There’s something about a dialed BMX bike that is so hard not to want to check out. We recently got ahold of Radio Bikes team rider and all around beast on the streets, Leon Hoppe, to get a closer look at his current Toren setup that he’s been out putting his pegs and freecoaster to good use on! Hit the jump to take a closer look at Leon’s bike along with a few riding shots, a few bonus questions and some of his recent footage! Let’s do this!
Name: Leon Hoppe
Radio Bikes dropped Leon Hoppe’s official welcome to the team edit that’s packed full of lines and grinds on grinds. Take a look!
“Leon Hoppe is one of the most talented technical street riders in Germany right now and has been working hard over the past few months on his welcome edit filmed on the streets of Cologne and Frankfurt. Leon really went in hard on this one and he certainly didn’t disappoint. This is one edit you do not want to miss out one. Welcome to the team buddy!

We have been hearing that Radio Bikes was going to be making some moves here and it looks like they’re well on their way based off this news! They have just added the young gun shredder from Germany, Leon Hoppe, to their time! Expect to see plenty more from him in the future!
“We would like to officially announce that 17 year old German street slayer Leon Hoppe has just joined the Radio Bikes team!
Leon is part of the new generation of hugely talented technical street riders bursting out of Germany at the moment and we couldn’t be more stoked to welcome him in to the Radio family. Along with the ability to land some of the most un-thinkable tricks with ease, Leon has an attitude towards riding that makes him the perfect addition towards the team and we can’t wait to start going on trips with him.
Leon came into the Radio office today to build up a brand new setup including our Toren frame, Siren Bar and some 2015 prototype parts you will be hearing about real soon. We will be working closely with Leon and the rest of the Radio Bikes team on developing our new range for next year including a our 2016 line of complete bikes, a new frame, fork, freecoaster hub and more…
You will be able to see Leon killing it for us at the WTP Autumn Session contest next weekend in Trier and on team trips and projects we have planned for this year.”
20 Inch Connects dropped this new edit of Leon Hoppe getting some lines in at the park during the Belgian BMX Open! Take a peek and what he cooked up for you!
“We traveled with some German drivers together to Hasselt to the Belgian Bmx Open. There, we shot with Leon Hoppe, who made the second place in the Pro Street Contest, a video with endless lines through the park.
