Radon Slide Carbon 160 27.5 FrameThe Radon Slide Carbon 27.5 frame leaves a lasting positive impression in every possible way. It's all that the keen enduro rider will ever need - we poured everything we know about carbon frames into this bike.
Carbon Fiber Enduro bike for a wide range: Radon Slide Carbon 160 27.5 Frame in blackglossy redA winner in every discipline: our SLIDE CARBON 160 is the world championship bike of up-and-coming star Raphaela Richter (RADON/Magura Factory Team), distinguished by its multiple test wins and always at the top of the rankings when it comes to value for money. With this lightweight bike you can climb mountains like an all-mountain. Downhill, the pedigree enduro shows its true potential – 160mm of suspension travel overcomes every obstacle. Whether you’re seeking an adrenaline kick on lonely trails or taking the lead in your next race: the SLIDE CARBON 160 is made for you.
Our high-end carbon frame with proven race-geometry combines high rigidity with minimal weight. The result: awesome acceleration, frisky handling and a secure feeling on the trail. RADON’s Conehead head tube and 27.5-inch wheels contribute to the overall quality. Internally routed cables make for clean and tidy optics. For this season we’ve improved the details – but overall, the bike remains the same success story it ever was.

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: 2017
