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
The FlightDeck is made out of 100% post-consumer high density polyethylene (HDPE), machined in the USA. FlightDeck is abrasion resistant, UV-resistant, and easy to clean. Designed specifically to accept up to 2 Yepp child seats without adapter, or 2 MiniMagic Carpets for kids ages 4 and up.
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.
OPTIONAL FREIGHT UPGRADES
Silver FreeRadical frame with red and white decals. Silver Anodized aluminum racks. Black FlightDeck, Black X1 Bags with reflective silkscreen.
Rated for up to 2 toddlers in child-seats or up to 2 kids within Hooptie. EdgeRunner has a 350 lb overall cargo capacity.
