Don't call it a comeback! After disappearing from the German scene for a minute, Radio Bikes rider Leon Hoppe is back with a new video that proves he's still capable of throwing down hammers. Check it!
The best of the best! The Quartz is our x2 world championship winning super-lightweight alloy frame with no details spared. We took this frame and draped it in only the very best components creating a full PRO build that anyone would be jealous to own. You’ll find our Solar Carbon fork, Oxygen Tires, Argon Rims, Turbine Hubs and even our new Hydraulic disc brake kit on this masterpiece of a bike. Ready for the track and the podium, we hope you can keep up with the speed that this machine can put out!

How many races have you done on your Radio bike so far? Julian Schmidt: Due to this crazy year just the National Champs and one Euro Cup weekend in Verona. Before that we organised two training races to somewhat make up for the lack of races.
Have you missed riding your bike during the Covid-19 situation?
Radio's new super lightweight NEON PRO handlebars are super lightweight, they use a special type of 13 butted chromoly tubing which makes them some of the lightest bars on the market and feature a unique externally butted cross tube. They are available in a wide range of sizes including taller options like 8.5” and 9” rise. The NEON PRO bars are lightweight, super strong and perfect for riders of all sizes!

The wait is over! Radio's highly anticipated solar Carbon Fiber frame is here… designed and developed in Cologne, Germany over a two-year period, the solar is manufactured from the highest quality Torayca carbon and is incredibly unique with its 100% monocoque 1pc construction. By using a mono-construction compared to a 2/3pc construction which most other brands use, we were able to make the frame even stiffer and stronger and create no weak or fatigue points.
The solar frame is laboratory tested and proven to be insanely stiff and lightweight especially under high impact and stress tests. The internal cable routing allows for a super clean and stealthy setup. Tested by the Radio Raceline team the past x2 seasons and now the frame of choice for many of today’s top
Tires are an important pick when you race BMX. Over the years the knobby tires have gone as the tracks are now built ultra smooth with tarmac turns, and wooden or concrete starting hills. Minimum rolling resistence and maximum grip are still the key elements. Radio offers newly designed rubber that deserves looking into. Today we also present the rims that Radio developed together with their team riders. Read on to see what's new from Radio:
The Radio rims are very special, they are super light and almost all tubeless ready. They are all our own design also, no rebranding or open models here. We tested them all for 2 years with the team. In that time no one has broken them, which is are for such light rims.
