Description

Raleigh's merit 2 is the traditional road bike's next step, incorporating next generation technology into a snappy road ride. The aluminum frame and fork are nimble and confidence-inspiring. Paired with Weinmann wheels and Kenda's high-quality tires, this is the bike that wants to go up hill, down hill, and everywhere you can ride. Front and rear thru-axles enhance frame stiffness and increase power transfer, meaning you'll get every last watt out of your sprint efforts. And the TRP Spyre disc brakes provide exceptional all-weather stopping power. Total control is right at hand, thanks to Shimano's smooth 18-speed Sora drivetrain. And with a supportive saddle and components from Raleigh, you'll find yourself taking the long way home.
