German mail-order specialists Radon hit the price point for gravel adventure with its new Radon Regard line. This is the first gravel bike for Radon, though they have mixed it up for years in E-bikes, mountain, and road categories.
What is it? Radon Regard 10.0
The new Radon Regard 10.0 arrives in an alloy frameset with a solid build proven in the gravel marketspace. The Regard (all models) comes with a full carbon fork and a sculpted alloy frame with 12mm x 100mm front and 12mm x 142mm rear thru-axles, partial internal cable routing, and enough room to clear up to 45mm tires.
From the looks of the Radon site, the new Regard 10.0 is the top offering in the Regard category, rounding out more do-it-all gravel and commuting builds. The Regard comes with three offerings; Regard 8.0 FE ($1,200), Regard 9.0 FE ($1350), and Regard 10.0 ($1,594).
The full Radon Regard line
The Regard 8.0 FE is the entry-level model in the Radon gravel category. The abbreviation FE means “fully equipped” because the entry-level model arrives with all the equipment needed to commute and explore. The equipment list is vast including; mudguards, luggage rack, Büchel lighting system, and Shimano GRX 400 2X 10 groupset.
The Regard 9.0 FE also comes fully equipped, like the 8.0 FE but the drive train sees an upgrade to the Shimano GRX 600, 2X11 groupset, gaining an extra two gears and some durability. The build looks to offer a dependable and performance platform for commuting or extended overnight adventures.
The Regard 10.0 ditches the fully-equipped naming convention and focuses on gravel and all-road performance. The Radon Regard 10.0 arrives with a complete Shimano GRX 810 1X11 groupset, making the bike an all-rounder and a good companion for fast gravel tours.
The new Radon 10.0 grave machine arrives with 40mm Continental Terra Speed tires, Mavic Allroad Black Disc wheels, and a GRX 1X 40T, with an 11-42 cassette to cover all the climbing/descending needs.
