First the Sea Otter Festival, now the Bike Festival in Riva – the stream of exciting news and new products continues! German bike manufacturer Radon presented their new and very light, Slide Carbon 140 trailbike. We’ve got the details for you!

At the heart of the Radon Slide Carbon 140 is a new carbon frame with a four pivot suspension system, weighting only 1890 g. The main goal during the development was to create a lightweight and agile trailbike, says Lars Wiegand, Marketing Manager at Radon. They will offer four or five different builds of the bike, starting at 3.199 €. The top-end model will be around 5000 €. All models will – of course – have dropper seatposts and will be available both with 1-by and 2-by drivetrains. Further details are still to be announced.

Das hier gezeigte Radon Slide Carbon 140 bringt rund 11,4 kg auf die Waage, entspricht aber noch nicht der Serienausstattung.
The pictured Radon Slide Carbon 140 weighs only 11.4 kg, but the spec isn’t final yet, so changes may occur.
Innenverlegte Züge sind mittlerweile Standard, ein Rahmengewicht von 1.890 g bei 140 mm nach wie vor gering.
Internal cable routings are standard these days, but only 1890 g for a 140 mm frame surely isn’t!
