The Raleigh Route 700C Hybrid Bike was designed as a Dual Sport bike to combine the features of a mountain bike with the efficiency of a hybrid. Hit the trails in the morning and ride home through the city in the afternoon. By merging the qualities of mountain and hybrid bikes together, the Route does it all, and does it well. The Route is built for performance with features like a Shimano EZ fire shifting system, alloy-crown suspension fork, alloy V brakes and alloy double-wall rims. All these features paired with the lightweight aluminum frame, lightweight alloy crank and stem, gives you a lightweight performer that can do it all at a great price point.
