Description

All killer, no filler. The Rocky Mountain 2018 Slayer Carbon Frame is a full on enduro missile.

With a pedigree of success on the most aggressive Enduro World Series tracks, the all-carbon Slayer’s descending aptitude and uncanny ability to hold speed in rugged terrain are matched with surprising pedaling efficiency. Predictable and capable, Rocky Mountain 2018 Slayer Carbon Frame rate curve provides good support at sag and a moderate ramp towards the endstroke—perfect for sending bike park laps and big mountain lines.

Technologies

Suspension: Size Specific Tune

Size Specific Tune ensures that riders of all sizes get the right balance of small-bump compliance, mid-stroke support, and end-stroke progressiveness. Our design team does custom shock tunes based on real world field testing, and adjusts each tune for specific frame sizes.

Suspension: Smoothlink Suspension

Smoothlink™ suspension is efficient yet supple when you’re on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design philosophy is centred on ride characteristics; each bike platform we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky Mountain ride feel.

Frame Construction: Smoothwall Carbon

Smoothwall™ carbon uses one of the world’s most sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability. We eliminate excess resin and fibers by using rigid internal molds instead of traditional air bladders. We then utilize different types of carbon in specific frame areas to maximize stiffness and impact resistance while minimizing overall weight.

Geometry: RIDE-4 Adjustment System

The RIDE-4™ adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry with a pair of Allen keys. Four configurations are possible thanks to one rotating chip. This allows for subtle geometry changes with minimal effect on your shock tune. Geometry setup is a complex artform with huge variables in rider style, preference, terrain, and ability. We do recommend the use of professional services, but we also believe that learning to dial in your own bike is the best way to fully understand its performance.  When adjusting your RIDE-4™ position, make gradual, incremental changes, take notes, and be methodical. Don’t adjust in a hurry before a big ride. Take your time and enjoy the process. RIDE-4™ Setup Guides EnduroSlayer
