The Slope Frame-set is a radical bike for big moves that takes over where dirt jumping hardtails are not enough. It’s most important feature is that it enables true single speed setups with no chain tensioners or standard derailleur / single front ring setups. The frame is really very stiff torsionally – we have been throwing 180’s and 360’s for days on end and experienced absolutely no problems. The suspension won’t hamper you- we bet you can pull off just about every street trick that you can do on your hardtail.
In the rear end you will find a 4-bar linkage that gives several advantages:
– lateral stiffness of the rear end of the bike
– minimised side loads on the shock, eliminating excessive shock wear and friction
– an optimised shock rate curve.
Slope Frame-set is fitted with a custom Rock Shox Monarch RL shock and FSA headset.
Available with shocks: Rock Shox Monarch RL with custom tune
