Raleigh Militis Review

Since Raleigh has been around for nearly a century and a half, the Militis range certainly had some big shoes to fill. We took these bikes out for review to see if they held up to the bicycle giant’s reputation, and they delivered on speed, comfort, and efficiency!

Each model has light weight, coming in at around 18 lb for the triple butted aluminum, and around a stunning 15 lb for the full carbon pro model! We certainly felt the difference on the ride. The geometry is well suited for racing, with a very classic orientation going for these bikes.

The downhill rides were perfect thanks to the high level of responsiveness. The SRAM componentry made for a smooth and comfortable ride throughout our review, and the only thing we could possibly complain about is the every so slightly subpar vibration damping. Other than that, a near perfect bike range for the price!

The Verdict

Overall, a great bike for getting into racing or using for practicing; also excellent for commuting or leisure.
