Shred like there’s no tomorrow: with Charger damping, the Rock Shox Lyric RCT3 suspension fork on our SWOOP 170 8.0 is perfect for long and demanding downhilling.
Highlights of the Swoop 170 8.0
With its black, 35mm-thick stanchion tubes, it’s also a treat to look at. At the rear section, a Rock Shox Vivid Air absorbs your drops. The e*thirteen TRS+ Chainguide holds the chain fast to the crank. The 1×11 drivetrain comes from the dependable and lightweight SRAM GX series.
The Swoop 170 Family
Power your way up the mountain – and then let it rip downhill: that’s what our aluminium super-enduro SWOOP 170 was designed for. Flip chip technology for the geometry adjustment system enables an efficient suspension setup in three different modes. A long wheelbase and 170mm of suspension travel ensure smooth downhill riding and the e*thirteen chainguide keeps the chain in the right place during tough rides. The bike rests on rigid and stable 27.5-inch wheels, which enable precise handling on the trail.
The Swoop 170 Frame
Tour, trail or park: with flip chip technology you can change the SWOOP 170’s geometry in a matter of seconds and adapt the bike perfectly to your route. The modern aluminium frame is equipped with the proven RADON Conehead and its QR 15/X12 boost axle on the fork and rear section make the bike agile and quick. All models are fitted for the integration of an adjustable seat post and for retrofitting with a side swing front derailleur. Internally routed cables keep the frame looking clean.
