The Radon Swoop 170 8.0 is a 170mm travel 27.5 Enduro bike. Made by German direct sale company Radon, the Swoop has won a host of prestigious awards for it's enduro skills.
It has a Rockshox Lyric RCT3 fork, with 170mm travel. You can adjust the slackness of the fork from 65.8 degrees to 64.8 degrees.
The rear shock is a Rockshox Vivid air. It has an e*thirteen chain guide and a Rockshox Reverb dropper post. The drive train is Sram GX 1x11.
The 8.0 is in the middle of specifications; above the 7.0, and one below the 9.0. Upgrades include the drive train (Shimano on the 7.0), and Rockshox Yari.
The price is difficult to be precise about, as it's in 2799 Euros. That seems to be somewhere around £2500. Given the competition, it is extraordinarily good value.
