• Ready to take the leap of the Xtracycle Leap? 30 October 2015 | View comments

  • The Xtracycle FreeRadical was launched  back in 1998 to rave reviews. A bolt-on extension with the purpose of turning a standard bicycle into a longtail cargo cycle, it went down a treat at the time.

    Over 15 years later, Xtracycle is launching its replacement, the Leap, and here at Practical Cycles, we couldn't be more delighted to announce that we will be stocking this amazing new product in the Spring 2016.

    What is the Xtracycle Leap?

    If it helps, think of the Leap as the FreeRadical’s smarter sibling. After its leading role in helping to create a renewed market for cargo bikes across the world, including here in the UK, Xtracycle is soon to offer you a timely upgrade.

    The Leap converts your bicycle into an Xtracycle longtail cargo bike in the easiest way possible with its four key features;

    1. It’s extremely easy to install. A secure mounting system attaches firmly to the

    chainstays near the bottom bracket and rear dropouts for a speedy installation

    2. The Leap is designed to be strong and torsionally rigid; it won’t break or flex

    under heavy loads, irrespective of speed

    3. It connects to pretty much any adult bicycle even ones with small wheel such as folding bikes

    4. The removable racks make it compatible with most current Xtracycle LT2 and some LT1 accessories

    Although some riders may find it a shame in some ways to have to dispense with their trusty FreeRadicals, the Leap will be of the same quality, if not infinitely better and provide you wiith your cargo transportation needs for the next 15 years!

    With over 20 years' experience, Xtracycle can be counted on to deliver top quality products each and every time - why else do you think we would stock such an extensive range of Xtracycle products right here at Practical Cycles?

    We offer several of the EdgeRunner range of cargo bikes, for example, alongside some of the associated accessories, including cargo bags, U Tubes, Hooptie and mudguard sets.

    We may only be a small business, but we have a wide array of products to get you started with cargo bikes - or to enhance your existing cargo bike if you are a little more seasoned with them. Our main aim is to get more and more people using cargo bikes, so as you might imagine, we are pretty excited about such new and innovative accessories as the Xtracycle Leap.

    The Leap will be released in Spring 2016. Keep your eyes peeled, or subscribe to our mailing list for the latest news of when we will have it in stock.
