Developed with the input of professional road racing cyclists from the Volksbank team, and handcrafted by Mauro Sannino, a frame building legend with over 30 years experience, the new ‘CCT Pro’ offers a full blooded, full carbon monocoque race frame with uncompromising stiffness where it counts, and subtle fast rolling performance with amazing shock absorbing properties. All of which, in the right combination offer the most responsive and rider focused experience.

OPTIM MUM POWER TRANSFER The ‘Biometric Bow’ system, has a long tradition at Corratec. The sloping continuous dual top tube makes the front and rear triangles of the frame smaller, which is arguably the most uncompromising way of creating stiffness. It positively screams “ uphill… uphill!” . With the exposed seatpost concept this performance design also meets the comfort requirements of even the most aggressive rider, offering the perfect amount of comfort in TH[LYPHSÅL_



TRUE LINEAR SUSPENSIO ON The unique ‘2circle’ suspension design offers a truly linear suspension action, where by the motion of the rear suspension unit maintains a linear force upon the rear shock unit, producing a smooth linear damping and spring action from the rear shock. The result is a smooth action throughout the travel of the rear suspension with no ramping effect. The linear force upon the rear suspension also greatly extends the life of the rear shock by not introducing any lateral force upon the stanchion as it moves through the shock travel.

FOLLOWING ON FROM a very successful 2008 launch of our road bikes, the new 2009 AVANTI range is more extensive. Using our own designed race proven carbon frame and fork the Cycling Plus award winning Race model now gets a new livery and an upgrade to the Ultegra SL groupset. The range now tops out with the new Team model fitted with the lightweight Sram Red groupset and Mavic Ksyrium Equipe wheels and for the budding time triallists and triathletes our Carbon Team TT model will make you go places FAST.

The new Raleigh Performance Division has been created to deliver the very best home grown bikes from MTrax and Avanti. Drawing on our teams engineering and design expertise that dates back to the famous 70’s TI Raleigh Team and through to Team Raleigh who dominated the emerging mountain bike cross country and downhill scene of the 90’s, where Raleigh led the way in frame materials, design and manufacturing techniques.

MTrax 5.0 Full Carbon frame with SRAM XO groupset

For the Next Generation TO SUPPORT and gain exposure for the Avanti and MTrax ranges we have launched our very own Raleigh Avanti Racing Team supported by Raleigh and all its accessory partners. Five riders have already signed up, with a current National MTB champion among them. The team’s unique feature is that it will be made up of riders who work in the shops that are stocking this range of products. Riders will be using the Avanti Carbon Team or Race models and, off-road, the MTrax 5.0.

AVID MOUNTAIN BIKERS will remember how MTrax once dominated the UK mountain bike scene under the pedal power of legends such as David Baker, Barrie Clarke, and Adrian Timmis. MTrax steps back into the limelight with 5 new hardtail models designed specifically for trail centre riding, and the latest trend of Enduro events. Ranging from £550 to £2000, highlights include our top-of-the-range HT5.0 featuring a UK designed and custom built carbon chassis that’s as at home trail riding as it is racing Enduro events and our custom built 6061 hydroformed aluminium chassis with integrated carbon seatstays, a lightweight yet resilient off-road performer. Groupsets are from Sram featuring X-5 to X-O, with FSA chainsets and Rockshox suspension.
