The Mountainbike 29-er

Radon Skeen 10.0

Marathon Fully.

The modern frame is made from 7005 aluminium-alloy and is equipped with the Radon Conehead for tapered fork shafts. The cables are routed internally and the frame has a press-fit bottom bracket. The set-up requires QR15 axles in the front and X12 thru axles in the back. The swingarm linkage is made of carbon fibre. 

It’s the only bike in the Skeen family that is equipped with the Sram X.0 group. The drivetrain functions flawlessly, gear changes are clearly defined and executed efficiently within fractions of a second. The front of the bike features a Fox 32 Float CTD Fit. Its Kashima Coated tubes make for extremely sensitive response. The fork partners up with the Fox Float CTD rear shock, also Kashima Coated, a combination that makes for a flush and smooth ride on any terrain. Both dampers can be locked out remotely from the handlebars. Also above average are the all-new 2015 Avid Guide RS 4-piston calliper brakes – a convincing combination of fierce brake power and perfect controllability. The Mavic Crossmax SL wheelset completes the Skeen 29 10.0 set-up, converting it into a rapid-fast and precise weapon on two wheels – perfected for marathon performance.

Total weight of the bike is now 12.6 kg.
