Raleigh Bicycles Honored with Bicycling Magazine 2013 Editors’ Choice Award


KENT, Wash. — As the August issue of Bicycling magazine hits stands, Raleigh Bicycles is honored to take home an Editors’ Choice Award for its men’s Cadent FT2. Voted the “Best Men’s Flat-Bar Road Bike” for 2013, the fitness and commuter-ready Cadent FT2 shined above the competition demonstrating the best combination of the tester’s three main criteria: ride quality, parts, and handling.

“The Cadent FT2 is hands-down a great, user-friendly bike that meshes the qualities of comfort and technology while keeping affordability in mind,” said Chris Speyer, COO at Accell North America. “The Editors’ Choice Award from the cycling experts at Bicycling further confirms that it’s the perfect all-around ride for an assortment of riding conditions.” 

After putting the Cadent FT2 to the test, the Bicycling editorsreported that the bike: “felt smooth, had the sportiest handling, and was fun to take around tight turns on paved lanes or woodchip paths. The bike was stable whether we were cruising at slow speeds or racing to work. The Shimano Alivio 27-speed drivetrain (with a triple crank) has enough range to move you along at any pace- and ensure that you conquer any hills you may encounter.
