Designed for the racer who doesn’t want to blow their budget, the Carbon Comp sits below the Carbon Race and Carbon Team models and costs £1,399,99.
Weighing in at a claimed 17.9lbs, it boasts a full carbon monocoque frame and carbon race fork, Shimano 105 gearing and brakes, Xero CXR-330 wheelset with Continental Ultra Race folding tyres, and a stem and handlebar combo from FSA.
The Carbon Race comes in at £1,699.99, and the Carbon Team £2,499.99.
The Raleigh name might put some people off because of its association with low-end bikes, but the company is rebuilding its reputation for producing quality race bikes and we look forward to seeing how the Carbon Comp performs. Stay tuned for a full review.
