The all new Criterium models are our best value carbon road bikes ever. Built using Raleighs Performance Blend material the frame is the best balance of stiffness compliance and weight available at this level.
The Shimano 9 Speed Sora groupset is well known for its performance and durability making it the perfect choice for the Criterium. The Sora shifters have the same dual control setup as the top end groupsets and also feature an optical window to show which gear you have selected. Shifting is precise and consistent, right the way through the 9 speed cassette. The Shimano Sora chainset and bottom bracket are stiffer and lighter than a standard square taper chainset. With 50/34t compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence.
Finally, completing the package is the RSP finishing kit: Bars, stem and seatpost with a Raleigh R1 saddle to top it off.
Rest assured that each Raleigh bike is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition. Find out which size fits you by clicking the size chart tab.
