Radon Swoop 175 26 Frame black blueWith the Radon Swoop 175 frame there are no compromises in performance.
High performance aluminum chassis: Radon Swoop 175 26 Frame in black blueA robust frame, equally designed to withstand long days in the bike park and multi-day Enduro outings with never-ending climbs; a shallow head tube angle, 175mm of travel: Is this still Enduro? We call it Swoop 175 26 Super-Enduro! This bike category allows for efficient uphill pedaling, but does not surrender any ground to heavy Freeride bikes. The Swoop 175 26 is a “can-do-it-all” bike. It craves speed, hugs the turns slow and fast and bails you out when a jump unexpectedly lands you on rough terrain. Its attributes make it the perfect bike for all those riders who like it rough, but want to be able to reach the top using their own legs. Because more often than not, the most challenging descent cannot be reached by shuttle or gondola. The Swoop 175 26 relies on 26” wheels for agility.

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.
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.
Daniele D.Comment:All ok!!!Heinz D.Comment:Bin ein bekennender Anhänger von 26er Rahmen, deswegen kam dieses Angebot wie gerufen. Aufgebaut ist es eine absolute Waffe, verspielt, agil und hart im Nehmen.
