RADIO BIKES enters the 2018 season on the back of a hugely progressive year. 2017 saw the brand grow to new heights, with a strong team of riders spanning the globe and covering just about every style of riding we have never felt more awesome as a brand. We spent the past year connecting with shops and distributors around the world, carefully listening to their feedback and as a result perfecting our line of bikes to ensure that the 2018 Radio Bike range is really an incredible offering of bikes that don’t have to break the bank.

We kick off the 2018 line with the DICE, the perfect first step into the world of BMX. The DICE is available in three wheel sizes (16”, 18” and 20”) including a DICE 20” FS version with a front brake and a SALT rotor setup, ensuring that your first BMX bike fits like a glove. New for 2018 is the updated SAIKO 20 complete. Now with a lower standover frame and 8.25” handlebar because we wanted to create a more agile 20” bike than anything else we currently offer. Perfect for riders that are too small for a regular 20” bike or want a bike that’s easier to throw around and learn tricks on at the skate park.

For 2018, we feel that we have our most diverse range of bikes yet. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a line of bikes that offers the variety of styles, geometry, colors, components, and finishes as the 2018 Radio Bikes collection. The DARKO is back in both 20.5” and 21” toptube sizes in a crazy neon yellow option as well as a stealthy matt black. The fully-bread park setup Astron has two new mind-melting colourways and a Salt AM rotor to make you standout on the deck of the ramp.

Sometimes, small wheels just don’t cut it anymore, with the success of our full line of 26” dirt jump bikes 2018 sees the addition of two new big-wheeled urban shredding machines. The CEPTOR 26” andDIVIDE 700c takes our ‘BMX roots’ and applies them to bigger wheels - creating bikes which will take you from A to B with speed and style, but also allow you to have a lot of fun on the way to your destination.

Every year our improvements and modifications are realized and every year we sit back and feel great about what we’ve achieved. This year is no different.

The full range will be available from Radio dealer's worldwide over the next few weeks. For more information on the availability of our 2018 bikes,  please contact your local Radio Bikes dealer.

Be sure to head over to the product pages on the website and check the bikes out in all their glory, and take a read through our 2018 catalogue which is now ONLINE. Click the image below to be taken to the catalog.

Couldn't be more proud of our guys Leon Hoppe and Justin Dowell who took home 2nd in Street and 3rd in Park at Simple Session #SummerSession in Riga, Latvia this weekend. You can watch a full rep,y of the contest via the link HERE.

Here's your first look at Brian Fox's new signature "FOX" frame. We worked very closely with Brian on a frame which could handle his explosive, all out riding style, and function as the perfect all round setup cable of just about anything you could throw at it.

Available in both a 20.6” or a 21.1” version, both frames have proportional geometry allowing smaller and bigger riders (like Brian) to benefit from geometry that caters to them perfectly. Brian can't wait to get his hands on the first sample you see here, expect to see the final version available later this year from BMX shops worldwide.

Today we welcome international park killer Jack Clark to the Radio Bikes team. There’s no denying Jack’s domination of the worldwide contest scene over the past couple of years. Despite only being 22 years old, Jack has a long list of big contest victories to his name, rivaling riders 10 years his senior. Being on the podium at almost every contest he’s entered over the current year, Jack’s flawless and progressive riding has been making waves all over the world.

What really made Jack's addition to the team a no brainer was how well he already fits with the rest of the Radio team. With Jack already being close friends and traveling constantly with Brian Fox, Kenneth Tancre and most of the other guys, adding Jack to the team felt more like adding that final missing piece to the puzzle more than anything else.

Jack is already out in Latvia right now with Radio Bikes team mate Brian Fox at the Ghetto Games contest, and after that he’ll be heading to the USA for the Mongoose Jam, and then back home to the UK for the Battle Of Hastings contest and to work on his first Radio video project. Everyone at Radio is buzzing to have Jack part of the team and can’t wait to work together on what is already shaping up to be a very bright future together. Expect to see much more from Jack over the next few months as well as more info on Jack's signature line of Radio products which will be available early 2018.

Welcome to the team, Jack!

Straight after the PRO Freestyle contest in The Hague, we headed East, to the internationally renowned city of Rotterdam for 4 days of some of Europe's finest street spots. Despite battling the weather, the spots, and injuries, our two German street machines Leon Hoppe and Robin Kachfi came away with one hell of a banger of a video which we could not be more stoked to drop today. Big thanks to all of the guys at Hatje Distribution for their support with this trip,

The Radio Bikes team threw down this weekend LIVE on US TV at the Nitro World Games in Salt Lake City. Proving that hard work and pure determination pays off, Brian Fox came away with 3rd place in BMX Triples and $10,000 in his back pocket as well as driving home in a Polaris Slingshot for his award as Athlete of the contest.

Jacob Bailey rose to the occasion and battled the huge 45ft "Giganta Ramp" and came home with a well deserved 5th place in Best Trick, and landing his very first 1080 Frontflip / Corked 1440.

You can watch the boys journey over the weekend in a new 3 part video series in association with Radio Bikes which is now LIVE on Youtube, filmed and produced by Andrew Knight / Elevated Perspective.

 

We spent a day riding some of the best parks in Holland with Brian Fox, Kenneth Tancre, Leon Hoppe, Levi Weidmann and Robin Kachfi before the Pro Freestyle last month and here are the results.
