Falcon Radon Mens 29″ Alloy Front Suspension Mountain Bike
The New Falcon Radon 29″ (29er) Mountain Bike has been updated for 2016 and now forms part of a stunning new range of 3 bikes that cover the minefield of wheel sizes currently existing in the mountain bike world- its smaller wheeled cousins are the 27.5″ (650b) wheel Argon and the 26″ wheel Xenon.
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 29″ wheels? the pros of the new bigger wheel size-
Once the 29er wheel is rolling, it rolls fast – every revolution has greater travel- so you will be ahead of the pack if your mates all have 26″ wheel bikes
Larger wheels hit obstacles at a shallower angle, and so they simple roll straight over them – the same way a range rover or a tank gets over the desert better than a scrawny wheeled hatchback. This makes them faster, and also more reassuring offroad
Bigger wheels also means bigger tyres which means a greater contact area and better grip and stability
The Falcon Radon 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.
