As a distribution company, Raleigh will also bring over 30 different parts and accessory brands to the show, providing UK cycle dealers with a comprehensive offering across almost all product categories.

In terms of its new 2013 bikes, Raleigh’s Product Manager, Terry Blackwood said: “It’s no easy task to improve on 125 years of history and heritage but our motto this year has been ‘Because it’s a Raleigh’. We are taking Raleigh back to where it belongs with innovative and reliable products that perform day in, day out.”

Across our Road, Lifestyle, Entry-level MTB, Classic and Children’s bike markets we now have some very competitive and attractive products. Early indications tell us we’ve got that ‘wow factor’ back so we’re looking forward to getting these bikes in front of people at the NEC.”

Members of the public will have the chance to test ride a selection of 2013 bikes on the NEC Cycle Show demo track including the SP COMP, SP RACE, REVENIO 2, REVENIO 3 and the CAPRI. Cycle racing fans will have the chance to see Raleigh’s professional racing team in action at the show.
