Falcon Xenon Mens 26″ Alloy Front Suspension Mountain Bike
The Brand New Falcon Xenon 26″ Mountain Bike has been created from scratch as part of a stunning new range of 3 bikes that cover the minefield of wheel sizes currently existing in the mountain bike world- its bigger wheeled cousins are the 27.5″ Argon and 29″ wheel Radon
Being part of a new three bike stable makes choosing your next mountain bike easy, they are all the same specification and all the same price, the only decision is now which size wheel do you want to ride? not can i justify the extra £50-£100? just for a bigger wheel size.
why 26″ wheels?
Less wheel means less metal and less weight, always handy for those after a competitive edge, particularly for going up hills or those that enjoy being airborne
Smaller, lighter wheels are more agile and faster to get up to speed on smoother surfaces – although top end speed is lower than the bigger 27.5 and 29″ wheels and 26″ can be a lot more twitchy on rough terrain
The smaller size means that the wheel can be stronger – this is important for downhill riders thrashing wheels down mountain sides- although becoming less of an issue now almost all component supplier has adopted and refined their bigger wheeled offerings
The Falcon Xenon is equipped with Shimano E-Z-fire shifters to power the 24-speed shimano front and rear derailleurs for rapid & reliable changing and are integrated into the alloy brake levers for a simple modular design, no expense has been spared and the Radon also has a Shimano Chainset upfront guaranteeing smooth and reliable power transfer in all conditions. The Shimano alloy brake levers control the front and rear Zoom mechanical disc brakes, which brake onto a 160 mm stainless rotors for superior heat dispersion and performance longevity. The comfortable Falcon branded saddle is connected by a lightweight alloy micro-adjust seat post to allow ample height adjustment.
