Radon Slide Carbon 140 27.5 FrameThe Radon Slide Carbon 27.5 frame leaves a lasting positive impression in every possible way. It's all that the keen trail rider will ever need - we poured everything we know about carbon frames into this bike.
Carbon Fiber Trail bike for a wide range: Radon Slide Carbon 140 27.5 Frame in grey blue limeYou’ll find everything here you could wish for in a complete trail bike: lightweight, full carbon frame with 140mm travel, fast rolling 27.5 inch wheels, excellent climbing characteristics, frisky handling and the reserves needed for tight trails. Not for nothing was the SLIDE CARBON 140 presented with the "Design & Innovation Award 2016".
A 1,880 g frame (excluding damper) and race-tested geometry turn our SLIDE CARBON 140 into a rocket. The RADON Conehead, PressFit bottom bracket and X12 thru axle at the rear make the bike as light as it is rigid. With its distinctively shaped frame and clean internally routed cables, the trail bike has plenty to offer visually. The frames on all four models are equipped to integrate an adjustable seatpost and retrofitting of a Side-Swing derailleur.

TechnologiesAdaptable X12 Hanger
We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
Integrated Cable Routing
Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
Integrated Post Mount
The post mount rear brake system is found on all carbon fiber frames and top aluminum full suspension models. Two bolts and the IS adpater arent needed anymore, and fewer parts means less weight. In this case we save 30 grams. This may not sound a lot. But there's potential to save weight in every detail.
Press Fit BB
With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows us to build a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
This steerer tube design is stiffer than a conventional straight steerer and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid. At the same time weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube.
X12 Through Axle
In this system, a cone is used to form a play-free connection. It is only necessary to tighten the axle from one side. The position of the wheel is done by an insert in the right-hand dropout which is secured by a bolt. The main advantages of the Syntace system are quick and simple changing of the wheel, reliable position of the brake disc and higher stiffness of the rear of the bike. This allows the assembly to be made lighter than a conventional through-axle.
Dropper seat posts are getting more and more widespread, but to integrate them optimally in the frame, they have to be factory fitted. With the Stealth Ready frames, it is possible to build in a dropper seat post with internally routed cables, which besides the clean look, helps prevent any cables getting jammed. The exit of the cable on the frame if not required will be sealed with a cover for protection.Model year: 2017Model year: 2017Model year: 2017
