Raleigh Skarn Expert Bike 2016

Raleigh Skarn Expert Bike 2016

Efficient. Practical. Fun.

The Skarn series represents Raleigh's recent efforts to focus a bit more on the dirty side of cycling. With four inches of travel on a 29 inch wheel platform, a stiff and simple single pivot design, and some smart component choices, we expect to see many more of these two wheeled steeds out on the cross country race course and local single track loops. Climb to hills like a small primate who’s just escaped the zoo, celebrate your freedom and independence as you find out where that dirt ribbon finally disappears into the wilderness. Then put on the grin as you flow back to reality, your cooler, and a well earned beverage.

Raleigh Skarn Expert Features

  • Shimano Deore drivetrain is highly durable and a great choice for a variety of riding styles.
  • Carbon Monocoque dual suspension frame with 4 inches of simple and dependable single pivot travel.
  • Rockshox Recon 100mm Fork delivers the right balance between efficiency and travel for XC terrain and race courses.
  • Fox Performance Float DPS rear shock smooths out the race course and maintains control and traction.
  • Shimano BL-M506 hydraulic disc brakes are reliable, smooth and powerful.

Raleigh

Raleigh has been building some of the finest bikes for over 3 centuries. That makes them the longest continuously-operating bicycle manufacturer in the world. Raleigh as a brand has spanned some serious history and we know that doesn’t happen as a result of delivering mediocre product. They create bikes with a purpose and an intent that is relevant to us, the customers, and how we are using and experiencing these mechanical wonders that are bikes. The first Raleigh models rolled out in 1885 England amongst the horses and steam engines of the time which brought increased mobility and freedom to many individuals. Raleigh, today, still develops their product around the idea that bikes are fun, convenient and practical.

Nice XC Bike
Great bike! I really like mine and would not hesitate to buy it again. I own a size large and I am 5'11". It fits perfect.

Pros
- Pedals well while maintaining good plushness for the rough. I only use the climbing switches on pavement or dirt canals that I take to get to my local trail system.
- Plush suspension for a XC bike.
- Great value for carbon (mostly) frame.
- Fox suspension works very well!
- Stock rims are wide at 32mm so the tires spread out nicely.
- Frame feels stiff.
- Internal routing for brakes and DI2. External for cable shifting.

Cons
- Not the lightest carbon bike (27 pounds dead with tubeless and 1x conversion.)
- Pedaling is good, but if you like a very firm feel at the pedals even when the shock is open, this is not your ride. (if you use the climbing mode though, it locks out nicely)
- Not full carbon, chain stay is aluminum.
- Stock wheel set is way heavy. I got 2100 grams on my scale.
- The stock tires, while light (630 grams), are good for groomed courses or easy machine built trails. They suck on the loose, rocky, or chunky sections of trail. In Phoenix, thats almost everything.

For the price, this bike is a sleeper. For XC racing or moderate trail riding, this bike is fast.
