Product Details

Raleigh Strada 3 2018 Hybrid Bike

Genuine Shimano hydraulic brakes and upgraded EF505/Acera Rapidfire gear shifting make this the most impressive bike in the Strada commuter bike range.

We consider the Raleigh Strada range as the current best-value replacements for our own Revolution bikes (which are not currently available). Here's why.

Upgrades from Raleigh Strada 2

  • Super-reliable hydraulic disc brakes from the world's top manufacturer, Shimano
  • Why hydraulic disc brakes are the best upgrade for most bikes - see our blog
  • Shimano EF505 Rapidfire 3x8 shifters are made to a higher spec (less plastic, more alloy) and to closer tolerances than 3x7 EZ Fire for smoother operation and longer life
  • The rear mech and chainset are similarly upgraded to Shimano Acera level

Same as Raleigh Strada 2

Wheels / Tyres

  • Lighter weight, more cushioning, Clement USH 650b x 42mm tyres, as spec'd to a number of 4-figure bikes
  • The wheels are quick release for lightweight convenience (faster fitting + no need to carry a wheel spanner)
  • Up-to-the-minute 650B alloy wheels built extra strong with double-wall rims and 36 spokes
  • Like a fair few of today's better bicycles, every Raleigh Strada is shod with 42mm wide 650B tyres which offer a perfect balance of speed and comfort for most road / light trail conditions, whether you're sprinting on smooth tarmac or negotiating rutted roads and Sustrans cycle tracks
  • To make them even more perfect, the tyres' reflective sidewalls help get you seen from all directions when shone upon by fellow road users' headlights


  • The 6061 aluminium alloy frame is strong, lightweight and true
  • The aluminium frame's internal gear cable routing creates a cleaner look


  • Lighter weight alloy bars
  • The unthreaded steerer and clamp-on stem are also simpler and lighter weight
  • A stack of spacers enable you to adjust the bar height
  • The bars offer a semi-upright 45˚ riding position, and deliver mountain-like easy-steering control


  • Lighter weight, more shock absorbing CrMo steel forks over high tensile steel
  • The steel fork is lighter than any suspension fork and it will never require maintenance


  • The Shimano 12-32 cassette gives you a wider range of gears
  • The rear cassette hub is intrinsically stronger than one that takes a screw-on freewheel


  • The frame and fork both come with the eyelets and clearance required to fit mudguards and pannier rack
  • The Selle Royal saddle is cushioned and comfortable


We  offer free bike fitting - order any extras such as mudguards with the bike and we will waive our standard fitting charge
