2016 Raleigh Circa 1 Gents Aluminium Hybrid Bike

New for 2016 is Raleigh's Circa range of modern urban hybrids. There are 3 models in the range all on redesigned aluminium frames for strength, comfort and reduced weight. All models have top quality Shimano gear components to give you a super smooth, trouble free ride. The Circas are built with comfort in mind, swept back handlebars allowing for a more relaxed, upright riding position, ergonomic comfort saddles and grips to look after your important contact points. The relaxed frame geometry and thoughtful combination of components make the Circa a great choice for road and trail.

The Circa 1 is the entry level bike in the Circa range and comes naked (without mudguards and rack) but has all neccessary mounts if you want to fit some later. A 21 speed Shimano transmission gives you a huge range of gears to zoom along on the flat or climb the hills. Gear selection is as simple as pushing a button with the Shimano EZ fire shifters. The V type brakes are lightweight aluminium and offer superbe stopping power in all conditions. Lightweight aluminium wheels are fitted with medium width trekking tyres so you can clock up the miles on the road or get a grip on the trails.
