I think the catalog was perhaps deliberately vague to alloy flexibility in the sourcing. Of course, even when Raleigh specified a specific component in the catalog, they didn't hesitate to substitute it in reality.

That's not too helpful, unfortunately.

"Sprint" is a generic British term for a tubular rim. They're all "alloy."
