Expirience with the Radon SWOOP AL 8.0

Radon SWOOP AL 8.0 Review If you want to let it rip in the bike park from time to time, you should scroll down and check the specs, because that's exactly what the SWOOP AL 8.0 was made for. The flat 64,8 degree head tube angle of the Radon Fully gives the rider lots of confidence in challenging terrain. On long tours, the comfortable seating position ensures a relaxed back. For friends of sending it on rowdy trails: the last argument is still the strongest, because the harmonious geometry and the grippy tires cause you to smile from top to bottom in the descent. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 6 years warranty Radon sets the bar high!
