Slide 150 Series
A special bike deserves special attention: Our showpiece, the newly developed Slide 150 model, must be the most exciting new piece in the 2013 collection! The big cleaner in the novelty test in the recent edition of Mountainbike will continue the story of success the Slide series has written. For this new development, Bodo Probst came up with a complete hydroformed frame that can deflect the stress better than its predecessors. Characteristic curve, suspension travel and drive influence have also been worked on in cooperation with Fox's developers. Now, we are able to present you with the Slide 150 - a bike that has plenty of reserves in rough terrain thanks to 150 mm suspension travel, X-12 thru axles, direct mount derailleur mount and optimized weight distribution, while exceeding the already impressive climbing skills of its predecessor.
„Developing the Slide 150 has been one of the pivotal tasks in the past two years. The benchmark set by the preceding Slide AM 140 was already very high. That bike took several test victories. Now an evolution had to take its place, combining the excellent climbing characteristics with even more suspension travel. To that end, I was able to draw on new production technologies. Through the use of a complete hydroformed frame and novel calculation methods, I was able to create a bike that outperforms its predecessor in every aspect. The first reviews came with phenomenal marks for performance, which seems to show we've found the right way here at Radon..." (Bodo Probst)
