Radon Render 10.0 – E-Bike Fully
Highlights of the Render 10.0
By popular demand we have changed the chassis to Fox components: from now on the Fox 36 from the Factory Series, newly introduced for model year 2021, works with FIT4 cartridges. Together with the Fox Float DPX2 Factory it offers incredible performance on your favorite trails. The heart of the RENDER remains the powerful Bosch Performance CX engine, which since the latest update offers full 85Nm and 340% support – with 4 riding modes from eco to turbo you will always find the right support in every terrain. The outstandingly tuned eMTB mode stands out with its intuitive support in every riding situation. The perfectly integrated Powertube battery with 625Wh always has enough capacity even on longer trips.
For the circuit we rely on a mix of SRAM’s X01 and GX Eagle series. The new GX Eagle Lunar XG-1275 cassette with 10-52 teeth now offers with an incredible 520% more gear range than ever before. On the light DT Swiss H1700 wheelset, we are relying on the brand new Schwalbe combination for the coming season, consisting of Magic Mary at the front and Big Betty at the rear. Both tires come in the soft Addix-Soft compound and new Super Trail carcass. The MT5 brakes from Magura with 4 pistons and large 203mm MDR-C discs front and rear provides for instant brake down. The high quality package is completed by the Race Face Turbine R series cockpit, SDG Tellis dropper-post and SDG Thrice grips. The RENDER 10.0 – can you resist?
The Render Family
RENDER is the latest horse in the RADON stable and it boasts high HP and continuous output. The new top-of-the-class has Bosch’s latest and most powerful engine, the performance line CX with its 85 Nm torque and maximum support of 340%. And this also lasts really long, because the RENDER downtube houses the large Powertube battery with a capacity of 625 Wh. This is beautifully integrated into the downtube, which also holds all the cables for the shifting system and the variable seatpost in a rail system. The front frame is made of carbon and is uniquely shaped with its wing-like connection of the top-tube and downtube, which also holds the shocks. The 150 mm range of spring at the front and 140 mm at the tail, together with the 29” wheels ensure enormously smooth running and safety, short chainstays and sophisticated geometry keep RENDER very agile and manoeuvrable. The central seat position allows plenty of control over the bike and invites you to go on epic tours. RENDER your ride.
The Render Frame
The RENDER frame is just as much a visual delight as a home for all kinds of technical refinements. For example, the carbon front frame has a connecting bridge between the top tube and downtube, which as a design element is reminiscent of a wing and technically increases rigidity and at the same time acts as a holder for the shock. The shock extension on the other side also acts at the same time as part of the rocker and thus delivers the unique kinematics and also contributes to the very high stability of the chainstays. The 625 Wh battery sits integrated into the downtube in a cartridge, which guarantees the seat stays steady and also guides the internally laid cables laterally and thus ensures order and a lack of rattling. A removable plastic cap seals the downtube and makes it possible to remove the battery when necessary. This is not necessary for charging however, because the frame possesses an external charging socket in the seat tube. Built into the headset is the block lock, an arrangement that prevents the fork from smashing into the frame in the event of a fall. The RENDER has a 150/160mm range of spring at the front and 140 mm at the tail and accepts tyres up to 2.6” wide.

Bosch eMTB Technology
Bosch Performance Line CX 2021
The Bosch Performance Line CX offers a unique eMTB experience: Compact, lightweight and with more power, it combines high-quality materials, an extremely powerful drive and high-end sensors. This brings eMountain biking on the trail to a whole new level. From model year 2021 with a torque of up to 85 Nm, new features in the motor control and a further development of eMTB mode – all as a software update. For a thrilling riding experience: more natural, intuitive and powerful and an absolute benchmark in its class.
What is new with the Bosch Performance Line CX engine in model year 2021?
Performance upgrade and new features
A riding experience that sets the benchmark: From model year 2021, the Performance Line CX ensures even more riding enjoyment on the trail – with further developed software and a maximum torque of 85 Nm. The increased torque ensures greater performance, supporting you with even more power, especially in low cadences. In eMTB and Turbo mode, this leads to significantly faster acceleration and makes hill starts much easier. Thanks to a broader cadence range, unpredictable riding situations can be mastered even more effectively – for example in the case of late gear shifting or accelerating out of tight corners. Riding remains smooth and free from jolts, even when out of the saddle or in Turbo mode.
Next-level eMTB mode
The progressive riding mode for every occasion: Advanced eMTB mode ensures eMountain bikers are well-prepared for whatever riding situation the trail may have in store. New sensor and motor control functions give eMountain bikers a much wider range of dynamic and natural support. Riders continue to benefit from the proven technology of eMTB mode: Depending on pedal pressure, progressive motor support adapts perfectly to the riding situation. The improved adjustment of eMTB mode ensures optimum traction control in all gears and enables organic handling (AKA ‘power on demand’). Start-up behaviour is much finer and more sensitive – especially in low gears. Due to the increased torque, the drive unit supports an even wider cadence range.
Extended Boost is the unrivalled function for negotiating exposed roots, steps and stones on the trail with ease, even uphill. The eMTB can be maneuvered with much greater agility and ease on technical sections. The unique dynamism means that obstacles can be overcome with ease by applying the right amount of pressure to the pedal. The pedals rarely, if ever, jam. The new, innovative function in eMTB mode can be controlled to optimum effect in all riding situations. If the front wheel is already on the step, a slight pedal pressure is all it takes to give the decisive “kick”. This takes pedal management to a whole new level.

For the ultimate Uphill Flow
For powerful eBiking in the mountains and on rough terrain: The eMTB mode of the Performance Line CX and Performance Line switches between the Tour and Turbo modes. To control the bike even on difficult sections, the further optimised eMTB Mode supports eMountain bikers with maximum sensitivity, allied with progressive power delivery: with a maximum torque of up to 75 Nm on the Performance Line and 85 Nm on the Performance Line CX and motor support between 140% and 340%. Depending on the pedal pressure applied, the motor dynamically boosts the rider’s own performance. The eBiker does not have to change the riding modes manually. Starting on steep slopes is no problem, while riding on mountain trails is noticeably easier and the eMountain biker benefits from significantly better traction. This provides a natural riding sensation and optimum performance on the trail.
Improved coordination and extended boost
New sensor and motor control functions in the Performance Line CX give you a much wider range of support, even more dynamically and naturally. The improved adjustment of eMTB mode ensures optimum traction control in all gears and enables organic handling (“power on demand”). Start-up behaviour is much finer and more sensitive, especially in low gears. Due to the increased torque, the Drive Unit supports an even wider cadence range. Extended Boost is the unrivalled function for negotiating exposed roots, steps and stones on the trail with ease, even uphill. The eMTB can be manoeuvred with much greater agility and ease on technical sections.
