  • Buy now, electrify later. We can recommend several systems to electrify this bicycle now or in the future as your kids grow.

SUMMARY

If you've held back from buying a longtail - not because of how it rides, but because of how difficult it can be to dismount with a heavy load, the Swoop is here to save the day. Swoop is a deep step-through model that is every bit as stable as the traditional EdgeRunner. A 15mm thru-axle fork brings performance and safety to the longtail design by increasing torsional rigidity and giving you better control over your bike.

Xtracycle opted for a Shimano Acera shadow drivetrain which is a nice blend of performance, weight and value. Enjoy smooth shifting through 27 gears and excellent stopping power thanks to Shimano hydraulic brakes. Reflective Schwalbe Big Ben tires offer excellent flat protection and extra visibility, 

Swoop comes in three sizes (S, M, L) and is highly configurable. Keep that in mind when thinking about pricing - the standard price only includes the mesh wheelguards pictured - everything else (kickstands, bags, kid equipment) cost extra.  But don't worry - it's worth it.  Xtracycle's products have excellent resale value and amazing reliability.

EdgeRunner Design: EdgeRunner was the first production longtail to switch to a 20” rear wheel. This small wheel design creates a much more stable ride than other longtail bikes. The small wheel also shortens the overall bike length which increases the ease of storage and lowers the center of gravity of the cargo and/or passengers preserving a natural ride experience.
