Must Watch: Thomas Vanderham, Rémi Gauvin, & Carson Storch on the New Slayer in 'Oscillation'

Aug 20, 2019
by Rocky Mountain Bicycles  

Back and forth, forward and back. Mastery on the bike comes from constant repetition. Whether it’s your hundredth time down a trail or you’re about to drop into a new one for the first time, steady, well-rehearsed motions are what will get you through. So ride fast and send it deep, because the Slayer is built for those who charge.

 Almost every element of this video is near perfection: filming, drone operating, editing, color grading, shot compostition, the music choice... Rocky Mountain, the riders, and the film crew, you guys elevated the bars so so much!

 Most of us are living on life support machines since the rise of 650b carbon bikes.

 @Germanmike: Agree, probably a shit film, just watch Repo Man instead! It's is still the best ever. "I know a life of crime has led me to this sorry fate, and yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am."

 I work as a cam assistant on commercials and I am WETTING MYSELF at the progression of film making in our sport. The amount of time/planning/effort this must have taken is mighty impressive. big props Harrison and Liam!

 Storch on a dual crown slayer?

 The new Slayer is compatible with a 200mm dual crown. Carson was running his at 180mm.

 @RockyMountainBicycles: Does that mean that the Maiden is dead? Cause damn I love my Maiden...

 For a second when I saw that I thought it was 2004 again....when you could put any fork you wanted on any bike!

 @RockyMountainBicycles: It's a sad day when Rocky doesn't produce a DH bike! What has this world come to?
Hell, you don't need to change it, it works great as it is, just make an all black frame (circa my '16 Unltd) and keep it available. You don't even have to make that many. And bring back the damn Flow DJ! Just a few simple steel tubes torched together, you already have the geometry, just make a few frames available to keep us loyalists happy! I promise they'll sell. You can even carry them over year to year if they don't.

 OMG, this is the best edit to come out in a long long time...

Overall rating: 1/10

Perfect use of slow motion 10/10
Perfect tunes 10/10
Perfect cinematography 10/10
Perfect Riding 10./10
Perfect Drone usage 10/10
Perfect Scenery 10/10
Absolutely crap length, needed to be at least 40 minutes long, scaling factor 10% of overall score Smile

So sick, reminded me of Follow me and old Silvia editing.
Awesome.

 Great promo. Cool idea if they switched terrain. Remi you go ride Utah, Caron rip some singletrack and well Thomas, you can ride everything.

 The section of when the rider was in the forest chasm really reminds of Silvias video from like 2011-2012. www.pinkbike.com/video/250332 like 2:30's

 Man, those silvia videos were awesome

 "Designed for: All Mountain" - I'm confused. Didn't that use to mean meaty trail bike circa 140-150mm? This looks like freeride to me. Or what would the new freeride be?? Big Grin

Awesome vid and bike though

 Think of it like this, you can ride all!!! the trails on the mountain with this bike!!!

 Cool vid. Seems a lot like the GT Traitors video though where it appeared that the marketing team thought of a "cool" name for the video and then had to come up with goofy description to try and make it seem relevant.

 Reverse! Thought of the video and then had to come up with a name Smile

 Pretty lame that their no option for air shock but two of them ride one ...i can say that I much prefer air over a coil and wish it would of been at least one option

 The kinematics are fully compatible with both, we recommend the Fox Float X2 or the Rock Shox Super Deluxe.

 @RockyMountainBicycles: suck tonhave to pay extra for a swap

Just think at least one model should of cane with a x2 since anyone on your team is gonna ride one anyway

 Nice job for sure. I'd say that's a proper weapon to Slay the mountain for sure! Doesn't hurt if you're also a pro!
