There's certainly been an increase in the number of brands adding slopestyle-specific bikes to their range recently. This trend doesn't look to be slowing down, yet in recent years, one of the first brands to offer a slopestyle bike to consumers, Transition Bikes, pulled their model from the line.

They are unlike the vast majority of mountain bikes out there, which most of us can sling a leg over and go for a ride on - perhaps not to their fullest, but we can get down a trail or two. Slopestyle bikes, however, are a completely different breed, but be that as it may, put your hands up if you've always wanted one?
