RALEIGH SUPER COURSE
$1,070
THE PITCH » A wallet-friendly introduction to the comfort of carbon fiber.
YOUR MONEY BUYS... Last year's higher-end model scaled down for budget-conscious performance. Built on an aluminum main triangle with carbon forks and seatstays, the Super Course eliminates the harsh feel of inexpensive aluminum bikes without the cost of a full-carbon frame. For speed, the rigid TruVativ crank assembly teams with the aluminum frame to produce one efficient power-transfer module, mounted with hill-friendly triple chainrings.
THE RIGHT BIKE FOR YOU? For all the benefits of full-carbon bikes, most vibrations reach your spine through the forks and seatstays. By integrating carbon where it really counts the most, Raleigh delivers a perfect bike for anyone looking to get a little more serious about road riding—or serious riders in search of more comfort. The 20.5-pound Super Course is lively enough for entry-level racing, but it makes for a perfect introduction to the joys of smooth asphalt, with less pain for you and your bank account. 253-395-1100, www.raleighamerica.com
