PRESS RELEASE: Haro

Owen Marks is an absolute beast on the trails and a great guy to boot and so we're excited to announce the launch of our newest partnership with Owen Marks. And as fate would have it, we welcomed him into the Haro family at the exact same time that we're launching the highly anticipated, Thread Slope! And so with that, buckle in and enjoy as Owen drops in on some beautiful trails and lets loose on the all new Haro Thread Slope.



Brand new for 2019, the Thread line brings Freestyle MTB models with Aluminum frames back to Haro Bikes. Light, rigid, precise and built for shredding, the Thread line offers three models with two hardtails and one dual-suspension. The Thread Slopestyle is the ultimate model in this new line.

With its new 2019 X6 tubing dual suspension frame, it features 100mm of front travel with its Manitou Circus Expert fork and 80mm of rear travel without any chain stretch thanks to its central BB shell pivot for a simple, solid and efficient single-speed suspension platform, which provides increased pump to go higher and forgive harsh landings. Light and precise, the Thread Slopestyle features a gravity-proven FSA Gradient cockpit and crankset with a 30-14t gearing ratio, sealed bearing Premium Nylon Slim Pedals, Spank Spoon rims, Pivotal MTB saddle and alloy seat-post, and a new Haro oversize sealed rotor for fast bar-spin action.

The Thread Slopestyle offers a unique combination with its custom alloy detangler and hydraulic-assisted rear brake with the innovative TRP HY/RD disc caliper for high-performance braking and an unmatched bar-spinning experience...

 Looks almost exactly like a P.Slope. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.

 You mean a transition double.

 @seraph: that's was my thought as well.

Good looking bike

 @seraph: agreed, except I feel it improves on the P.Slope because the seat tube isn't interrupted. Sometimes it's nice to raise your seat up enough to pedal around town which is impossible on the slope, but you could on this!

 @davemays: that's a good observation. That cul de sac is odd on the p slope. The linkage here is a nice change.

 Aluminum is the new Carbon; only 50-60% less expensive and 100% completely recyclable. Where did this magical material come from!?!
  • 13 8
 what percent actually gets recycled? I bet it’s really low.

 @Mattntp:
Seriously, this post pole bs has got to stop. All of a sudden pb folks are not only engineering but also material life-cycle doctors. Shows what a couple of choice images and a video can do the the collective popular opinion.
Sick of it.

 @Mattntp: It's one of the most readily recyclable materials on the planet.
Paraphrasing from a 2009 whitepaper from the International Aluminum Institute: "In 2005, an aluminium mass balance for the aluminium recycling industry in the EU-15 was carried out by Delft University of Technology [...] real metal losses for all scrap melted are usually less than 2%, i.e. the net metal yield is above 98%"

 @dirtyburger: I'm generally a snob who's quite eager to detect ignorance, but I don't see your point here. Honestly it's not that hard to look a lot of these things up. If you have a hair of quantitative ability and access to a computer, you can figure out basic information on things like materials lifecycles while you're taking your morning dump. It doesn't take a materials scientist to understand the generalities.

 @trialsracer: I was talking about how many actually get recycled in the real world. There is no doubt that it can be recycled, but that doesn’t mean it does. Even if u put it in the recycling bin they may just put it in landfill
  • 3 2
 @Mattntp: gets a higher price than cans I assure you the reuse recycle rate is high dump a pile of cracked frames/cranks/rims in an alley see how long they last. Scrappers

 My tutor (ex aluminium foundry technical manager of 35 years) said that only 3% of aluminium is yielded from its ore, in other words you need to mine a shit load for a small amount, therefore if we are truly environmentally focused we should be holding on to our rides as long as possible or buying used

 @sewer-rat: This!!!
Bauxite mining and processing is no joke and carbon waste seems like a nicer alternative to the waste aluminum creates during refining.

 And now ladies and gentleman the award for the most tucked up, closest to the frame rear shock, goes to . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . Haro. I like it.

 I’m still dreaming of a slopestyle bike with 24” wheels. Yes, I am a dinosaur...

 Haro has come a long way since the last time I owned one in 2000.. the Haro EX2!

 Everything but a front brake. Yay for horizontal dropouts! Guy is an amazing rider to boot. Nothing but good things. Except for the price I guess, but, "you get what you pay for". I honestly don't want to leave my bicycle anywhere, which is stupid, should be worth like 1100$ maximum, so people can freaking ride them places. Like you got a 2700$ bike, probably be gone in ten minutes.

 Bring back the Blammo, I always wanted one!

 More slope options the better.

 Needs longer top tube. Can't do a "one size fits all", cause well... one size can't fit all.
  • 30 1
 I think you're shopping in the wrong aisle mate. This is a slopestyle bike, TT only needs to be long enough so the wheel clears your front foot. Any longer and it would start to hinder the purpose that this bike is designed for.

 @webby01: pssshhhhhh needs a 63deg HTA and a 76deg STA

 @me2menow: and a bottle holder whilst rocking super boost

 It needs double top tubes for that retro Haro style (borrowed from Torker)
  • 4 2
 @webby01: Lol no mate, I'm not shopping in the wrong isle, I'm 6'2" and need a longer top tube to feel comfortable. IE my Kona Shonky at 24.5" has a top tube 2 inches longer. And again, you can't have the same frame for a 5'6" rider as a 6' rider, it doesn't make sense.
