 Nice edit. Those trails look rad, very reminiscent of Golfie.

 Does anyone else own a RADON? They seem to have decent price/spec. Not to say that they come with I9 on them tho

 Kinda like KHS in America.

 Don't come with I9, usually DT Swiss or Newmann wheels. Granted I'm sponsored by them so this may come across as horse shit, but I think my Swoop 8.0 at 2300 euro's is a bike I'd buy (or could realistically afford), but I am a tight northerner!

 I've had a Radon Swoop for about 2 years (not sponsored!). It's survived Finale Ligure, racing the Fort William DH track for Ski-n'duro, alps trips, enduro races, and recently Jamaica. Home tracks are South Wales, UK. Only changes I've had to make are brakes (Magura MT5 to Saint due to failure of seals in muddy conditions) and gears (SRAM to Shimano). For the price, I think it's been great. Also, the flip chip for geometry is useful if riding mellow tracks or bike-packing. Geo in slack setting is great.

 i have a swoop 10 it is unnatraly good at everything it desroys my carbon stumpjumper, is better climbing and decending than any of the bikes in our bike shop. i chose it over a big brand bike (trek evil kona spesh) as ive ridden all of them and i love it . cant beat the price /spec ratio.

 Is it me, or does it look like the rear of that Radon is stink-bugging? Just not seeing a lot of movement on the suspension on the tech bits of trail. Just an observation.

 Probably over damped like 90% of bikes are for lighter riders.
