2017 promises to become an exciting race season for RADON BIKES. The German bike brand based in Bonn is stepping up its racing program and will be competing with both a DH and XC factory racing team.
RADON BIKES is proud to announce the signing of double World- and World Cup Champion Manon Carpenter on a two-year contract with the RADON Factory DH Team.
The young British rider will pilot the Radon Swoop200 DH bike alongside teammates Johannes Fischbach and Faustin Figaret in the UCI DH World Cup and Crankworx World Series.
Raphaela Richter will complete the team. Under the management of former 4X World Champion Joost Wichman the team has its focus on World Cup podiums and a strong media presence.
For Christopher Stahl, CEO and founder of Radon bikes, the expansion of the brand’s commit- ment in the professional mountainbiking scene is a logical next step in the brand’s overall strat- egy. The factory racing teams will enhance Radon’s presence in mountainbiking and underline the top of the line bikes the company has developed –
“Over the years RADON has showcased their bikes in top rankings of several product tests in the media. A futher commitment in professional sports is the only logical step. The best bikes must be raced, tested and further developed by the best athletes. As an active racecar driver, I know that you need the challenge of professional sports and need the feedback of pro riders to improve the product to the most minor detail. We will use this knowledge not only for our race bikes but it will trickle all the way down to categories such as our E-bikes. In addition pro- fessional sports is a perfect stage to showcase the reputation RADON on an international stage.“
