 Highly recommend for all mtn slaying!!! Trail riding, lift serve, perfect Utah desert bike.. I love riding my slayer! From up in the high alpine to the lowly desert rides. This bike pedals awesome up and shredes the DH. It work well for bike park use too. Nothing is out of question for the slayer.. Not bad for xc either!

 Killer bike. Best I have owned. I use it for all mountain, and moderate FR/DH. The bike handles great in all but the knarliest terrain where a DH bike is more suited. I am surprised that Rocky's videos of the Slayer on the trail make it seem like an XC bike. It is not. It is light climbs great do doubt but no XC bike I know of can handle the jumps, drops and rock gardens I have plowed through with my Slayer. Don't let the absence of rad DH video press fool you. The bike is way versatile and tilted more to the DH side of all mountain than XC.

 I've had a few Slayers and they just keep getting better. I was disappointed Rocky moved production to China, but R&D is still done in Vancouver as is they're head office. I find this bike slays my buddies on both the uphill and the downhill. Not as plush as my 09 Slayer but climbs better.

 This is my new ride and I have been very happy with it so far. Things to note, it has a really short top tube and will you will need to get use to it(if using it in more of an all moutain xc vs DH), and this thing climbs like nothing I have ever ridden. A+++ Rocky Smile

 It was originally purchased as a 2nd bike to my primary ride a 29xc bike...well I kept pulling this bike out to ride more and more and eventually sold the race bike and use this as my primary ride. High fun factor bike!

 Pros:
Good for just about anything
Can hit jumps
Can take at most 5foot drops
Great for ripping down the trails

Cons:
Terrible at large moto whips (trust me, I would know)
Very shaky over single track roots
If you dont know how to tune your derailures correctly, your will not be happy when the going get bumpy or very steep uphill, the chain always skips
