FREERADICAL STANDARD FEATURES

 

100% CHROMOLY STEEL FREERADICAL FRAME

As they say, in certain bike shops, “steel is real.”  We agree.  That's why all our bike frames and the FreeRadical are made of Chromoly - strong but supple, light yet stiff.  Eminently repairable if you plan to take the path less traveled.

ALLOY RACKS ADD STIFFNESS, NOT HEFT

To achieve the alchemy of only 12.5 additional pounds of bike weight, but 350 lbs of carrying capacity, we select the right material for the job.  Our racks are made of 6061 aircraft aluminum for their stiffness but light-weight.

FLIGHT DECK BUILT FOR YOUR BACK SEAT DRIVERS

WHATCHAMACOLLARS ADD SAFETY & SECURITY

These clever little clamps hold the racks into your LongTail compatible frame, reducing sway and adding some extra security for your precious cargo on deck.  


X1 PACKAGE INCLUDES

CARRY ALL THINGS GREAT AND SMALL

Serving as protective wheel-skirts for passengers, X1 bags offer tons of carrying capacity while keeping cargo easy to access when kids are aboard.  Included U-lock and Jacket pockets optimal for small stuff.  FreeLoader flap swallows virtually any load you could think to bike.


OPTIONAL FAMILY ACCESSORIES

A note about FreeRads and families.   The Xtracycle FreeRadical was developed more than  15 years ago primarily as a tool to carry stuff - items like kayaks, surfboards, guitars and firewood.  Over time, our customers showed us how useful the FreeRadical was for carrying arguably more precious cargo - kids, and even pets.  Today, we make a full line of fantastic family bikes.  The FreeRadical, true to it's name, lives on as a tool for freedom - offering a potentially radical change to your bicycle, and in some cases your life.  Based on user feedback, we recommend that the FreeRadical be used by the average consumer to carry 1 kid.  Some consumers who are experienced cyclists may carry more than that.   Got more kids?  Want the safest option possible?  Consider our complete bikes that will offer you the low center of gravity and safe and stable ride handling you expect.
