Don’t be shy! At this year’s NEC Cycle Show not only will you be able to get up close and personal with Raleigh road, electric, city and kids bikes but you’ll also be able to saddle up and ride a Raleigh on the Cycle Show test track. Touch, feel, ride and experience the best.
From Thursday September 25th until Sunday September 28th Raleigh will have its 2015 range on display at stand D41 at the UK’s biggest cycle show.
In front of 25,000+ consumers at the Cycle Show, Raleigh will present its broadest and best quality range yet.
The highly rated Road, Electric, City and Kids bikes will be on display at stand D41 and selected models will be available for demo rides on the Cycle Show test tracks.
The first two days of the show (Thursday and Friday) will give invited guests the chance to listen to presentations about the development of Raleigh’s bicycle (10am and 1pm) and accessories (11am and 2pm) lines, plus its Cyclelife franchise (12pm and 3pm).
On the start grid
And on the Sunday Raleigh’s professional riders and sponsored athletes Matthieu Boulo, Jake Poole and Phil Roach will be in action on the cyclocross circuit, testing out the new RX cyclocross models.
What’s new for 2015?
Read on for more about the bikes on display:
Raleigh’s 2015 road range caters for practically every major road cycling discipline, from elite performance to multi-day tours, with a focus on prestigious, modern British design right across the board.
Under the road category are the Militis performance, Revenio endurance, Maverick touring and RX cyclocross bikes, which are doing wonders for changing preconceptions about what a Raleigh bike is.
Geoff Giddings, Raleigh Marketing Director: “The 2015 range is our broadest and best quality range yet. Without doubt this is most exciting range we’ve produced. It’s an amalgamation of our hobbies, our pastimes and our pleasures. And we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved.”

Joining the top of the range Motus electric bike are the new Forge and Captus electric bikes, making their debut at the show.
With motor technology from Bosch and JD the new Forge and Captus electric bikes are set to retail at £1250 and £1750.
If you’ve never experienced electric bike power we highly recommend you head over to the test track and ask for the Raleigh electric bikes. We’ve not yet seen someone try an electric bike without coming back smiling!

After hugely positive responses to Raleigh’s 2014 Strada street range the models continue into 2015 with their SRAM technology.
We’ll have the Strada 8 with its SRAM G8 internal hub gears and the Strada 4 with its SRAM Automatix 2-speed hub gear and belt drive on display, showing you hassle-free alternatives for city biking.
We’ll also have the unique Chloe and Wayfarer cruiser style bikes and newly designed Pioneer and Classic ranges.

The lightweight performance-orientated bikes are suited to both road and off-road, dirt-track, grass-track or tarmac-track racing and are sized for kids from ages 3 (14″ wheel) to 11 (26″ wheel).
Aluminium triple butted frames (20″ – 26″ models) with 4130 chromoly rigid forks and performance components are perfect for aspiring junior cycle club riders.
Jayne Bakes, Raleigh Kids Bikes Product Manager, “We’ve taken our time with the new performance models to make sure they’re absolutely on the money. We believe in quality and reliability and that’s just what parents can expect with our 2015 range. They’ve been designed for kids who want to progress and take their riding to the next level, and that can only come from a technologically advanced bike.”
As well as being available to see at stand D41, twelve of Raleigh’s 2015 kids bikes will be available for test rides on the test track at this year’s NEC Cycle Show. The bikes are suitable for children aged 3 to 9 (14″ to 24″).
