The Mustang is the perfect companion for the cyclist who enjoys a bit of everything!
The star of our Adventure Range, the Mustang is designed for the real world of getting to work or grabbing some fun at the weekend. A hybrid bike built for speed and agility, the Mustang Elite finds the perfect balance between a road and off road bike allowing you to ride on a wide range of terrains. Take the towpath or the short cut through the woods, deal with the potholes and uneven tarmac of the British roads with ease.
The all new Mustang Sport features a super lightweight Double butted Aluminium frame and tapered headtube with Gravel frame geometry; designed to offer a more relaxed riding position than a traditional road bike without compromising too much on speed. The Gravel-specific carbon fork is lightweight and shock absorbent while the tapered alloy steerer affords precise handling and great tyre clearance.
Tubeless compatible rims make it simple to upgrade to tubeless tyres if you want to be sure that a puncture won’t hold you back on your adventures. The Mustang Elite makes use of SRAM's wide range Apex 1 gears combined with a single chain ring for the ultimate in simplicity. Stopping is handled by the powerful TRP Spyre disc brakes which are regularly reviewed as the best cable actuated disc brake; both pads move making it more powerful for better control and easier to set up than other systems.
We're proud of every product we create. Here are some reviews of this product.

We really liked the Raleigh Mustang Elite when we tested it. It does everything a regular road bike does, but it does it with the added comfort of the big tyres. It's part of Raleigh's three-bike range of gravel/adventure bikes and a great example of the booming category.Click Here For The Full Article
