|The Slayer SS has more R&D ride testing time than any other bike in our history. If we had a nickel for every time we've been asked when we'd finally release it to the public, we'd have a lot of nickels. We hope you'll agree that the 2013 Rocky Mountain Slayer SS was worth the wait. Factory riders Geoff Gulevich, Jordie Lunn, Jarrett Moore, and Wink Grant have worked closely with our R&D department - obsessing over the geometry, shaving unnecessary weight, and testing a variety of designs - to deliver what we believe is the best slopestyle package on the market. An example of one feature they demanded was water bottle braze-ons on the downtube to mount their shifters out of the way and protected during contest runs.|
The short, 406mm (16'') chainstays keep things playful, while the roomy 610mm (24'') effective top tube length lets you throw the bars even if you run 'em uncut. Dual slalom? Absolutely. Want to set it up with a dropper post for some trail shredding? Don't see why not. And, with 100mm of stiff, custom-tuned rear travel the Slayer SS is as comfortable cruising through your local dirt-jump set as it is cork-flipping the cabin stepdown at Crankworx. The Slayer SS uses our patented SmoothLink suspension system. In contrast to many single pivot SS frames on the market, the Slayer SS is pedal neutral and has a progressive suspension curve.
