RADON SLIDE TRAIL 10.0 @ Pinkbike.com
"Selling bikes direct to consumer has become hugely popular in recent years, and with big discounts on offer, it’s easy to see why. Conceived by popular German online retailer Bike Discount, RADON makes a good range of mountain bikes from XC to DH, and sitting perfectly in the middle is the SLIDE TRAIL that we’re focusing on today.
Fully updated since Pinkbike last reviewed it back in 2015, you’re looking at a 29" wheeled bike with 140mm travel matched to 150mm up front, a carbon fiber main frame and a four-bar linkage suspension layout and some high-end equipment on this top of the range model from Fox, SRAM and Schwalbe for the very reasonable price of €3.399. But there are models starting from €2.199, if your wallet doesn’t stretch that far."
PINKBIKE'S TAKE: "If you’re after good bang for your buck, and are in the market for a well equipped and capable trail bike, the RADON SLIDE TRAIL is worth a closer look. It’s an efficient pedalling bike with a lot of pop and playfulness on the descents,[...]. It comes down to your riding style and how you like your bike to behave. It seems Radon is making steady improvements on its bikes with a distinctive appearance, good suspension, reasonably modern geometry and a killer parts package that puts many brands to shame..."
