $300, and 50/24 or 50/22 gearing is recommended. Get in touch for details. You'll shave about 11 oz by converting to belt drive. (We measured a 58cm RXS with 50/22 Gates components at 19.6 lbs., sans pedals.)
Better in the mud, quieter over the chatter, and lighter on top of it all, singlespeed 'cross simply rules. No derailleurs to break or clog up with mud. It's just you, your legs, and the course.
Raleigh knows this, that's why their RXS exists. For this very ethos, the tough, light aluminum frame is powered by a clean, efficient single-speed drivetrain. A full carbon thru axle fork up front handles bumps even while maximizing stiffness at the hub so you can corner and carve your way to the finish line. It rolls on Weinmann wheels wrapped in Clement MXP tires for the ultimate in control and durability.
As the course thaws and the mud rises from the snow and ice, control is yours with TRP's Hylex hydraulic discs. And with a host of Raleigh components, you know the RXS is ready to be your go-to for years to come.
