Description

All the speed and comfort you expect from the Raleigh Cadent...simplified. The Cadent i8 boasts a lightweight butted-aluminum frame that's fast and nimble—perfect for Sunday afternoons along the greenbelt and your Monday morning commute. The large diameter 700c wheels roll fast and smooth on the road while the carbon fork soaks up chatter and bumps. An 8-speed Shimano Alfine internally geared hub offers the range of a traditional drivetrain with unmatched simplicity and low maintenance, so you can ride through a variety of conditions with complete confidence. Powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer solid control on the ride back down, and a great selection of Raleigh components and their plush, supportive seat mean that you're sure to be comfortable cruising through town.

Internal hub gearing

Internal hub gearing is a gearing system built into the rear wheel hub. It allows you to shift at any time, even when not pedaling, like at a stop sign. Because the majority of parts are housed within the hub, the gearing mechanism is protected from weather and grime, and therefore requires almost no maintenance. Plus, with less external parts than a derailleur system, you’ll get consistently smooth, reliable shifts.
