Meet the FreeRadical Leap

Our Xtracycle Leap transforms mild-mannered regular bikes into cargo superheroes, able to carry large loads, transport extra passengers, and traverse the globe.

Turn nearly any ordinary bike into an extraordinary bike with this stellar cargo conversion kit.


Something old is new again

Many of you may recall — or may even still ride! — the revolutionary original FreeRadical conversion kit that launched Xtracycle as a company back in 1998. That kit could haul.

The new and improved FreeRadical “Leap” is even tougher, more rigid and more versatile — not to mention sharper looking.

While the original FreeRad could only accommodate 26″ and 700c tires, the Leap can be installed with bikes with 20″, 24″, 26″, 650B, 650B+, 700C, 29er, and 29+ tires, with a max tire width of 3″.

The added bonus is if you are looking to build a cargo eBike now or down the road, there are various eBike conversion kits that can help turn your Leap into a super electric-assist cargo bike.

How it works

The kit essentially bolts into your rear drop-outs, extending your wheel base. The installation clamps mount firmly to your bike’s chainstays near the drivetrain (i.e., the bottom bracket), creating a super-strong connection.

This ensures that your Leap converted bike won’t just feel like a “bike with a conversion kit” on it but more like a solid cargo bike frame.

The Leap accepts a wide range of add-on components for hauling both kids and cargo. You can easily build up your Leap cargo bike to meet your needs whatever they may be.

Leap vs a full cargo bike?

So, how can you tell if you are a good candidate for a Leap conversion kit as opposed to purchasing one of our complete cargo bikes, like the Swoop, Stoker or RFA?

We’re glad you asked. The FreeRad Leap would be a perfect project for you if:

Huge potential in a small package

The FreeRadical and FreeRadical Leap have been used for everything from grocery runs and school drops offs to intercontinental adventures and epic back country camp trips.

No matter how big or small your plans are, the FreeRadical Leap is sure to bring a little extra magic to an old bike — an also to your life.
