Elegant and graceful the Raleigh Classics are designed for those who want to travel in comfort and style, perfectly combining modern components with retro styling.
Available in a range of exclusive colours inspired by the catwalk and, finished with features designed to complement you. The Raleigh Classics are not just bikes they are fashion accessories.
Our designers are constantly researching to make sure the colour selections for the Raleigh Classic range will be on trend. They attend fashion shows; carry out colour research using industry experts and of course, they are serious shoppers.
It is important that once the colours have been chosen, the frame and fork paint colours have the same depth and richness of colour. So, we matched our choices to nail varnish, the nail varnish pots were carefully packaged and sent to the paint factory. To begin with the paint factory hand mixed small amounts, applied the new colours to short lengths of tube and sent the tubes back to Raleigh UK HQ for approval. A few little tweaks to follow and they successfully matched the new colours perfectly. Each selected colour was then given a unique colour code by the paint factory, resulting in our own exclusive paint colours, created just for you.
The exclusive frame colours have been extended to the chain cover, rear carrier and mudguards so these functional parts, designed for keeping you and your clothes clean are colour matched to rest of your bike.
The graphic design is soft and subtle using a tone on tone technique to compliment the frame colour, applied underneath a clear top coat to prevent damage.The Raleigh classic bikes are ideal for riding on paths, trails or roads. The twin tube frame is manufactured with relaxed geometry and swept back handlebars allowing you to have a comfortable upright riding position, enabling you to be more aware of your surroundings so you can enjoy riding your new bike safely and with confidence. The low number of gears we have specified are simple, easy to use and sufficient for the style of riding the Raleigh classic bikes are designed for.
The finishing touches were given just as much thought and detail as the frame design and part specification. The Women's comfort saddle is an obvious necessity which we fit on a lightweight aluminium seat post, allowing you to adjust your saddle either forwards or backwards to enhance your riding experience. This is colour co-ordinated with the soft trekking grips and rear carrier straps. The straps fitted to the rear carrier give you the option to add a stylish rear pannier bag as an alternative to carrying a rucksack. The cream tyres not only compliment the bike colour and finishing kit but have a tread pattern suitable for roads, paths and trails.
Finally... each bike is fitted with an aluminium prop stand; a useful accessory to stand your bike up keeping it looking pristine, a retro ding dong bell for safety, added style and fun.
