After the successful introduction of two Downhill Bike models, Redalp now launches their Freerider. This brand new model, the “Cascadeur FR” was developed for the European Enduro Racing scene. Built on the same frame as the DH bike, it is as robust and reliable as a Redalp Downhill Bike - see article from 2012 here
Redalp sees the different Enduro Championships as the perfect platform to promote their patented chain drive system. With 180mm rear wheel travel on many bikes the rear suspension needs to be blocked to climb in order to avoid squat. Manufacturers attempted to get this problem under control by developing high tech systems, and even electronic devices. On Redalp Bikes, the patented chain link ensures a continuous smooth running of the rear suspension. While climbing, the rear wheel follows the slightest unevenness and guarantees maximum grip. During the descent the rider benefits of the long swingarm and high pivot point which make this bike so fast!
